Note: My husband called this salmon recipe a “winner,” 5 out of 5 stars, one of my best salmon recipes. You can tell he loved it!
–salmon (size of 4 decks of cards, 1 pound)
–mint (fresh if possible)
–peanuts (one-third cup, minced in a food processor)
–parsley (fresh, 1 handful, chopped)
–salt and pepper
1 – Place the salmon in a covered baking dish with a little water (for steaming). Season with salt, pepper, and chopped mint.
2 – In a food processor, pulse one-third cup of peanuts until finely minced. Spread the minced peanuts atop the salmon.
3 – With a very sharp knife, slice a fresh lemon. Place the slices atop the salmon. Finish with 1 handful of chopped, fresh parsley, and a few drops of olive oil.
4 – Microwave on high for 8 minutes.
5 – Serve the salmon hot.
