DIRECTIONS

  • Place all the dressing ingredients (except water) in a blender container and process until smooth. Thin with water if necessary, it should be a little thicker than a vinaigrette. Reserve 2 tablespoons for basting fish.
  • In a large bowl combine the broccoli slaw, cucumber, green onion and cilantro; drizzle with dressing and toss to coat; stir in coarsely chopped peanuts, reserving a small amount for garnish, add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste; mix well. Set aside while cooking salmon.
  • In a heavy skillet heat the olive oil unit hot; add salmon fillets, skin side down, baste with reserved dressing. Sear for 3 to 4 minutes; turn the salmon, remove skin and brush with dressing; continue to cook for an additional 3 minutes. Turn and sear until salmon is done and flakes easily when tested with fork, approximately 1 to 2 minutes more.
  • To serve, divide the slaw on 2 serving plates and top with cooked salmon; garnish with reserved peanuts.
