Here’s another fun dish you can do at home. I usually prepare this dish when we have parties and upon my son’s request. So here goes….. This serves 2 people.
Here are some of the ingredients you will need.
A few things I forgot to take photos of. Olive oil, white wine, capers, water and salt 😀 First up…. slice the 3 cloves of garlic into thin slices, roughly chop 2 Tbsps dill and slice 1/2 a lemon into rings. Set aside.
Pat salmon dry with paper towels. This is to make sure that the seasonings stick to the fish. This was a 450 gram salmon fillet.
Using a pastry brush and spread about 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard.
Season with salt, pepper and olive oil. Rub the oil on the fish so that it coats it. Season both sides.
Rub the chopped dill on top of the salmon and spread evenly.
Top with lemon slices.
Heat a non stick skillet with olive oil over high heat and carefully place the salmon and cook until golden. Flip and cook the other side until done. You can also finish this dish in a 350F oven. I usually use the oven when I prepare for a party.
Look at that delicious crust on top. Mmmmmm….. 😛
Please forgive me as i was not able to take photos of the next steps. I’ll try to explain it as best as i can.
Remove excess oil except for about 1 Tbsp. Add garlic slices and cook for about 30 seconds. Add capers 1/4 cup white wine and allow to reduce. Add 3-4 Tbsps water (or seafood broth or chicken stock) and season lightly with salt and pepper. Finish with 1 Tbsp cold butter and swirl it in the pan. Remember to taste it 😀 Pour sauce on top of salmon and serve.
Found amazing Haricots Verts in Rustans Forbes and I blanched them for several seconds, and sauteed them in olive oil and freshly ground pepper. I didnt add salt because of the salt content in the fish dish. I also sauteed some fresh button mushrooms. Nom..Nom..Nom…
Serve with lemon slices.
