Pan Fried Salmon, Green Beans and Red Pepper.
Because of versatility and taste salmon is my favorite fish. This is one of the simplest versions I have made. It can be made in less then 20 minutes, including preparation, same time as rice takes to cook. I have to mention, though, that the red pepper was already cleaned from prep for previous meal so all I had to do was remove ends from green beans and slice them in half and prepare the wasabi sauce.
Again, this is so simple.
§ Salmon fillet portion, skin on or skinless, 1 per person
§ Salt and White pepper
§ Green Beans, ends removed and cut in half lengthwise and pre-cooked in microwave for 1 minute.
§ Red Pepper, julienned
§ 1 tsp. olive oil
§ 1 tsp. butter
§ 1 tsp. wasabi powder mixed with 1 tsp. water
§ 1/3 cup Mayonnaise
§ 2 Tbs. Maple Syrup
Mix all ingredients till smooth
Season salmon with salt and pepper (for that little extra I use smoked sea salt).
Preheat frying pan with butter and oil on medium high. Add salmon skin side up together with beans and peppers. When salmon is opaque 1/3 up, about 2 minutes, turn over skin side down and stir beans and peppers. When salmon is almost flaky, about another 2 – 3 minutes, remove from heat and serve on preheated plate with rice, beans and red pepper. Spoon wasabi/mayo/maple syrup sauce on side or on top of salmon.
This will be our post golf game lunch, I think. So tasty and fast.
