Even if your salmon is frozen solid, you can make this healthy dinner quickly, with few ingredients, and enjoy the delicious freshness. For this dinner we will be using flash frozen wild salmon and frozen organic broccoli florettes.
Flash frozen seafood is actually very fresh. Because they freeze the fish immediately after it is caught, the nutrients remain until you defrost. The best way to defrost is put your fish in a plastic bag and let it sit in a pot of cold water. The fish will be ready in about half an hour.
Your marinade will incorporate sweet, salty, sour and also a flavor of dots to complement your wild salmon. Oh and before we begin – make sure your ingredients are the best quality you can get. Always choose wild fish over farmed.
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon Horseradish mustard
One clove crushed chopped garlic
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix the ingredients in a bowl. Once your fish is defrosted you will dry it, and place the fish skin side up into the marinade bowl. Use your fingers to massage marinade into the meat of your fish including the sides.
Place your fish in a hot pan skin side down into 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Cover. Let’s steam for 8 to 12 minutes. Check on your fish after eight minutes because depending on the thickness it may need more or less time in the pan. If you wish to caramelize the top, use a fish spatula to flip your fish for a minute.
