Smoked Salmon Salad with Lemony Baked Courgettes and Caper Berries

As snowdrops are flowering and daffodils are starting to shoot. I decided to make myself a nice zingy and light salad. I always associate courgettes with summer so thought I would use them to give myself hope that winter will be over soon. This definitely reminded me of summer and holidays. It was yummy and did take me to a much warmer place.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 100g smoked salmon
  • Small bag salad leaves
  • 1 medium courgette, cut lengthways then sliced into 1cm pieces
  • 4 caper berries, left whole
  • Pinch of salt, pepper and dried oregano
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • Zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees fan. Add the courgettes, capers and the ½ tbsp of oil (don’t use more otherwise they go soggy) to an oven proof dish. Season with the salt, pepper and oregano. Give it a mix so the everything is coated. Bake in the oven for 30 mins.
  2. To assemble the salad, add the leaves to a bowl. Slice the capers discarding the stalks. Spoon them over the salad along with the the courgettes and finish off with torn pieces of salmon. Enjoy 😊
