Fish Salad with Straw Mushrooms and Snow Peas

It was my birthday yesterday and I think I’ve had enough sugar to last me a month. And to top it all, a big juicy tenderloin burger. You know why the salad now, don’t you? Besides that, I found some really beautiful straw mushrooms and snow peas at a fancy supermarket here. Also, I didn’t use basa. I got myself some sole fish.

In the same pan, toss the mushrooms in and saute for a couple of mins.

Now saute the snow peas as well for another 2 mins.

Assemble the salad with the fish, mushrooms and snow peas along with whatever greens you have with you. I had rocket, and then I tossed in some green apple slices and pomegranate seeds.
