Pan-fried salmon and mushrooms

I had an extended day at work and I arrived home later than normal. All I wanted to do was quickly cook a piece of salmon. I’m now able to finish off some work from home.

Ingredients

  • Salmon (middle fillet)
  • Queensland nut oil (a few squirts)
  • Mushrooms (three or four large ones)
  • Spring onions (a bundle of about a dozen stalks, sliced thinly for about 5 cm worth)
  • Butter (a knob, however big a knob is, don’t be rude)
  • Cooking sherry (a dash)
  • Cream (a small splash)
  • Iodised salt (a good pinch)
  • Ground black pepper (about half a teaspoon)
  • Avocado (sliced cheeks)

Instructions

  1. Rub Queensland nut oil over your piece of salmon.
  2. Season your salmon with a pinch of iodised salt rubbed over the surface of the salmon.
  3. Heat up a frypan and squirt in a little Queensland nut oil.
  4. Slice some mushrooms and spring onions and sauté in the frypan until they begin to soften.
  5. Make space in the frypan for the salmon and lay the salmon in the frypan skin side down.
  6. Put a lid on the frypan and set a timer for 5 minutes.
  7. Remove the salmon to a dinner plate to rest.
  8. Remove the lid from the frypan and add a small knob of butter to the mushrooms and spring onions and add a dash of cooking sherry and then stir through with a little cream to make a sauce.
  9. Serve the salmon with the mushroom sauce and some sliced avocado.
