The Salmon and the Apple

Finally! A decent cut of fish. It has been weeks since I prepared something like this. Also, I didn’t want my apples to go to waste, so I decided to give it a try. To be fair, apples are easily associated with dessert but I sued it as a base for this recipe (it does balance well the flavor with a little help from a lemon) and came out surprisingly well.

In it:

  • 250 Gr of Salmon
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 2 green apples
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Pepper
  • Rucola
  • Thyme
  • Cooking oil

How to:

Sauce

  • Peel and cut the apples. Add them in a pot with 2 cups of water.
  • Boil them at high heat until they get soft, then to low fire for 30 min.
  • While boiling, add the salt, juice of a half lemon and sugar.
  • Once fully cooked, mash them into a puree and serve first.

Salmon

  • In a very hot pan, add some cooking oil (a few drops) and place the salmon with the skin side down.
  • Add lemon slices, salt, pepper, and thyme on top and cover the pan with a lid.
  • Let it cook at medium fire for 7 minutes or until gold.
  • Serve on top of the apple sauce.
  • Garnish with rucola, tomato, and lettuce.
