Two delicious meals in under 20 minutes that are made with only a handful of ingredients. Serve together or separately.
I absolutely adore salmon, in all of its incarnations, but I seem to be the only one in this household who does. Which means that this wonderful fish full of natural goodness is normally relegated to a lunchtime menu, for one.
The other week, as I was busy recipe testing for clients, writing for the blog, doing all sorts of household chores and prepping a 3 course feast for datenight, I got a sudden craving for a nice juicy salmon treat. I didn’t have time to
stuff around the stove pan-fry it, because that requires almost udivided attention so I decided to whack it in the oven and hope that it would turn out. I rubbed the fillets with oil and sprinkled, generously I might add, with smoky paprika. That’s it. Within 15 minutes I had a satisfying meal that struck just the right chord.
Later that night Mr Chipconnoisseur and I had said datenight. For our entree I served a cream of leek and potato soup. His was topped with fried salami sticks, mine with chunks of the leftover paprika oven-baked salmon. It was perfect, and that’s why I thought today I’d share both recipes with you.
