Crispy salmon and steamed veges

I really love eating salmon on a Monday night - gives me something to really look forward to after a grinding Monday at the office.

Normally I steam it but this week the Salmon at Ranch Market with the skin looked fabulous and I really enjoy a crispy, salty salmon skin, so i lightly pan-fried this one in sesame oil, skin side down for 7 minutes then turn over for about a minute.

Steamed salmon with a squeeze of lemon and cranberries

I've never really counted calories but I maintain an awareness of high and low calories akin to how someone differenciates good and evil.

Steaming and boiling as opposed to frying is the technique which has probably attributed to 4 or 5kg of weightloss for me over the last 12 months.

And that's not to say I never eat fried food.  I often do, but I'm now more aware of the consequences of cooking techniques and ingredients and make sure I get a healthy balance.

And healthy doesn't mean to say tasteless.  The dish above with salmon and cranberries complimented by a variety of veges is perfect for me and a bit of a Monday night staple.

Only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and cook so it really is ideal for after gym at night.

Keeping it Clean

I call this "Keeping it Clean" with some fantastic steamed ingredients and boiled carrots.

Boiled the baby carrots and at the same time steam gorgeous portabello mushrooms and taufu sprinkled with chili flakes for 10 minutes.

Then switch the mushrooms for a beautiful fillet of salmon covered with a squeeze of lemon.   Steam that for 7 minutes and then switch it out for baby spinach.  The baby spinach just needs a minute or so to steam.

Garnish the salmon with cranberries, cracked pepper over the dish and...
