Crab Crusted Norwegian Salmon, Braised Endive, Crispy Potatoes, Scallion Brown Butter
It has been a while since I made a post. Probably because I haven't gone food shopping since Hurricane Sandy. Now that I have finally found some time on a Sunday, I decided to make myself a nice, protein rich lunch. This take 30 minutes, costs $18 and feeds one.
Crab Crusted Salmon
6oz piece Norwegian Salmon
3oz lump crab claw meat
5 scallions, fine chopped
1/2 stick butter
2 tablespoon panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Add butter to a small sautee pan on medium and scallions. Cook until the butter browns, the add the crab meat, bread crumbs and mustard. Mix well.
Preheat oven to 350. Start a medium saute pan on medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of oil and sear salmon skin side down. Place the pan in the oven, let cook for 7 minutes, then remove.
Top the salmon with the crab meat. Use remaining brown butter to sauce the plate.
Crispy Potatoes and Braised Endive
1 small white potato, sliced into 1/4 rounds
1 small endive, halved
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons of olive oil
Small medium pan on medium heat, add butter and oil. Place potatoes in oil and let cook on each side for about 7 minutes or until golden. Once potatoes are done add in endive, cut side down. Let cook 5 minutes or until carmelized.
Plate it all up and garnish with the remaining scallion tops. Buon Apetito!
