Wild Alaska salmon with orange watercress and cucumber salsa
What will you need:
Knob of butter
Splash of olive oli
2 x 125g – 150g wild Alaska salmon fillets
Hand full of watercress (make sure you get rid of those stalks)
1/4 cucumber, finely chopped
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1 small orange
A few drops of white wine vinegar
Before we start whack the oven on to gas mark 5 (190C), now the good bit put the butter and the oli in a roasting pan and get it all nice and melted, then in goes your salmon (skin side down) and in to the oven, don’t touch for 12 minutes until it is nicely cooked (just how we like it).
While that’s all going on use a sharp knife to remove the peel and pith from the orange and cut in to segments making sure you get rid of all of those nasty white bits. Place it in a bowl along with the watercress, cucumber and onion. Jazz it up with a few drops of vinegar, salt and pepper and serve it with the fish and hey presto a nice little fish dish for two.
