3 cup vegetable oil

3 Spring onion

5 small salmon filets

2 French or Easter egg radishes

0.5 cup watercress

0.5 teaspoons tarragon

3 leaves of mint torn

1 teaspoons cilantro

1 leaf Thai basil torn


Fill a saute pan with vegetable oil & add spring onions, mint & tarragon. Bring up to 180 degrees. Season the salmon with curry powder & kosher salt to taste. Place the filets in the oil and let cook on one side for about two minutes. While those cook, you can prepare your salad.

Cut French & Easter egg radishes and place in a bowl. Add watercress, tarragon, mint, cilantro & Thai basil. Sprinkle with lemon & fish sauce dressing. Toss the salad together.

Remove the salmon from the oil & dry on a paper towel.

To plate, place a little bit of salad on the bottom of a bowl and top with the salmon filet. Sprinkle a little bit of lemon dressing, followed by the zest of a lime and a touch of Vietnamese cinnamon.
