PAN FRIED SALMON WITH BROCCOLI-PRAWN RICE


PAN-FRIED SALMON WITH BROCCOLI-PRAWN RICE


I love preparing very colorful dishes and vegetables do the tricks. Not only are they healthy, but also makes the dish very attractive and tasty as well.

This dish is a delightful combination of pan-fried marinated salmon with juicy prawn, tomatoes, broccoli and rice.



INGREDIENTS


Salt
Prawns
Broccoli
Tomatoes
½ lemon
Spring onions 

½ Red onions
½ white onions 
Garlic granules
Black peppercorns
2 teaspoon of olive oil
4 pieces of salmon fillets
I teaspoon of Knorr aromat
1 tablespoon Curry powder
1 tablespoon of sunflower oil/veg oil
1½ cups of long grain rice
2 knorr cubes
 



   

PREPARATIONS

Lay the salmon fillets on a tray, sprinkle salt on them. Pat the salmons with your fingers. Then sprinkle the knorr aromat all over the fish, pat them in as well. Sprinkle the peppercorns and finally squeeze and sprinkle the lemon on them. Transfer the salmons onto a bowl and cover with cling film, put into the fridge and allow marinating for 4 – 5hrs.

In a medium pot, pour in about 1700ml of water and bring to boiling. Wash the rice with warm water and add into the boiling water. Add a cube of knorr and pinch of salt; allow boiling till the rice is done. Drain the water and run cold water on it, so the heat doesn’t cook it any further. Set aside

Please remember to turn the rice at some point so it cooks properly and water must be above the rice level, just like when one boils spaghetti.

Trim the broccolis. Core the tomatoes and cut into chunks. Slice the spring onions and onions. Set aside.

In a frying pan, put in the prawns, add pinch of salt. Cook for about 1 mins. Take out the prawn and pour the water from the prawns into a small soup plate. Turn on the oven to 150 degrees.

Heat up the pan, pour in 1 tsp. olive oil, and allow heating for few seconds. Add the onions, stir-fry for some seconds. Then add the prawns, add ½ knorr cube and fry for about a minute.

Add the tomatoes and spring, fry for 3 minutes. Turn of the gaslight and then add the broccoli. Put into the oven and allow cooking for 5 minutes.

In a wok, pour in the sunflower oil, allow for some seconds to heat up. Add the onions, ½ knorr cube and then the rice and curry.  Fry for about 3 – 4 minutes until the curry mixes well. Taste and add pinch of salt if not satisfied.

Add the vegetables onto the rice, 2 tablespoons of the water from the prawns. Cover with the lid and allow cooking on a medium gas heat for 2-3 minutes.
