Grilled salmon with a wasabi dressing, baked potato wedges, balsamic & fresh oregano marinated beetroots on a bed of watercress

on 10/10/2009
My husband made this lovely meal for me a few days ago. It is a Jamie Oliver recipe from his book: Happy Days with the naked chef!
My husband & I love beetroot combined with grilled salmon.
Lucky me!!
Print me!
Recipe: For 2 persons
Ingredients:
2 salmon fillets, no skin ( we used wild salmon ), each about 230 gr
2 medium beets, skin intact
** For marinating the beets:
1 handful of fresh oregano leaves, no stalks, washed & cleaned
EVOO, a bit ( Extra Virgin Olive Oil )
grinned black pepper
Maldon sea salt
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
** For the wasabi dressing:
juice of 1 lemon
some Maldon sea salt
grinned black pepper
2 tablespoons of wasabi paste from a tube
** For the rest:
cooked cold potatoes, cut into wedges
1 bunch of fresh watercress, well washed & spun dry, the rougher stalks removed
Method:
1. First, cook the beets in hot boiling water. Depending on the sizes of the beets, this will take about 20 to 35 minutes. Drain well & with cooking gloves on & peel the beets & cut into thicker slices & place them in a deep bowl. Now, marinate the beet slices with the balsamic vinegar, the oregano leaves, a bit of the Evoo & some sea salt & some grinds of black pepper for about 15 minutes or until all the rest of your dinner is ready. Keep warm.
2. Take a hot grill pan & season the fish fillets on both sides with sea salt & some fresh grinned black pepper. Smear the fish in with some EVOO on both sides & grill until just al dente, pink in the middle but not raw!
3. In the meantime, bake the potatoes in some EVOO in a non stick pan on all sides until nicely browned.
4. In the same time, make the wasabi dressing. Take a little cup & mix all the ingredients for the dressing together. Taste! It has to taste fab!
5. Now, plate up!! Lay a bed of fresh watercress in the middle of the plate, place on one side 3 pieces of the marinated beetroot. Besides that, the baked potatoes. Lay on the other side the grilled fish. Drizzle a bit of the wasabi dressing over the top of the fish,..but not too much!!
Enjoy this lovely dinner!!!
