Easter may be a memory but spring has already paid us a visit reminding us that the summer is at the door!
This could only mean one thing… I have to get ready for my bathing suit. I hope it still fits me…
Somewhere between panick attacks and “Stoicism” I found an old magazine with low-fat recipes.
However today’s recipe is ideal not only for a diet but for our-I hate fish and everything that smells like it-kids.
It’s a fact that most children hate fish, its smell and its fish bone. That’s why a clever parent must wisely “camouflage” it.
Here you could use a salmon fillet which has only a bone in the middle and hide it into lots of sesame seeds.
If you avoid to buy the ready tin can of mashed peas and go for the real thing, you will have an easy and healthy recipe
and a very nutritious dish because it combines fish and peas. Enjoy…
SESAME SALMON with MASHED PEAS
6 salmon fillets (200 gr each)
1 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 tbsp of lemon juice
200 gr. of sesame seeds
FOR THE MASHED PEAS
600 gr of frozen peas
1 wine glass of fresh milk
2 tbsp of fresh basil leaves, chopped (optional but recommended)
Salt and pepper
Season with paprika and a pinch of salt.
Leave it in the refrigerator for about 1 hour .
Drain them and mash them very well with the mixer, until they become like paste.
In a pot, melt the butter. Throw in the mashed peas and stir well. Slowly, pour in the milk.
Not too much milk because we don’t want it to be like soup.
Grill the salmon fillets. When ready, take them out of the oven.
Sprinkle a layer of sesame into a dish. Place each fillet on both sides.
Place them into an oiled baking pan and continue to grill the fillets both sides
until the sesame takes a golden color.
When ready, serve in a dish along with the mashed peas.
It’s a very nutritious meal, ideal for your children.
And remember: when the fish doesn’t look like one, your kid loves it.
