INGREDIENTS - 4 servings
lb salmon fillet(s), skin-on
black pepper freshly ground
2 Tablespoons olive oil
4 Tablespoons basil oil
1 Tablespoon mustard
Cup fresh basil leaves only, plus a couple of leaves for garnish
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar can substitute by any white wine / white balsamic vinegar
Cut the salmon into 4 or 5 even-size filets and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In a large nonstick pan, over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Place the salmon skin-side up and sear the bottom until golden, about 4 minutes.
Carefully turn the filets and sear the skin side for about 4 minutes longer. Turn the heat to low, cover the pan, and cook until just opaque throughout, about 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.
Meanwhile, in the bowl of a mini-food processor, combine the basil oil, vinegar, mustard, basil leaves, and salt and pepper to taste.
Process until emulsified. Serve the salmon, with the vinaigrette spooned generously on top.
Serve with grilled asparagus or another accompaniment.
