Pan Roasted Salmon

Salmon is simply pan fried in oil and butter and served with a raw slaw of apple and pak choi, bound by a light lemon and yoghurt dressing. Recipe by Jack Lucas

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • Sprig thyme
  • 25 grams butter
  • Olive oil
  • 2 braeburn apples
  • 1 pack bok choy
  • Handful cashew nuts
  • Handful of raisins
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 echallion shallots
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 tablespoons greek yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • Dash of cider vinegar

Steps

  1. Ensure your salmon is de-scaled and make small incisions into the skin, down just into the flesh. Season well with salt, pepper and thyme leaves
  2. Add oil to a frying pan and, when hot, place the salmon in skin side down. Leave the salmon for 2-3 minutes, or until the cooked flesh comes 3/4 of the way up the salmon. At this stage, add butter and baste well. Remove from the heat, flip the salmon over and the residual heat will cook the salmon through
  3. Meanwhile, finely slice the pak choi, shallots and apples and place into a large mixing bowl with the cider vinegar, raisins and cashew nuts. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mustard, juice of 1/2 and lemon and the yoghurt with plenty of salt and pepper. Add this dressing to the herbs and combine to form a salad.
  4. Remove the salmon from the pan and serve alongside the salad!
