  • 2 tablespoons grape seed oil
  • Six 6-ounce skin-on salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup julienned red onion
  • 1 cup small-diced Roma tomatoes
  • 3 cups large-diced seedless watermelon, rind removed
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chiffonade


Step 1

For the salmon: In a saute pan over medium-high heat, add the oil and allow to warm. Next, sprinkle the salmon fillets with the salt and pepper. Then, add to the oil, skin-side up, and allow to sear for 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, flip the fish and repeat cooking until desired temperature, 3 to 4 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the pan and allow to rest for 4 to 5 minutes before serving. 

Step 2

For the salad: In a saucepan over high heat, combine 2 cups water, the white balsamic vinegar and sugar. Stir the mixture and heat until the sugar is fully dissolved. Once the sugar is dissolved, add the onions and cook for 3 minutes. Then add the tomatoes and cook for a final minute. Once the tomatoes have cooked, remove from the heat and toss in the watermelon and basil. Portion to plate and finish with the seared salmon.
