Ingredients
  • Salmon:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided, plus more for brushing fish
  • 2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

Directions
Salmon:

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

Heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter over high heat in a saute pan large enough to hold both fillets. Place salmon in the pan and sear for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer pan to oven and roast until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and brush with butter.

Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter over low heat. Add cabbage and saute over low heat for about 5 to 7 minutes. Add nuts, raisins, and seasonings and toss to combine. Place salmon fillets on a bed of the sauteed cabbage mixture and top with Salmon Mousse.

Salmon Mousse:

Vegetable oil, for frying

1/4-pound salmon scraps

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 egg

Pinch Spanish paprika

Pinch black pepper

Heat about 1-inch oil in a Dutch oven or large, heavy skillet (with at least 2-inch sides) to 350 degrees F.

Combine remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Scoop out a couple balls of salmon mousse and fry until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain before serving.
