Gordon Ramsay’s New Potato Crab Salad

Gordon Ramsay’s New Potato Crab Salad Recipe

Gordon serves a tasty crispy salmon [1]filet over this New Potato Salad. Give both a try, and enjoy a gourmet meal which doesn’t take a ton of time to cook.

Ingredients:

  • 7-9 Boiled New Potatoes (peeled)
  • Olive Oil
  • 4-5 Green Onions
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Vinaigrette (see note at end of article)
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Parsley
  • 1/2 pound of Crab Meat

Directions:

Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan. Add the boiled, peeled, New Potatoes to the olive oil and cook briefly to lightly heat the potatoes. Remove from heat, and crush the potatoes with a fork. You don’t want to thoroughly mash them at this point, just crush them up a bit.

Chop the green onions, using the entire onion (top and bottom) and add to potatoes. Season the potatoes lightly with salt and pepper, add the crab meat, and mix everything together. Add a healthy amount of vinaigrette dressing, and then the chopped parsley. Mix everything again, and you’re done! Serve with Crispy Salmon [2] for a complete meal, or use your favorite main course to add your own flair.

Note: Gordon Ramsay says during the video that the vinaigrette he uses in all his restaurants consists of olive oil, water, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. He doesn’t specify and ratios, but you can experiment if you’d like to use the same vinaigrette as him.

Gordon Ramsay’s Crispy Salmon

Gordon Ramsay’s Crispy Salmon

Try this delicious looking salmon any time you are up for a quick and easy to prepare seafood meal. Gordon Ramsay serves this salmon over a New Potato Crab Salad[1] mix. Gordon says you don’t need to be afraid of cooking fish, as it’s not rocket science. Score the fish, keep your hands off of it while cooking (NO TOUCHING!), and turn it once. Watch the fish while you’re cooking it, use a fish slide[2], and you should end up with a masterfully prepared salmon.

This recipe is very simple, as you can see by watching the video at the end of this post. I’ll cover the steps it takes to prepare a perfect crispy salmon.

Prep time: Less than 2 minutes. Cook time: 4 1/2 to 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Salmon Filet
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Herbs if you want them (Gordon recommends Thyme, Rosemary, or Basil)

Directions:

Take your filet of salmon, and roll it up, skin side facing out. Place the rolled up salmon filet on a cutting board, and score the skin crosswise about one half inch deep. Keep your cuts close together to get extra crispy salmon skin, and score the entire length of the salmon filet. Scoring the salmon filet prevents it from curling while cooking, ensuring it’s cooked nice and evenly.

Open each score and sprinkle salt into the cut (ouchie!). Gordon suggests you can also add Thyme, Rosemary, or Fresh Basil at this point of the preparation. Glaze the top of the salmon filet with olive oil.

Heat a heavy skillet over med heat, and add olive oil when the pan is hot. Add the salmon, skin side down, as soon as the oil begins to lightly smoke. Keep your fingers on top of the salmon filet for a bit to keep it nice and flat. Season the top of it with salt, and DON’T touch it anymore! Watch the salmon, and turn it, when it has colored 2/3rds of the way up the filet. Once you have flipped the salmon, tilt the pan, allowing all of the remaining olive oil coat the bottom of the salmon for a nice evenly cooked salmon filet. Cook for another minute or so, watching the color. Remove the pan from heat, flip the salmon back to the skin side, and let it rest a minute.

Now you have a wonderful, masterfully prepared filet of salmon. Serve it with Gordon Ramsay’s New Potato Crab Salad[3] for a tasty meal.

Gordon Ramsay starts preparing the fish at 2:06 of the video.

Biography of a Celebrity Chef

Part restaurant empire-builder, part celebrity, and part sublimely talented chef, Gordon Ramsay is a truly global star in the cooking world.

It all could have been all so different though….

His first career break came while playing football for Oxford United where he was spotted by a Glasgow Rangers scout in a F.A. youth club match. After completing trials he was signed by the Scottish champions at the age of 15. Three years later he had given up professional football and gone back to college to complete a course in hotel management.

The show which saw Ramsay attempt to rescue restaurants around the country in need of immediate assistance, was launched simultaneously with Ramsay’s recipe book “Gordon Ramsay Kitchen Heaven.” This was followed by ITV’s “Hell’s Kitchen,” where Ramsay was given two weeks to train celebrities into Michelin-star chefs.

2005 saw a second series of “Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares” followed by the very successful version of “HELL’S KITCHEN USA”. Ramsay also starred in “The F-Word,” a high-octane food show in which the action was set against the backdrop of a full working kitchen.
