Best Marinated Salmon Recipe – Delicious Appetizer

About marinated salmon

 

It used to be a very occasional situation for me, to enjoy marinated salmon. I have tryied a marinated salmon on our summer holiday by the sea for the first time.

Last summer I discovered my best marinated salmon recipe. I had to try it immediately. It was a very hot summer day and I found  the idea of preparing marinated salmon for dinner great. The time showed it was a great idea, indeed. The marinated salmon is very tasty and it is a great option of serving a light dinner in the summer. Usually it is served as a small appetizer.

To make a marinated salmon is very simple and quick. But it takes a little patience to wait until a marinated salmon is served. For the best result it is good to leave a salmon to marinate over night. But if you’d like to enjoy your marinated salmon the same day it is prepared, let it rest in the fridge for at least two hours before serving.

The more fresh salmon fillets you have to marinate, the better. It is the best to cut skinless, boneless salmon fillets into the thin slices, as  you would  smoked salmon, but a little thicker.

Serve your marinated salmon with a little of marinade poured over and a small green leaf salad or a piece of crunchy fresh ciabatta bread.

I hope you will enjoy preparing your marinated salmon at home. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

How To Make a Chicken Curry – Aromatic and Spicy

About How to Make a Chicken Curry

I would like to share with you my favorite recipe how to make a chicken curry. In my recipe I combine a plenty of fresh vegetables with chicken. You can make this curry using vegetables only, if you like vegetarian meals. I prefer to make a curry with chicken.

I always use a fresh chicken breasts instead of frozen. The fresh chicken tends to be much more juicy and tender. In my  chicken curry recipe I use quite a lot spices to make my chicken curry. The mixture of all the spices in combination with a coconut milk, makes the chicken curry incredibly aromatic and tasty. Either using of fresh curry leaves or a ground indian curry powder is great to add a special touch to your chicken curry.

You can make your chicken curry in the strength of your choice. In this recipe I use the whole green chilli peppers. I don’t deseed them, so my chicken curry is quite spicy in the result. And the best chicken curry should be spicy! If you prefer a milder taste, just cut your green chilli peppers lenghtwise and deseed them.

I also add potatoes and sweet potatoes to the chicken curry. Sweet potatoes add a slightly sweet taste to the chicken curry and help to balance the acidity of the tomatoes, I use to cook in the chicken curry  also. Adding the potatoes to the chicken curry helps to thicken the sauce at the end of cooking. So don’t worry if you feel like your chicken curry sauce is not thick enough.

You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for a tin of peeled plum tomatoes, if you don’t have any at the moment. I cook a chicken slowly until tender, in the smooth sauce of tomatoes and coconut milk. I don’t like to overcook the vegetables and potatoes.. I add them gradually during the cooking, because each kind of vegetables deserves a different time of cooking.

The side dish is really not necessary to serve with your chicken curry. Just in case you would prefer having a light side dish, the fluffy basmati rice is great to serve with.

Hope you will get inspired by my recipe about how to make a chicken curry  and you will enjoy cooking your dinner. :)

How To Make Chicken Steak – Tender and Juicy

IMG_3112

I found cooking a chicken steak as one of the mostly frequently prepared dinners for my family. Well prepared, a simple chicken steak can become one of the most delicious dinners also.

I always make a chicken steak from the fresh chicken breasts instead of frozen. I  spread a good quality extra virgin olive oil all over the chicken, season it with a little sea salt and spices and I let it rest in the fridge for one hour at least. The chicken absorbs the olive oil and spices mixture and it helps to make the chicken juicy and improve the chicken steak’s taste.

To season the chicken I use a very mild combination of the ground spices which includes black pepper, red chilli pepper, garlic and  mustard seed. The spices in combination with olive oil add a great flavor to the chicken.

Cooking of the chicken staeks is very fast. Using of the cast iron grill pan is the best for the perfect result. I heat my cast iron grill pan on the stove until hot but not smoking. It takes about 5 minutes. I grease the grill pan with a little olive oil. I grill the chicken steaks over medium heat, 5 minutes each side. Once the cast iron grill pan heated, it keeps the same temperature, so I know that my steaks will be cooked perfectly.

