Springtime Salmon

With the weather finally warming up (slightly), are you also starting to move away from the  filling soups; curries; stews and heavy dishes that have helped to keep you warm and satisfied over the cold months?

This week the weather is undecided. Spring is definitely in the air, with all the blossoms, flowers and birds returning – but winter is still not ready to loose it’s grip!

So, if it is warm in your corner of the world, then enjoy!

This isn’t so much a recipe, but rather an idea for you to make your own delicious salmon creations.

Salmon, I find, other than being a very healthy fish, high in Omega 3 fatty acids, is also quick and easy to cook, and can be seasoned with herbs, or sauces; pan fried, baked or steamed. It also cooks very quickly.

Serve this with a side of quinoa, or wild rice, and your favourite vegetables.
