Salmon in Lemony Lemon Sauce
Serves 4

1-3/4 lbs. (800 gram) salmon fillet
1 teaspoon olive oil
Salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper

Directions for Salmon Fillets:
Rinse salmon in cold water, drain and pat dry with a paper towel.
Cut salmon fillet into serving sizes.
Heat olive oil in a pan. Season fish with salt and pepper before placing pieces into the pan.

Sauté lightly on each side over medium heat. Turn fish once only, as over-handling may cause it to fall apart. Cover with a lid.

1 pound savoy cabbage
2 carrots
1 leek
1 cube fish or chicken bouillon
1/4 cup water to dissolve bouillon cube
Salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper

Preparing Vegetables:
Wash and rinse vegetables. Cut into strips. Heat oil. Sauté carrots and leek first. Add savoy cabbage strips. Add a dash of bouillon liquid. Cover with lid for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Drain vegetables before serving.

Lemony Lemon Sauce:
1/2 stick butter (60 gram)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
2/3 cup (1.5 deciliter) half and half or
heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon chopped dill
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Freshly ground white pepper
Retain 1/2 of the lemon zest and
Parsley for garnish.

Preparing Lemony Lemon Sauce:
Bring cream, butter, and lemon juice to a simmer while stirring in the remainder of the ingredients.

Season with salt and freshly ground pepper as needed.

Serving Suggestion:
Transfer vegetables onto the serving plate. Place salmon around the vegetables.

Spoon the Lemon Sauce over the salmon. Garnish with lemon zest and freshly chopped parsley. Steamed redskins will go well with Salmon in Lemony Lemon Sauce.

I suggest redskins since they are lower in carbohydrates than white potatoes and have a great flavor - you can even eat the skins. © Copyright 2020
