It must be at least ten years ago, when I happened to read an English cookbook in the library and found a recipe for salmon medallions prepared in a very delicious way. I took a photocopy of the page and then made those medallions. They were really great-tasting and I have often made those since that first time.
The recipe was lost many years ago and I probably don’t remember all the ingredients of the spice mixture used in the original one. Even so these medallions done my way is still avery successful dish, maybe a little bit different but delicious even so.
If you do not happen to have preserved lemon rind available you can use grated lemon rind as well, though you have to be very careful not to add too much. I have spoiled some dishes by doing so. There is a very easy recipe for preserved lemon rinds in my blog – I suggest to try them, since they’ll give quite a different taste experience compared to grated ones.
Potato mash with baked garlic is just an excellent choice to serve with these medallions.
