I’m back. With more blatant captions on images that are self explanatory, and a brand new recipe. Only now since last time, I’m married to Alison
Alison has given me guest access to this blog (mwohahaha!) because we want this to be a collection of our 2 or 3 meals that we cook every week (we can’t find an app that would simply do that, weird). So admittedly selfish reasons. But we want to very selflessly make this public, and hopefully inspire others to make things that are delicious, healthy, and of minimal effort. You can call that our mantra.
Speaking of minimal effort, that’s the thing that’s been deterring us from posting our recipes for so long. Because the convention is to write up a story to go with your recipe, and that becomes time consuming, and when living a busy life you just don’t end up doing it at all. I’m going to deliver recipes in a minimal way, without the stories, and let the food speak for itself. Let’s get to the point:
- 1 x tablespoon of Garlic
- 2 x tablespoons of Olive Oil
- 2 x cups of Brussels Sprouts
- 2 x Brown Onions, halved then sliced
- 1 x Zucchini, halved then sliced
- 1 x 800ml can of Tomatoes
- 2 x pieces of Salmon
- 1 x tablespoon of Cajun spice
- 1 x 400 grams packet of Ravioli
Do the prep above. Slice the veg. Preheat oven to 390 C for the Salmon. Preheat saucepan to medium heat for the veg.
Make a quick marinade for the Salmon. Combine 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil, the Cajun spice, and about a quarter of the juice from the can of whole Tomatoes. Stir then pour over Salmon in a baking dish. Place Salmon in oven for 20-25 mins.
Add Garlic to the pan with 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil. Cook for 2 mins. Then combine Zucchini and Onions in the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the Brussels Sprouts, and cook veg for another 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When the veg is softened and starting to brown, add the Tomatoes. Stir, then place on simmer.
Boil a pot of water for the pasta. Once it’s bubbling, add all of the Ravioli. Cook with no lid for 4-6 minutes, taste to test.
When the Salmon is ready, slice gently into generously small pieces.
Finally plate up. Place the Ravioli, then the veg mix, then the Salmon on top. Optionally garnish with some Basil and/or Parsley.
Great! This was one of the first meals in months that I’ve been truly happy with how it turned out.
