Hi this is KK, Sushi Artist / Healthy Muffin Maker / Mum🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog.
I haven’t shared dinner photos for a while, not that I haven’t been cooking, it’s more that I’ve only been cooking everyday food, and felt that it wasn’t really worth sharing.
Rice +Miso Soup (Broccoli and Tomato)
Main dish:Grilled salmon and veggies
Side dish 1: Carrots with sesame
Side dish 2: Eggplant in sweet soy sauce with daikon radish
The 2 side dish can be prepared anytime of the day, can be made double batch so you can eat it the day after. This day, the only different thing I did was to grill the vegetables separately with the fish. I seasoned the grilled vegetable with olive oil+balsamic vineger+french mustard+honey dressing, but didn’t put the dressing on the salmon. It was sprinkled with salt and cooked on all sides.
My secret in cooking the salmon to the right texture is to heat the frying pan nice and hot, and cook the skin first until it is very crispy (but not burnt). Then, using a spatula, cook on all sides until it is cooked but not tough. By cutting some slits on the skin before cooking, you can peek “inside” to make sure that it’s not raw. I don’t use oil when cooking salmon because it is usually very rich and fatty.
This salmon was rather thick, so it took about 12 min all together to cook, but turned out very nice🙂
