Olive Oil-Poached Salmon Bellies 
with Summery Peach-Tomato Salsa

I thought about sweets, including a variation on my Peaches and Cream Tart, Mini Peach Galettes, or Peach Cobbler. But I wanted to go savory and had some salmon bellies from our CSF (community-supported fishery) Real Good Fish. And because I didn't want to mess - too much - with a good thing, I just did a slight variation of my Olive Oil-Poached Salmon Bellies with Cantaloupe-Preserved Lemon Salsa.

Ingredients serves 4

Salmon
  • 1 pound salmon bellies
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 to 3 sprigs fresh oregano
  • 2 to 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • olive oil

Salsa
  • 1 C diced ripe peaches
  • 1 C diced heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 T diced preserved lemon rind (one of my recipes here)
  • 1 T capers
  • 1 t fresh thyme leaves
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • olive oil

Procedure
Salsa
Place the peaches, tomatoes, lemon rind, capers, and fresh thyme together in a medium mixing bowl. Add in a glug or two of olive oil and stir to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper, as needed. Set aside.

Salmon
Select a large enough pot that the salmon bellies can sit flat without touching each other. I use my Le Creuset braiser.

Pour olive oil into the pot so that it’s about ½” deep. Add garlic, oregano, and thyme. Bring the oil to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. 

Lower the salmon bellies – skin-side down – into the warm oil. Poach for 10 to 12 minutes. Flip the bellies and poach for another 5 to 6 minutes. If using immediately, serve warm. If using later, let salmon cool and refrigerate.


To Serve
Place salmon bellies on individual serving plates and spoon the salsa over the top. Serve immediately.

  1. I love fruit salsa on fish! It adds so much moisture. Sounds delicious.

  2. The sweet fruit and salty capers must be amazing with the salmon. And I am a huge fan of preserved lemons so it is always fun for me to find another recipe that uses them.

    And unrelated to this particular recipe, I have to laugh at your tab for "beyond pancit and lumpia". What else is there? Adobo, cassava bibingka, sinigang, okay lots of things... except for the duck egg embryo thing... just can't bring myself to appreciate that one. :)

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
