The sauce can be made up to a day in advance.


  • One 12-ounce fillet salmon, skin on
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 4 olive oil
  • 2 ginger, grated
  • 2 limes, squeezed
  • Pinch of salt


Put shallots and ginger in a sauté pan with olive oil on medium heat and cook for approximately 5 minutes, or until the shallots have started to brown. Add the lime juice and cook for another minute until lime juice is hot. Add the salmon and cook for approximately 7 minutes, turning the salmon over halfway through. 

Plate the salmon with the shallots on top, using excess broth as a sauce.
