A quick walk from our apartment we come to the port in Buceo, Montevideo. At the port there are several fishmongers, a small fruit and vegetable stand, a trinket shop as well as El Italian Restaurant. Our first visit I saw the most beautiful salmon filet that looked fresh and I HAD TO HAVE IT.
The small fruit and veggie stand had some very nice green beans so that is what I bought to have with the salmon.
Most things here are sold by the kilo and that was not a problem with me because I was open for fresh fish for a few days in a row.
For lunch that day I made it with this outrageous Asian sauce. It had soy sauce, fresh grated ginger, garlic, a few slices of hot red pepper for a nice punch, honey (sorry I miss Eva Honey, Eva is our neighbor in San Clemente and that is the most flavorful honey I have ever had) a grind of salt and a bit of pepper. Heat that in a small sauce pan and top your sautéed salmon with it. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY
So we had two nice pieces for our next lunch, yes I can eat fish every day of the week.
I served the same sauce but a bit more ja ja as I love the sauce as much as the fish. And I served it with a fresh salad and even added peach slices to the salad and made a yogurt dressing with a bit of honey and herbs and spice.
Well the salmon was a huge success and we will have it again very soon. One problem we really need to try more of the local fish as well. So we will see what I pick next.
PS I know this is farm raised in Chile. I know all about the antibiotics but honestly we just had to have it. We will not be eating it every day so once in awhile I will take the plunge and have salmon….
