Most children love salmon – and you'll love how quick this meal is to make.
1. Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Season the salmon and place in the pan, skin-side down, leaving to cook for 3–4 minutes.
2. Cook the broccoli in boiling water for three minutes, then add the frozen peas, put a lid on to bring back to the boil, then remove the lid and cook for a further 3 minutes.
3. Turn the salmon fillets and cook for a further three minutes.
4. While these are cooking, put all the dressing ingredients into a small pan with some seasoning. Bring to the boil and bubble for 2–3 minutes before setting aside.
5. Drain the vegetables, tip back into the pan and toss through the chillies, if using, then plate up. Once the salmon is cooked through, place it on top of the vegetables. Pour over the dressing, rip the mint leaves and scatter over the top along with the almonds and serve.
