Seared Salmon With Warm Lentil Ragout And Wilted Pea Shoots

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 (6 to 8-ounce) center cut salmon fillets, with skin
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh pea shoots
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Warm Lentil Ragout


  • Season the salmon lightly with salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the salmon, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and transfer the salmon to a platter.
  • In a clean large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the pea shoots and cook, stirring, until slightly wilted but still bright green, about 30 seconds. Season lightly with salt and remove from the heat.
  • To serve, spoon the lentil ragout onto 4 large plates. Arrange the salmon and pea shoots on top and serve.
  • Wine Pairing: Marques De Caceres Rioja Crianza, Spain, most current vintage available
