Salmon + Rice + Asparagus = YUM
This was my dinner tonight. :]
Simple to cook, hearty meals, are often more delicious than the most expensive meal in a fancy restaurant!
Salmon, floured on both sides, pan fried with olive oil, and a mixture of spices (Kosher rock salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper). The flour creates a thin, crispy crust on the fish, and really brings out the flavour and spices.
Cheese rice C/O Uncle Ben's (wild rice is great too).
And my absolutely favourite green, ASPARAGUS! I drizzle a bit of olive oil on the asparagus, sprinkle salt and pepper, and toss. Then I place the asparagus in a roasting pan, put the cover on, and cook at 230C for 10-15 minutes.
A delicious meal. Not calorie light, but it definitely keeps you full for a long time. Also, left overs make a great lunch for the following day.
