It’s a beautiful Spring day in Dublin, definitely one of our warmest this year. The temperature on my car was hitting 17 degrees centrigade, which is a blessing so early on in April.
My inspiration for my dinner tonight, was a simple one. I was shopping this morning and spotted this:
I love the freshness that Basil gives to a meal. I bought this in Lidl for €1.49. It’s now happily sitting on my windowsill for multiple uses during the week. I was wondering what I could put with this as Mr Coeliacpages wasn’t home for dinner and I wanted something quick to cook. So, I opted for Salmon. It’s one of my favourite fish meals. I roast it in the oven at 180 for no more than 10 minutes. I hate salmon that is overcooked and has lost that beautiful softness.
I simply dotted some butter along with salt and pepper before putting into the pre-heated oven.
When the salmon went into the oven I boiled the kettle to pour onto the frozen petite pois. These cook in less than two minutes, so I quickly prepared the salad and a bit of basil to put through the peas that I lightly crushed with a potato masher.
I love a good salad dressing. One of my favourite finds is ‘Mary Berry’s’. It has the right amount of sweetness and pepper for my taste.
This is a dinner that is prepared really quickly and has a nice lightness but yet filling.
Sometimes, food that is naturally gluten free, is as quick to cook as any other convenience food. I had prep, cooking and serving completed in 20 minutes.
