salmon with garlic

You should have a really a sharp knife in order to chop the garlic in small small pieces and you’d better be able to do it because you’ll need a lot of it if you want to repeat this recipe. Garlic is relative to onion and probably the most popular seasoning in the world. It has pungent smell, which is rather steady but it is a great appetizer adding zest to familiar food.

Besides it has number of health benefits that is why throughout ancient history it was used as a medication. It is able to protect from a range of infections, combat the cold, reduce blood pressure, improves cholesterol level and its consumption is an efficient way to sustain life.

Why do we want you to chop it? Because it does matter. The chopped fresh garlic is a part of this recipe, but if you prefer not to notice it in each bite, you can mince garlic using a mincing machine. The salmon should be cut into pieces with the same thickness in order to be cooked more or less quickly. Well, in general the dish couldn’t be easier, and couldn’t be more delicious.

In general salmon is served with herbs and lemon without other spicy ingredients in order not to dampen the taste. But here you can get just new experience and bring the garlic to the fore. You will not regret, we promise, as far as the taste is overwhelming though salmon can be lost in it a little bit. But perhaps it will hit the spot!
