...Pan Roasted Salmon with Homemade Tartar Sauce

The flavours from a fillet-o-fish sandwich from Macdonalds are truly classic. This might explain why whenever we eat out with my mother, she will invariably order a side of tartar sauce to go with her fish no matter where we happen to be eating.  As strange as it might be to ask for tartar sauce at a fancy restaurant, I can understand where she's coming from. The rich and briny condiment really does go perfectly with any type of fish. In my version the brightness of lemon and parsley is a great match with the salty and briny capers. 
- Fillet of salmon trimmed into two equal pieces
- 4 tbsp mayonaise
- 2 tbsp capers chopped
- 3 tbsp parsley chopped
- 1 green onion chopped
- zest of 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper to taste


1. To make your tartar sauce, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, parsley, green onion, capers, lemon zest and lemon juice. Set aside until ready to serve 

2. Trim your side of salmon into two relatively equal pieces so as to ensure even cooking

3. Preheat an oven proof pan over medium heat for 5 minutes and add 2 tbsp of canola oil

4. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and carefully place into pan. Leave in the pan without touching it for 6 minutes then place in the oven under the broiler on high for another 4 minutes 

5. Remove the salmon from the pan and serve with your homemade tartar sauce
