Lorraine Pascale’s Blackened Honey & Paprika Salmon with Garlicky Kale & Peas
4 Salmon fillets
1 tbsp paprika
3 tbsp honey
Salt & pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice 1 lemon or 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
5 sprigs thyme
150g frozen peas
150g kale - broken into bite sized pieces
1 clove garlic finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 200c. Put some oil in a frying pan. As this heats up, season the tops of the salmon with salt and pepper and sprinkle with half of the paprika.
Place the salmon fillets upside down in the pan and cook for about 2 minutes or until the salmon is blackening on top.
As this cooks, mix together the other half of the paprika with the honey, salt and pepper, olive oil and lemon juice or balsamic vinegar and set aside.
Once the salmon is blackened, place it on to a baking tray, right side up and brush well with all of the glaze.
Place the baking tray into the oven with half of the thyme scattered over the top. Cook for about 10-12 minutes.
As this cooks, prepare the vegetables. Carefully wipe out the salmon pan, so there are no burnt bits in there. Drizzle some more oil in the pan, add the peas and let them sit over a medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until they blister and go brown. Then throw in the kale, garlic and rest of the thyme.
Keep the pan moving so the garlic doesn't burn. Season with salt and pepper and when the kale has softened slightly (about 2 minutes), set the pan aside.
Once the fish is cooked, serve with the vegetables and spoon over any of the glaze remaining in the baking tray and sprinkle over the pomegranates.
