Fish + Greens for Mondays

Seeing how we usually consume more alcohol over the weekend,
i’m trying to make more fish + vege dishes for dinner on Monday nights.
It’s probably more like a psychological effect that it makes us healthier bla bla bla but it works for us!

First time i tried making aioli = olive oil + garlic + mustard + egg yolk + black pepper.
I also threw in some shreds of basil and fennel tops for flavour.
Because Jamie Oliver said i can.

This is a fennel.
I didn’t even know how to cut a fennel before that day.
When in doubt, google.
And google will bless you with many-a video on how to cut fennel.

I’m not gonna post pictures of the vegetable broth i made cos it’s not that interesting (and i didn’t want to get steam on my camera lens).
Just threw the veggies into chicken stock in a pot.

I was so semangat, i even slipped basil and mint into slits in the salmon before frying it.

I’m usually very fussy + critical over my own cooking,

My crispy fried salmon covered with aioli,
with long beans + pea pods with basil and mint in a light broth.

I’m not bothering to write down the recipe cos you can just view it *here*!