A simple side dish is great to serve with your chicken steaks. I usually grill a vegetables on the same cast iron grill pan. Sometimes I grill a zucchini sliced into thin circles alone, or I make a mixture of the grilled vegetables, like a thinly sliced zucchini, red and yellow bell peppers, button mushrooms and white onions.I grease a grill pan with a little of olive oil and add vegetable gradually, as the cooking time of each of them is different. I start with paprika, then I add zuchini, mushrooms and onions finally. It is very fast to make this simple side dish and it tastes delicious in combination with chicken steak.

Serve your chicken steaks with vegetables immediately.

Hope you will find my chicken steak recipe  inspiring and you will enjoy cooking your dinner. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce – Italian Classique

About Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce

To make an easy tomato pasta sauce I use a very few ingredients. A simple combination of olive oil, garlic and off course, tomatoes makes the sauce great tasting and smelling every time.

The most of the year I use a canned tomatoes. I try to buy a great quality ones, whole and peeled, with lots of juices inside of the can. In the summer, tomatoes have a nice bright red colour and taste much differently. Much better, I’d say. In this case I prefer using a a couple of them to prepare my easy tomato pasta sauce. Usually 6 large ripe tomatoes are enough to make four portions of tomato pasta sauce.

To peel the tomato skin easily I immerse the fresh tomato in the hot water for 30 seconds first. I peel and slice the tomatoes into large cubes. The fresh tomatoes should be rich in juices, so adding water is not necessary while cooking the tomato sauce. The rest of the cooking process and time is the same as with a canned tomatoes.

When the sauce is ready I remove it from the heat immediately. Sometimes I add a handful of freshly chopped basil leaves into the sauce finally, to make it  more aromatic.

The most famous tomato in Italy’s cuisine is San Marzano. Grown in the Campanian provincies of Naples, Avellino and Salerno. This area, which features mountains, a volcano and water creates a great climate in which the tomato flourishes. The tomatoes grown in the nutrient rich soil, keep its fresh taste even if canned for months. This is why all the fresh tomato sauces  used for pasta and pizza toppings taste so special in Naples.

Serve your easy tomato sauce immediately on the top of your favorite pasta. I prefer serving long type of pasta, like spaghetti, spaghettini or linguine with my tomato sauce. Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese over the top.

I hope you will enjoy cooking your easy tomato pasta sauce. I look forward to receiving your comments below. :)

How to Make Chicken Burritos – Red Beans Included

IMG_3091

Making burritos is simple and the most of people enjoy burritos as a quick to prepare lunch or dinner. I usually make my burritos using a chicken breasts, cut into chunks. The most favorite combination to make a burrito filling in our family is a chicken with red beans.

I don’t make the chicken burritos too much spicy usually. Adding a cayenne red pepper makes the burritos spicy enough. Those who prefer to enjoy eating a very spicy burritos, can add the hot tomato salsa on the top of filling before wrapping up the burritos.

I like to prepare the chicken for burritos in advance. It makes chicken tasting even more delicious, once it has enough time to absorb all the spices. I combine the chicken with all the spices in the large bowl. Always use the larger bowl than the one you thought you’d need. :) I put the chicken into the fridge to let it rest for at least one hour. Also you can prepare your chicken a day before.

The rest of preparing your chicken burritos is very quick and easy. It is not necessary to overcook the chicken. I usually cook it for 5 – 7 minutes until cooked through, stirring constantly. The chicken will start to produce quite enough juices. I wait until the juices reduce slightly, before adding the red beans finally. I combine chicken with red beans, stirring for additional 1-2 minutes. Then I remove my burrito filling from the heat.

Heat your wheat tortillas slightly and arrange the chicken and red beans filling in the middle of each of them. Wrap the tortillas tightly to make burritos and serve immediately.

