Salmon Three Ways

We should be eating more fish, fish is good. If you want to learn more about why oily fish is the answer to many of life’s woes, Fish is the Dish have some great information resources here.  This week, I’m staying away from home and in typical Cate fashion I forgot to pack my camera. So in the absence of high quality photography, here are three quick recipes I knocked up over the past week and posted to Instagram. Supermodel Salmon Salad – Serves 1 1/2 cucumberfew strips smoked salmon50g fennel juice of half a lemon Peel the cucumber as you usually would, then discard the skin and keep on peelin’ on into a bowl until you hit the impossible to peel centre. Slice the fennel as finely as possible and add to the shaved cucumber, then top with the smoked salmon and squeeze the lemon juice over the whole bowl.    Smoked Salmon and Avocado Omelette – Serves 1 2 eggs, beatenfew strips smoked salmonhalf an avocado, mashedfew sprigs fresh dilldrizzle of olive oil Heat …

Spicy Sriracha Fish Noodles

It’s starting to feel like Summer’s on its way out. The light isn’t lasting quite as long every evening and the temperature is slowly creeping downwards – so what better way to whack it back up than with insanely spicy suppers. My first class foodie godparents got us this Sriracha Kaffir Lime Rub and up until this evening I’ve not known quite what to do with it. I’m usually all for making this kind of stuff yourself but let’s face it, it’s a Tuesday and I’m hungry and I’ve been at work all day. Plus, the flavours in this little tin will blow your socks off – if you can get your hands on some, do. If you’re not a fan of spicy food (I’m talking to you Grandad) then this recipe is not for you, however if the very title of this recipe had you interested (I’m talking to you chilli geeks) then please, read on. Serves 2 2 fillets of white fish (I used river cobbler, cheap/cheerful/sustainable) 200g fine green beans (remember to top …

Three Chilli Salmon and Stir-Fried Broccoli with Cucumber & Mango Salad

This looks amazing, this tastes amazing, this is amazing. And I shall tell you for why, the oil found in salmon has been shown to cut leptin levels and help your body process foods more effectively and of course it’s full of our good friend omega 3, also salmon when cooked to perfection (which this is, of course) is pretty much unbeatable.  I should probably explain the three chilli concept, in this dish I used fresh and organic chillis, chilli flakes, and chilli oil – as I’ve mentioned this week, hot and spicy ingredients are great for picking up the pace of your metabolism. The water content in cucumber (similar to melon) is what makes it a metabolism winner, and mango just adds inexplicable deliciousness to the whole vibe. Overall, I’ve done a pretty stand up job of making this entire meal metabolism conscious so give it a try! Serves 3 – with leftovers for lunch 3 salmon fillets 2 tbsps grated ginger 2 chillis 2 cloves garlic 200g mango handful chilli flakes few drizzles chilli oil 1 …
