(Serves 4)

4 salmon fillets, each weighing around 160 g

100 g olive oil

10 ml lemon juice

40 g mixed dried seaweed (cochayuyu and luche, if available)

2 cloves of garlic, very finely diced

¼ chili pepper (cacho de cabra, if available), cut into rings

180 g abalone, cooked and diced

180 g sea shrimps

40 cc abalone stock

50 g celery, cut into julienne strips

150 g hydroponic watercress

20 g lemon peel, cut into julienne strips

Diced spring onion and parsley Salt and pepper


Season the salmon with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Spread one side with the seaweed mixture and sear this side until golden. Place the salmon in the oven to finish off and cook until medium.

To make the pil pil sauce, heat half of the olive oil and add the chopped cacho de cabra chili, the abalone, shrimps and garlic, soften with the abalone stock and add in the spring onion and parsley. Stir in the remaining olive oil.

Finally, sauté the celery for one minute, then add the watercress and lemon zest. To serve, place a salmon fillet in the center of the plate and cover with the abalone and shrimp pil pil. Finally, place the watercress-lemon-celery mixture on top of the salmon.
