Recipe Notes

To cook the protein and not have it looking all white / grey on your salad (if we wanted that we would be boiling it!) we put a bit of vegetable oil on a pan on high heat and we put the protein on top without moving it around for a couple of minutes so it gets a nice colour. Once seared on all sides if you still need further cooking then you can lower the heat and even put a lid on.
