  • 250 g macaroni
  • 240 g salmon fillets
  • 1 small red onion finely chopped.
  • ½ red pepper diced.
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoon reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 100 g frozen peas
  • Salt and freshly grated pepper


  • Put the salmon fillets on a lightly greased baking tray, place under the grill and cook for about 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Begin to cook the macaroni in a pan of boiling water as per the packet instructions.
  • Whilst the salmon and macaroni are cooking quickly chop the red onion and red pepper.
  • Remove any skin from the salmon, flake the meat and mix in a large bowl with the onion and pepper. Stir in the mustard, lemon juice and mayonnaise.
  • Approximately 2 minutes before the end of the macaroni cooking add the frozen peas into the same pot.
  • When the pasta and peas are cooked, drain well then tip the macaroni and peas into the salmon mayonnaise bowl. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  • Season to taste.
  • Serve warm. Or serve cold. If putting in the fridge until later be sure to remove so the pasta can return to room temperature.
