Seared Salmon with Tomato compote and fresh herbs
- Prep Time:
- Cook Time:
- Ready Time:
- Sushi grade salmon
- One large tomato
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Sesame chili oil
- Herb mix
Start by skinning you tomato and removing the seeds, now in a small sauce pan crush the tomato, add a pinch of kosher salt and a good gulp of olive oil. Cook out for about 10-15 min and then start reducing until you have a tomato jam.
Set aside and cool, add another splash of olive oil if it’s not luscious enough.
Now cut the salmon into a long filet and prepare an ice bath. Sear the salmon in a hot pan with canola oil about 45 seconds on each side then plunge into the ice bath to stop the cooking.
To plate slice a few pieces of the salmon and arrange on the plate as I’ve done, now spoons some of the tomato compote on top and finish with the fresh herbs and a few drops of chili sesame oil and that’s it. Easy stuff….
Give this one a try kids!
