Fillet Salad

I doubt I will ever tire of eating this divine salad, then again, there is something about simple foods that really do it for me.  I often feel the simpler a recipe is, the nicer it is.  If I don’t have black bean sauce in stock, I make a balsamic and olive oil dressing, which is equally as yummy.

Fillet Salad



500g fillet steak
3 baby marrows (zucchinis / courgettes)
1 medium red onion
1 red bell pepper
Salad greens


45ml black bean sauce
60ml peanut oil
15ml lemon juice


  1. Fry the steak in a pan or under the grill for 15 minutes or until medium rare, turning during cooking.
  2. Set aside to relax for 10 minutes then cut into thin slices.
  3. Trim the ends off the baby marrows and slice lengthwise with a potato peeler.
  4. Peel the onion and slice thinly.
  5. Cut the pepper in half, deseed and cut into thick slices.
  6. Toss the baby marrows, onion, pepper and salad greens with the meat.
  7. Mix all the dressing ingredients together and drizzle over the salad.
