These days it seems everybody is grumbling about the rising cost of every single thing including food. But we cannot just go without food and the best option is to eat at home. But sometimes our fussy eaters are unwilling to eat at home if the food is just the same old thing day in and out. So mums like us have to be creative in our dishes and cook up something new. Here is a recent bento meals for my fussy boys. (Even though they are quite grown up the bento is just to attract them to the food).......Try it out if you have no idea what to cook anymore. Besides, it is quite healthy, delicious and easy to cook too. Here is the recipe to share.........
300 g Salmon fillets
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1 clove garlic - crushed
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
Mix together the marinade ingredients. Pour the marinade over the salmon fillets and turn over to be well coated with the sauce. Leave aside in fridge to marinade for at least 1 hour.
Marinade sauce mixture..........
Preheat a grill to high or you can pan fried it like I do to save cost of electricity bills. Brush the top of fish with marinade and grill for about 6 minutes turning over half way til the fish is just cook. Place any remaining marinade in pan and heat up for 1 to 2 mins, then pour over the cooked salmon. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds before serving.
My ratatouille recipe will be up in my next posting.
Note: All oily fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines and trout are good for health. They contained omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids to help our body in the prevention of heart diseases, reduce the risk of stroke and helps to improve inflammatory conditions like arthritis. (I do try to take at least one portion of oily fish due to my arthritis condition)
