Salmon on a bed of fresh garden pea’s..

Ok, this is so simple but so good..

Fat of your choice in the cast iron, a lovely piece of Thawed Salmon, ideally with skin on to crisp.. Preheat the pan to med-high heat and then add the salmon, cook till just done.. Add your choice of sea salt and cracked pepper.

In a different pot, bring salted water to a boil and put in your pea’s for just a min, you want to “just” cook them.. When the salmon is cooked, pull it out and add the just done drained pea’s to the hot salmon juice-fat- with salt-pepper, just toss for another 60 seconds or so. If you wanted to do so, you could put a little bit of cream in there but Its so good as is, that its really not needed..

I’m not sure that this is even a recipe given that it has so few things to it, but trust me, pea’s and salmon go together very well.. I have seen a pea-salmon-cream pie that looks delightful, and I might make a small one for myself, as my hubby does not eat fish..

    Yum! I just did “Herb Stuffed Trout”. Butter dabs on bottom of pan and top with fresh Parsley, Dill, Cilantro, Basil. Put fish on top and stuff same herbs into trout. Top trout with more herbs and dabs of butter and pepper. Bake covered till done and serve with rice and veggie of the evening.

    FYI: I got the recipe from the cookbook “Plank Cooking- The Essence of Natural Wood” by Scott & Tiffany Haugen. I didn’t use a plank, just a pyrex dish.

  3. Oh yeah! Guilty Pleasure Alert here…
    The fastest (winter time) lunch ever is 1/2 can of peas with toast alongside a tin of pink salmon with fresh-ground pepper and a little cider vinegar sprinkled over the top. YUMMY, fast and relatively inexpensive; )
