This is a marvelous way to eat salmon. The saltiness from the bacon pairs wonderfully with the simply prepared salmon and the tender mushy peas.
2 rashers bacon
2 salmon fillets
1 small clove garlic
2 cups frozen peas
2 tbs. butter
2 tbs. sour cream or creme fraiche
Put the kettle on to boil. Using scissors, snip the bacon into a skillet and cook until crisp. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Season the salmon and add to the skillet. Cook 4-5 minutes per side, or to your likeness.
In the meantime, put the peas and garlic clove (unpeeled) into a jug and pour over boiling water. Leave for 3-4 minutes, then drain, peel the garlic clove and place the peas and garlic clove in a blender. Whizz until chunky, then stir in the butter, sour cream or creme fraiche and season. Serve alongside the salmon.
