After all the Valentine’s Day sweets I needed to eat something healthy and simple… and what’s healthier than fish? This is a very quick and easy fish dish. I have always liked boiled fish with mayo… must be because when I was a child I had a nursery rhymes book about food and one of my favourite rhymes was about a fisherman who would eat his freshly caught fish with mayo! Anyhow, this is a slight variation of the original recipe as I am using mayo mixed with ketchup, and it is just as delicious.
Ingredients for 4 persons:
2 small salmon tails, cleaned and halved
1 bay leaf
5 pepper corns
1 slice of lemon
For the easy pink sauce:
1/3 of Tomato Ketchup
2/3 of Mayonnaise
Sliced steamed potatoes and carrots to serve
Wash the salmon tails and keep them aside.
Put the bay leaf, pepper corns, slice of lemon and salt in a pot.
Now fill the pot with water and add the salmon tails.
Put the pot on a medium fire and cook uncovered till the water starts boiling, then lower the flame and keep simmering until the fish has cooked through. Drain it and keep it to cool down.
In the meantime, steam and slice the vegetables and prepare the pink sauce by mixing the tomato ketchup with the mayonnaise.
Serve the salmon at room temperature with the steamed vegetables and the pink sauce on the side.
