Salmon Fillet with Vegetable Topping
Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F) convection.
Rinse the salmon and pat dry. Peel, halve and cut the onion into thin strips. Rinse, trim and cut the leeks into 5-6 cm (approximately 2- 2 1/4 inch) long strips. Rinse the peppers, cut in half, trim and also cut into very thin strips. Blanch the vegetables briefly in boiling salt water, rinse with cold water and pat dry. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and sear on the both sides briefly in 2 tablespoons hot oil. Remove from the pan and place with skin side down on an oiled baking sheet. Mix the vegetables with the remaining oil and season with lemon juice and salt. Spread on the salmon fillets and bake 12-15 minutes in the oven. Serve garnished with fresh herbs.
