Step by step recipe

1 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #1Prepare and chop 1 leek.

Prepare and chop 1 shallot.
25 min.
2 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #2Cut 250 g salmon fillet into 2 cm (1 inch) cubes, or thereabouts, keeping only the flesh and removing any skin and bones. 5 min.
3 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #3Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a non-stick pan on medium heat. When this is hot, add the chopped shallot, salt and pepper and cook for 1 or 2 minutes. 2 min.
4 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #4Then add the chopped leek and mix well. Cook uncovered until the leek is just tender but still nice and green.

Remove from the heat and keep hot.
7 min.
5 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #5Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a frying pan and once this is nice and hot add the cubes of salmon. Cook for a bare 2 to 3 minutes, so that the cubes are browned on the sides. Do not cook any longer or you will end up with salmon purée.

Remove the salmon from the pan onto a plate and set aside.
4 min.
6 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #6Put the pan back on medium heat and add 100 g feta cut into small pieces. Stir until it is melted. 3 min.
7 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #7Add 150 g plain yoghurt and 1 teaspoon tomato paste, and bring to the boil while stirring.

Heat the serving plates.
5 min.
8 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #8Return the salmon cubes to the pan and stir gently. Add the juice of ½ lemon if you like and remove from the heat. 5 min.
9 Cretan-style salmon  : Photo of step #9Arrange on the plates: lay a bed of leek and pour the salmon and sauce on top.

Serve without delay.
5 min.

Remarks

Use a Greek-style yogurt if possible, as it is smooth and a little sharp.

If you don't have any yoghurt, you can replace it with cream, but this adds a lot more calories.
