With Summer just around the corner, I think it's time to introduce some fresh and colourful meals, don't you?

Pan-seared salmon is one of those recipes that take you 15 minutes start to finish, and yet give such an impressive result you can easily serve it on your dinner parties. Crispy and golden on the outside, tender and flakey on the inside - in my opinion, preparing your salmon in the pan definitely does give better results than baking it in the oven.

Minimal ingredients, minimal effort, maximum flavour! What's not to like?

  • A staple in my house when I can afford fresh fish. The prices these days . . . Typically I purchase a half or whole fish and cook it up and graze for a few days. This time of year, on the grill it goes! Asparagus is one of our favorites. That I scored at a dollar a pound and I picked up ten pounds! Great recipe and going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

    What are radish sprouts? Don't think I've ever seen them in stores.
