The month of Ramadan began last week. For all of you who fast, after a busy working day, I believe that it is sometimes challenging to prepare a healthy and delicious meal for iftar, without spending hours in the kitchen. It is certainly important that after an all-day fast, food for iftar is not difficult for the stomach.
My suggestion is seafood in 3 ways: salmon with vegetables, tuna file with bulgur wheat and pasta with seafood.
You do not need more than 30 minutes to prepare each of these dishes. And seafood is In season in May, so it’s a shame not to use fresh fish from fish markets.
Salmon with vegetables
500 gr salmon file
150 ml soy sauce
50 ml oil
1 Tablespoon of honey
200 gr corn
Remove the skin from the salmon fillets. In a bowl mix the soy sauce, honey, ginger, finely chopped garlic and chili powder.
Place salmon fillets and sprinkle them with marinade in the freezer bag. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Get the pan warm and put a little oil. Remove the salmon from the marinade and bake for 2 minutes on each side. Bring out the fried salmon from the pan and briefly warm the remaining marinade.
Spice the corn and briefly fry on butter.
Upon taste, sprinkle the salmon with marinade and serve with corn (or other vegetables as desired) and salad.
Tuna file with bulgur wheat
1/2 cup of bulgur wheat
400 g tuna file
50 ml soy sauce
ginger, turmeric, spice mix to taste
cheese or salad
Wash the tuna file and place it between two cooking papers to absorb excess water. Spice the tuna with spices to taste.
Cover the bulgur wheat with 1 and 1/2 cup of water and cook until the water evaporates, about 15 minutes in the medium heat.
Fry the tuna on olive oil for 3 minutes on both sides. Sprinkle with soy sauce and leave aside. Serve with bulgur, fresh salad or cheese.
Pasta with seafood
500 g seafood
150 g pasta
100 ml cooking cream
spices to taste
Wash the seafood and leave it in the bowl so that the excess water falls. Fry on olive oil and spice it to taste (garlic, a mixture of spices, ginger). After 5 minutes add cooking cream and leave for a further 2 minutes.
Cook the pasta (if the pasta is buckwheat then you need to cook for exactly 5 minutes).
Mix pasta with seafood and serve with feta cheese.
I want you a peaceful month of Ramadan and to welcome Eid joyfully. We will prepare baklava together, of course.
