When I cook meals and design recipes, I tend to favour simple combinations of few ingredients. Today’s Gourmet Garden Blogger-Come-Chef competition recipe has only three ingredients, five, if you count the accompanying greens.
Gourmet Garden Thai Chilli Paste, natural almonds (30g packet) and fresh skinless salmon….
Grind the almonds until coarse and add a generous dob of Gourmet Garden Thai Chilli paste and mix thoroughly until mixture is just wet.
Press the mixture on the salmon fillet and bake, covered for twenty minutes at 170 degrees. Then remove cover and bake a further two minutes. You will have enough mixture for two fillets using a 30g packet of almonds.
Serve with a big heaping pile of steamed greens and you have a simple, yet extremely tasty meal full of good fats and very filling to boot.
I’m seriously in love with this meal – I can’t wait to bake it again as salmon is one of my “desert island foods”.
Have you got a desert island food – if I had an oven and some thai paste on my island, I’d be set!
