i love food – be it eating it or cooking it.  i especially love cooking for my family and friends. and i want to share this love with you by posting recipes/techniques i’ve “discovered” throughout my life.

a.simple.way.to.cook.salmon(or any fish fillet).

 ingredients: 1 kilo salmon (filleted, skin on), olive oil, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, paprika, rosemary, thyme, lemon juice/lemon slices

directions: the fish can either be grilled or cooked in a pan.  cut the fish into serving size. (i usually get my fish in whole slabs – the whole “side” of the fish without the head, tail, guts and bone – so i just cut about two-inch slices. but you can cut the fish to suit your taste.) place the fish (skin side down) on a piece of aluminum foil (large enough for you to tightly seal/enclose/wrap around the fish). drizzle generously with olive oil, salt, pepper, parsley, paprika, rosemary, thyme and lemon juice.   If you have lemon slices, then just place them on top of the fish instead of drizzling the juice all over.  Seal the top and edges of the foil.  Heat your grill or pan.  Coat grill or pan with oil. Place the foil (with the fish. lol!!!) on grill/pan and cook for about 10-15 minutes (depends on how large the fish is).  Serve.

i love this dish. it’s simple and easy to make. prep time only takes a couple of minutes and you can serve dinner on time. pwedeng pwede sa 30-minute meals ni rachel ray. lol!! 🙂  you can serve this dish with a simple pasta dish like…

lemon.spaghetti.

 ingredients: 1 lb. spaghetti, 2/3 cup olive oil, 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice, salt, pepper, lemon zest, 1/3 cup chopped basil leaves

directions: cook pasta in salted water until tender but still firm (i prefer Spaghetti No. 2 which cooks for about 8 minutes). meanwhile, whisk the oil, cheese and lemon juice in a large bowl to blend. drain the pasta and set aside 1 cup of the cooking liquid.  toss the pasta in the lemon sauce, adding 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid at a time as needed to moisten.  season with salt and pepper.  garnish with lemon zest and basil.

’til the next recipe!!!   🙂
