Salmon with Avocado Salsa

This recipe is from Julie Goodwin, the first Australian masterchef ever. I didn't know that, but apparently she has a tv show, on the nine network every Saturday at 5:30 pm.

Here is one of her recipes: Salmon with avocado salsa. It is delicious and can be made in around 20 minutes.

You will need (For 4 people):
1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped
2 small French shallots, sliced
3 medium tomatoes, seeded, chopped
1 small red capsicum, chopped
1 medium ripe avocado, chopped
4 salmon fillets (around 800g)
1 tbsp good quality olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice


Combine the tomato, coriander, shallots, capsicum, avocado and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently to avoid mashing the avocado.

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan. Brush the salmon with the olive oil. Place the skin side down in the pan and press gently to keep the skin in contact with the hot surface of the pan. Season the top of the salmon with a little bit of salt and pepper. After 3 minutes. turn the salmon and cook the other side for a further 2 minutes or until is done as desired. 
Salmon is best served a little rare in the centre. Remove from the pan and cover loosely with foil for 2 minutes before serving.

Plate it with the Avocado salsa.
You can also add steamed new potatoes.

Bon Appetit.
