Salmon with a Chive, Ginger and Lemon butter glaze


This wonderfully simple recipe was inspired by the back of the salmon package. Have you ever looked at recipes on food packages? I even cooked tofu according to a recipe on the pack of tofu the other day. So next time you pick up a food item have a wee gander at the recipe and use it to inspire your recipe. 




Ingredients:

  • two salmon filets
  • 3 tablespoon of butter softened
  • about 6 pieces of chives finely chopped
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of minced ginger
  • 1/2 a teaspoon lemon rind and a squeeze of juice
Method:

  1. mix in the ingredients into the butter 
  2. brush into the salmon and bake at 300 for 10 minutes 
  3. then put on broil for 5 minutes 
I served the salmon with cous cous mixd with peas and broccoli don't you just adore simple meals like this :-) 






Garden update

and just had to share this picture of some amazing sunflowers I saw when I was out walking the other day

Have a great start to the week

  5. Those sunflowers are stunning!
    I don't usually look at recipes on product packaging, but it makes sense that they'd be developed to make the most of the product. Your salmon looks great!

  6. I always dismiss the package recipe, should I change my ways? Maybe so.

  8. Wow the sunflowers are amazing! I love salmon, it's so quick and easy to prepare and can be prepared with virtually any flavour you like! Yum

  9. Judging by the photos, you have cooked (albeit in an excellent fashion) salmon filet, not steak. Steaks have a piece of the backbone in them and have the advantage of being one thickness across the piece of fish.
