Sublime Salmon Steaks

Ingredients HIDE SHOW

  • General
  • 2 Salmon Steaks
  • 1 Red fresh chilli
  • Vegetable oil
  • Serve with green vegetables of your choice
  • Samphire Butter
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g Samphire
  • Za’atar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon white sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sumac

For a Middle Eastern twist, mix up a Za’atar blend and add to your salmon steaks

  1. Grind cumin and sesame seeds to a rough blend with a pestle and mortar then add the oregano and sumac
  2. Remove the stem and seeds from the red chilli, cut into thin strips
  3. Heat the vegetable oil and deep fry the red chilli strips until crispy
  4. Heat some butter in a frying pan – not the samphire to start, otherwise it will burn
  5. Place the salmon steaks flesh side down first, turn after 3 minutes and cook for a further 3 minutes
  6. Add the samphire butter, once melted take the frying pan of the heat and baste the salmon steaks
  7. Serve Salmon steaks with samphire butter, sprinkle generously with the Za’atar and garnish with the chillies
  8. Pour yourself a glass of PepperBox Chardonnay and enjoy!
