Today was the turn of grilled salmon with tomato and potato mash. I do like salmon but I only started to eat it in a very regular basis when I moved to England. This type of fish is very common and popular in the British Island. Maybe because it’s easy to cook and very versatile? Don’t know, but they do love it 🙂
Salmon is very healthy fish full of proteins, vitamins and omega-3. You can find it fresh, canned and smoked. So it’s a very versatile ingredient that can be used in a lot of different recipes.
Back home, my mum used to grill it or cook it in the oven often rapped in foil. And it was always fresh salmon. Canned salmon is not very popular and we would only use smoked salmon for canapes or other sort of starters.
I like salmon no matter how is cooked and even raw like the Japanese like it 🙂 During summer I prefer to grill it, either in a pan or outside in the BBQ and during winter I prefer to cook it in the oven. At least this is the kind of fish that my boyfriend likes 🙂 easy to eat without bones…
