So let’s get cooking!
Smoky beans on toast
tablespoon olive oil and a little extra for drizzling
red pepper, thinly cut into strips
¼ tablespoon sugar
227g can chopped tomatoes
1 slice of seeded bread
1 garlic clove, halved
A few parsley springs, finely cut
Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion and pepper. Fry for about 10-15 minutes until soft, then crush half the garlic and add to the pan, together with the tomatoes, paprika, vinegar, sugar, seasoning and beans. Simmer and cook for another 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Toast the bread, rub with the other piece of garlic and drizzle with some oil, but only a little. Scoop the beans and put them over the toast, drizzle with a little more olive oil then scatter over the parsley.
Pan-seared fish tacos
1 avocado, diced
2 limes, quartered
1 peach, diced
Freshly ground black pepper
cup finely cut red cabbage
8 corn tortillas
1 pound of fresh grouper
¼ cup of diced red onion
2 tablespoons canola oil
Dry the fish with paper towels then season both sides with some salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a large pan. When the oil starts to ripple, add the fish, flesh side down. Cook each side for 3-5 minutes. You’ll see the fish begin to whiten around the bottom and the outsides as it cooks. Now remove the fish and cut it into 8 equal portions.
Assemble the tacos: each tortilla should be topped with fish, avocado, peach, cilantro, onion, cabbage and a generous portion of squeezed lime juice.
Easy sesame salmon
1 large clove garlic, minced.
2-3 tablespoons of white sesame seeds
Pinch dried chili flakes
2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
1 teaspoon minced ginger root
2 tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce
2-3 skinless wild salmon fillets
Take the garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger and chili flakes and put them in a zip-top bag. Allow them to marinate for an hour.
Preheat the oven to exactly 375 degrees.
Put some sesame seeds on a plate, then lay the salmon fillets on them, face down, so as to coat the top.
Put the crusted salmon on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Now bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
