If using dried beans, soak beans over night, cook with bay leaf and garlic clove. Cool before using.

Trim snow peas and blanch in boiling water 30 – 40 seconds to refresh.

Wrap salmon in cling film with dill, tie at both ends and poach 4-5 minutes .

In a salad bowl, put some lettuce leaves and cooked beans, then the snow peas and sliced radish. Flake salmon onto the salad with sliced avocado. Garnish with tomato wedges, capers, and chopped parsley .
