Salmon pavés with pears

Time required: 30 minutes
Yield : 4 servings Prep Time: 15 minutes
Level : Easy Cook Time: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) maple syrup
  • 15 mL (1 tbsp.) toasted sesame oil
  • 2 pears, peeled, cored and cut into
  • 8 wedges each
  • 4 skinless salmon pavés
  • 15 mL (1 tbsp.) canola oil
  • 2 thinly sliced green onions
  • toasted sesame seeds for garnish
  • salt and pepper

PREPARATION

Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF).

Combine maple syrup and sesame oil in a small bowl. Place Asian pears in a separate bowl and toss with half of the maple mixture. Brush salmon pavés with remaining maple mixture. Reserve.

In a skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat and sear salmon for 1 minute on each side.

Place salmon in an ovenproof dish and bake for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until barely opaque.

In the meantime, in the same skillet, sauté pears and juices over medium-high heat for 4 to 6 minutes, or until pear is cooked and lightly caramelized.

Serve salmon pavés together with pears, garnished with thin slices of green onion and toasted sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve jasmine rice on the side.

VARIATION: Omit sesame oil. Replace maple syrup by honey and pears by green apple slices. Garnish with lemon zest.
