SIMPLE RECIPE FOR BEGINNERS
- Grounded black pepper
- Olive oil
- 1 Salmon fillet
- Parsley for garnish
In a nonstick skillet, pour a little olive oil. Heat the stove on medium heat and place the skillet on the burner, allow it to get hot. While the skillet is getting hot, use that time to prepare your salmon fillet.
Use a small needle-nose pliers to carefully remove the bones in the salmon fillet, then sprinkle a little salt and a little ground pepper on the fillet. Careful spread the salt and ground pepper on the fillet, a cooking brush or a spatula can be used. After seasoning the salmon fillet , the skillet should be hot enough. Carefully place the salmon fillet in the skillet (using a tong). Allow the first side that is placed to be cooked for three minutes , after the first three minutes, turn to the other side(also using a tong ) for another three minutes. Allowing the salmon to cook three minutes on both sides, the salmon will be pink in the inside. If you want it cooked, then live for five to six minutes on both sides. How do you know that it is cooked the way you like? Use a small end knife to carefully pierce through it. Not cooked to your liking after piercing the small end knife through it? Allow it to cook a little longer. One must always remember to carefully handle the salmon by the use of a tong. After the salmon has cooked to your liking, remove the salmon fillet from the skillet using a tong. Always remember to turn off the burner; we must not forget that we must save energy. Place the cooked salmon on a dish that has a piece of paper towel laying on it (the paper towel will absorb the excess oil from cooking the salmon). Take a plate and wipe it removing any excess water, then take the lemon and cut a slice from it and place it on the side of the plate. Using a tong, take your salmon and carefully place it on the plate, ensuring the first slice of lemon is next to it. Again take the lime and carefully cut a thinner slice of lemon and this time place it on top of the salmon fillet. Take the parsley, using a chop knife, chop the leafy part of the parsley and sprinkle the parsley over the salmon fillet. Voila!! You have a delicious salmon fillet. You might be asking yourself. Why so little seasonings? It is because salmon is already filled with its own natural flavor. The salt and grounded pepper is to enhance the flavor. Too much seasonings overshadow the flavor of the salmon itself. There are many other great recipes with salmon. A lot of fine dining restaurants, especially in the Caribbean, take great passion in preparing salmon.
