Saturday is fish day. On every Saturday, in the city I live in we have a fresh produce market. I love going to the market on Saturday mornings to buy fresh fish. I know it sounds funny, but I like a lot the smell of fresh fish, not to talk about the visual aspect – all the fishes aligned on big metal tables, so shinny and ready to be fried, grilled, baked.. you name it.
Today, I followed every Saturday’s ritual, I went to buy some fish and the first thing that draw my attention was some pink salmon fillet. Since I couldn’t waste that lovely pink flesh on only one dish I prepared it in three different way.
So here is my salmon three-way:
1. Smoked salmon with parmesan – pistachio crisps.
2. Salmon teriyaki. I just cooked the salmon in a marinade of soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar and a wee bit of corn starch.
3. Salmon with pepper crust. Pan fried salmon with a crust of pepper in a bit of oil.
And since I always associate salmon with Norway – Vær så god!
