SALMON and SWEET CORN STEW
Having one of those days. Don’t want to cook. Don’t know what to cook even though I have a well planned database to choose from and a pantry and refrigerator fully stocked. I just DON’T FEEL LIKE COOKING!!! Let’s see what miracle I can pull from the cupboard. Always conscious of a balanced meal…protein, vegetables and some carbohydrates…I find a can of salmon…I find a can of corn…I find some jasmine rice…I find a can of coconut milk. Where’s my pressure cooker? I think I have an idea for supper.
This little bowl of yumminess was ready for digging in after 2 minutes cooking time in the pressure cooker. For the life of me I don’t understand why everyone wouldn’t want one of these amazing appliances in their galley or kitchen. Simply indispensable! Especially on hit-the-wall days when you just don’t feel like cooking.
Galley Kat Note: Tandoori spice blend is available through Taste of Mauritius in small batch packets and can be ordered online or are becoming increasingly more available in local shops around Nova Scotia. I don’t have any connection financially with the company but really love how the blend of spices adds that extra ‘something’ to a dish. If not available to you try adding an extra 1/2 tsp of Garam Masala instead.
