Ingredients and Method


  • 2 salmon fillets, skin on (about 6 oz each)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup green peas (fresh or frozen, thawed)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons water, for blending
  • 1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed


  1. In a small saucepan, bring a cup of water to a boil. Add the peas and cook for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process
  2. In a food processor add the peas, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, basil leaves, and a pinch of salt and pepper. While blending, gradually add 1-2 tablespoons of water until you reach a smooth, creamy consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed. Set aside.
  3. Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  4. In a non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the salmon fillets, skin-side down, and sear for about 4-5 minutes until the skin is crisp. Flip the fillets and cook for another 3-4 minutes on the other side, or until desired doneness.
  5. In a pot with a steamer basket, bring about an inch of water to a boil. Place the asparagus in the basket, cover, and steam for 3-5 minutes until tender but still slightly crisp. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. To Serve: Spread the pea purée into the serving plates. Place the asparagus and salmon on top. Garnish with basil leaves. Enjoy!
