Quick Roast Salmon-Makes a Great Salad
We were off to see Bic Runga last night. She was performing at the Cathedral in Parnell.
By the way, it was a very enjoyable concert.
I wanted to make a quick dinner using the salmon.
So so simple and very very tasty
The amount below, fed two of us
Piece of roasted Salmon click here
1/2 red onion finely sliced
About 9 cms of Cucumber. seeds removed
3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2 cm cubes
1 stick of celery, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Lettuce. I used Iceberg, I still like it's crunchiness.
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
Sea salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp sugar...just to cut the acidity a little
Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water till just tender
drain and toss with a little of the dressing
Add celery and chives
Meanwhile marinate the onions and cucumber
Best to marinate for at least 2 hours
this takes the sharpness from the onions
So when you are ready.
Rip the lettuce into bite size pieces
Place the potatoes and celery over the lettuce
Throw onions and cucumber on top
Finally, break up the salmon and place that around as well
Drizzle the rest of the dressing over the salad
Perfect for a quick meal
