Salmon with mustardy celeriac mash

Salmon goes great with spinach and a kick of mustard. Add some celeriac which is in season right now and you’ve got a great nutritious meal. Packed full of protein and low in calories, this recipe is a great addition to your repertoire. Suitable for our challenge diets too.



  • 2 salmon fillets, about 100g/4oz each
  • 700g celeriac, peeled to remove all the knobbly skin and cut into chunks like potato
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 100g baby spinach leaves


  1. Brush the salmon lightly with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Line a grill pan with foil and lay the salmon on top.
  2. Place the celeriac in a pan with cold water to cover. Salt and bring to the boil. Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes until tender. Preheat the grill to medium. Whisk together the mustard, lemon juice, a pinch of sugar, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp olive oil.
  3. Grill the salmon for five minutes on each side. Meanwhile, drain the celeriac, reserving 1 tbsp cooking water. Return the celeriac to the pan. Mash until fairly smooth. Add the spinach, stirring occasionally over a low heat, until wilted. Stir in 1 tbsp mustard dressing and the reserved cooking water. Season.
  4. Spoon the mash on to two warm plates and top each with a fillet. Drizzle over the leftover dressing.
