Salmon Chunks in Sweet & Sour Sauce
I love salmon . I like to fry it seasoned with just salt and pepper . But as I want to blog it , taking photos of just a slab of pan-fried salmon seems a little bit boring hee hee So I dressed it up a little bit . If you're going to wonder what's with 10 grams of ketchup ? why don't she just use a tablespoon to measure it ? Actually I used a packet of ketchup that I got from McDonalds as I have loads of it ^o^" Oh so as the chili sauce , too :P Salmon's rich in omega-3 fatty acids so it's good for you & me . I sound like a salmon commercial hahaha
