You know what I learnt this week? NO ONE likes salmon. I like salmon, maybe you like salmon? But NO ONE I know likes salmon. Or they are allergic. How selfish.
Unfortunately I only learnt this after defrosting a 4 pack of salmon steaks, and only 3 steaks in, I’m beginning to wonder how much I like salmon…
For rounds one and two of salmon groundhog day I just threw those fishy fillets in the oven and squeezed lemon over the top. By round three I needed something different.
So I combined two tablespoons of honey, two of soy sauce, two teaspoons of mustard and a dash of lime juice. I fried the last two salmon fillets in a bit of olive oil on each side until cooked. Then I removed the fillets, put the honey soy mustard concoction in the pan and let it simmer away for about two or three minutes.
I made some cous cous (rice’s friendlier and easier cousin) and steamed some beans then poured half the sauce on top.
It was outstanding.
And today I get to have it again for lunch… Yay….
Do YOU like salmon? How should I cook it next time?
