As I mentioned in a past post, you do not need to prepare something very elaborate to have a nice dinner. Tonight was once again the proof of this. We prepared a seared salmon with a garlic and lemon sauce, a tomato salad with burrata (leftover from Eataly) and some strawberries with lemon and a hint of sugar.
Salmon is a very nutritional fish: it contains omega 3's, vitamin D, vitamin B or magnesium! Like any fish, you have to make sure you do not overcook it! I seared it in olive oil for 10 minutes, flipping it from time to time to make sure it cooks evenly. I dip it in flour before cooking so it does not stick in the pan.
The garlic and lemon sauce is pretty easy: just mix garlic, lemon juice and vegetable oil. Adjust the quantities to your liking! Et Voila!
Last is dessert: cut the strawberries in small pieces. Add lemon juice and sugar. Let it sit for few minutes so the juice gets an amazing strawberry flavor!
Isn't that simple? I love it: it was fresh and light!
