Quick-and-Easy Healthy Bean and Salmon Salad


  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbs. gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tbs. mirin
  • 1 tbs. sesame oil
  • ½ cup crushed peanuts
  • 3 tbs. sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut
  • 600g fresh green beans
  • ½ cup shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 x 200g tin of Atlantic salmon


  1. To make the sauce, firstly use a small pan to toast the crushed peanuts, sesame seeds and desiccated coconut. Toast them one at a time until you can start smelling their delicious aromas when your head is over the pan.
  2. Combine these dry ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk in the soy sauce, mirin and sesame oil. Put aside.
  3. In the mean time, use a large pan to steam the fresh green beans and shallots. Place the beans, shallots and ¼ cup of water in the pan and cover with a lid. Steam for 5-7 minutes or until just soft.
  4. Add in the tin of Atlantic Salmon (after getting rid of the excess water found naturally in the tin) to the beans. Mix slowly while letting it cook for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Take the beans, shallots and salmon off of the heat and into a large bowl. Pour over the delicious Japanese-style sauce. Serve and enjoy!
