Like most children, when I was seven years old I had a bestfriend. She use to read the ‘Goosebumps’ book collection to me every time I stayed over. Lent me her barbie dolls. And, later in life wrote my speeches for me…which I got Excellences for, each time. I taught her to tie her shoes and make her laugh. Now, I am about to teach her how to cook Salmon. So this goes out to my bestfriend, whom is good at everything, this is just your cherry on top.

– Ingredients –
Piece of Salmon
Lemon wedge (optional)
If you are feeling saucy, which you will be (optional)
Marinate your fish first in some soy sauce, honey and salt.
Leave for 15mins before cooking.
Quinoa and or Brown rice
Quickly prep your Salmon by massaging coconut oil and sea salt into the meat.
Giving it a generous helping. You can use Olive oil too, I just love the coconut flavour.
Heat a medium sized pan on med/high heat adding your coconut oil.
Once the pan is hot, add your fish, skin side down first. This helps make it crispy. Delicious.
Turn the element down to medium now. And leave the fish to sear for 4 minutes.
Check to make sure it isn’t burning. This can be a sad process if it does.
Turn over the fish to cook for further 8-10 minutes. You can tell when it is done if you look on the side of the fish to see the flesh change colour to a light pink/white. Then she is ready to go.
I have added coconut and lime Quinoa to this dish along with accessible vegetables. You can either choose to wait for days for your quinoa to cook or use the quick and easy microwave options that are everywhere these days.
