I definitely enjoy cooking dinner, it's my time to relax or try out a new recipe, but most of all, it's my excuses to cook something healthy that I couldn't get at a restaurant. I grew up on a healthy diet of fish and because of it, I tend to work salmon into my meals at least once a week. Lately a simple salad and smoked salmon have become my go-to ingredients when I still want to cook, but really don't have the time to spend more than 30 minutes in the kitchen. An easy lemon and olive oil dressing, toast, creme fraiche, and layers of the pink smokey meat are all it takes to make a simple and incredibly satisfying meal. Throw in a few shavings of parmesan and a sprinkling of sea salt and the dinner is a unique approach to the standard weekly meal, but so much more gourmet than the quick prep time would lead you to believe.
Also, just a reminder that I'll be featuring a handful of Spring Cleaning tips next week, so make sure to email me your tips for a chance to be featured.
