Pan-Roasted Salmon with Wild Mushrooms



boneless salmon fillet juice of half a lemon curry salt (1/3 curry powder to 2/3 salt) 2 varieties of mushroom, whole one clove of garlic, finely chopped splash of balsamic vinegar handful of fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped


Rub the salmon with lemon juice and sprinkle with curry salt.
Heat a little olive oil in a hot griddle pan (I love sear marks) to a very high heat, lay the salmon on and bring it down to 2/3 heat. Don’t touch it.
Heat some olive oil in another pan for the mushrooms. Add the mushrooms to the pan along with the garlic. Toss, add a little balsamic (some white wine would do nicely here too, I think) and season with freshly ground salt and pepper. Bring the heat down.
When the salmon is 2/3 cooked the way up (you will be able to see the flesh colour change) flip it over. Again, don’t touch it. It should sit there until it is done, which will take another couple of minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish.
Scatter the fresh parsley on the mushrooms. Serve with the salmon.
In the picture I also added an onion in with the mushrooms but I don’t think they added much. If I had let them caramelise and sweeten for a bit longer though, it could have been quite a tasty combination.
