Quick & tasty herb crusted salmon

Salmon lime 4

This simple recipe is an absolute winner – quick and easy, perfect for busy weekdays but also brilliant if you are having friends over because it is absolutely delicious and looks so good. Please believe me when I say that it is a really, really simple and healthy dish that anyone could make. In fact if you are having friends round for dinner you could cook this in the oven along with the Buttermilk Roast Chicken from my last post and provide a choice of main course (or give them both!). We celebrate New Year’s Eve (also my Dad’s birthday) every year by having my extended family for a big get-together and since I discovered this recipe it has been on the menu because it is stress-free and also very popular.  Continue reading

Super-quick grilled salmon

This is great “fast’ food – it makes a super tasty quick lunch or dinner. It uses simple ingredients and contains those Omega 3 fatty acids that are so good for your heart! I served it with green beans which were steamed, then tossed in a little butter and some toasted flaked almonds. It is so tasty and looks a picture plus it gives the impression that a lot more work and effort has gone into making it.
