Dinner tonight ...

Recently in Adelaide I had dinner at the Old Lion and ordered the Atlantic Salmon Nicoise  ... it was yummy and felt fairly healthy!

So tonight I was on the search for a recipe ... found one in one of my favourite cookbooks ... Stephanie Alexander's "The Cooks Companion".

The recipe originates in the south of France in Nice and traditionally has Tuna but we had Atlantic Salmon!

Basically it is green beans and baby potatoes cooked and added while warm to kalamata olives, boiled eggs 1/4ed, Roma tomatoes 1/4ed and I added baby capers because I didn't have anchovies and gently tossed!

Then plate it with  cos lettuce (what I had), top with other salad items and the cooked Atlantic salmon.

The very light dressing was olive oil, freshly cracked black pepper and 1/2 the amount of red wine vinegar that I mixed with the warm and cold ingredients.

Yummy and felt healthy!!

Oh yum, that looks delicious. Atlantic Salmon is so yummy. Pity we can't catch it in our seas around here. LOL.
