Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put shallot or onion in a small saucepan with vinegar and boil gently until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add butter in one piece and remove from heat. Swirl around saucepan until butter has melted. For best results, do not stir.
  2. Wipe salmon and season with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side up, on a lightly greased baking tray or grill pan and cook under a preheated grill until the skin is crispy - about 10 minutes. The sides of the fish should be pale pink not rosy pink.
  3. Pour a little sauce on a plate and place a salmon steak, skin side up, in the center and serve with boiled new potatoes and peas.
  4. Garnish with chives.
