Recipe Ingredients for Salmon with Pea Puree in Lemon Broth

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon shallot
8 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups frozen peas, thawed (about 10 ounces)
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup olive oil
24 oz salmon

Recipe Directions for Salmon with Pea Puree in Lemon Broth

  1. To make the Lemon Broth, warm the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots and saute until tender, about 7 minutes. Add the lemon juice, zest, and broth. Bring to a simmer, and keep warm, covered, over low heat.

  2. To make the Pea Puree, combine the peas, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor and puree. With the machine running, add the olive oil in a steady drizzle. Transfer the pea puree to a small bowl and stir in the Parmesan. Set aside.

  3. To make the Salmon, warm the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over high heat. Season the salmon pieces with salt and pepper. Sear the salmon until a golden crust forms, about 4 to 5 minutes on the first side. Flip the fish and continue cooking until medium-rare, about 2 minutes more depending on the thickness of the fish.

  4. To assemble the dish, add the tablespoon chopped mint to the Lemon Broth and divide between 4 shallow dishes. Place a large spoonful of Pea Puree into the center of each bowl. Place a salmon piece atop each mound of Pea Puree. Serve immediately.
