Fresh Salmon Medallions
Not only will I show you an easy and delicious way to make salmon, I'm going to show you what I think is a very clever technique for turning the least desirable cut of salmon into something absolutely fabulous. Basically, this is one of those "when life gives you lemons" lessons. Serve on top of a shaved cucumber salad and sprinkle with more cayenne pepper if you like.
Feel free to use a skinless piece of salmon tail instead of cutting the skin off yourself.
Make sure you mix and match larger and smaller salmon slices in each medallion, so that each is fairly even.
Your favorite vinegar will work in place of fresh lemon juice in the mayonnaise mixture, or a nice garlic aioli would work as well.
