Dinner Tonight: Seared Salmon

It’s back to the cupboards for another recipe from Off the Shelf by Donna Hay. This time I had a nice piece of salmon and not a whole lot of time. I don’t usually like to fuss with seafood, trying to keep things as simple as possible and letting the natural flavor of the fish shine. But this looked like an easy way to add another dimension to what can become a standard—and a tad boring—week-night meal.

This recipe is anything but complex. The ingredient list is tiny, and the marinating time is short. Yet, the flavors caramelize beautifully over the high, high heat, creating a dead-simple recipe that takes less than 30 minutes.
