Celery and Salmon Tip

Peel the celery, wash, dry, chop finely and then put it gradually in oil, fry until it becomes golden and crispy, then salt. Put butter in a large frying pan or air fryer, a little vegetable oil, heat until the butter begins to darken. Then put the salmon filet in the oil with the skin down, leave to fry for 2 minutes, then turn over and still fry on the other side for exactly 2 minutes.

At the end, to achieve the desired taste, put the salmon in the oven on 250 degree temperature for about 5 minutes to bring to readiness. At this time, cut the remaining butter into pieces and add to the prepared sauce, mix and taste – if necessary put pepper and salt.

Put the finished fried fillet of salmon on a dish, break the celery into pieces, pour over the cooked sauce on top, decorate with a sprig of celery.
