I am currently all about low maintenance suppers – delicious dishes, which are easy to prepare that you can leave to cook whilst you polish off a few chores. This salmon with a peanut butter crust can be dressed up or down – serve as with a simple salad for a mid week supper, or dress up with more complicated accompaniments for a mid week dinner party. Either way is delicious, and this dish deserves to be put back into the Fuss Free regular repertoire.
- 2 salmon fillets
- 1 heaped dsp smooth peanut butter
- ½ lemon – juiced
- pinch chilli flakes
- 5 sprigs coriander – finely chopped
- Preheat the oven to GM5 / 190C.
- Place the salmon in an oiled oven proof dish, skin side down.
- Mix the peanut butter, lemon juice, chilli and coriander – it needs some stirring and it will suddenly come together and thicken dramatically, and season with salt and pepper.
- Spread the peanut butter mixture over the salmon fillets and bake for about 20 minutes.
- Serve immediately garnished with lemon and some more coriander.
We were sent the salmon for this review – Norwegian salmon, a beautiful deep salmon pinkish red which fell into large clearly defined flakes once cooked. We thought it had a lovely delicate flavour and fantastic melt in the mouth texture. The fish is farmed sustainably all year round. All Norwegian salmon farming is subject to licence and strict monitoring.
Peanut butter was a sample from Duerrs’ new range – super smooth and slightly sweetened. There is also a crunchy version. Duerrs are a family firm who have been making jams near Manchester since 1881.
Many thanks for Norwegian Seafood and Duerrs for samples. We were not obliged to write a positive review.
