Threw some things together for dinner tonight and it turned out to be something so awesome I have to share it.
If Smurfs Baked Potatoes:
For 2 people
You will need:
- 2 salmon fillets
- Blue cheese
- 1 onion
- 1 green pepper
- 2 potatoes suitable for baking
- 2 medium sized mushrooms
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 2 cheese triangles
- 1/4 glass of white wine
I cleaned 2 medium sized potatoes, pricked them with a fork all over and chucked in the microwave for 5 mins, turned them over and microwaved for a further 5 mins.
In a frying pan I added 1 chopped onion, 1 chopped green pepper, 2 large shrooms, knob of butter, 4 peeled and crushed cloves of garlic, 3 matchbox sized slices of Stilton cheese ( each slice approx 5mm thick) and 2 cheese triangles. Left it on a low heat and mixed it up every 5 mins or so.
When the potatoes feel a little soft I threw them in the oven on 200 where they should be fine until serving time but you will want to turn them from time to time.
With the contents of the frying pan starting to shrink a little and the cheeses melted into a liquid state I added a little white wine to make sure nothing gets stuck to the pan. Stirring it with a wooden spoon while make sure the pan is de-glazed.
I then added 2 salmon fillets to the frying pan and simmered for about 8 mins. I then flipped over the salmon and simmered for a further 8 mins on a very low heat.
As everything arrives at the ready stage I removed the potatoes from the oven and cut a + into the tops of them then mashed up the potato inside with a fork.
Fished out the salmon from the frying pan and placed them onto the plates next to the potatoes then used the wooden spoon to serve up the frying pan contents on top of the potato and salmon.
