After watching Jamie Oliver cooking his salmon, I had a craving for salmon. Salmon has always been very expensive to eat. It’s way out of my budget. I bought a packet of Atlantic salmon, medley cherries tomatoes and kai lan: Chinese Broccoli.
As usual I love to create my own flavour, just using one spice and instead of salad I opted for Asian green and for colour on my plate added medley cherries tomatoes. I prefer to combine Western and Eastern food, after all we have to eat. Especially when Salmon is over my budget, best buy Asian green in bulk and I can cook it in different method to go with rice or noodle.
If you don’t want to be washing up many utensil, this is best meal to cook. My dinner is simple, colourful, healthy, comforting, satisfied and delicious. Let’s cook!!!!
2 skin on and boneless salmon
1/2 packets of medley tomatoes, washed and drained
1 bunch of Kai Lan, cut into bite size
2-4 Tbs oil
a few shakes of paprika powder
2-4 Tsp minced garlic
Pre heat grill, line tray with foil. Heat oil in a wok till very hot, add kai lan leave until tender; toss around from time to time. Then add garlic and toss again until kai lan cooked through. Plate up equally on plate and cover with foil until needed.
Next rub some oil, salt, pepper and paprika on salmon. Place in the foiled tray with tomatoes already grill for 4 minutes. Grill salmon for 5-7 minutes until light pink or to your liking. Once salmon done, let salmon sit slightly on top of Asian green with grill tomatoes on the side. Serve with sweet white wine.
Note: Grill may vary. Watch your fish and tomatoes doesn’t burn. You can substitutes Asian green for salad or vegetables of your choice.