I hope you will enjoy making your homemade chicken burritos and you will get inspired by my simple recipe. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

Quick and Easy Chicken Breast Recipe – Lemon Makes It Refreshing

IMG_3080

There are so many variations of cooking a chicken breasts on the stove! Every time I need to cook a tasty dinner and I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, I follow this quick and easy chicken breast recipe.

What I like about cooking a chicken breasts, is that it never takes a long time to prepare them.  In this simple, but a  delicious dish, I combine a fresh chicken breasts with quite a large amount of white onions and green olives. Adding the ingredients one by one while cooking a chicken breasts slowly, allowes the chicken to absorp the different tastes gradually. A taste of fresh lemon adds a special refreshing touch to your dish finally.

What makes a chicken breasts tasting special following this recipe,  is using a little saffron, which adds a significant colour to the chicken also.

There is no need to make an additional side dish to serve your chicken breasts with olives and lemon. I’ve tried to serve a simple cooked brown rice. It was a great combination! Also the brown rice is a very healthy side dish, rich in minerals and vitamins.

For the best result, it is good to soak the brown rice in the cold water for half an hour before you start to cook. Soaking in the water helps the rice to soften better.

Follow the simple steps to cook the brown rice:

  1. Soak the brown rice in the cold water for an hour and half.
  2. In the pot heat 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Rinse the brown rice in water.
  4. Add 1 cup of brown rice to the pot.
  5. Cover the brown rice with 2 and 1/2 cups cold water.
  6. Season with a little sea salt.
  7. Wait until it starts to boil.
  8. Lower the heat.
  9. Cook 30 minutes over a very low heat.
  10. Serve and enjoy.

I hope you will enjoy cooking your quick and easy chicken breasts dinner. I’d be more than happy to receiving your comments below. :)

How To Make Bolognese Sauce – Delicious Spaghetti Dinner

IMG_3088

 

If you love the freshly cooked sauce full of great tasting meat, served on the top your favorite pasta, you will like the idea of making your homemade bolognese sauce to share with your family tonight.

Following the traditional recipe, the bolognese sauce should be cooked using a ground beef. I cook my own variation of the sauce. I use a ground veal meat to cook the bolognese sauce. As a result of using a veal meat, the sauce is tasting much smoother.

I always use a freshly ground veal, instead of the ready to use, packaged in the food store one.  I cook the ground veal with a pureed plum tomatoes. In the summer, juicy, ripe tomatoes can substitute for the tomato puree. Peel and cut roughly the fresh tomatoes before adding them to the ground meat.

Simmering slowly, adding the ingredients gradually,  one by one and seasoning slightly, is the secret of making your perfect, fresh and aromatic bolognese sauce.

Serve your bolognese sauce on the top of your favorite pasta. For me, the combination of bolognese sauce and freshly cooked spaghetti or spaghettini /the thinner ones/, sprinkled with a freshly grated parmesan cheese makes dinner perfect anytime.

I hope you’ll get inspired by my bolognese sauce recipe. I’d be more than happy if you  leave me your comments below. :)

Chicken Tomato Sauce Recipe – Served with Your Favorite Pasta

IMG_3074

I guess, there is nothing simpler than cooking a fresh pasta sauce to serve as your main dish at dinner. If you like pasta sauces which combine meat and tomatoes you can enjoy your chicken tomato sauce tonight. I use chicken breasts to make this pasta sauce. There are two options when it comes to adding tomatoes to your sauce. The most of the year I use canned plum tomatoes, which taste great. I puree them but I don’t like to make a very smooth tomato puree for this purpose. I puree the tomatoes with a couple of shots only. As a result of that, the consistensy of the tomato puree is coarse, containing the larger pieces of tomatoes.

In the summer when there are fresh, juicy and bright red tomatoes available, I use a couple of them to make this sauce tasting differently. I peel and chop them roughly before I add them to the chicken. To peel the tomato skin easily, immerse the fresh tomatoes in the hot water for 30 seconds first. I cook the sauce for a couple of minutes more, then I remove the sauce pan  from the heat, to keep the tomatoes as fresh as possible.

