Roast Chicken, Peas & Coriander Fried Cauliflower “Rice”

The idea of making “rice” from cauliflower is both strange and intriguing. I am all for the idea of sneaking in vegetables in my diet but the idea of  a plate full of cauliflower in the absence of cream and blistered cheese topping ala gratin or crispy coat of chickpea batter may spell a risk of blandness and possibly, traumatise you with eating boring cauliflower.

I love salmon. It is rich, delicate, delicious, nutritious and it is one of those ingredients that the less you fuss over it, the better. I like to balance the richness of salmon with something acidic such as tamarillo salsa, lemon, and for this dish, vinegar, to offset this little fatty fish heh!

Glazed salmon is such a popular pairing (plus it sounded delectable!), so I decided to take the path of Chinese sweet and sour glazed which is made up of an equal proportion of brown sugar, soy sauce and white vinegar. It is without a doubt that this is an easy glaze formula you can remember huh?

If you are a long term reader of Fuss Free Cooking, I don’t need to tell you how much I love chicken. Since it is salad weather over here in Australia, I have been obsessing with salad. Chicken salad to exact.  To make salad making even more delightful, I had great luck in sourcing local fresh lettuce leaves from my favourite providores of gourmet local food, A Slice of Orange and super sweet grape tomatoes from Harris Farm Market. I get excited over little things in life, like getting my hands on almost freckle free lettuce leaves, as if it is freshly picked from my imaginary garden or the beautiful charred lines of grilled chicken or croutons in salad. Yes, croutons, the crispy tiny gold bread nuggets which bring the crunch and wow factor to a salad.

I have been spending a good amount of effort in working on my brownies recipe for the last few days. After baking a couple of trays of brownies, all I can say that I am all “brownied out” for the moment ha! On that note, I have been  easy on the cooking side of things, case in point the above lazy dinner which I made for dinner tonight. As I was editing the photos, I was surprised how well they turned out.  Salad is such a photogenic dish, don’t you think?  It makes me feel good by just looking at it!
