I used to not like salmon. I am not sure why.
Maybe because I grew up eating ocean fresh fishes of South Korea and never got used to these type of fatty fish from the North Atlantic ocean. Anyhow, to make the long story short…, I enjoy my salmons now.
Salmons are quite versatile fish to come up with different ways to enjoy. Here is one dish that I feed my family often, Salmon with green beans and tomatoes.
Very simple with only a few ingredients that everyone might have, you can put this dish on your dinner table in a very short time.
The taste…? Delicious, of course! Even people who doesn’t like fishes raved.
And yes, it is HEALTHY!
Cut your beautiful cherry tomatoes in half.
Succulent salmon, vibrant colors of green beans and tomatoes…
What’s not there to love?
Well, well, well…
It’s time for me to say my summer goodbye.
I am taking my annual summer break from blogging again.
I am excited to re-bond with the nature of wild-wild-west of U.S spending time with my in-laws.
I will be back in August.
I can’t blog while I’m gone but I will be opened to messages, so feel free to drop a note.
Till we meet again, have a spectacular summer and stay cool!
