If my last post was about sardines, I’ll keep talking about tasty, Omega3 rich fishes: salmon, which, together with tuna are my absolutely favourite.
To be honest, I’ll have my pan fried salmon with just some squished lemon and boiled potatoes, but with some simple ingredients you will be able to cook an amazing yet quick and easy dish in half an hour!
Don’t be afraid to cook this if you have guests (and of course if they like fish and are not allergic to it!!), because even when it is an easy dish, the flavour is well worth in this combination.
In this case, the “salsa” doesn’t require any cooking at all, just needs to rest for at least half an hour so the flavours mix.
Here is the recipe 🙂
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1 spring onion
- the juice of one orange
- 1 spoon of soya sauce
- 1 spoon of honey
- 1 spoon of olive oil
- salt (if needed, usually it wont't be with the soya sauce) and pepper
- Salmon (te quantity is up to you)
- Potatoes to boil
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/2 a broccolli
- 1 lemon
- salt and pepper
- olive oil to pan-fry the salmon and sautee the veggies.
- Let's start with the salsa so it has time to rest. Just chop very small the red pepper and slice thinely the spring onio. Mix with the oil, orange juice, soya sauce and honey.
- Add salt (if needed) and pepper and mix well.
- Set aside and leave to rest.
- In a pot, boil the potatoes with salt, pepper and a bay leaf.
- Start sauteing the broccolli cut in very small pieces with one spoon of olive oil.
- The broccolli will be "al dente" (tender but still a bit hard in the middle) so it will probably will be a little hard when the potatoes are already cooked, so drain them and add them in the same pan with the broccolli and keep sauteing (add a little more oil if needed).
- Let's cook the salmon now. 1 spoon of olive oil in a pan, and place the salmon (skin down) to cook with salt and pepper.
- Don't forget to keep sauteing your veggies, and flip over the salmon to cook by the other side when needed.
- Once your meal is cooked to the point you desire, place the vegies on your plate, squish the lemon over them (I like to add some parmesano too) and the salmon, topped with the "salsa".
- And enjoy before it gets cold!!
