Pan Seared Salmon, Sweet Potato Fries and Green Beans
After a beautiful day at the Toronto Zoo, I was exhausted and actually had to take a little nap. I haven't been exercising much these days and with the past few weeks being pretty cold here, this had been a hard day's work for me! We had pan seared salmon served with the best store-bought sweet potato fries (frozen from Costco), and sauteed green and yellow beans and baby carrots. This is one of our family's favourite meals and best of all, it's fast and easy as well! For a night when cooking wasn't really fitting into my agenda, this was the perfect meal. For dessert, we had the To-Die-For Blueberry/Raspberry muffins we made together this afternoon. Without fresh berries onhand, we used frozen berries and it was just as scrumptious.
Montreal Steak Spice
about a butter for frying
Sprinkle filets lightly with seasoning salt and Montreal Steak Spice. Heat pan on medium high and melt butter. Add lightly seasoned salmon filets and cover for about 7 minutes (depending on the thickness of your filets). Turn and sear the other side or until fish is cooked through. Serve with your favourite veggies.
