Summer Sunday Lunch!


Run out of ideas on what you should make for your summer lunch? Well, look no further! Today I’m going to share with you one of my favourite recipes for a great Sunday lunch. My aunt-who’s more like a sister to me- was the one who taught me this and I just had to share this with you.  Bonus- this is great #EatCleanTrainDirty meal since it’s very healthy for you and contains all of the seven food groups.

[For people living in Trinidad, I got the potatoes, asparagus and salmon at the Hi-Lo in Marabella] 

For the Potatoes: 

  • Klondike Rose potatoes which are my ultimate favourite potatoes in the world- like really, these are just the best
  • butter
  • garlic
  • parsley

Directions: 

  1. boil klondike rose potatoes until they are soft and the jacket appears to be ‘cracking’ (see video below for example)
  2. in a pan/skillet, add some butter and garlic
  3. add klondike rose potatoes when the garlic becomes golden brown (oh my gosh- the smell at this time is just delicious)
  4. add a handful or parsley and cook until potatoes are light brown- let the parsley wilt but don’t burn it!

Potaotes

For the Vegetables: 

  • asparagus
  • pearl onions
  • sweet pepper/bell pepper
  • carrots
  • olive oil
  • black pepper
  • baking dish

Directions: 

  1. turn oven on at 400 degrees
  2. thinly slice up your carrots & sweet peppers/bell peppers
  3. peel the skin off your pearl onions (see the video below for quick trick!) or if you’re not using pearl onions, be sure to slice your onion up into smaller chunks
  4. for the asparagus, cut off the ends of the stalks (I do this because I find it can sometimes be really hard and unpleasant to chew on)
  5. to the baking  dish, add some olive oil
  6. put all your vegetables into the dish and toss them (I like using my hands)
  7. add some black pepper (and whatever other seasoning you may like) and then toss again
  8. place vegetables into the oven for 15-20 minutes

For the Salmon:

  • salmon
  • olive oil
  • black pepper
  • baking dish

Directions: 

  1. turn oven on at 400 degrees (if you’re doing this entire meal, then the oven will already be on with your vegetables)
  2. in your baking dish, add some olive oil
  3. place your salmon into the dish
  4. drizzle some olive oil over it
  5. sprinkle with black pepper

N.B. Feel free to add onions to this if you would like! I omitted it since I was very generous in the amount of pearl onions I used in my vegetables

Salmon

For the Salmon Dip:

  • sour cream
  • parsley
  • thyme
  • *dill is a great option but I couldn’t fin any so I substituted it for the parsley)

Directions: 

  1. mix all the ingredients together! Of course, make this dip in proportion to the amount of salmon you’re having!

For the Salmon Garnish:

  • lemon

Directions: 

  1. slice lemon up- don’t forget to take out the seeds!

Some tips:

These are just my suggestions that I think would be useful when cooking this meal. Everything should be finished in just about an hour!

  • Turn on the oven before starting anything else
  • Put the potatoes to boil
  • Prepare your salmon and put it in the oven
  • Prepare your vegetables and put in in the oven
  • While the potatoes are boiling and the vegetables are in the oven, as well as the salmon, prepare the salmon dip and put in the fridge to get chilled. You can also prepare the lemons at this point
  • By now, your potatoes should be finished, so cook them in the pan now
  • Your vegetables and salmon should be more or less finished at this point!

Hope you enjoy your Sunday Lunch- don’t forget to thumbs up and subscribe!
