  4. Heat a pan and add the salmon cubes. Sear them on medium heat for a couple of minutes from all sides.
  5. Tip the broad beans herb mix onto the pan and stir. Add a little from the boiling water or cream if you prefer and lower heat.
  6. Let the salmon cook for another 10 minutes until the sauce thickens and the salmon is cooked through. Adjust seasoning.
  7. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Serve next to Basmati rice.
