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.

Ingredients

  • 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

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).

One moist beef + dill sauce, please!

Beef is a meat supposed to melt in your mouth. And to double the flavor and “moistness” I did it with a twist. 😉
