June is the month for birthday’s in my family, Dad and Marie last week, and Mam tomorrow. I will see Mam very soon as we are going to Devon for a mini holiday, but Tonight’s dinner is dedicated to her in the meantime- happy birthday Mam!!!

ImageMam likes a bit of salmon, and we like a curried fish dish so tonight I am honouring both adapting a recipe from the new Rick Stein book on India. It is called ‘Fish Fry’ and served with a ‘Kachumber salad’, pan fried sapphire and some roasted potatoes. And here’s how it goes:

Fish Fry

1 glove garlic, finely chopped

Small piece of ginger, grated

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp cornflour

2 tsp chilli powder

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp turmeric


2 salmon fillets

  • mix together all the ingredients apart from the fish.
  • Rub all over the salmon and leave for 20 mins.
  • either fry in a little oil or roast in the oven until just cooked through.

The salad served with this was particularly delicious:

Kachcumber Salad

6 vine ripened tomatoes

1/2 cucumber (I left this out as I hate cucumber!!!)

1 red onion, sliced into half moons

1 green Chilli, chopped

1/2 cumin seeds

Handful coriander leaves, roughly chopped

1 tbsp lime juice

  • Toss everything together!

ImageThe picture does not do this justice as it was absolutely delicious! Bon appetit Mam, and happy birthday xxx
