How to prepare this simple and tasty dish with all the Mediterranean fragrances that will make it unique
If you are looking for a simple appetizer to prepare or a second light dish, marinated salmon could be the answer to your questions. Easy to prepare and suitable for all tastes, it can be prepared with fresh salmon and chilled or smoked according to taste. But unlike the usual exotic versions, in this case our inspiration for marinated salmon will be a 100% Mediterranean recipe. Here's how to prepare it!
The base of our liquid to marinate the almone will be composed of extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, lemon peel, fresh chilli pepper and herbs to taste as thyme, marjoram, mint, sage and rosemary. Attention to these last three that have an intense taste that could cover the other flavors. If you want to add an aromatic touch to your preparation, add a teaspoon of it apple vinegar.
The ideal cut to make this dish is a very thin carpaccio type fillet, but nothing prevents you from experimenting with even more substantial alternatives. The marinated samone is indeed very good even if cut into cubes of 1.5 cm per side which can even drop to 0.5 if you like a more “cooked” effect.
To get a good marinated salmon, let the fish rest in the liquid for about 40 minutes in the fridge. You will then pull it out at least a quarter of an hour before serving it so that it will cool down.
Let's serve it in the Mediterranean
As we said at the beginning, this recipe becomes even more interesting if served with tasty Mediterranean ingredients such as capers, Tropea onion cut into thin slices, strips of raw peppers and cherry tomatoes to taste. The effect will be similar to that of the condiment used for the Catalan lobster. If you are looking for something very simple, enrich your salmon with capers and peppercorns.
