Fishy fingers

This evening Gareth requested Salmon for dinner. It has also been an evening for trying out a new kitchen gizmo (the Stainless steel bar of soap). So given it is his bath night anyway, I saw no harm in letting his 8 year old hands prepare the fish, and test whether the stink removing bar of metal could do it’s job.

To start we had two fillets of wild salmon (300 grams each), which we seasoned with salt, pepper, slices of lemon and fresh dill. These were then sandwiched together in the BBQ fish cage, brushed with olive oil, and grilled for 10 minutes on each side.

Served with barbequed potatoes (micro waved for 5 minutes first to pre cook them), and a salad of rucola and stripy tomatoes (not sure what they are called, but they look good), we had a good meal. Gareth did me proud, finished half the salmon, and ate a good sized portion of salad and potatoes, with a running commentary of which items contained vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates.

The only down side is that his hands don’t smell like fish, so he thinks he can avoid having a shower tonight.
