Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Pan-Fried Salmon II

Here's an easy week-night dinner recipe for you!

Salmon is our favourite fish and the one we make most often.

I recommend cutting your portions in half lengthwise or butterflying them to make them thinner - if they're too fat the outside may burn before the inside is cooked.

This is yet another recipe that I don't have measurements for, but I know you can do this anyway!


Pan-Fried Salmon II

Ingredients
  • salmon filet cut into portions
  • pink salt
  • pepper
  • plain or Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • all purpose flour
  • oil for cooking
  • lemon wedges for serving
Directions
  1. Prep your salmon by patting it dry with paper towel. Sprinkle it with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Combine breadcrumbs and flour with a fork - start with 1/2 cup of each. The amount you need depends on how much fish you're cooking.
  3. Heat a deep pot (to minimise splattering) over medium heat and put in some oil (I use olive or avocado) just to cover the bottom of the pot. The fish will release some oil as it cooks.
  4. Once the oil is hot, drop in a tiny sprinkle of flour to see if it starts sizzling. If it sizzles, add a few pieces of fish to the pot. Do not overcrowd - you can do this in batches.
  5. Cook for a few minutes on both sides until golden and cooked through. 
  6. Transfer the cooked pieces to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm if you have more than one batch. You should not need to add any more oil to the pan - there should still be enough for a second batch.
  7. I also like to put mine on a little rack (see picture above) so it doesn't get soggy on the bottom.
  8. Serve with rice and lemon wedges.
