Googie’s Kitchen presents Spicy Salmon and Potato Stew

Spicy Salmon and Potato Stew

Nowadays with the UK back in lockdown and with my husband and son at home I need easy, nutritious meals that we can all enjoy. At this time, especially when the weather is colder outside, I always tend to use the slow cooker. I find it the easiest way to get a healthy meal on the table without too much fuss. Now, like many parents in the UK, I have homeschooling to help with again, I need no-hassle dinners.

My slow cooker is a life saver during these periods. This post is not an advert for slow cookers but I cannot explain to you how much I appreciate mine. It saves me so much time and energy. Plus, it means I have more time to spend with my family. When the dinner is finally ready I feel like the fairies have come to cook the meal for us. So it’s very gratefully received by me and this dinner was loved by my family too. Below is a video and recipe for you.

Spicy Salmon and Potato Stew

Spicy Sumac Salmon and Potato Stew is a meal that is full of flavour and texture. My son Ted and I love fish so we really enjoyed this dinner. Howard, my husband, isn’t so keen but he did like this one. I also made enough for another meal. Therefore I put the leftovers into the freezer and this will make another quick meal during the week. However you decide to eat this meal, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
