Here I would like to show you my Roast Salmon Recipe.
Today we serve the fried fish fillet on mashed potatoes and cabbage.
I love creative cooking! I experiment with passion in my kitchen and always invent new delicious culinary experiences.
I prefer to use easily available ingredients…Although it should be quick, you can conjure up great dishes with a new idea.
This is also possible if the ingredients seem “ordinary” to you at first.
Here is the current example: Not only the potato is suitable for a fine puree, but also cauliflower. Absolutely try it out…Have fun cooking and good luck!

1. How to Roast Salmon Fillet
He looks so beautiful: Our finished salmon served on the plate. How do you get such a great result?
A tender salmon fillet you should fry outside slightly crispy but inside juicy in a hot pan.
If your fish is still slightly glassy on the inside, you have reached restaurant quality.
If you don’t like it glassy, leave the fish in the pan for about 2 minutes longer.
Fish is not meat – the cooking times in the pan are short. That’s why you never leave the stove when roasting fish, otherwise dry fish on the plate is in danger!Chef Thomas Sixt about frying fish

Simple guide for frying salmon fillet.
|2||tbsp||oliv oil (or rape seed oil)|

Mashed Potatoes with Cauliflower and Saffron
|300||g||floury potatoes (if necessary also mainly waxy potatoes are used)|
Peel 300g potatoes and rinse briefly under running water.
Cut the potatoes into small pieces and cook in salted water for 15-20 minutes.
Clean and wash the cauliflower and cut the florets roughly from the stalk.
Cook the cauliflower in salted water for 8-10 minutes, depending on the size of the florets.
Put half of the cauliflower florets in a bowl or pot with the soft boiled potatoes.
Keep the rest of the cauliflower florets warm.
Add 100 ml cream, 2 tablespoons butter, grated nutmeg, saffron threads and salt.
Mix the mashed potatoes with a mixer.
Prepare fish fillet
Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry.
Season each fish with a pinch of salt and some freshly ground pepper (black or white).
For skinning salmon fillet there is an extra cooking school with step by step instructions.
Heat rapeseed oil in the pan.
Place the salmon fillets in the pan and reduce the temperature slightly.
Add 1 tablespoon clarified butter. Depending on the thickness of the fish fillets, fry the salmon hot on each side for approx. 4 minutes.
Fry 2 tbsp. clarified butter or butter parallel to the salmon in a pan and fry 4 tbsp. breadcrumbs.
Spread the mashed potatoes/cauliflower on warm plates and drape the salmon on top.
Add the remaining cauliflower florets to the plate and add the roasted breadcrumbs.

4.1 Potato and Cabbage Puree with Saffron
We don’t just know about the various possibilities of puree preparation from the expansion of the media landscape with its numerous cooking and travel programmes.
Further puree possibilities:
- Mashed potatoes with leek
- Mashed potatoes with olives
- Mashed potatoes with dried tomatoes
- Mashed potatoes with pumpkin
- Mashed potatoes with herbs
- Mashed potatoes with parsnips
Make your mashed potato dream come true according to your taste. Always see if it harmonizes well with salmon!
4.2 Cauliflower Florets with Breadcrumbs and Butter
Your fish fillet is grateful, because it harmonizes with many vegetables.
It is important that the fine aroma of the fish is not “killed” in the vegetable side dishes.
I would therefore always recommend a vegetable with a light taste, such as
of course, cauliflower.
I will show you how to prepare cauliflower in the recipe section below.
I used white cauliflower. Just as suitable is the green Romanesco or a purple cauliflower.