The main ingredients I use following  my chicken tomato sauce recipe is chicken, plum tomatoes and a heavy cream. Adding the heavy cream at the end of cooking, helps to make the sauce smoother and tasting delicious. To use one clove of crushed garlic is enough, as we want just to enhance the flavour of the sauce slihtly. Also, adding the ingredients gradually, one by one, helps to improve the final taste of your sauce.

Serve your chicken tomato sauce on the nest of your favorite either dried or fresh pasta. I found it the best to serve tagliatelle with this sauce. Sprinkle the pasta with a freshly grated parmesan cheese over the top before serving. Finally drizzle with olive oil if you prefer.

I hope you’ll enjoy cooking your chicken tomato pasta sauce. I’d be more than happy if you  leave me your comments below. :)

Simple Oven Baked Salmon – With Juicy Vegetables

Simple Oven Baked Salmon Fillets

If you would like to enjoy a light, well balanced dish at dinner, prepare yourself a simple oven baked salmon with juicy vegetables. The combination of baked salmon fillets and fresh vegetables makes the dish delicious.

Talking about vegetables to combine with a salmon, there are many more options definitely. I found the best a mix of a cherry tomatoes, spring onions and red chilli pepper to use in this recipe. The chilli pepper adds a slight spicy touch to your dish.

I don’t like overcooked vegetables as a result of baking process. Especially cherry tomatoes tend to be ready very soon. The salmon fillets need a little more time to be done perfectly. I start with baking a salmon first and I add vegetables later. I bake my vegetables for 10 minutes. But if you don’t like the skin from cherry tomatoes being peeled away too easily, bake them a little shorter, about 4-5 minutes.

Serve your oven baked salmon fillets immediately. There is no additional side dish needed to enjoy your dinner. But if you feel like having something small with your baked salmon fillets, try a simply cooked sweet potato. In this case, start making your dinner with cooking the sweet potato in the pot of boiling water. To cook a large sweet potato until soft takes about 45 minutes. Peel the cooked sweet potato, cut into the circles and share with the rest of your family. :)

I hope you will enjoy cooking your simple oven baked salmon. I’d be more than happy if you can leave me your comments below.

Green Thai Chicken Curry Recipe

IMG_3066

Popular in Thailand, this dish can be made at home easily. It is called green for its typical colour coming from green paste, which is what we basically start to make our green thai chicken curry with. If you make your homemade green paste, don’t be surprised by its heat intensity. It is very hot indeed. Much hotter than this one ready to use you can buy in the supermarket. If you don’t want your chicken curry to be spicy too much, be careful about the amount of green paste you start to make your green chicken curry with.

When I wanted to make my chicken curry milder, I was not starting to cook it with a green paste at all. But I have picked up a couple of basic green paste ingredients, a crushed clove of garlic, chopped shallot, grated knob of ginger and two whole green chilli peppers. I combined them in the pan with a groundnut oil over medium heat. I followed the rest of the original thai green chicken recipe as usual. My chicken curry cooked this way was spicy enough and tasting delicious.

What I like about cooking this exotic dish, is a combination of the tender chicken and refreshing vegetables, all in one pan. On the top of that, the coconut milk adds a special touch to the dish and makes it really creamy. Simply delicious!

Simmering slowly in the coconut milk, makes chicken really tender. I add vegetables later, after cooking the chicken for a while, trying to not overcook them.

 

To make a homemade green curry paste you will need:

 

3 large green chillies, deseeded, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, sliced
3 shallots, chopped
2 tsp ground coriander
knob of ginger, about 2 cm, peeled, chopped
2 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
1 tsp sea salt
lemongrass stalks, chopped/optional/
2 tbsp groundnut oil

 

Combine all the green curry paste ingredients  in  the jar of an electric blender. Blend together until smooth.

It is the best to serve your green chicken curry with steamed basmati rice.

Hope you will enjoy cooking your green chicken curry  and you will succeed in achieving the desired strength. :)

Looking forward to receiving your comments below. Enjoy your green chicken curry dinner!
