Salmon is one of the very few fish I eat. I'm getting there,,, I love food but I'm still limited to the seafood arena,,, having quite bad childhood memories with it, it's taking awhile to embrace their glory...
Tip 1: Make sure you de-bone the steak.
This took me just 25 minutes, it was a breeze....
6 ounces salmon steak, skinned
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided into 1tbsp and 2 tbsps
2/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 celery rib, thinly sliced crosswise
2-3 tablespoons of red pepper flakes
dash of cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you want the dish to be)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
Cook onion in oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring occassionally, until pale golden, about 3 minutes. Add celery and pepper flakes, stirring until celery just begins to soften, about 2 minutes.
Add cream and bring just to a boil, then add salmon with its juice. Simmer until just cooked through and cream slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in remainin 2 lime juice and 1/4 tsp salt.
Spoon seafood mixture on top of a garlic fried rice and sprinkle with cilantro.
Tangy, creamy and spicy... this dish is also great with shrimp!
