This recipe is gluten free and can be made diary free if you replace the milk with a dairy-free alternative.
Ingredients: Serves 2
○ 2 Salmon with Chili, Lime and Ginger fillets
○ 1 cup of buckwheat flour
○ 1 cup of semi-skimmed milk (or dairy free alternative such as almond milk)
○ 2 eggs
○ 3 tbsp of chopped chives
○ 1 lemon
○ Tsp of butter
○ Salt and pepper, to season
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Rub a little oil over your salmon fillets, wrap in foil and place on a baking tray. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until mouth-wateringly flaky.
2. Combine the eggs, milk and salt & pepper in a bowl, then whisk. Begin to sift in the flour, stirring as you add. Sprinkle chives into the mixture.
3. Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat, so it covers all the pan. Pour some of the mixture into the pan, enough to make a small to medium sized pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the mixture starts to bubble. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until pancake is golden brown. Set aside. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
4. Drop your asparagus into slightly salted boiling water, cover and cook for 3-5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
5. Remove salmon from oven and season with salt & pepper. Stack the pancakes and the asparagus, placing the salmon fillet on top. Sprinkle extra chives and a squeeze of lemon over the dish. Finish with a delicious drizzle of the Chili, Lime and Ginger Dressing.
