Tasmanian Salmon Fillets Recipe with Steamed Vegetables

Click for larger image of Salmon, vegetable meal.Here's a meal fit for a king. Delicious Tasmanian Salmon or Atlantic Salmon cooked in olive oil, served with a variety of steamed vegetables and topped with a small serve of garlic and herb sauce.

This recipe is something my wife threw together when I wanted a salmon meal. Most supermarket and fish stores sell salmon fillets so you don't have to have to use the Tasmanian variety.

Salmon is great from whatever source your part of the world uses. Use Atlantic Salmon, Chinook Salmon or Sockeye Salmon. It's all delicious and good for your health.

Some people shy away from salmon because of the price, but usually a nice fillet of salmon will cost no more than a steak. Don't let the price per kilo / pound put you off as fish weighs lighter, so a 150g fillet of salmon is quite a lot to eat. Just as much as that huge steak.

Salmon is a great steak substitute as it contains essential Omega 3 oils to combat high cholesterol and is low in calories. I love the taste of salmon, it's delicious what ever way it is cooked.

The Masterfoods sauce is to add flavor and kind of put a touch of pizzazz to the meal so you don't feel it's a diet. My wife likes these sauces as there is very little fuss to having them ready, just pop them into the microwave and it's ready in a minute. You can make your own sauce or leave it off altogether. I also like mint sauce sometimes on vegetables instead of the package sauce.

Ingredients

  • 150 gram or 5 ounce fillet of Salmon
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Olive oil
  • Masterfoods Finishing Sauce

Method

Add about a tablespoon of olive oil to a hot frying pan and cook salmon fillet until tender. Steam vegetables for around 5 minutes, steam to your preferred tenderness. Place Masterfoods finishing sauce into microwave and heat for 40 seconds

Place cooked salmon fillets on plate, add steamed vegetables, lightly pour sauce over vegetables and salmon and enjoy.

If you like a wine with your meal we suggest a light bodied chardonnay to cut the natural oiliness of the salmon. Don't forget to count the calories of the wine though and add it to your daily intake.

This meal contains around 420 calories

You can add more vegetables if you wish, perhaps snow peas would make a delicious addition and add a bit of flair and some slices of capsicum for flavor and color. Remember, steamed vegetables are low in calories so you can eat as many as you want without affecting your calorie intake greatly.
