Inspiration from

Christopher Robin

I haven’t watched Winnie the Pooh in such a long time but I loved the concept of the stories intertwined into the book. We recently watched Christopher Robin just as some background noise but ended up being pulled in to watch it. I had missed the animals, the personalities each of the characters owned was brought back to life in a stuffed toy like visual. It was actually better than I was expecting it to be and thus gave me inspiration to make a recipe!

Tigger is as fun spirited as always however I never really got on with that sort of character. I don’t have much outgoing personality myself so I never connected to him. Owl’s wise and forgetful nature was a treat to relive, and Rabbit’s fussy and frustrated being were great to watch too. With Rabbit returning to his brown self like in the books, he felt like an actual rabbit! Whilst small roles, Kanga and Roo gave a hint of motherly love in the Hundred Acre Wood scenes.

Moving onto my favourite characters, Eeyore somehow got a major role. Still holding an emotionless personality, he recognises Christopher first through his playful ways. He had many witty lines throughout the movie. Piglet was as anxious as ever but held other characters together through his loyalty. And Winnie the Pooh was a just a “silly old bear”. Many chuckles at the words he spoke and things he did, he brought the movie back up to Disney’s classic standards.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Honey
  • 3 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 Salmon Fillets
  • Salt and Black Pepper
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1 Lemon (sliced into rings)
  • Freshly Chopped Parsley (to garnish)

I chose Honey as the key ingredient in this recipe. Honey sits nicely with Salmon (which is commonly enjoyed by bears) and creates a sweet flavour to the savoury fish. Mixing it with garlic, soy sauce and lemon makes a intense flavour you can help but enjoy.

Adding to the dish, I chose Kale as a side vegetable. It lacks strong flavours but is good to mop up the sauce with. I also added some new potatoes to the side with parsley sprinkled over as salmon goes well with a helping of boiled potatoes. Overall the dish was a treat and a tasty bite to have at a lunch time.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a small bowl, mix together the honey, soy sauce, lemon juice and red pepper flakes.

Step 2

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat two tbsp oil. When oil is hot but not smoking, add salmon skin-side up and season with salt and pepper. Cook salmon until deeply golden, around 6 minutes, then turn over and add the remaining tablespoon of oil.

Step 3

Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for 1 minute. Add the honey mixture and sliced lemons and cook until sauce is reduced by about a third.

Step 4

Baste the salmon with the sauce when serving and garnish with sliced lemon and parsley to serve. Optionally add some boiled new potatoes and steamed kale to the side.
