Ingredients

Mashed Peas

Warm Cherry Tomato Salad

Preparation

  1. Cut the salmon fillet in half lengthwise then in half crosswise so as to make 4 steaks.
  2. In a bowl, combine the lime juice and honey. Pour over the salmon and coat well.
  3. Season with pepper and let marinate for 20 minutes.

Mashed Peas

  1. In a small saucepan, soften the shallots in the oil. Add the peas and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the wine, cover and cook until it reduces by half. Season with salt and pepper. In a food processor, purée until smooth. Return to the saucepan and keep warm.

Warm Cherry Tomato Salad

  1. In a small saucepan, gently heat the oil, garlic and pepper flakes for about 5 minutes. Strain the oil through a sieve to remove the pepper flakes and garlic. Set the oil aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the tomatoes with the oil (still hot). Season with salt and pepper. Add the cilantro and stir to blend.
  3. In a ridged non-stick skillet, grill the salmon on both sides until the flesh is slightly opaque in the centre. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the pea purée among 4 plates, place the salmon steaks on mashed peas and serve with the tomato salad. Drizzle the salmon with the remaining oil and serve.

Note

The benefits from eating fish outweigh the potential risks from contaminants. That is why it is recommended to eat two to three meals of fish every week. Fatty fish contain valuable omega-3 essential fats that our bodies do not make and offer many health benefits against cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases. Remember: you must vary the types of fish you consume.
