|Baked salmon with white kidney bean mash and salad (Confession: I didn't mash the beans very well, obviously!)|
We do not want to eat out all the time during weekends, it's tiring for the baby to be out whole day, no matter how much he enjoys the outing.
But cooking is still a challenge with a baby around, whether it's a weekday or weekends. With kind of limited groceries on Sunday (before topping up for the week), I cooked this for the two of us. Lunch was served in 30 minutes.
Marinate the salmon with salt and pepper for at least 30 minutes. The longer the better.
Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius. Oil the pan with butter, place the salmon skin down and bake for 12-20minutes, depending on how hot is the oven.
You can choose to squeeze some lemon juice on the salmon when it's done.
The simplest salad dressing is extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and some lemon juice. It won't go wrong.
White kidney bean mash
I saw this on Nigella's program and I wanted to give it a try. The recipe is here.
I used three cloves of garlic for stronger taste. I used butter instead of oil. And I used a little bit of lemon juice instead of lemon zest.
All the three of them are very simple dishes that you can make them all at once. Whip up a meal in 30minutes is not impossible after all :)
