Chef Watch | Grilled salmon with spice lentils and king prawns

First-team chef Sean Kyle presents a meal he prepares for the Wolves players after a match, so supporters can try it themselves from home.

This meal is ideal for footballers after a match day, when they’ve exerted large amounts of energy, because it is so high in protein. It’s a dish which can also be served without carbs, just follow the same plan but removed the gnocchi.
