Salmon, tomato, spinach ginger, garlic, no oil.
Hi everyone, first post.
I'd like to learn a dish that I can make about once a week, and that looks nice so I can serve it to guests. The thing is, I have specific nutrition goals for the meal, so I want to use the natural oils in the salmon to cook things, even if that's not how it's usually done.
The trouble is I'm not sure how to combine them to best cook everything evenly without burning it, and draw out the flavor and maintain presentation. Here's some info about how I do it now.
-Nonstick pan (might be a bit scratched, and have some residue)
1. Place salmon in cold pan, skin side down on medium heat, cover.
2. After Salmon starts to release oil, add crushed garlic cloves and chopped ginger.
3. As the pan becomes hot, add water to avoid burning. Salmon skin is usually sticking at this point.
4. Wait a little bit and flip the salmon, add tomato
5. Wait a Bit
6. Remove meal from pan, add spinach and water and steam for 30s
7. Place next to salmon and season with pepper and lime.
Does anyone have advice for how to combine the ingredients properly, and cook the salmon with its own oil and still get nice color, without buring the other vegetables? Other tips and ideas are welcome. Thanks very much.
