Pan-Fried Salmon with Sauteed Vegetables

This is an simple salmon dish that we can prepare at home with ease.  Few ingredients:  Salmon fillet (or other fish fillet), carrot, bell pepper, zucchini and fresh lemon.  I chose these vegetables for their bright cheerful colours.

To prepare:
1) Cut the vegetables into cubes.  For chopped carrot, I prefer to gentle boil in stock for a few minutes before stir frying it.

2) Heat up a small pot or pan.  Add a little oil.  Stir fry the zucchini and carrot, add a little garlic (or chopped onion).  Add in a little stock.  Once the zucchini turns soft, add in the bell peppers.  Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of dried dill.  Cover and keep warm.

3) Score the skin of the salmon and season with salt and pepper.

4) Heat up a pan, add a little oil.  When the pan is sizzling hot, place the salmon fillet in pan, skin-side down.  Gently fry the fish over medium heat for a few minutes till the skin is crispy and brown.  Carefully flip the fish over and squeeze some lemon juice over it.  Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.  Turn off heat and leave the salmon fillet in pan.

5) Lay the sauteed vegetables on plate and sit the salmon fillet on top.  Garnish with a little lemon zest and a sprinkle of dried dill.
