Sotad laxsida - Blackened salmon

Jag gillar verkligen lax. Gott och nyttigt!

Hela veckan har jag längtat efter att laga den enligt ett recept från IKEA-bloggen "Livet hemma".

Vad sägs om Sotad laxsida på krispig primörsallad med krutonger och tillbehöret sardellcréme?

Jag vill inte göra IKEA-reklam, men på "Livet hemma" finns jättefina bilder på anrättningen.

Vår egen twist var att vi grillade laxen över glöder efter en brasa i kaminen. Det blev suveränt gott. En slags lyxig ceasarsallad med kryddgrillad lax, vad mer kan man önska? Sardellcrémen var farligt god, även om jag rekommenderar dubbla mängden sardeller.

I really like salmon. Tasty and healthy!

All week I have longed to cook it with inspiration from a recipe from IKEA blog “Livet hemma” ("Life at home").

How about Blackened salmon on a crispy primeur salad with croutons and accessory mayonnaise with anchovies?

I don´t want to do IKEA commercials, but at ”Livet hemma” ("Life at home") there are great photos on the preparing of the dish.

Our own twist was that we coal grilled the salmon in the stove (fireplace?). It turned out supremely good. A kind of luxurious Caesar salad with spicy salmon, what more could you wish for? The mayonnaise with anchovies was very good, although I would recommend double the amount of anchovies.

Mayonnaise with anchovies
