Black Sea Salmon with pickled onions and red pepper

Last week my hubby ordered 3 Jamie Oliver books from Amazon.com. He knows my passion for Oliver's way of cooking and his personality in general. So it's kind of early Christmas present... Hopefully I'll get another on Christmas! :) Recently, I'm pretty into his new show on TV 'Jamie's American Road Trip'.I just love the show!!! My hubby isn't very good at cooking, although his scrambled eggs are amazing :D Yet at least once a week I make him watch any Jamie's show. I can say I have the whole collection by now. Anyway, the books should arrive next week so impatiently I am trying some recipes from his shows. This time I've chosen his way of frying salmon and added some pickled onion and pepper salad on top. Delicious!!!

What we need:
1 slice of salmon ( I used the Black Sea salmon which is a bit whiter but still tasty)
salt and pepper to taste
dried oregano

for pickled salad:

1 onion
1 pepper
salt and pepper
1 lemon
a pinch of sumak
olive oil
some parsley

What we have to do:

1. Preheat the frying pan.
2. Season a slice of salmon with salt and pepper. Leave the skin on. Place salmon skin on the pan ( don't put any oil in a pan or it will start to smoke) and fry for 5-6 min until skin gets crispy brown. Then turn upside down and fry for 2 min and remove from the pan.
3. Slice onion and pepper. Chop parsley. Add salt and with a hand cry to crush sliced onion. Then add pepper and sumak and lemon juice and oil. Leave for 20-30 min.
4. Put fried salmon on a plate and place salad on top. Drizzle some extra lemon juice if you feel like! Enjoy!!!
