gluten free labeldiabetic recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 salmon fillets (or steaks)
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, thinly sliced
  • 6 parsley sprigs
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 6 whole peppercorns
  • salt to your taste

Vinaigrette:

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup light flavored oil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Method

Step 1

Place the salmon in a large, shallow pan and add enough cold water to come 3/4 of the way up the salmon at its thickest part.

Step 2

Add white vinegar, onions, carrots, parsley, thyme, cloves salt and peppercorns. Bring to a boil.

Step 3

Lower heat and simmer gently for 3 minutes (slightly longer if you are using very thick steaks or fillets).

Step 4

Remove the salmon from the poaching liquid with a slotted spoon and drain. Set aside.

Step 5

Place all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette, except the oils, in a food processor (a blender will do) and pulse until well combined.

Step 6

With the machine running, add the oils in a thin stream until they are well mixed. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 7

Serve the salmon cooled or cold with the basil vinaigrette drizzled over it.
