My mind is a jumbled curry of a million things and I am rambling on and on about nonsense! Even the Harry Belafonte is not able to channel my thoughts into something specific.
I have started 5 word documents ,written two lines and then discarded them all because they have nothing to do with the fish I made. I am jumping from one topic to another thinking about what I am going to make next , to our europe trip , to the chocolate in my fridge! So without rambling more I am going to dive into this salmon dish that I ate yesterday.
Salmon is not only costly but difficult to procure in india.Even if you find it , you will have to haggle,beg and browbeat the butcher into filleting it instead of giving you hunks of badly cut fish!
I wanted to keep the aromatics simple so that I could actually taste the fish instead of the spices.You can amp it up by using other spice mixes also.
- Salmon fillet
- Thyme-few sprigs
- Garlic-3 cloves
- Lemon-1 wedge
- Olive oil-2 tsp
- Pepper-1/2 tsp
- Salt to taste
Season and Rub the fish lightly with Salt and pepper on all the sides.
Heat oil in a flat pan.Add the thyme and smashed garlic cloves.
Add the Fish.Skin side up and cook on a medium flame for 3 minutes.
Baste the fish with the olive oil and aromatics every few minutes.Add the lemon wedge at this stage and place it skin side up.
Turn the fish to other side and cook for another 3 minutes.
