Salmon with red rice, Fried garlic and avocado. Don't be impressed by the presentation, the dish is easy, indeed very. Not only, is a unique dish (so you don't have to prepare anything else), nutritionally complete and very healthy because rich in omega 3, vitamins, fat is good’ (those of the avocado, extra virgin olive oil and salmon), of fiber and minerals (Hermes red rice integral). Whenever I can I try to prepare a dish that's good, healthy but also beautiful to look at and so in this case is the mise en place to make everything more palatable. The salmon fillet (Obviously it would be better to use the wild salmon) is marinated in lime, Chili, soy sauce and fennel. Then I garnished with thin slices of garlic and chilli fries for a second in boiling oil. I prepared a simplified guacamole with avocado, lime, oil, red onion and chili and I simply boiled rice Artemis (sounds great even on Venus). To give a note crunchy I dried in the oven the skin of the salmon that I had advanced, but it is a detail that little man in the recipe: If you want to try just put the skin between two sheets of parchment paper and bake at 160 degrees in a convection oven until it loses the fat becoming crisp. The prep time is around 45 minutes, but the satisfaction after you eat will last much longer.

- 4 salmon fillets (If possible wild) cut each into two parts

Put the salmon in a bowl with soy, the juice of a lime, the chopped fennel and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to one hour.
Thinly slice garlic (You can use your fingers or a utility knife to carefully mandolin truffles) and put it in a little whole milk for 30 minutes. Thinly slice the chilli and shallot.
Peel the avocado, cut it into cubes and season with lime juice, extra virgin olive oil, Salt, papá, some’ crushed red pepper and shallot. Stir well and cover with plastic wrap to touch leaving 30 minutes at room temperature for flavor.
Boil the rice, drain and season with a little olive oil and freshly ground black pepper.
Drain the garlic from the milk, dry it and fry it together and get some’ chilli pepper in hot oil until golden brown: 5-10 seconds.
Drain the salmon from the marinade and Grill it over high heat on a hot plate and lightly oiled. Remember to add salt only at the last minute and that salmon should be golden and crunchy on the outside and rosy and juicy inside, so do not overdo it with the cooking times.
