Finding Your Ease

Salmon Stir-Fry! Quick, easy, tasty!

Planning a relaxed evening or lunch and need a quick meal?! Here you go, give it a try!

When the kids were out of the house it was time to do some relaxed and uninterrupted cooking. Oh what I enjoyed it! I didn’t go for something crazy but something tasty and easy; the cutting took in fact longer than the cooking. Just what I was in for. Nice music, a glass of wine and chopping away!


This easy, tasty Salmon Stir-Fry is so worth it. And super quick, too!
I found it in Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food book.
