Salmon Surfing Crushed Potatos

Salmon surfing crushed potatos is quite a cheesy title isn't it? If anyone can think of a better short title let me know. It was a last minute decision to have salmon for dinner tonight. There was an inspiration to make a crushed potato side dish after seeing the leftover peppers and tomatos lying in the fridge. I thought that would be a great pairing with some salmon. Afterall I had to head over to Sainsbury to get some groceries. Well, I decided to take it easy today after the OSLER in the morning which went fine :) .

Olive oil
Balsamic Vinegar

Marinate the salmon pieces in olive oil and garlic and salt for about half an hour. Add in some herbs for added taste. Pan fry the salmon on one side and then flip over when its slightly charred (not slightly browned) Repeat on the other side. It is done when the meat starts to firm up. Normally takes about 3mins per side for a thin piece of salmon. Don't worry about the meat becoming too dry as salmon is quite resistant to dehydration.

For the potatos, boil them first till they are semi soft. Crush them. Fry the peppers, tomatos and some shallots in olive oil, add in the potatos and fry till its nicely browned. Season liberally with salt. If not it won't taste nice.

Lastly, make a balsamic lemon and olive oil sauce to go with the fish. I used a 1:1:1 ratio for making up the sauce.
