Ingredients

200 g salmon fillet    
2 tsp olive oil   10 mL
3/4 cup rice, long grain   140 g
2 eggs size large    
1/3 cup frozen peas   40 g
1 stalk celery, finely diced   70 g
1 carrots, grated   100 g
1 green onions/scallions, finely chopped   15 g
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil   45 mL
4 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   1/2 lemon
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
1/4 cup mayonnaise   65 mL

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 215°C/425°F. Put the salmon on an oiled baking sheet and brush with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place in the middle of the oven and bake for about 10 min for a 2 to 2,5 cm thick fillet. Since the cooking time depends on the fillet thickness and the actual temperature of the oven, it is important to check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through. Let it cool down for about 10 min, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rice. Let stand in the refrigerator at least 1 h.
  3. Boil the eggs (10 min), cool them down immediately in cold water. Set aside.
  4. Cook the peas in a pot of salted boiling water, 3-4 min. Let cool and set aside.
  5. When ready to serve, prepare the vegetables : grate the carrots, dice the celery, and chop the green onions. Put them in a salad bowl, with the rice and peas. Drizzle with the extra virgin oil and lemon juice. Adjust the seasoning, then toss.
  6. Transfer the salad to a plate. Cut the salmon into pieces and quarter the eggs. Place them on top of the salad. Serve with mayo on the side.
