It has been a pretty miserable afternoon in Canberra. While the official temperature was just above 10 °C, the so-called apparent temperature was around 4 °C for most of the day. I tried to go out for a walk twice and each time the rain stopped me. With the miserable weather I had baked salmon on my mind.
While I normally pan fry my salmon for 5 minutes with the lid on, I’ve also found another fool-proof method to cook salmon just right. I use my small bench top oven toaster, set it for 200 °C and cook the salmon fillet for 15 minutes. The salmon flakes nicely and depending on the thickness of the fillet it remains slightly pink in the middle. I like to rub my salmon a little to add some flavour. Tonight I combined some grapeseed oil, soy sauce and brown sugar in a plastic bag and rubbed my salmon in the bag.
The rice and quinoa were cooked in the microwave oven and I fried the egg slowly on a gentle heat and kept it warm before I topped the dish.
