Bonjour my friends,
It’s been a least 3 weeks since my last post. I try to post a recipe every week, but I have been so busy lately, blogging is sadly not at the top of my to-do list. And since I’ve been so busy, the cooking has to be easy, fast but still delicious. So one evening, I was looking through my fridge/freezer in search of inspiration. As a side note, I must add that it is not always easy to be “inspired” after a long and busy day at work. To my surprise, my few brain cells still left functioning at that point, did manage to come up with an idea.
Two pieces of frozen salmon, tomatoes and mozzarella, et voila! I wasn’t sure about “marrying” salmon and mozzarella, but I took the risk, and turned out it taste pretty awesome!
I do hope you guys enjoy this recipe. Keep it in mind for those busy days when you get home and don’t feel like thinking!
Salmon as Easy as Un, Deux, Trois:
For 2 people:
- 2 pieces of salmon
- 1 sliced tomato
- 1 fresh mozzarella ball, sliced
- Fresh chives (from my mother in law’s beautiful garden), chopped
- Salt, Pepper
Pre-heat oven at 375
Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper. Place each salmon piece in the center of the paper. Add a slice of tomato, a slice of mozzarella. Continue alternating a slice of tomato then mozzarella. Add chopped chives.
Close parchment paper, so salmon can cook “à l’étouffée” (fancy, I know)
Cook in oven for 20 to 30 min (depending on size of salmon). Add salt and pepper
Serve with quinoa.
Secret Ingredient: fresh mozzarella
Radio Station: Justin Timberlake
Movie to watch after dinner: Star Trek (2009). Yes, I do really like these new Star Trek movies. Lots of cute guys saving the world, what’s not to like?
So Enjoy, Bon Appétit and C’est la Vie!
