Brain Food

This week my boys, as well as those of some of my friends, have had Naplan (The National Assessment Program for Literacy and Numeracy.

This post below is from my lovely Interior Designer Friend at AlixHelpsInteriors (check out her Instagram!)

Naplan schmaplan I say, but did need to conjure up dinner that was:
a) Quick
b) full of brain fortifying qualities
c) healthy

Wheel out the salmon - a versatile beast and always a hit with the kiddos.

Place your salmon fillets on a baking tray while your oven gets up to temp (200deg)
Drizzle with a little oil, a good pinch of salt and a crunch of pepper
Whack it in the oven - maybe 16 mins depending on the size of your fillets. Ideally, the middle should still be pink and undercooked when you pull it out.
Throw a punnet of cherry toms into a small dish, drizzle with oil. Whack in oven next to fish.
Next up, grab a good store bought whole egg mayo from the fridge. Zest a lime, stir in zest with half the lime juice. Mixy mix.
During the last 5 mins of cooking, bung beans in a pan with enough boiling water to cover. Al dente is best here. 

When your fish is cooked to your liking let it sit for a couple mins while you plate your beans and toms in a suitably attractive manor. Pop a piece of fish on each plate and drizzle with the yummy sauce.

Tuck in.

Hoorah! Usually I serve with steamed potatoes, or roasted kipflers but tonight I just served it alone for a lighter option. The kids had a bread roll to boost those carbs baby, so everyone's happy.

Bon appetit!
