Crumbled salmon in apple and mushroom sauce with salad

I have not had salmon for ages. Thought I should eat salmon as it’s healthy. Even though it’s not on sale I bought it. I also have apples from my sister that have been sitting in my fruit bowl for more than 10 days, if I don’t use it, it will be rotten.

In my fridge my mushrooms too have been left for too long, it will be rotten if I don’t use it. Also got salad which it’s still good. Now I can create a complete healthy meal and not to feel stressed, that the salmon price is over my budget. Since my success in making crumbled tofu. I decided to try it on my salmon.

First, I steam the salmon fillets then coat it with flour, cornflour and experiment using semolina flour. For flavour added these powders: garlic, ginger, chili, nutmeg, and marjoram. Season with salt and black pepper.

Salmon is crispy, flavourful great combination of apple and mushroom sauce and colourful with salad. It sure paid off the price and indeed delicious comforting meal. Let’s cook!!!!
