The Tuesday Quick-Fix

Hi folks and welcome back!

This was the first recipe of this blog. Hope you enjoy it!

We’ve all been there, Tuesday evening a few friends come by to watch a movie and you haven’t got much food in the fridge. What do you do? Maybe call Domino’s or that nice Chinese place around the corner.

Or you could whip something up that takes about 15 minutes to make and costs about £8.

That’s what happened to me last week when I had some friends over and I was completely unprepared for guests. We decided to go to our local supermarket and get something. Once we were there, someone suggested something light and quick. So fish it is then. Cooking fish is probably the easiest and you can always find some fresh fish at your local market or supermarket. We decided to go with salmon fillets and some potatoes, which then became potato salad.

What you need: 

Salmon fillets
600g new potatoes
3 spring onions
3 boiled eggs
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar/red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons of virgin olive oil
100g mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon mustard (optional and Dijon works well)

That’s pretty much all you need to make this meal.

First, we need to cook the potatoes. The new potatoes are usually quite small so you only have to cut them in half and the really small ones you can leave them in one piece.

Wash them really well under cold water then let them cook for 15 minutes, until they are tender. Then cut the spring onions in thin slices.

In the meantime boil 3 eggs for about 5-6 minutes. Then remove the shell and cut them in small chunks.

While we’re waiting for the potatoes to boil we take the salmon fillets and fry them for about 5 minutes on each side on a medium flame. Make sure to use a bit of olive oil.

Here are the salmon fillets. About 5 minutes on each side should be enough.

By now the salmon is ready and the potatoes should be done as well.

Potatoes go in a large bowl, then add spring onions, egg chunks, mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and oil. Mix really well and done!

Voilà! The salad is ready!
Next you serve it and enjoy a fairly light but very delicious dinner. All this can be done in 15-20 minutes

Salmon and Potatoes Salad. Great meal when you are in hurry! You can make this in about 15-20 minutes.
