Simple Salmon Supper, Emergency Sauce & the gist of it all.

Ras el hanout. It sounds exotic and it is. If you’d like to read more about this warming spice blend use the ‘Search by ingredients’ area of this site (in side-bar to right of this post if you are on a pc).

You’ll also find it in Tesco or a spice store and possibly other supermarkets where I haven’t found it yet. You can also make it too, again if you’re interested search in the ingredients box of this blog ->

….but you’re probably just here for the recipe.

Simple Salmon Supper:

Ingredients :
Salmon Darnes
Drizzle oil
Good scattering of Ras el Hanout
Method:
Into hot oven for approx. 15 minutes

Emergency Sauce:

Ingredients:
Mayonnaise
Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Tomato & Chill Relish
Honey
Ras el Hanout
Method:
Use your own excellent judgement to combine the above until you make enough sauce to dollop on your salmon. Check your fridge, other things that you can swap in to make great emergency sauce = yoghurt, creme fraiche, vinegars, lemon juice, sweet chilli sauce, hot sauce, mustard, pesto, capers etc.

When it comes to cooking you really don’t need to be spoon-fed line by line instructions, exact quantities and cooking temperatures. Trust your instinct, swap things in and out and your cooking experience will become simpler and faster. All you need is a rough idea of what ingredients work well together and the gist of the method. Gist, now there’s an underused and underrated word for you.

Trust yourself & cook!
