Salmon with Apple Fennel Salad

Ingredients

For the apple fennel salad
  • 1 apple, sliced on a mandolin
  • 1 fennel bulb, finely sliced on a mandolin
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 small handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For the salmon
  • 2 center-cut salmon filets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preparation Instructions

  1. Make the salad—Toss salad ingredients together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. Sear the salmon—Season salmon generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over high heat. When oil is hot, add salmon filets skin side down. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes. Flip salmon and cook for another 2 minutes or so, checking after a minute. When salmon flakes easily with a fork, it’s done.
  3. Finish and serve—Divide salad between 2 plates. Top with salmon and serve.

Tips

The Skinny on Skin

Crisp salmon skin delivers added layers of texture and flavor, so keep it on. Start cooking salmon skin side down to provide a protective layer between a hot skillet and the flesh of your fish.
