Tasmanian Salmon Fillets Recipe with Steamed Vegetables
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
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.
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.
- 150 gram or 5 ounce fillet of Salmon
- Olive oil
- Masterfoods Finishing Sauce
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.

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
