Prep Time20 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time50 mins

Ingredients

 400 g butternut squash, peeled and diced 2cm
 2 zucchini, sliced into 1cm-thick rounds
 zest of 1 orange
 1 tsp whole fennel seeds
 45 g slivered almonds
 90 g feta cheese
 2 or 3 handfuls rocket leaves
Orange-glazed Salmon
 juice of 1 orange
 1 tsp runny honey
 1 tsp white wine vinegar
 360 g boneless salmon fillet (skin on)

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 220°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

2

Toss butternut squash, zucchini, orange zest, and fennel seeds on a prepared tray with a spray of oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast for about 15 minutes, until butternut squash is tender and starting to caramelise. Turn once during roasting.

3

Combine orange juice, honey and vinegar in a small bowl and set aside. Pat salmon dry with paper towels, remove any remaining bones and cut into 2-3 pieces. Season on all sides with salt and pepper.

4

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frypan on medium heat. Cook salmon, skin-side-down, for about 4 minutes, until skin is crispy. Flip and cook a further 2 minutes for medium-rare, or cook longer to suit your taste. Set aside and cover to keep warm.

5

Wipe pan clean with paper towels and return to medium heat. Add orange glaze mix and allow to bubble and reduce for about 2 minutes, until it is the consistency of maple syrup. Remove pan from heat, add salmon and toss gently to coat in the glaze.

6

Once butternut squash is tender, remove from oven, sprinkle over almonds and roast for a further 5 minutes, until almonds are golden brown and butternut squash and zucchini are cooked through. Remove tray from oven, sprinkle over feta and rocket and toss to combine.
