Pan-seared wild salmon with a creamy beet puree, sauteed oyster mushrooms and fresh watercress served alongside an OWL Venice broth elixir
- 2 (6 oz) wild salmon filets, skin on
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 red beets, skin removed, sliced ½ in quarters
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
- 4 cups oyster mushrooms
- 1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas
- ⅓ cup vegan yogurt
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 lemon *juiced*
- 1 cup watercress
- Sea salt + pepper *to taste*
- Preheat the oven to 425℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the beets to the baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Roast for 45 minutes.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Season the salmon filets with salt and add to the skillet (skin side down) once it is hot. Sear salmon on both sides for 5-6 minutes until the skin is browned and crispy. Remove from the pan.
- Add in one more tablespoon of olive oil to the same skillet and then add in your oyster mushrooms. Sauté until browned for about 6-8 minutes.
- Remove the beets from the oven and add them to a food processor with the chickpeas, yogurt, ½ lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt and pepper. Puree until smooth and creamy.
- Add your beet puree to a plate and place the seared salmon on top with a side of mushrooms. Add a handful of fresh watercress on top of the salmon with a squeeze of lemon. Serve your meal alongside the beef broth elixir.
