Seared salmon with sautéed white beans and bacon, basil sauce.

Submitted to MasterChef by frenchcuisse


Basil sauce
- A handful of basil blended with vegetable oil. Season with salt & pepper.

White beans / bacon - Cook the white beans (I followed the instructions on the bag) then reserve. As soon as the salmon is almost cooked, (depending on how you like it) in a pan, cook the sliced bacon, add the white beans, chopped chives, and season with salt & pepper. Do not sauté for too long, plate the beans as soon as possible to prevent it from getting too oily.

Salmon
- Score the skin, season with salt and pepper on both sides and sear skin side first on high heat then slowly reduce the heat to mid-high to prevent the salmon from burning. Once the skin is crispy, flip it, cook the flesh side for a minute or so until brown, then back on it’s skin. Add a good tablespoon of unsalted butter to the pan, a few sprigs of thyme, oregano, and a few cloves of garlic. Start basting the fish for a good 10 - 15 seconds. Finish cooking to your liking.

Basket - Salmon, bacon, yogurt, mint, basil, white rice, white beans, balsamic vinegar.
