Salmon with olives, capers and cherry tomatoes

Difficulty 1/5

I love this recipe because the acidity from the white wine with the olives, capers and cherry tomatoes does wonders to a piece of perfectly pan-fried salmon. You can even use this with other fish you have at hand and it would still be great. On the side, I did some baked potatoes which are super easy and you can use with other dishes you like.

Salmon and spinach lasagna

Difficulty 1/5

I loved this lasagna! The salmon is very delicate and goes amazing with the spinach. Also, for the bechamel sauce we first infused the milk with rosemary, so that the filling then has this light scent of rosemary that goes great with the salmon. It’s really easy to make and it’s quite different from your everyday lasagna. Continue reading Salmon and spinach lasagna

Roasted vegetables, smoked salmon, poached egg and crunchy quinoa

Difficulty 2/5

To tell you the truth, the only reason why I mark this as a 2/5 difficulty is because of the poached egg, that can be tricky at first. Other than that, it’s super easy and an ideal recipe for you to experiment on and vary as many things as you like, so you use whatever you have in the fridge. The veggies go into the oven with olive oil that we first infuse with rosemary, saffron and garlic, then it’s just a matter of cooking them in the oven. Just buy a pretty smoked salmon and practice that poached egg so you can use it for many other things. And if you’re too scared of poaching the egg, you can cook a hard-boiled egg or have it cooked midway. Finally, I’m going to teach you how to toast quinoa! What? Toast quinoa? Yes! It’s AMAZING and once you have it you’ll add it to everything: salads, yogurts, fruits, etc. Also, if you’re like me, you’ll loooove that triangles tea towel in the picture, so I’ll leave the link from where I bought it: Colas Home. This girl is super talented and has lots of other home accessories and they’re all pretty. Continue reading Roasted vegetables, smoked salmon, poached egg and crunchy quinoa

Asian flavours salmon tartare

Difficulty 1/5

This is definitely one of this dishes that you would order in a restaurant and say to yourself “I would never be able to do this”, but actually it’s extremely easy to do. I love the sauce for this one, it’s tasty to an extreme and makes the softness of the salmon come through. The avocado, as it’s fatty like the salmon, makes the mouthful very pleasurable, and the slightly sour sauce with the spring onions and shallots makes it a perfect dish :). It’s very fresh and should be serves really cold with some nice toasts. Continue reading Asian flavours salmon tartare

Corn fritters with smoked salmon, sour cream and dill

Difficulty 1/5

This recipe is super simple yet it looks really complicated! Also, I’ll give you al the tips so that you can surprise your guests without being a slave to the kitchen all day long! The sweetness from the corn works amazing with the saltiness of the smoked salmon and the sourness from the sour cream mixed with cream cheese. Also, that little sprig of dill gives out so much flavour! Works great with fish in general :).

Asian flavours salmon papillote

Difficulty 2/5

Oh my god this salmon, oh my god! If you’ve never tried salmon this way, it’s so smooth, the texture remains smooth and moist, not flaky and dry like it turns sometimes if not correctly cooked. A papillote is basically cooking inside paper or foil in the oven, usually accompanied by liquid so that it’s cooked by the steam within the chamber. Thus, it’s a great experience when you open it at the table and the fragrance comes out to greet you. This time I marinated the salmon in soy sauce, ginger and lemon grass and cooked it with it. YUM! And to go with it we did some sticky long grain rice with peanuts and broccoli that we cooked and then pan fried with garlic, ginger and sesame oil. YUM!!!!
