Crispy Skin Salmon with Vegetables and Pesto

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 4 fillets farm raised salmon
  2. 12 new potatoes
  3. 2 bundles sprouting broccoli
  4. 4 handfuls green beans
  5. 1 clove garlic
  6. ½ cup raw pine nuts
  7. 1 big bundle basil leaves
  8. Juice of ½ lemon
  9. olive oil
  10. 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  11. salt and pepper to taste

METHOD:

  • Boil the baby potatoes in a large pot of water for 15 minutes. Add the French beans and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for another minute, drain and leave in the pot.
  • In a large nonstick pan, lay the salmon fillets skin side up in the cold pan and place over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Lower the heat to medium, turn over onto the skin side, and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
  • In a mortar, smash the garlic and salt with the pestle, add the nuts and grind to a paste. Now add the basil, grind again, and finally add the lemon juice, oil, and parmesan. Grind to a grainy paste.
  • Smash the potatoes so it opens up to all the yummy pesto, toss the pesto with the vegetables.
  • Plate it by dividing the vegetables into four servings, place one salmon fillet on each plate. Enjoy a fast and healthy family meal.
