Salmon & Rocket Patties

This recipe is so easy to make and so versatile! It can be served as a main meal with various vegetables, rice and lots of homemade sauces. You can be creative and modify the ingredients as you wish, for example using some cooked asparagus instead of rocket or simply a lot of parsley to flavour the dish. You can use some leftovers, if you have potatoes, vegetables or fish that blend well with the other ingredients…. Anyway, have some fun with it!

In this recipe I used frozen salmon fillets ; I defrosted the fish and drained it well before I started with the recipe method. I also used rocket leaves because they are very aromatic and they really go well with salmon. Rocket is usually eaten raw, but is also wonderful cooked! Try it! 😉

Salmon with Pesto, Potatoes And Green Beans

A lovely and easy spring recipe, inspired by our trofie al pesto, a traditional Genoese pasta served with boiled green beans and potatoes, seasoned with plenty of fresh pesto….Really delicious!!!

For this recipe I am using salmon instead of pasta and then I added more vegetables with some lemon juice to lighten up the dish, as salmon is quite an oily fish.
This is definitely a very healthy dish, packed with fibre and wonderful nutrients like vitamin K, C, vitamins B, manganese and omega-3 fatty acids (just to name a few).

Salmon with lime and balsamic vinaigrette

I must admit, I came across the salmon-balsamic vinegar combination totally by accident. I was trying out a new dish that went horribly wrong, when I dropped some balsamic vinegar on a piece of salmon by mistake…Yes, in my kitchen these kind of things can happen! 🙂

DSC_6967

Anyway, I loved it! So I changed the recipe completely and I made a light balsamic vinaigrette as a salmon dressing. I know it is not a new combination, but it was the first time for me.
I love the way in which the balsamic vinegar aroma enhances the natural sweetness of salmon without covering its delicate flavour. The aniseed-tinged wild fennel leaves add a note of distinctive freshness to the recipe. If you can’t find wild fennel, you can use normal fennel leaves, they are probably a little bit easier to get and very similar in taste.
