Pan Seared Salmon Steaks with Leek Vinaigrette

Pamper your family and friends with these crispy pan seared salmon steaks drizzled with a simple homemade leek vinaigrette.
A salmon steak is cut into cross sections from whole fish and includes the bone, whereas a fillet is cut lengthwise from tail to collar and boneless. It is usually bone in while a fillet is boneless. Since a whole steak is cooked on the flesh sides only, so the skin will not become crispy. You can replace with salmon fillets for the recipe.

Leek VinaigretteSalmon Steak
  • 4-5 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp White wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp Fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 Long red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Wholegrain Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp Capers, coarsely chopped
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2-3 / 350 g Leeks, trimmed, washed, white and pale green parts only
  • 2 x 300 g Salmon steaks
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp Garam masala
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, parsley, chilli, mustard and capers and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the leeks to the boiling water and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the leeks for about 8 minutes or until they are tender. Transfer the leeks to a pot of cold water to chill completely. Drain the leeks well and cut in half lengthways. Separate the layers to make leek ribbons. In a large bowl, toss the leek ribbons with half of the dressing.
  3. Season salmon on both sides with salt, pepper and garam masala. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and butter. Add salmon steak and cook until bottom is golden, 5 minutes, then flip and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
  4. Divide the leeks among 2 dinner plates and top with a salmon steak. Spoon the remaining vinaigrette around the plates and garnish with parsley before serving.
