Grilled Salmon with Potato Salad

There was a period of time (when I was still breastfeeding) where I had salmon once or twice a week, until I was totally sick of it. Nowadays, I hardly touched salmon as I still had this phobia of over-dosage.

Recently I came across a recipe in I-Weekly which featured Grilled Salmon with Potato Salad which was slightly different from how I used to prepare salmon. Basically the mashed potato salad was spreaded on top of a slab of pre-panfried salmon and then grilled. Well, I thought, why not give it a try? The recipe included sides/garnishes like deep-fried lotus root and broccoli but I just substituted with baby spinach and grilled cherry tomatoes. The dish turned out to be quite yummy; the grilled potato salad was a nice twist which was crispy on the surface and creamy on the inside. Not bad at all, I guess I could make this as my lunch once in a while.
