A nice dinner for two!

I know. It has been so long without posting... I really feel guilty. I've been so busy between France and Norway, trying to write my bachelor thesis. Anyway, here is a new post. I cooked a nice dinner for my girlfriend and I while I was in Oslo and I present you my new favorite vegetable:

They are indeed quite tasty.

For the starter, I used slices of eggplant and parsnip with a scampi on it. These vegetables work very well with seafood. I cooked the parsnip in boiling water for 10 minutes and the eggplant with butter, 3 minutes on each side.

For the scampi, I cooked them in a frying pan with a little bit of olive oil and soy sauce. Everything together really works perfectly and you can use it with fishes too.

For the next meal, I made an oven-baked salmon with spinach. Put the salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper in the oven at 180°c for 10 minutes. Don't overcook it or it will be dry, wasting this delicious fish.
With the spinach, put them in a saucepan with 10cl of water, a spoon of olive oil, salt and pepper and cook it at medium temperature until they are very soft without any water left. The sauce is a crème fraîche with lime, perfect for the salmon!


I might be without posting for some time again as my bachelor thesis is due very soon bu I'll do my best. See you soon!
