Seared Salmon in Dill Avodaise Sauce

Ok this one is a little trickier than the last few I’ve posted for you but I promise you it’s totally worth it! This dill avodaise sauce beautifully compliments the seared salmon. I like to keep my fish, well fishy, and with this recipe I am able to do that without it omitting a “fishy” scent.

Directions

FOR THE AVODAISE (AVOCADO HOLLANDAISE) SAUCE:

  1. Puree the avocado, lemon juice and salt in a food processor or blender until smooth, adding enough water to give it a thick sauce consistency, before mixing in the dill.

FOR THE PAN SEARED SALMON:

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat, add the salmon, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste, skin side down, reduce to medium heat and cook until the skin is crispy and releases from the pan, about 5 minutes, before flipping and cooking for 2 more minutes.
