Ginger Salmon w/ Lavender honey on bed of Lentils
What can I say? It was easy peasy and you will love it, if you like salmon. Who doesn’t like salmon?
I usually get very fresh salmon from where-ever – and here in the port town of Cassis, it’s full of Sole, Daurad, and other white fish – but salmon, I usually buy from a local market. It’s always and forever GOOD.
Here’s the easy recipe:
Mix ginger orange marmalade with lavender honey – or regular marmalade with honey
Sauté 2 small pieces of salmon in a little olive oil and butter . Apply the marmalade and honey mixture as it’s sautéing on one side.
Turn over in couple minutes, and apply same mixture. Saute couple minutes then turn up to really high heat – throw in some
white wine and scrap the bottom as it bubbles. Turn down. If it seems too raw in center (depending on thickness of your salmon, let it go a few minutes longer, adding more white wine as needed. )
Lentils were prepared day before – with sautéed carrots and shallots and teeny bit of garlic. So all I did was heat them up.
Spread a mound of lentils on plate and place salmon on top.
Voila! Your dinner is done and fantastic.
Our salad was simply sliced cucumber, tomatoes, S & P, herbs d’Provence, lavender oil, or olive oil
