The last few weeks have been fairly trying. I have had to stay home to recover from some minor surgery (nothing serious) and being forced to stay home and relax has been fairly difficult. So today I thought I would take control back and use the time to create some delicious recipes that can help me recover faster and offer some new meal ideas for when I get back into my exercise regime.
On the surface this recipes looks and seems fairly complex but it really isn't. It's an adaption of my Green Eggs No Ham recipe I posted back in September with a few things added.
To finish off this recipe make the green eggs no ham recipe and add the smoked salmon and stir in for a couple of minutes until its cooked and the flavour and saltiness of the salmon has gone through the mixture. Then add the barley and stir.
Tahini dressing is really easy to make - essentially mix the tahini, garlic and lemon juice together. Tahini dries over time once the jar has been opened so you may need a bit more or a bit fewer lemons so add the lemon juice slowly and mix until you get the consistency you are after.
Then take a hand blender and blend in as much coriander and chives to your taste. This will give the tahini a lovely coriander flavour.
Plate everything and then used the leftover grease in the pan from the salmon smash to fry your egg.
The great thing about this recipe is that the smash will last a fair amount of time in the fridge and it doesn't lose its flavour so its a great meal to pre-prepare. You can just fry/boil/poach your eggs to accompany whenever is convenient or you could just leave the eggs altogether.
Just remember cooking is about changing things over time to suit what you like. So if you want add more salmon or change the greens around - maybe add peas one week. Having a healthy diet is about ensuring you change your food as much as possible to get variety into your diet.
Hope this recipe gives you some inspiration and feel free to share any cooking tips below!
