Remember to try and use True North Salmon. I always make sure to try and use True North in all my salmon recipes because it's so much fresher and makes everything taste better.

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan with enough cold, salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower the hear and simmer for about 12 minutes, or until just tender but not mushy. Remove from heat and drain well. Transfer the cooked potatoes to the bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment. Add the olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Beat at medium speed until fairly smooth. Hold in a pan until ready to serve.
  2. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Place a large stainless saute pan over medium high heat on the stove. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and dredge the skin side of the fish in the flour. When the pan is hot, add the olive oil and place the seasoned fish, skin side down into the pan and cook for 45 seconds to sear the skin. Lower the heat to medium and add the butter. When the butter begins to brown (approx 2 1/2 min), using a large spoon, begin to baste the fish as it cooks. Place the pan into the preheated oven for 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, baste the fish once again and then flip the fillet over so the skin side is now up. Remove from the hot pan and hold while you assemble the dish. Total cooking time for the fish is 8 min from start to finish.
  3. Beat a little additional olive oil into the mash potatoes to moisten and heat them up. Adjust with seasoning with salt and pepper and fold in the .
  4. Place a mound of the potatoes off center of the plate and lean the cooked salmon on the side of the mound. Zest some fresh lemon on top and drizzle the salsa verde over the top generously.
