Grilled salmon with watercress sauce


Salmon fillet x 2

1 bag of watercress (or rocket if following a low fodmap diet)

1/2 pint of lactose free milk

2 teaspoons of gluten free flour dissolved in a little water

1 oz margarine


serve with potato roasted with a little spray oil, thyme and lemon juice, grilled lemon and pak choi


Grill the salmon, pak choi and a slice of lemon

Roast potato with a little spray oil, juice of 1 lemon and 3 sprigs of thyme

Melt butter and add milk and gluten free flour dissolved in a little water and cook till  thickened, add finely chopped watercress and salt to taste.

Watercress has not been tested for fodmap content that I can see, which is a shame, but if you are following a low fodmap diet you could replace the watercress with rocket instead. This should provide the same peppery taste.

Serves 2

I am a state registered dietitian. My speciality is dietary treatment of gut disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease, lactose & fructose malabsorption and multiple food intolerances. I have had lots of experience in other areas of dietetics and I wished to start this blog to spread the word about evidence based dietary treatments and dispel much of the quackery that is common with these diseases. All information on this site is of a general nature and is based on UK based treatments and guidelines. Please see your healthcare practitioner should you need more country specific information.
