Our big boys went to a school disco the other night so after making very simple dinners for the 2 little ones, Peter and I got to enjoy a grown up dinner. It was so quick to make and it was just delicious!
- Salmon fillet (ours was about 220g and shared between the 2 of us)
- 2 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 tsp fresh, finely chopped dill
- 1 tsp rinsed capers, chopped
- pinch of salt
- small pinch of ground pepper
- lemon slices
- steamed greens
- cauliflower rice (cauliflower finely chopped in the food processor and steamed)
Heat a frying pan and place the salmon in the pan.
In a small saucepan, place the oil, then add the dill, capers and salt and pepper. Don’t allow to boil just keep warm over a very low heat.
Turn the salmon after a couple of minutes (depending on thickness) and fry for a further 2-3 minutes on the other side.
Lay the salmon on a bed of cauli-rice (or some crushed boiled ‘jacket’ potatoes), top with slices of lemon and drizzle the herb oil over the top. Serve with steamed greens.
P.S. For a bit of variety, and if I’m being a bit lazy, instead of the lemon slices, I just add the juice and zest of 1 lemon to the Herb butter instead.
Tonight I serve the salon on a bed of steamed and crush sweet potato, together with blanched asparagus and roasted beetroot. Yum!
