Seared Salmon Poached in Coconut Milk

I was just talking my my sister Miriam yesterday, and we got onto the topic of FOOD. She reminded me of a Salmon recipe I haven’t made in awhile…and it just so happened that I had a nice big fillet of fresh bluff salmon in my freezer waiting to be cooked to perfection. Dinner sorted.

I absolutely love salmon, but I have this thing when it comes to eating it. I either like it raw – as in sashimi raw, or well done. Nothing in between– not seared with pink in the middle, or medium rare — eeww. I don’t know why, it just makes me queazy to even think about!

This recipe is so yummy, and the perfect light dinner for two. I used a blend of fried cumin seeds, garlic and chilies to spice it up a bit, and the flavors worked so well together. I chose cauliflower as the vegetable, which was served in a bowl topped with the baked salmon fillets and then drizzled with the spiced coconut milk, which turned out almost like a light curry. So delicious!  Continue reading

Simple Butter Bean and Salmon Salad

This simple, yet delicious salad takes about 5 minutes to make so it’s the perfect lunch for when you’re in a hurry… or if you’re good at planning ahead, this is a great meal to prepare in advance so you’ve got your lunch packed and ready to go with you wherever you’re busy day may take you! Unfortunately, I’m not one of those ‘plan-ahead’ types, so I usually get caught throwing my meals together at the last minute – especially when it comes to lunches, and this one turned out so yum! Plus, it’s jam-packed with protein, so it’ll keep you from getting the munchies till dinner.

Thai Red Curry Fish Balls with wok-grilled Green Beans and Zucchini

I’m gonna spare you the gab, and get right down to the tasty stuff. This recipe tastes like an authentic Thai dish, and is probably 100 times better for you then the usual deep-fried fish cakes, since these are oven baked – not fried, and I used no oil in this recipe (other then a spray or two of olive oil cooking spray), so it’s pretty much fat free… try these for yourself, and be prepared to be surprised. (In a very good way of course…)

These curried fish balls can be used in soups like this Thai ginger soup, on top of stir frys, salads, you name it!
