1. Preparation and Shopping

For our low carb salmon dish we only need a few working tools, namely

  • Cutting board
  • Chef’s knife
  • Fish knife
  • Pan or oven and ovenproof baking pan
  • Kitchen paper

As our ingredients we buy:

  • Salmon fillets
  • Salt, pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon
  • Courgette
  • Red onion
  • Unsalted cashews

My tip for salmon fillet: When buying salmon, please do not be unnecessarily thrifty. I recommend the purchase of organic salmon. Please buy the fish where there is a lot of turnover or the good quality is known. If you have any doubts, please use frozen organic goods!

I prefer to use fresh salmon fillets as frozen goods.

2. Salmon Preparation quick and easy

My salmon preparation: I rinse the salmon briefly under clear water before roasting. Then I dab the salmon dry with a kitchen roll.

If you have bought a fish fillet with skin, you should remove the skin with a sharp knife. To do this, place the fillet with the skin side down on your kitchen board and cut out the fish fillet close to the skin.

Salmon fillet skinned: Hold the skin firmly under tension, then pull the sharp knife along the skin until the end.

Just before preparation, please do not forget to add salt and pepper. The use of lemon juice is optional. It is not necessary for hygienic reasons like 100 years ago. But I personally like the taste of lemon and therefore add some splashes directly from the fresh lemon.

3. How you can easily prepare Salmon

After my salmon is perfectly prepared, I can consider the cooking method. For this dish there are two variations:

3.1 Frying Salmon in a Pan

One way to cook my fish filet is to fry it in a pan. For this I use a little sunflower oil or olive oil – it works without oil in a coated pan – and fry the salmon for 2-3 minutes on each side.

So this variant is fast. For the vegetables I would use another pan separately.

Roast salmon in a pan, a fluted pan promises an exciting pattern on the fillet.

3.2 Prepare Salmon in the Oven

Another possibility is preparation in the oven. For this I have to preheat my oven at 220° C. I put my fish in the oven mould after 15 minutes of preheating time and reduce the temperature to 80-90° C. The fish can now remain in the oven for about 10 minutes.

This variant takes a little longer (preheating time!), but I can cook the fish in the oven parallel to the vegetables in the pan.

4. Prepare Vegetables

My vegetable preparation: I peel and halve red onions. Then I cut them into strips and fry them.

I wash the zucchini and cut off the ends. Then I quarter them lengthwise. Often I also remove the inside, the seeds. Then I cut the quarters into nice pieces and put them into the pan.

Now I season with pepper and salt and add the cashew nuts.
