Kind of on a salmon kick and a toast kick lately so I’m thinking why not combine the two!
This recipe has all the crunch factor that I love - richness from the ghee, freshness from the radishes & chives, and flaaavour-town from the salmon. Felt a little bit *extra* using chive blossoms, but you gotta make yourself feel special some days (correction: every day)!
I love incorporating some form of fat into my toast concoctions because otherwise it’s just dry toast! Probably why I love avocado toast so much… and hot buttered toast…. and THIS. Panfried salmon with ghee!
Last week my husband kindly told me I really needed to clean out the freezer as my frozen fruit (last year’s peaches?!) and other odds-and-ends kept preventing him from shutting the freezer door…
It’s a good thing frozen fish lasts in the freezer because that meant a forgotten fillet at the bottom of the freezer was redeemed and turned into a very delicious meal!
Reasons why to make this:
Toast is always a good idea
Salmon is v v delicious
It’s super easy

Pan Fried Wild Salmon Toasts with Radishes and Chive Blossoms
Serves 1-2 // Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar-Free & No Sugar Added
1 -2 slices of whatever bread you like
1 Tbs butter or ghee (or drizzle of olive oil)
1 - 6oz wild sockeye salmon fillet
1 Tbs avocado oil, or favourite high-heat cooking fat
sprinkle of salt and pepper
chopped chives and flowers (optional)
Toast bread and slather it with ghee, butter, or a drizzle of olive oil.
Take the salmon out of the package and blot dry with a towel, drizzle with avocado oil and brush to cover. Season with salt and pepper.
Using a cast iron skillet, or your favourite skillet, heat over medium-low heat for about 3 minutes. Once the pan is warm add the avocado oil or cooking oil into the pan.
Increase the heat to medium-high. Place the salmon fillet skin side down in the pan and press down firmly with a spatula so it comes into contact with the surface of the hot pan. Cook the salmon for about 3 minutes. Carefully turn salmon fillet over and cook for another 5 minutes. Salmon is cooked when it flakes easily. Remove salmon from pan.
Slice radishes and top toast with salmon, radishes and chives, sesame seeds, and fresh dill if desired.
