I am convinced that many of you know the blog La Cocina de Carolina . Well, it is that same Carolina whom we welcome to the blog today! He proposes a recipe that many will like, marinated salmon, a recipe that he has prepared with the new Monix frying pan , which he has been able to try exclusively before the market launch and that from today you can find here . Welcome Carolina, and everyone, Bon appetit!

Salmon is a blue fish with many qualities, it is one of the most recommended foods in diets due to its healthy fat content and its nutritional properties. There are many ways to serve salmon, whether raw as tartare or sushi, grilled, smoked...

Today we propose a recipe for salmon marinated with lemon in a sauce that we will prepare ourselves. Although in this recipe we will cook the salmon, it is important that it is raw inside so that it does not harden too much and maintains the characteristic texture of fresh salmon.

To prepare this lemon salmon recipe I have used the new Monix Mineral pan , which promises to be the best model of the brand, both for the high quality of its new and revolutionary non-stick system (the touch of its surface is unique, nothing that do with what I had seen so far in no frying pan).


Through my job I have the opportunity to test a wide variety of cooking pans and casseroles, from stainless steel cookware to different types of cast aluminum or wrought iron. Today I am going to tell you about this frying pan, Mineral de Monix, which I fell in love with at first sight due to its stainless steel handle and its original stone-style appearance.

The surface of this frying pan is completely different from what I was used to, rough to the touch, made thanks to a unique manufacturing technology that uses small steel balls to modify its surface, thus forming an ultra-resistant finish. This allows me to use the minimum amount of cooking fat, just spreading a drop of oil on the surface and spreading it with absorbent paper is enough. Even without using oil it is still completely non-stick.


  • The juice of a lemon
  • 100ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • a pinch of salt
  • black pepper balls
  • 4 slices of salmon
  • 4 teaspoons chopped black olives
  • Lemon slices


  1. Mix the lemon juice together with the olive oil, the chopped fresh rosemary, the thyme sprig, the garlic, the salt and the ground pepper at the moment with the pepper mill .
  2. Place the salmon fillets in a deep dish and sprinkle with two thirds of the previous mixture to marinate.
  3. We cover it with film and let it marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the chopped black olives with the leftover lemon mixture. We booked.
  5. Once the salmon is ready, we put the pan on medium high heat and add a few drops of oil.
  6. Add the salmon slices and cook for about 2-4 minutes on each side (depending on their thickness).
  7. We serve the salmon seasoned with the sauce with the olives and a few slices of lemon. In summer it is great if we accompany it with a very fresh salad.

Sin detrimento de las propiedades del salmón (descritas en la presentación) como alimento (vegetarian@s y vegan@s abstenerse), es importante diferenciar entre salmón “libre” (también denominado “salvaje”) y salmón de piscifactoría. En el caso del salmón criado en cautividad, su carne va a estar contaminada con hormonas, antibióticos e ingredientes desconocidos del pienso (recuérdese el caso de las “vacas locas”) con el que se les alimenta. Por otro lado y por el hecho de haberse criado en cautividad, el salmón de piscifactoría carecerá de la textura propia del salmón libre, fruto de su movilidad sin barreras artificiales. Para rematar la cuestión sepan l@s lector@s que, para mejorar el aspecto de la carne de salmón cautivo, a ésta se le añaden colorantes, ya sea en vida del animal a través del alimento, o bien después de su sacrificio y en el procesado del producto final. En otras palabras, no todo el “salmón” es SALMÓN. Acostumbrémonos pues a leer las etiquetas del producto y actuar en consecuencia.
