Thankfully the sun is still shining when I get back to my car and in fact all day, it has been seasonal bliss.
Ingredients time! I intended to do a shop on the train home but I actually fell asleep! I have a habit of keeping late nights and early mornings and my body is starting to rebel.
On the way home I visualised salmon, salad onions and vegetable rice smothered in sesame seeds.
I read somewhere about the benefits of turmeric (I can’t remember exactly what it did) so I got some of that too. Add some paprika and pesto (thinking ahead) and we’re in business.
I must say I really do have the cooking bug now and it’s a lot of fun, and so much easier to eat healthily.
Wash a cupful of rice in [filtered] water. Place in a small pan and add more [filtered] water. I’ll stop with the parenthesis soon. Add a dash of sesame oil and a sprinkle of paprika. Place on a low heat.
Pre-heat the grill to a medium high heat and foil line a grill pan. Wash the salad onions and chop finely. Grab some garlic and chop that too. Drizzle some oil on the foil and add paprika and turmeric. Drop the chopped stuff on it and mix with your hands.
Wash and dry your hands and then realise that your ingredients will stain anything you touch.
Take the salmon and rub it in the chopped stuff; place it all under the grill.
This one is a pretty quick cooker, depending on how you like your salmon.
From coming in through the door to serving up in under an hour; not bad going.
Shame it didn’t taste so good. I think i’ll ditch one of the big spices next time.
Following dinner I spent a considerable part of the evening sitting in the lounge and being with my own thoughts. As the evening drew in I lay there, feet up and sipping wine, thinking.
Where I am right now is where I need to be right now, but it’s not where I will stay.
