Fresh Salmon with Sticky Orange Sauce and Watermelon Salad

Posted 2017-02-18 by finyfollow

Fresh salmon is healthy and melts in your mouth if you do not overcook it, so be careful to JUST cook it in this delicious, sticky recipe!

I prefer to buy salmon with the skin on as when cooking, it tends to fall apart easily if it has no skin.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Serves: 1 - salad serves 2 - 3

For the salmon
1 thick piece fresh salmon (about 250 g)
1 tbsp butter
½ cup dry white wine
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp fresh orange juice
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp honey
Sliced orange pieces, for garnish

For the salad
1½ cups watermelon, diced into about 2½ cm cubes
¾ cup cherry tomatoes
¼ cup Stilton, or other blue cheese, crumbled
¼ cup spring onions, sliced
½ cup parsley, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1½ tbsp red wine vinegar
Pinch cayenne pepper

For the salad
  • Mix the watermelon, and tomato together.

  • Add the blue cheese, spring onions, parsley and a bit of salt.

  • Mix the oil, vinegar, and cayenne together and mix into the salad.

  • Keep any juice that comes from the watermelon when cutting it, and add to the dressing.

  • For the salmon
  • Melt the butter in a fry pan over medium heat.

  • Put salt and pepper over the salmon, and cook it for about 3 - 4 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness - do not overcook as the inside should still be slightly dark pink. Take out of pan.
  • Keep this warm while you cook sauce

  • Turn the heat back to high and add the white wine. Stir, scraping any sediment left on the bottom from cooking the salmon.

  • Stir in the garlic and remaining ingredients (except orange segments for garnish).

  • Cook for about 5 minutes or until the sauce has reduced to about half and has started to thicken slightly.

  • Put the salmon on the plates, skin side down, and add the sauce and orange garnish.
