Delicately poached salmon fillet tossed gently amongst a spicy and zesty zinguine salad of cherry tomatoes, garlic, chilli, red onion and lemon juice. Its as simple to make as it sounds, and the flavour is just incredible. Fresh, healthy and vibrant, it can be enjoyed served warm or cold.
Zinguine you ask?! Oh, thats my name for beautifully light vegetable pasta made from zucchini.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 1 piece skinless Salmon fillet per person (approx 200 grams each)
- 1 large Zucchini per person, sprialized, mandolin'd or chopped into linguine
- 200 grams Cherry Tomatoes (I used mixed colours)
- 1 long red chilli, finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 small red onion, diced finely
- Juice and zest of 1 lemon
- 1 TBS Chia seeds
- Coconut oil for frying
HOW IT'S DONE
- Get started by heating your coconut oil in a pan on medium heat and preparing a saucepan with boiling salted water.
- Place your chilli, garlic and red onion in the fry pan and saute until golden brown and caramelised.
- Meanwhile place your salmon fillets into the boiling water, remove from the heat and allow them to poach for 5 to 8 minutes depending on how well you like your fish cooked. Once cooked to your liking remove from the water carefully and allow to rest on paper towel.
- Now back to your fry pan, once your chilli, garlic and red onion are beautiful, soft and fragrant, add in your cherry tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes or so until softened and releasing their beautiful juices.
- Now add in the zucchini pasta and stir gently to combine all of the wonderful flavours. Reduce the heat to low, and heat the zucchini pasta through slowly.
- Once you're almost ready to serve, break up pieces of your poached salmon and toss gently through the pasta.
- Serve amongst the plates or on a large platter and give a very generous squeeze of lemon juice all over and sprinkle with the chia seeds for crunch and texture. Season with salt and pepper and you're good to go.
