If you are looking for an uncomplicated fool proof ‘’Date night’’ spectacular, this Salmon is for you!
Salmon is best prepared with only salt, black pepper and lemon. This way you can enjoy and appreciate the freshness.
Pan fried Salmon ingredients:
- Fillet Salmon
Sprinkle of salt, black pepper and paprika ( I prefer adding paprika to add a little extra colour)
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Pan fried Salmon method:
Heat pan with drizzle of olive oil to very hot. Sprinkle salmon with salt, black pepper and paprika on both sides. Fry skin side down first for 3 minutes and gently turn around and fry the other side for another 3 minutes. Squeeze with fresh lemon juice. Rest for 2 minutes. Salmon is best served pink in the middle – so be careful not to overcook
The famous Salmon run takes place from September to November every year. This happens when salmon migrates from the ocean and swim to upper rivers. This means party time for eagles, grizzly bears and fisherman
The eggs of a female Salmon are referred to as ‘’ROE”
Black rice is very high in nutritional value and source of iron and antioxidants (bonus…and off course it looks sooo pretty )
Black rice ingredients:
½ cup Thai Black rice
2 cups Water
65ml Hoison sauce
Black rice method:
Add black rice, salt and water to a pot and bring to the boil. Boil for 10 minutes and reduce heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes. When rice is ready, add Hoison sauce and cook for another 3-4 minutes – only until all liquid and hoison sauce is absorbed
Garnish your perfectly cooked pan fried Salmon and Black rice with edible flowers and micro leaves
