Salmon - A Healthy Choice
Healthy food choices need not be boring. The sensory properties of food like taste, smell and appearance can be very , very appealing. Salmon is an oily fish from the deep sea with an attractive, bright orange colour that practically begs to be eaten. Team it with ladies finger and capsicum for a practically perfect meal and enjoy all its benefits.
2 salmon fillets, washed in salt & haldi and completely drained; 1 medium capsicum, sliced thick; 6 ladies fingers washed and cut diagonally into 3 pieces each; 3 flakes of garlic, crushed; salt & white pepper to taste; 2 tbsp olive oil for frying.
Heat oil in a non stick pan on the fire. Stir fry the garlic till golden brown. Season the salmon with salt & pepper and fry both sides, turning gently to retain shape. This takes just a couple of minutes. Drain & keep hot. In the same oil quickly stir fry the ladies finger for 3 to 4 minutes on high heat. Add the capsicum and give it a quick toss. Arrange on serving plate with the salmon on top. Serve hot with garlic bread.
