With little preparation or time spent cooking these are an ideal fuss free supper dish. You can vary the salad ingredients according to what you have in the fridge. Any leftover fish can also be added to a salad the next day. For a vegan option use chunks of firm tofu instead of the fish.

You could make this vegan by roasting chunks of tofu in the spices instead of the fish. You will need to cook the tofu for longer – about 20 minutes until golden. Use Coconut yogurt instead of Greek yogurt in the dressing.
