Saumon au Citron Confit (Preserved Lemon Salmon Recipe) Recipe

While I was in France, Maman, Papa, baby Aria and I enjoyed a lot of seafood. Maman's favorite fish is salmon and this recipe was an ultra easy one to cook. Citron confit is widely available in Paris but you can also easily make your own. I prepared the salmon marinade with preserved lemons, coriander, cumin and ginger. You could serve it on a bed of couscous topped with pine nuts, but we opted for some spinach instead. Simply sauté fresh spinach in olive oil, add a dollop of crème fraîche, the juice of an orange, cayenne pepper and a pinch of fleur de sel. All these North African flavors tasted phenomenal!

I'm finally back to the US and it feels so good to be home. Baby Aria is ecstatic being kissed and cuddled constantly by everyone. Thank you so much for being so patient and for all your supportive messages!

Pan-Seared Salmon with Lemon Recipe

Pan-Seared Salmon with Lemon

04.13.11 by Jackie

Fish, in general, is an excellent light meal idea. Salmon in particular, if prepared properly, can be very moist and flavorful. First, make sure to ask your fishmonger to clean the fish and its skin. The next important issue is the marinade. Finally, don't overcook the filet and a delicious dinner will be in your future.

For this recipe I used lemons as a tenderizer and flavoring. I pan-fried and created a crust around the salmon steak and finish baking it in the oven on a bed of lemon slices. I served it with pineapple salsa (mango salsa would work too).

Poached Salmon Mousseline Recipe

Poached Salmon Mousseline

Today I made a salmon mousse flavored with horseradish, lemon zest and herbs. Whisked egg whites provide structural integrity to the mousse, and cream gives it an airy, ethereal texture. I poached the salmon mousseline in individual molds to keep the salmon moist and tender.

This is a great main course for an elegant Christmas meal. Come back tomorrow to see how I would serve this dish!
