Anise-Cilantro Salmon Sauté

Serves 4

4 (6 oz) wild salmon fillets

1/4 bunch parsley leaves
3 cloves garlic
Zest of 1 orange
1/4 bunch cilantro leaves
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon anise-flavored liqueur*

Potato mash
8 potatoes, washed but unpeeled
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
6 oz cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil

  • Prepare the marinade and leave the salmon in it for one hour, turning occasionally.

  • Boil the potatoes, then mash with the yogurt, garlic, oil, and butter.

  • Remove the salmon fillets from the marinade and sauté in a lightly oiled pan until just done.

  • Serve the fish on or next to the potatoes, reheat the marinade and pour over.

*Examples include ouzo, sambuca, Galliano, anisette (Marie Brizard), and pastis (Pernod). You can substitute 1/2 teaspoon aniseed (finely ground) or 1/2 teaspoon anise extract.
