This fertility boosting recipe is not only delicious and simple to make and it is packed with Omega-3 oils and antioxidants.
Gremolata is an Italian mixture of parsley, lemon zest and garlic. It is a wonderful punchy flavouring for fish dishes, quick to prepare and full of antioxidants. This works perfectly with oily fish such as salmon but is equally delicious drizzled over vegetables.
Storage: Prepare the gremolata in advance and store in the fridge until required. Leftover salmon can be kept in the fridge for one or two days.
• Large handful of fresh flat leaved parsley, finely chopped
• Juice and grated zest of 1 lemon
• 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
• 3 tbsp olive oil
• 4 salmon fillets, with skin
• 8 red and yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
1. Mix together the parsley, lemon juice and zest, garlic and 2 tbsp of oil in a bowl.
2. Pour a little oil over the salmon fillets and season with black pepper. Heat a frying pan until hot. Sear the salmon, skin–side down for 2-3 minutes until golden. Turn over and cook for a further 4-5 minutes until cooked through.
3. Place the tomatoes in a bowl and coat with a little of the gremolata. Spoon on to a serving plate and top with the salmon. Drizzle the remaining gremolata over the salmon.
