Seared Salmon

18- Seared SalmonPin


I keep getting asked, how do I manage. I mean it is not one time, but many times. Bloggers and non-bloggers alike have asked me how do I work, cook, click and blog at the same time.  I normally don’t post a lot of “serious” recipes. If you are looking for simple, easy to cook, no hassle recipes or if you are looking to entertain yourself, you can find ideas here. I don’t advocate complicated cooking, because I don’t have the time for it. When I want to cook something special, I “make” time for it. That is the way I am. Just like the DDL Cheesecake – I made time for it. Last week, I baked a three layer Neopolitan cake for my friends. It didn’t turn out as good as I hoped but the expressions were priceless. For these expressions, for the feeling, for whatever comes with cooking and baking, I “make” my time. For the smell that comes out of the oven, I “make” my time. For the satisfaction my kids may get, I “make” my time. Sometimes just for pampering myself, I “make” my time. That’s all I do… and I click almost all new meals I make. If I don’t like the click, I delete them but store the recipe in my drafts to make them again. I am not a die hard photographer, and my pictures are not high end. I don’t understand my camera, so I click on auto settings. I have my shortcomings, but I love what I do. It gives me immense satisfaction, even if the recipe is nothing extraordinary, just because for some, the small idea is brilliant enough. So I have no clue how I manage – all I say to those who ask me is, “Alhamdulillah”! 🙂


This recipe was one that I had got during the cooking class I attended last year. Oh.. more than a year now! Where did the year fly off to?? 🙁 Salmon is a super food and everybody is so much behind of it. I keep purchasing salmon off and on and I love the taste of it. In this recipe, there is nothing else except salt and pepper used to season the salmon. The fish is seared on high flame with ghee and then the final cooking is done by baking. It helps lock in the flavors and makes the salmon really juicy. Off to this easy recipe…
