Seeing the sun out makes me cook happy food. While I was satiated with my share of Vitamin D, it was time to think about dinner. Some easy-to-cook and beautiful-on-the-eye food which cried out the colors of summer. Even if it was only 9 degrees outside.
Plus its always a nice change when someone else does the cooking- my oven!
I came up with mildly marinated Atlantic Salmon Steaks which were broiled and served with Garden Greens drizzled with some Blue Cheese. I got these huge, succulent salmon steaks which I marinated for a few minutes with only lemon juice. Just before transferring the fish to the oven, I added a generous amount of freshly cracked black pepper and some salt to taste. Drizzled it with some EVOO. All this on a baking tray lined with aluminum sheet.
I broiled the steak on the top shelf of the oven on high for 7-8 minutes before turning on to the other side. Fish tastes like rubber and become dry when you overcook. So Keep checking frequently.
While the fish was cooking, I quickly sliced some red and green bell peppers, red onions, seedless cucumbers, and hot-house tomatoes. Alongside, I julienned some carrots to plate with the fish, colors to match the salmon!
The salad dressing was again a simple mix of lemon juice, black pepper powder, freshly chopped coriander and some blue cheese.
That was our Friday night fishy dinner! Tender, golden in color, and perfect to dispel the last leg of winter, and go out for a very important date with Alice in Wonderland.
