Salmon Crumble with Lemon Courgettes



this is what we had for dinner tonight. it was a really simple combination that was really good. it was also really easy to make, which was a good thing since it was a bit of a crazy day today. i worked at the cafe this morning and then picked up the girls from school and dan from the center. we then all came home and ate lunch. there were painters painting the outside of our house when we got home. our hot water has been broken for the last day and a half and the dishes were stacking up. and my groceries didn't get delivered until about 4:30 today. in the middle of all this the repair man did come and temporarily fix the hot water, he'll be back tomorrow morning to fix it permanantly. so i managed to make dinner tonight while also making chocolate chip cookies for the hub and while dan cleaned all the dirty dishes and the girls helped him dry and put things away. our kitchen really is too small to do that many things at once in it! anyway here is the recipe...

from Nick Nairn's Top 100 Salmon Recipes
2 tablespoons butter
4 salmon fillets
85 g (3 oz) fresh breadcrumbs
25 g (1 oz) freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley and basil
freshly ground sea salt and pepper

for the lemon courgettes
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 medium courgettes, thinly sliced
juice of 1/2 lemon

Preheat the oven to 200 C/400 F. Lightly oil a baking dish and place the salmon fillets in it.

Mix all the crumble ingredients together in a bowl and lightly rub together with your fingers. Sprinkle evenly over the salmon fillets. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is done and the crumble topping is crisp and golden.

For the courgettes, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic clove and saute for about 1 minutes. Add the courgettes and cook until soft and turning slightly brown. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

Another great recipe to include in Amy's recipe book. I plan to continue to collect recipes and make an addition at Christmas. And of course, Lindsey showed an interest - so guess what she'll get at Christmas... Her own version of Somer's recipes!
Love,
Sue

Your blog is incredible! It is so clean and yet warm at the same time. It is great to see how you have shared the things that are important to you into this great journal. It says a lot about you.
My mom loves to cook and is like you when it comes to kitchen gadgets so I looked at your side bar and smiled.
My prayer go out to you and your family as you adjust to life in the UK.
