Salmon In Lemon Brodetto With Pea Puree (TBT)

This throwback Thursday was picked by  husband, but my son's favorite fish is salmon.  (maybe even favorite protein)  Just be careful, it's easy to put too much of the brodetto and this isn't soup;).  This time the dinner wasn't as picture worthy as the last time I made it, but just as tasty.  I can't get over the pea puree.  It is amazing!   This time the picture looked bad too. It is also because of my over ladling of the brodello.  Oops!  In the end, this dish is good ( good enough to be one of the first to be repeated), looks pretty, easy to make, and is a little different.

Salmon In Lemon Brodetto With Pea Puree

Lemon Brodetto
2 Tbl olive oil
1 shallot diced
2 lemons juiced
1 lemon zested
2 Cup chicken broth
1 Tbl chopped fresh mint leaves
Pea Puree
2 Cup frozen peas thawed (about 10 ounces)
1/4 Cup fresh mint leaves
1 Clove garlic
1/2 Tsp kosher salt
1/2 Tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan
1/4 Cup olive oil
4 (4 to 6-ounce) pieces salmon
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

1.To make the Lemon Brodetto, warm the olive oil in a medium saucepan
over medium heat. Add the shallots and saute until tender, about 7
minutes. Add the lemon juice, zest, and broth. Bring to a simmer, and
keep warm, covered, over low heat.
2.To make the Pea Puree, combine the peas, mint, garlic, salt, and
pepper in a food processor and puree. With the machine running, add the
olive oil in a steady drizzle. Transfer the pea puree to a small bowl
and stir in the Parmesan. Set aside.
3.To make the Salmon, warm the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over
high heat. Season the salmon pieces with salt and pepper. Sear the
salmon until a golden crust forms, about 4 to 5 minutes on the first
side. Flip the fish and continue cooking until medium-rare, about 2
minutes more depending on the thickness of the fish.
4.To assemble the dish, add the tablespoon chopped mint to the Lemon
Brodetto and divide between 4 shallow dishes. Place a large spoonful of
Pea Puree into the center of each bowl. Place a salmon piece atop each
mound of Pea Puree. Serve immediately.

The first time I made it, the picture was much better!
