Nommy nom nom salmon

Fish

Ummm ummmm ummm this sweet salmon with sticky coconut rice and fresh greens tasted soo good that I lost my ability to speak!

Easy, nutritional, healthy and quick…a fantastic post work out meal!

Simply make a marinade of:

  • 1tbsp runny honey, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil
  • 1tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 chopped garlic clove

And marinade the salmon for an hour if possible.

Boil 75g per person of basmati rice, when cooked add salt, pepper and 100ml coconut milk and cook for another 5 minutes.

Whilst the rice is cooking boil some broccoli and green beans for just 2-3 minutes, keep them fresh! 

Also grill the salmon for 4 minutes each side. Then serve!

A really light but supremely flavoured dish, the garlic and ginger really zing on your tongue and the creamy rice just takes off the edge. As i said…..nom!

  

Some days I cheat….

Fish

Although I love to be in the kitchen, sometimes time doesn’t always pan out and today was one of those days.

So, to boots I went and a meal deal I got!

I love this little sushi salad, it’s a regular go to and although it looks small it’s decieving and filling!

The juice….it takes some getting used to. 

  
The boots meal deals are really very good value and tasty.

Salmon with more salmon

Fish, Starters

This was the starter I made for my Christmas Day lunch. It’s a salmon mouse in a smoked salmon parcel with caviar, advacado, horse radish cream and beetroot. It’s a really simple dish with a powerful taste.

  

The mouse was made with Creme Fraiche, smoked salmon, capers, anchovies and lemon juice. It’s simply all whizzed together and placed in ramekins lined with smoked. This is then left in the fridge to cool.

It’s a perfect starter, not to heavy and perfectly fresh.

Not just any Smoked salmon sandwich

This recipe is curtesy of the well known Mr Jamie Oliver, it offers a speedy dish with a naughty, satisfying feeling!

I cooked this on a Friday night knowing that I wanted a treat, something tasty but something that wouldnt require huge amount of prep work. This recipe was perfect for that, you could smoke the salmon your self but on this occasion I opted not to. I did however make the basil mayonnaise which is really delicious.

When you bite into this mammoth sandwich you instantly get the feeling of indulgence, soft smoked salmon, sticky sweet bacon, oozing creamy mayo….a total delight. 

Make it, eat it, enjoy!

   
 

Sushi virgin

Fish

I love sushi yet I have never attempted to make it…..until now!!!

Seriously, how easy! I’ll defiantly be making more in the very near future.

It’s pretty much s matter of deciding what taste you want, cooking the rice and rolling it all up….tadahh!!!

   
 
We opted for smoked salmon, prawn and teriyaki mackerel. They were rolled with a mixture of sliced cucumber, pepper and advacado. Served with dipping soy sauce, wasabi paste and wasabi mayo.

Totally tasty. Far too much. Lunch for tomorrow sorted.

Simply health

Fish

Tonights dinner is quite simply about health. Still tasty? Of course, but it’s focus was to provide me with a nutritious protein filled plate of which I could both enjoy and benefit from.

  

  • Cooked smoked salmon
  • Baked cherry tomatoes 
  • Cottage cheese
  • Chili beetroot 
  • Sweet chili sauce

A delicious guilt free dish!

Spicy salmon hodgepodge 

Fish, Food, Foodie, Spicy, Uncategorized

I’ve had a mammoth day today and tonight my dinner needed to be healthy but comforting. I had no meal planned as such and so went with what available ingredients I had in the fridge.

The result was a chili Salmon fillet laid on a bed of crushed potatoes, a sprinkle of sweetcorn and a drizzle of sweet chili sauce (which Gav brought me from Utah!)

It was just what I needed. A seriously flavorful salmon, a sweet hot kick from the sauce and a slight essence of “stodge” to wrap me in the comfort I desired ☺️ Low cal, low fat to boot!!

  

Salmon and watercress sandwich

Fish, Lunch, Toast-it

Last night I delved in to the “toast-it” cookbook and came out with this little beauty.

As I didn’t want something too overwhelming, a sandwich seemed to be a good call and add some fishy protein to the mix, it resulted in a pretty good “after gym” dish.

The cooking process was really simplistic, just a matter of popping it all under the grill really. And, as you would expect with bread and fish, it took but a few minutes!

The result was a crusty thick sandwich with a moist tasty filling which left my fully satisfied. It tasted extra delicious with a glass of Chardonnay! 😊

A healthy leftover dinner worth sharing

Fish, Food, Food general, Foodie, Kitchen

I’m still working through using up all of the left overs in the fridge and attempting to get back on the healthy train…..this meal almost met both of my goals. The butter slightly tinged the health element, ah hem.

So take a nice fillet of salmon, marinade it in olive oil, basil and mint leaves. Fry it in a hot pan 5 minutes before your ready to eat.

Chop up a couple of potatoes and a handful of sprouts, boil them until soft, mash them, season, shapes them into patties and then fry in butter or oil until nicely browned.

Serve your cooked salmon and potatoes cakes with some cooked beetroot and a dollop of natural yoghurt.

Yum!
