Smoked Salmon with Glazed Green Vegetables

I'd never tried lightly smoked salmon before.  This is sold as a fillet of salmon and unlike normal smoked salmon, it is intended to be cooked before eating.

Smokey flavours like smoked bacon are fabulous with vegetables like cabbage, peas and beans so I chose to pair them together in this very simple dish.

Smoked Salmon with Glazed Green Vegetables serves 1 (easily doubled)


120g, 4oz Fillet of lightly smoked salmon (intended for cooking)
Handful of chopped green cabbage
Handful of green beans
Handful of frozen petit pois / small peas
15g, 1/2oz Butter
1 tbsp White wine


Preheat the oven to 200oC, 400F, Gas Mark 6.

Wrap the salmon fillets in non stick baking paper or foil.  Put into the oven and bake for 12 minutes or so or until cooked through but not dry.

While the salmon is cooking, about 6 mins before the time is due, heat the butter in a pan to melt on a medium heat and put in the cabbage and wine, cover and steam for approx 5 minutes or until cooked.

In the meantime, cook the green beans, I cook them for 6 minutes in boiling water if I've bought them in a supermarket or 4 minutes if they're fresh from my garden.  About 2 minutes before the end of the cooking time, add the peas.

When the beans are cooked, drain the beans and peas and add to the cabbage to glaze.

Serve the vegetables and buttery juices with the smoked salmon on top and savour balance of the smoky and sweet flavours.
