Wild Salmon on a Caramelized Apples Bed.

Most of the times, I enjoy cooking a lot. I’m really lucky because I have to cook every single day of the year! Well, maybe not every single day… sometimes, we go to restaurants… but, most of the times, these hands do all the work! Hey, I’m not complaining at all, I like it :D, but there’s some days, just a few, that my kitchen gives me some kind of allergy and I just want to avoid anything cooking related.
If I find a recipe like this one, then my love for cooking comes right back immediately!!! And the kitchen allergy dissappears. This dish is done in no time and it’s so satisfactory.

These days I also feel bad because everytime I look to my reader… there’s more and more posts to visit and I cannot cope with it!!!! See? I’m shoping and buying all the family Christmas presents, I’m also testing some new recipes to try during the holidays, I’m organizing the menus, the fridge, the freezer… I am geting overloaded, I just have to stop, otherwise I get sooooo stressed!

So, I’m sorry, there’s many blogs I have to visit, many posts to comment… but I cannot be everywhere :(. I’ll just do my best and hope you don’t get angry with me.

Ingredients for 4 servings: 4 thick fresh salmon slices, 2 golden apples, 2 table spoons of butter, 1 lemon, 1 table spoon of honey, some red pepper balls, olive oil, parsley, salt and pepper.

  • Clean and wash the salmon thick slices. Reserve.
  • Peel the apples and take their hearts away. Cut them horizontaly (about 2 cm) and pour some lemon juice over them to avoid oxydation.
  • Heat a sauce pan and add the butter. Golden the apple slices during 2 minutes each side. Reserve.
  • In the same sauce pan, add the honey, stir add salt and black ground pepper. Stir and add on top of the apples.
  • In another sauce pan, fry the salmon slices in some olive oil (just 4 table spoons). Have for 2 minutes each side, making sure the inner part remains juicy and tender. Sprinkle some salt and pepper.
  • Present the dish with the apples, the salmon on top and some red pepper balls and parsley to decorate. Eat hot.

Buen provecho! Cheers!

What a different dish! Love how crisp and tasty that salmon looks on top and the apples I am sure complemented this hearty fish well.
I don’t think anyone expects you to visit each of their posts every single time they publish one :) A fe where, a few there … this is supposed to be fun, right, not a chore!

I love salmon it has such a rich taste and flesh.

What a coincidence my mother made some yesterday but I forgot to take pictures and blog.

It was delicious and simple she rubbed the salmon filets with lots of garlic mashed to a paste, salt, and pepper, pan-fried in a pan with a mixture of olive oil and butter, afterwards she serves it with freshly squeezed lime juice.

In the leftover oil she get’s crusty bread and lightly fried it with garlic mmm…..

Mmmm Nathan, your mom’s salmon sounds fantastic!!! and that bread fried on the leftover oil… awesome!!!

Hola Psychgrad! I know… they look like pineapples, but they are apples! I bet it’s great too with pineapples ;D

This is a very busy time of the year Nuria so never worry about not visiting. We know and love that you are there and posting delicious recipes like this one.

(Sniff-sniff)…why are you not commenting on my blog? I am saddened, crushed and I must rethink our friendship………joking! lol

It’s a busy time, chica…do what you have to do…cook lovely salmon, entertain, shop, spend time with family and slow down…enjoy life!

Hi Nuria,
The red peppercorns make this so festive-looking…great for Christmas time! Or an elegant dinner any time of the year. Very nice!

No, this is not acceptable. My boyfriend “Big Bear” will ONLY eat Copper River Salmon.

And let me tell you, even though he weighs over 400 pounds, and has lost most of his teeth, he is VERY particular about his salmon.

Louise wyers,

I cook almost every day of the year too and I also love it! Don’t feel bad for having a life outside blogging. We gotta go out sometime and buy presents, right? :-p Amazing looking dish, my friend. You have given me an idea for dinner tomorrow night :)

12/12/2008 · 8:51 h by Núria

Thanks darling Valli♥.

Gracias chico! However, I like to think that you get a little sad when I don’t visit your blog ;D

Hola Joan! That was the intention of the dish… make it a little festive :D

Welcome to Spanish Recipes Louise! Ha, ha… tell your big friend, that he has never tasted anything like mine… I bet! ;D

Hola querido Ben! Thank you chico! I’m happy to be your cooking muse :D

Hi Nuria, find it hard to keep up visiting all my favorite blogs too. What is your way of doing it? Your salmon looks great and it’s very good idea to come up something light in this festive season !

12/12/2008 · 17:02 h by Núria

Hola Janet! My way to do it is through blogger reader (blogs I follow), but whenever I have other things to do and skip some posts, the row is sooooo long!!!!
Anyways, all of us do what we can, don’t we?

12/13/2008 · 15:21 h by We Are Never Full

you feel bad about not commenting – that’s an added stress in your life that you don’t need. seriously, don’t worry about it. people come to your blog b/c they want to read it and look at your recipes, not b/c they are fishing for your to comment on their blog. and if they feel that way, then they aren’t worthy of your blog-friendship, right?

i agree w/ you about how you can be allergic to the kitchen sometimes. just like anything, sometimes we all just need a break.

12/13/2008 · 19:08 h by Núria

Ok Amy! I’ll try to follow your advise here :D

12/16/2008 · 16:48 h by Katie B.

I made this for dinner last night and it was just wonderful!!! So glad I found it!

12/16/2008 · 19:33 h by Núria

Hola Katie B.! Welcome to Spanish Recipes :D. YOu did? Hey, that’s super!!!! I’m so glad you enjoyed the dish :D

Thank you! I’ll visit your blog to see what’s cookin’ in your kitchen.
