So now that I've properly plugged my fantasy husband, I'd like to share that I was browsing his site and came upon a pretty easy salmon dish. Technically it's called "crispy barbecued side of salmon with cucumber yoghurt." Pretty long title, huh? Don't worry, the steps were easy peasy.
Here are the ingredients I used:
- salmon with skin on
- crushed garlic (which the recipe didn't call for, but I LOVE garlic so in it went)
- chopped basil
- chopped mint
- plain yogurt
- lemon zest and juice
- salt & pepper
- red pepper flakes (cuz I couldn't find a red pepper, sadness)
- olive oil
Slather on that garlic yo!
Cucumber with yogurt:
Side note: Do not over yogurt this sucker. I mean, you can barely make out the cucumbers, right?
Confession: I put extra mint leaves for the photo cuz it was blinding white and was not attractivo.
Oh, I made some couscous to throw on the side. I just LOVE couscous! Literally one of the easiest things to cook. EVER! EVER!
And my beautiful plating, yet again:
I bet if I let salmon with the basil, garlic and lemon sit longer, it would be much tastier. The skin was pretty crispy and delicious by itself, so overall, a pretty delectable dinner. Next time, less yogurt and more couscous.
Anyone have a favorite way they prepare their salmon? I think it would be nice for me to branch out from continuously seasoning meats with garlic. What say you?
