This doesn’t even seem worthy of posting and sharing it’s so easy.

The weekend saw a move into the red zone so today I ate a light lunch and a light tea.

Lunch

Slices of carrot, celery, cheese, and dates

Tea

Pan-fried salmon and two eggs fried in butter.

I cook my salmon this way for simplicity. I turn on the frypan and add a little Queensland nut oil and then lay the salmon skin side down. I put on a lid and start a 5-minute timer. At the end of 5 minutes I remove the lid, add some butter and crack in two eggs. I then turn the heat off and put the lid on for 90 seconds. You get perfect rare to medium rare salmon, crispy skin, and soft yolked fried eggs. I love the runny yolk with the salmon flesh and the crispy skin.
