Salmon is the healthiest fish, and if you do not overcook it, it is also a delicious fish and very versatile.
I simply seared it in the pan here and served it with an unusual but also delicious salad.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus standing time
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 1 - 2
Ingredients 1 piece salmon, skin on
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1½ cups kale, ribs removed, thinly sliced
About 1½ tbsp dates
About ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
1½ tbsp toasted almonds (under grill for a few minutes)
Let the salmon sit out of the fridge for about 10 minutes before cooking it.
Meanwhile, mix the lemon juice, and some of the oil and a bit of salt in a large bowl.
Add the chopped kale, toss to coat and also let stand for about 10 minutes.
Cut the dates into thin slivers, and the apple into matchsticks.
Add the dates and almonds to the kale.
Add the apples and cheese and toss well and leave.
Rub some salt and pepper into the salmon and heat the remaining oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat.
Increase the heat slightly and cook the salmon, skin side up.
Cook until it is golden on one side - about 4 minutes and turn over and cook for about 3 more minutes - do NOT overcook.
