Work has been so crazy, so unfortunately I didn't have time to cook or work on my blog. I was too tired and drained after a whole week at the office. Finally I've found something which is very easy to make.  After a day of work I really don't feel like cooking. I just want to a quick bite that doesn't take it hours to make.

Patatas Bravas from Jamie Oliver Food Escapes

The sauce is so good!!! It's the combination of salty and spicy. I thought this would be a quick recipe, but it takes more time than I expected. It's not because it's a complicated dish, but it's a lof of prep work. It took me almost an hour to make this, but it was totally worth it! Of course there is an easy cheat.

This recipe immediately caught my attention. I've never combined green tea with salmon, so I had no idea how it would taste like. Also I 've never used miso with chilli to make a sauce. If you have any doubts about the flavours, well don't! It is really worth the effort! Although the recipe should only take 15 minutes, it took me about half an hour. I'm just not very quick in the kitchen.
