This is my absolute favourite plate for an informal meal or get-together. The eggs and beans can be prepared in advance, and it’s an easy way to feed a crowd with minimal effort!

For the salmon

  • 1 side fresh New Zealand salmon (approx. 1.5kg

Method

To make devilled eggs, peel and halve eggs lengthwise. Remove yolks and add to a bowl with mayonnaise, curry powder, parsley and seasoning. Mix together well, and either pipe or spoon ingredients back into egg whites. Refrigerate until using.

Blanch beans in boiling water for 2 minutes, then transfer immediately into iced water. When ready to use, heat butter and oil in a frying pan and fry almond slices until just coloured, Add beans and mix through until just warmed.

Season salmon with salt, pepper & dill. Sear in a heavy-based frying pan or on the barbecue until just coloured. Arrange salad on a large plate, place salmon in pieces over the top and arrange beans and stuffed peppers around the sides. Serve with fresh bread or potato salad.
