Salmon with Apples is a delicate and surprising pairing. This salmon recipe has a flavor all it's own and it is a must for any seafood love.
Things You'll Need:
1 Piece of Smoked Bacon
1/2 Red Apple
1/2 Small Onion
1 3oz. Salmon Fillet
1 T. Butter
Cut the bacon in half and stack the pieces on top of each other. Cut into long ribbons and chop into small squares.
Finely chop the onion. Use equal amounts of onion and bacon.
Thinly slice the red apple, leaving the peel on for added nutrition and color.
Put 1 T. butter into a frying pan and add the bacon. Heat over medium heat. The bacon will have enough fat but the butter adds needed flavor.
After a few minutes, the butter should be browning and there should be some bubbly foam on top.
Add the onions and the apples. Toss thoroughly and let cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add a dash of salt and pepper.
De-glaze the pan by adding a dash of white wine. That will bring the brownings from the pan into the food to flavor it.
The apples should still be crisp.
Place the salmon onto a baking sheet with sides and broil it for 6-7 minutes.
When it has finished it will have a lightly browned coating.
Place the salmon on a plate and serve with the apple mixture.
