Poached Salmon With Broccoli

Though it was not time for us to do our bi-monthly grocery shopping yet, we decided to go yesterday since we might not have enough stashed in the fridge to last the whole week. Going to the grocery is something that we both like to do because we find it relaxing and fun going up and down the aisles - until we run into throngs of people and until we have top pay. Still, doing the groceries is one of the things that we like doing together.

So there we were, deciding what we would need for the next two weeks. Normally, I have a list but I was too lazy to make one yesterday. We ended up buying a couple of treats - some salmon and blue marlin steaks. Surprisingly, the price of fish was down! (Anyone know why?)

I suppose the salmon was a perfect ending to our weekend of good food. I don't really know many ways of preparing salmon so I stuck to my tried and tested recipe - salmon poached in butter. I just seasoned the steaks with some salt and pepper and I added some garlic to my piece (Jerry doesn't like garlic all that much) - that was it. You can't really go wrong with that combination.

For the side, I steamed some broccoli and slathered it with butter. Yum!

Anyone care to share their own salmon recipe?

  3. Han, you're probably right and yeah Jer, let's hope the prices are still down when we go back to the store in a couple of weeks!

  4. Drizzle some honey over a nice piece of salmon and put it in the oven or under the grill. I usually use a piece of salmon filet as opposed to the steak and leave the skin on. The skin crisps up and is delicious. However, make sure you spray the tray before you put the fish on it so that it won't stick.
