This winning low-carb salad boosts a combination of flavours and textures that make every mouthful perfect harmony! Small details like toasting the pumpkin seeds beforehand, quick-pickling the thinly-sliced red onions and using roasted sesame oil makes this salad sensational. I used equal amounts of watercress and pea shoots as I find watercress can be a slightly dominating flavour for this salad.

Instructions
  1. Place the thin slices of red onion into a little bowl and pour over the red wine vinegar. Toss gently to coat and set aside.
  2. Toast the pumpkin seeds in a hot, dry pan. Remove the seeds and set aside to cool.
  3. Using the same pan, heat a tablespoon of the sesame oil and grill the salmon skin-side down over high heat until crispy. Turn each one and reduce the heat to medium, allowing the salmon to gently cook through for another 3-4 minutes. Squeeze one of the lime halves over the salmon and remove the pan from the heat.
  4. In the meantime, combine the pea shoots, watercress, coriander and mint in a bowl and squeeze the second half of the lime over the salad. Add a small drizzle of sesame oil and toss well to coat. Divide the salad between two bowls.
  5. Serve the salmon and the sliced avocado with the salad and garnish the dish with the drained, quick-pickled red onions. Finish with a crumbling of feta and the toasted pumpkin seeds. Lush!
