Salmon in seafood sauce

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Recipe Of The Week -

AS WE come to the close of the sam­phire grow­ing pe­riod I thought I would share this nu­tri­ent-rich recipe.

Salmon is one of our healthy su­per foods, seafood is abun­dant in zinc, plus sam­phire and toma­toes are packed with es­sen­tial vi­ta­mins and min­er­als.

In­gre­di­ents: 4 salmon fil­lets Olive oil 1 gar­lic clove, chopped or crushed

2 hand­fuls of sam­phire – sodium rich, so salt not nec­es­sary for this recipe 125ml white wine 1 fish stock cap­sule/cube 200g cherry toma­toes, halved

150g lan­goustines or king prawns shelled and de-veined

100g cala­mari (squid tubes) sliced into rings

200g fresh clams (or­der day be­fore from lo­cal fish­mon­ger) 200g mus­sels in their shell 300ml crème fraiche 1 le­mon, cut into small wedges

Method: Scrub and de-beard the mus­sels and rinse the clams, steam both in a cov­ered pan with the white wine and gar­lic.

When the shells open, re­move from the pan with a slot­ted spoon. Add the fish stock cube/cap­sule to the hot liquor and set aside.

In the same pan sauté the cala­mari in a ta­ble­spoon of olive oil for three min­utes.

Add the salmon and fish liquor from the shell­fish and sim­mer for a fur­ther 5 min­utes turn­ing con­tin­u­ously.

Fi­nally, add the cherry toma­toes, prawns, shell­fish, spinach and crème fraiche.

Sim­mer gen­tly for five min­utes and serve im­me­di­ately with the le­mon wedges.

En­joy!

Salmon, sam­phire and toma­toes are anti-in­flam­ma­tory and loaded with nu­tri­ents and an­tiox­i­dants.

Salmon is also rich in es­sen­tial omega 3 fatty acids and high in pro­tein, and an ex­cel­lent source of es­sen­tial vi­ta­mins and min­er­als, in par­tic­u­lar; B vi­ta­mins, potas­sium, se­le­nium.

Al­though rel­a­tively high in salt, sam­phire is also rich in fi­bre, vi­ta­mins A, B and C, cal­cium, mag­ne­sium, potas­sium.

Toma­toes are a ma­jor di­etary source of the an­tiox­i­dant ly­copene and con­tain sev­eral vi­ta­mins and min­er­als.
