Simple Crispy Salmon

(serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 4 fresh salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to taste

How to Prepare:

For a crispy flesh side: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Set an oven-safe pan over medium-high heat.

While the pan heats, thoroughly dry salmon with paper towels and lightly coat with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.

Place salmon in pan flesh side down and cook for 5 minutes or until it releases easily from the pan.

Flip salmon to skin side down and immediately transfer pan to the oven.

Bake 5–10 minutes until cooked.

For a crispy skin: Heat pan over medium-high heat.

Dry salmon with paper towels and coat with olive oil and salt. Lower heat to medium-low.

Place salmon skin-side down in the pan and continuously push down on fillets with a spatula for several minutes to keep skin in contact with the pan.

(For multiple fillets, push down using a metal pot lid smaller than the skillet.)

After the first few minutes, push down occasionally until skin is browned and crispy, about six minutes.

Flip salmon to flesh side down and cook another 1–2 minutes.

Preparation Example:


Tartare Sauce

  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard

How to Prepare:

Finely chop the herbs, spring onions, and capers, then combine with the mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice.

Allow the flavors to combine before serving, preferably for at least an hour. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 days.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Ginger Lime Fish Parcels

(serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 4 fish portions (about 6 oz. each of salmon or any flaky
    white fish)
  • 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • Zest and juice of 1–2 limes
  • 3 scallions/spring onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt

How to Prepare:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place each piece of fish on a large square of parchment paper.

Brush fish lightly with oil, then top with lime zest, ginger, scallions, and a sprinkle of salt.

Bring edges of parchment paper together and fold over several times to close into a parcel.

Bake for 12–16 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.

When cooked through, remove fish from the parcel, discard ginger pieces, and squeeze over the lime juice.

Preparation Example:


Peruvian Ceviche

(serves 2-4)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound very fresh white fish (such as halibut), skin removed
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt

How to Prepare:

Using a large, very sharp knife, slice the fish into 1½-inch cubes.

Place cubes in a bowl of chilled water.

Finely slice the red onions and rinse to remove the bitterness.

Drain the fish and combine with lime juice, cilantro, and salt.

Place the onions on top, then cover and refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.

How to Prepare:

To prevent sticking, rest the fish at room temperature between layers of paper towel for 20 minutes before cooking.

To prepare the sauce, blend olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt.

When ready to cook the fish, heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.

Place trout in the pan, skin side down.

Cook until skin is crisp and releases from the pan, approximately 3–4 minutes.

(serves 2-4)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp curry paste (see recipe below)
  • 4 scallions, chopped, white parts only (reserve green tops for curry paste)
  • ½ cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • ½ can coconut milk

How to Prepare:

Blend all of the curry paste ingredients in a blender until smooth, stirring occasionally.

Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and add the curry paste, about 4 tablespoons; stir until fragrant.

Add the scallions and shiitake mushrooms, and sauté until they begin to soften.

Stir in the coconut milk and then slide in the salmon pieces.

Cover and simmer for 3–5 minutes, until salmon is nearly cooked.

Top with kale, cover, and continue to simmer for another 2–3 minutes, until kale is wilted and salmon is just cooked through.
