STEP 1
Get your container and pour a small amount of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (to taste) into this so there is a thin layer covering the bottom. This is where you will be able to marinate your salmon dish and allow it to rest.
STEP 2
Now, place one slice of Smoked Salmon (3 slice) keeping it to one side where possible. Then, place another piece of salmon next to this, in the opposite direction ensuring it is also on top of the oil.
STEP 3
Pour another dash of extra virgin olive oil over the top and sprinkle a serving of chopped Fresh Parsley (to taste) on top of the salmon.
STEP 4
Then, squeeze a generous amount of Lemon Juice (to taste) over the top of this layer ensuring it will be able to soak up the flavor.
STEP 5
Next place the third piece of salmon on top, add a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, some more chopped parsley and of course some more lemon juice!
STEP 6
Now, you should be able to smell the parsley and lemon dancing with the salmon in your container.
STEP 7
Seal the container and then place it in the fridge. This will give your salmon time to drown in the flavors and will bring out the best of your salmon.
STEP 8
Leave in the fridge for 2 hours, or at the very least, half an hour.
STEP 9
Now, time to prepare the salad.
STEP 10
Place the Arugula (to taste) into a bowl and add a pinch of Salt (to taste), a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, and some balsamic vinegar.
STEP 11
The best way to mix your salad is with your hands, tossing it to ensure it is evenly dressed.
STEP 12
Next, time for the secret ingredient, Black Olives (to taste)! Cut each olive in half, then in half again, then into small pieces.
STEP 13
Using your hands, place a small bunch of your salad into the palm of one hand.
STEP 14
Cusp the salad and squeeze it so that you begin to make it into a small ball.
STEP 15
Place this onto the centre of a plate and repeat. This should not be too high and will form the bed of your dish.
STEP 16
Remove one piece of salmon from the container, and place it around one side of the bed of rocket. The next piece should wrap around the other side and then the third piece, on top.
STEP 17
Your finishing touch are the olives. Sprinkle olives all over your dish as evenly as you can starting from the top and letting them fall down.
STEP 18
Finally, because lemon is the perfect match with seafood, add another squeeze of lemon juice on top of the Smoked Salmon Salad. Serve and enjoy!
