~ Fish on Friday ~
Chilli and Garlic Blackened Salmon Fillets
Here we are again, it’s Friday already…….it doesn’t seem like a week ago that I was posting about some wonderful smoked haddock I used for last Friday’s supper, Omelette Arnold Bennett. This week I am showcasing some great salmon fillets……all boned and ready to cook, and as usual this lovely fish was sent to me from John and Delish Fish. Delish Fish provides a handy mail-order door to door service, and I love the convenience of receiving fish delivered to me – all ready to cook or freeze. I love salmon, but it is hard to decide how to cook it a little differently sometimes; and I just fancied a change of pace this Friday, something with a bit of a kick, so I devised this recipe, a cheat’s version of the Cajun recipe, Blackened Fish……with none of the intricate spices, but a simple blend of black pepper, garlic and chilli sauce with lemon juice, easy to cook after a long day at work and a really lovely spiced fish dish.
The salmon fillets were quite big, so we ended up sharing one fillet between us, which left the other one for another meal; I plan to flake the cooked salmon, mix it with mayonnaise and make some salmon sandwiches with home-made oat bread……with watercress on the side. But back to this recipe; I served these salmon fillets with some noodles for a fusion meal – Scottish salmon, Cajun blackened fish and Asian noodles!
I have also received some more fish as part of my Fish Fanatic role this week, and I will be featuring that over the weekend, so this is a short post today; I have shared this recipe with you below, as well as some fishy nutritional facts…..as salmon is high in Omega 3 Fatty acids, which are essential to a healthy diet…….so, salmon is not just a good looking fish, but it’s good for you too…….I LOVE it when a plan comes together!
See you later, and have a GREAT Fishy Friday, I’ll be back with more recipes and news over the weekend…….and don’t forget, you can win £30 of fresh fish from Delish Fish by entering my Giveaway here: Win £30 of Fresh Fish Delivered to your Door. Karen.
Salmon is a high-protein meal that is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for children and adults alike. Evidence strongly suggests that increasing Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet helps prevent heart disease and, at increased consumption levels, may dramatically cut the mortality rate in heart attach survivors.
In addition, ocean-farmed salmon tastes great and can be cooked in a variety of ways for the entire family to enjoy. Salmon is the healthy, tasty choice.
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats that are essential for life. Omega-3s help protect against heart disease, promote healthy skin and joints and are essential to proper neurological development in unborn babies and young children.
