Dinner: Baked salmon

Being at home gives certain advantages, for example the fact that I can buy and make all kinds of food I want for dinner with a little help from my father’s money. That means a lot of fresh vegetables and experimenting!

This was a fairly basic dinner, but it tasted delicious! (The pics aren’t the best, I didn’t remeber shooting until after we had taken the first serving. Ignore that, please.)

The potatoes:


Wash as many potatoes as you like and slice them in centimeter-thick slices. Keek the peel on. You can sprinkle almost any seasoning you like on them. I used some thyme, oregano, salt, black pepper and a bit of rosemary. Pour a little oil over it and wrap it in aluminium foil. It should be baked at least half an hour at 200 degrees, so put it in the over before the fish.

The baked salmon:


You’ll need
Salmon
Squash
Paprika
Leek
A couple of hazelnuts
Lemon
Soy sauce

Slice the squash and chop the leek (lots of leek, yumm!), layer it and add sliced paprika. Season it with salt and pepper, and pour some soy sauce and freshly squeezed lemon juice over. You can spare a little lemon juice to be added just before serving as well. At least one lemon, but if you like lemons, two would also be good. I used one for two people.
Put the salmon on top. (Fresh salmon is good, but if you buy frozen, the best thing is to thaw it in the refridgerator. Put it in the same morning, or let it thaw overnight.) Rosemary, thyme and a couple of laural leaves will add the right flavour. Place a little lump of butter on each piece of fish, and in the end, sprinkle some chopped hazelnuts on top of it. Then: bake! Appr. 20 minutes at 200 degrees.

Salad:

I just made a really simple salad with tomato (a sweet type), sugar peas and rucola salad. Lemon juice, a little oil and pepper. Feta cheese would also be good.

Yum!
