George’s parents were coming to visit this weekend and since they are used to eating lots of pork meat and heavy dishes, I decided to cook them some fish – salmon medallion.


  • salmon medallion (7 pieces)
  • salt, pepper
  • olive oil
  • soy sauce
  • basil, oregano

Kitchen tools

  • oven tray
  • oven
  • pan

How I did it

Step 1

Prep the salmon medallions
First things first - get rid of the fish scales! I usually use the knife to do it, but if you have a scaling tool or a dull knife that would be better - no matter the tool, it should be a quick technique and should be done on a flat surface. But make sure you don't ruin the fish or rip off the salmon skin. Then, gently remove the fish bones (big ones mostly) inside the medallion - i did not remove all the bones inside each medallion so that i do not ruin the meat.

Step 2

Get the medallions ready
Once the salmon medallions are cleaned, season the salmon pieces with salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Then add the pieces into the oven tray
Add few drops over each salmon medallion and 2 drops of soy sauce.

Step 3

Cook the salmon
Having the oven heated at 180 degrees, I introduced the oven tray with the salmon medallions - I left the medallions for 20 minutes, then got the oven tray out and used the pan to give each medallion a golden crust by pan-frying each side for 1-2 minutes.

You can easily complete the salmon medallion dish with some sauteed vegetables or a veggie puree (peas, potato, zucchini).
