Salmon with peas

Serves 4 – doubling quantities in the recipe

  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4 slices of jamon serrano or prosciutto cut into strips
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 3.5 cups fresh peas
  • salt
  • 12 to 16 romaine leaves
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets – 150-180gms each
  • half a lemon

Saute the onion and ham in the oil in a large skillet over low heat, stirring occasionally until the onion is soft. Add 2 tablespoons of butter and the peas, stir and season with salt. Cover with the lettuce leaves, put on a tight fitting lid so that the peas cook in the steam created by the lettuce and cook over a low heat for 15 mins.

LIft up a few of the lettuce leaves and put in the salmon fillets. Season with salt and add 0.5 tablespoon of butter and cook over low heat for 6-10mins depending on the thickness of the salmon. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve with the lettuce.
