If you're looking for a way to spice up your mid-week dinner, this eye-catching Salmon is one of my favorite sneakily elegant dishes. All you need is some of my Green Queen spice blend, peas, onions, and mint – it's a spring-time sensation that can brighten up your kitchen any season of the year. The squeeze of fresh lemon brings together the pop of the mint and the spice blend into one perfect bite. And remember: don't snooze on getting that crispy skin on the salmon because the texture and flavor will blow you away!
In a medium sauté pan, heat ¼ cup of the olive oil over medium high heat and toss in the pearl onions. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of the black pepper, tossing the onions to coat in the oil and lightly browning.
Reduce the heat to low and cook until soft.
Add the peas and mint, tossing until combined. Remove from heat.
In a large oven-ready sauté pan over high heat, add the remaining ¼ cup of olive oil. Season the salmon filets with the remaining salt and pepper and add to the pan, skin side down, cooking for 2 minutes. Season the flesh side with the green queen spice blend, distributing evenly over all filets
Leaving the filets skin side down, place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes, to achieve a crispy, golden-brown skin. It’s ok if the salmon flesh is still slightly pink in the middle.
Spoon the pea/onion/mint mixture into a shallow bowl or dish and top with the salmon filets.
Squeeze the fresh lemon juice over the fish just before serving.
