  • Soup plate
  • Clingfilm
  • Fork
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Bowl


  • Start by cooking the salmon in the microwave: place your two salmon steaks in a microwave-safe deep plate. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    Cover the plate with cling film (check that it can withstand heat in the microwave, more info in our "Tips and Tricks" section at the end of the recipe) and cook everything at maximum power for 4 minutes.
  • Remove the cling film and cut the salmon into large pieces. Set aside.
  • In a salad bowl, mix the drained chickpeas and chopped red onion.
    Rinse your orange and remove its zest. Remove the skin then collect the flesh. Cut it into pieces and add it to the salad bowl along with the pieces of salmon and mix.
  • For the vinaigrette: in a bowl mix the yogurt, orange zest, clementine juice and chopped dill.
  • Pour your vinaigrette into the salad, mix everything, and enjoy!

Should we use an organic orange when removing the zest?
It is in fact recommended to use an untreated orange. Otherwise, too many pesticides could harm your health. And even in the case of an organic orange, don't forget to rinse it before removing the zest :-)

Which cling film to use for cooking salmon in the microwave?
When you buy cling film in the supermarket, check the packaging to see if it says it can withstand heat. You will quickly have your answer thanks to the addition of a “microwave” pictogram, the term “2 in 1” or simply an explicit sentence.

How long will this salmon salad last?
You can store this salad in an airtight container for 2 days in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze this salmon salad?
You can freeze this salad if you wish, but make sure that the foods used have not already been frozen (like the salmon for example). We advise you to freeze it separate from the sauce and add the latter on the day, at the last moment.
