Eat to excel with this healthy recipe from fitness entrepreneur Lorna Jane Clarkson.

Ingredients (serves 2)


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • salt and pepper


In a plastic bag place all ingredients and shake to coat the salmon. On a medium-high grill plate, place salmon, skin side down (if applicable).

Let cook undisturbed until the fillet starts to release its juices, approximately 10 minutes. Turn over and cook for a further five minutes, or to your preference.

Serve with lemon wedges, cracked black pepper, celeriac mash and watercress salad.

Celeriac mash

  • 1 large celeriac, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp goat chevre


Steam celeriac and garlic over pot of boiling water until celeriac is tender.

Add salt, pepper, and goats chevre, then mash until well combined.

Watercress salad

  • 1 bunch watercress, roots removed and washed thoroughly
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • Sea salt, to taste


Remove peel from one of the lemons, and cut into segments, removing all seeds. In a bowl combine watercress, lemon segments, approximately 1 tsp of lemon zest, and capers.

To make the dressing, mix together the juice from the remaining lemon, olive oil and salt. Serve with dressing and cracked black pepper.
