Sunday solo salmon in Mumbai

Just after I booked my flight and stay for Jakarta, my attention turned to what needs to get done around the house before I take off for 3 weeks…

Did a little fridge digging and freezer check, discovering a frozen Atlantic salmon fillet just begging to be consumed with some assorted veggies….

My partner was on tour so it was just me, but one of the things about work travel is you learn to revel in the occasional ‘proper’ solo dinner…

So why not get into practice at home?

There you have it… found myself cooking up a storm to produce a scrumptious yet reasonably healthy Sunday dinner just for me, myself and I!

  • Poached salmon with a crazy yum citrus dill reduction sauce
  • Steamed cauliflower with a dash of tumeric
  • Toasted roasted beans with sesame, sunflower, yellow mustard and cumin seeds
  • Carrots with cumin and dill
  • Potatoes sautéed with onions a special home-made olive oil my partner picked up in Beirut, cracked black pepper and seasalt

What a pleasure… a good proper home cooked meal, at our own table, with a little music in the background. Yup… think I have my ‘home fix’ and easing beautifully into solo meals!

    Think I have some seabass in my freezer, plus sweet potatoes and cavallo nero. Or maybe just some stir fried veggies and courgette noodles with the goodies from the Tom Yum pack from Gourmet Market in Bangkok last weekend – holy basil, galangal, lime, lemongrass, garlic, bird’s-eye chillies. Leftovers from.the Tom Yum collection will be used to make soup as it turns autumnal in London. Or a simple Sunday brunch-supper, toasted sliced sweet potato topped with a poached egg and a large grilled field mushroom with some baby plum tomatoes cooked in its “umbrella”?
    I am counting off the days until the Goa/Bombay holiday at Christmas.

    • Someone has clearly become rather inspired!! Here I am sitting in Jakarta having just entered the service apartment with a completely empty kitchen seriously envying all of your options!!!! So enjoy all your dinning delights that clearly can keep you company until Goa/Bombay welcome you back!

    Sounds exquisite. I’m definitely writing this down – you know I have spices in my cabinet that I wonder what I could use them for… you’ve just given me great ideas!

    You’ve tantalized my tastebuds!

  6. Poor little Zoe… didn’t even get a look-in 😦

    • Hehe! Believe it or not, Zoe has zero interest in people food… go figure!

      • Wh…at?! Weird kitteh….

        • Seriously! Not even fish or meat. Except tuna juice from a can. Not the tuna flakes though… only the juice… if given in her ‘treat’ dish beside her regular food dish…. not on the counter or table or anywhere else?!

          I’d like to take credit for being super careful about instilling these habits from the day we got her… only giving food in her dishes never from our plates or anywhere else, however it still just goes against typical feline nature….

    The food looks delicious but I’m obsessed with your plates! Is that pewter? Love!
