Salmon Sunday


This morning at 6 o’clock my husband took off to the States for a week and Jade went back to school at 5 this afternoon.  Me and the kitties, home alone.  Still, I made a nice lunch for Jade of lemon salmon and sesame stir fried greens.


Lemon Salmon and Stir Fried Greens

4 salmon fillets, skin on

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup honey

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp butter

1/2 Napa cabbage, sliced

2 cups baby spinach

Black sesame seeds

Marinate the salmon in the butter, honey and lemon for  2-4 hours.

Melt the butter in the sesame oil and stir fry the cabbage and spinach, then sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

Sear the salmon and serve with the vegetables.

Wine suggestion:  Cremant de Bourgogne
