Salmon, Broccoli and Leek Quiche

I don’t usually make quiches, I’m not sure why because they’re delicious! I think I’ve always thought they were a faff but if you pre-buy the pastry case they’re really a doddle.

I made this bad boy for Mother’s Day lunch with some salad and roasted tomatoes. It went down a treat and I’ll definitely be making a few more quiches in the future – so moreish and the leftovers make great lunches.

You could buy preflaked salmon I suppose to make this even easier but it’s often honey roasted or seasoned which might overwhelm in a quiche. I bought two fillets and just grilled them with a little butter, lemon and salt and pepper.

Find the pre-made pastry cases in the baking aisle of your supermarket – they really help to make this a lot easier! Especially if you have no patience for baking like me. Anyway, onto the recipe!

Easy Creamy Salmon and Asparagus Alfredo Linguine

I’ll be honest. I’ve only liked salmon for about a year, and I’ve only really been cooking it as steaks or sprinkling into salads. I’ve not been too inventive on the salmon front.

This was my first “experimental” dish and it was bloody gorgeous. I made this on a super hot Sunday during the one week of British Summer we seemed to get, and it was even better eaten outside. That said, it’s also the kind of dish you could enjoy on a cold winters eve. It’s adaptable. Versatile. Chameleon-like. OK, I’ll shut up, it’s just pasta. But it’s really, really good pasta.

Honey Salmon, Asparagus and Avocado Salad

Summer has been teasing us a bit hasn’t it? Hot one day, cold and rainy the next. Standard British weather.

Even though it was chilly the other evening I decided to take a bit of a ‘bugger it’ approach and start enjoying summer foods anyway. Note I did sit outside and eat half of this, then got too cold and came back in.

Anyway a whole post on the weather would be boring, so let’s talk food. This simple salad is really quick to make, especially if you buy the salmon pre cooked. If you can’t get it, all you need to do is grill your own salmon in a little honey and soy sauce marinade to replicate the flavour.

Sweet Chilli Salmon with Spicy Vegetable Noodles

Y’know when you come in from work and you want something delicious and easy but you don’t want pasta? This dish solves all those problems and more.

This recipe uses two pre marinated salmon fillets in sweet chilli from Lidl, but you could likely find these in any supermarket (or even marinade yourself). Buying them pre marinated makes this a really quick easy tea.

Also I swear I’m not affiliated with Lidl, most of my posts use their products but it’s only because they’re my local supermarket.
