Salmon wrapped in prosciutto-potato salad with fresh peas and asparagus with mustard dressing
I sat down recently and clicked through various blogs that I follow and came across a delicious and summery potato salad here So I decided to make it this evening with salmon fillets wrapped in prosciutto; an old Jamie Oliver recipe that I have used so many times and always turns out fantastic.
2 pieces of salmon steak
4 slices of prosciutto
1 kg of new potatoes
A bag / box of new peas in the pod
15-20 fresh green asparagus
3 tbsp. of honey
3 tbsp. of coarse mustard (mild)
2 tbsp. of finely grated lemon zest
4 tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1.5 tbsp. of olive oil
Preheat oven to 225 degrees C
Boil the potatoes and peel them. We have nothing against a little potato skin so I peeled them a little rough this time. Allow to cool and cut into cubes.
Place the salmon on a cutting board, season with salt and pepper. Carefully take two slices of prosciutto and place them around each piece of salmon so most of the steak is covered. Sprinkle a little olive oil over each salmon steak and place them in a small dish in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Remove peas from the pods. Boil some water and pour over your asparagus – let them stand for 5 minutes. Then pour ice cold water over to stop the cooking process. Cut your asparagus into small pieces. Then make the dressing, mix olive oil with honey and stir in the lemon juice and coarse mustard together. Mix everything and add lemon peel in.
Now mix potatoes, peas, and asparagus and add dressing.
