Hello! September has been a really hectic month as many assignment submissions are due in this month itself. Besides, it is also a month where many of my friends and relatives have their birthdays on. Hence, being a student who always struggles from limited money or allowances, it really is quite challenging to fork out so much money to buy presents or treating them out for a meal. Because, once spent, it means that we will only be left with that limited amount of money for the rest of the month (lol).

It’s okay friends, I totally understand your concern. Hence, in this post, I would like to share with all of you a recipe – Fried Salmon which I am sure all of you will love. Doesn’t the picture itself shows how delicious and atas already?  I am sure it can impress the person who you want to cook for, especially when it is home-cooked by you. I mean, who doesn’t love home cooked food better right?

Well, it is not only delicious but it is also quick and simple to prepare, requiring only a handful of simple ingredients that you can easily purchase from your nearby supermarket and 15 minutes of your time. Another bonus point is that, as salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acid DHA which is critical for the brain to function well, it is especially good for students like us to have a better concentration on our studies.

To serve this dish, I accompanied it with some french beans and baby corn  as it is both crispy and sweet. Besides, they add good nutrients to the meal as well, where they can provide fibers and vitamins that are needed for our daily consumption. Now let’s jump straight to the ingredients and preparation needed to prepare this meal.
