Lentil Salad with Salmon and Gouda

Salmon used to be the fish of the summer when we only got it from river fishing. Now times have changed and we get high quality salmon from sustainable fish farming all over the world. The salmon is nutritious and very healthy so we recommend having salmon for dinner at least twice in a month and some other fish the two other weeks. This nice recipe we found at the web site foodnetwork.ca where you can find many more good recipes for fish.


1 cup (250 ml) green lentils

1 lb(s) (450 g) Pacific salmon fillet
