Salmon with stir fry veg

Simple dish, healthy and quick to make! I first made this dish with Thai fish cakes (instead of salmon) but deep frying puts me off because I end up wasting a bottle of oil and it just seems rather unhealthy. With salmon it seems a lot healthier and the two taste awesome together.

I watched The Grudge recently (American version). It wasn’t particularly scary but the girl was creepy in it! Sarah Michelle Gellar doesn’t seem like a great actress… Would I recommend it? Not really. It reminds me of the Ring and the Ring was a lot better.

Have I watched anything else good recently? No – not really. The TV series Black Mirror was good (if you like messed up shows). Apart from that I mainly just watch cooking shows (Sad isn’t it? – but way more interesting than football) I want to get into Breaking Bad!

Not much else to say! So here is the recipe
