Pan seared Salmon and spinach with an avocado remoulade

This recipe inspiration goes to Elise at http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/pan_seared_salmon_with_avocado_remoulade/. I just loved the idea of the remoulade and gosh it was creamy and absolutely a knock out sauce. Plus, this dish healthy and loaded with all the good kind of fats and proteins. And oodles of flavor. (Yes, I used oodles. That’s how much I loved this dish. Loove)

Here is the recipe  for the remoulade taken from Elise below. As for the salmon, I seared it skin side down on the pan for 2-3 minutes until crispy. Then I flipped the salmon and put it in the oven for 11-12 minutes at 400F. Cooked perfect flaky and a little under. On the side, I sautéed some garlic and spinach until the leaves wilted (salt and pepper to taste) and poached an egg. Why poached egg? Umm why not poached egg? Hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Thanks Elise for a great sauce recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2 large avocados, roughly cut
  • 3 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice (I squeezed one fresh lemon)
  • 3-4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced shallots
  • 1 Tbsp minced parsley (fresh, please go with fresh on this one)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard or to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to?

Add the avocado and lemon/lime juice and blend until smooth. Continue by adding olive oil and pulsing until desired consistency. Add the shallots, parsley, dijon mustard and blend until uniform. Pause and taste. Now add the salt and pepper and get it to perfection.
