Home / Recipes / Pan Seared Salmon Belly with Mushrooms & Mashed Peas infused with Bacon

I know, the photo isn’t the most appetising but it was really quite yummy.  This is my idea of a healthy dinner which is full of Omega-3 fatty acids, iron and vitamins.  Quite quick to prepare too!

You’ll need:

  • Slices of Salmon Belly (substitute with fillet if you must)
  • Half a packet of shimeiji mushrooms (or button)
  • 2 rashes of bacon
  • half a cup of baby peas


  1. If you’re using frozen peas like I did, microwave them covered on HIGH for 2 mins
  2. While the peas are in the microwave, heat up a frying pan and when hot, pan fry the bacon until the oils are released
  3. Set the bacon aside.  The peas should be done now.  Toss the peas in the frying pan with the bacon oil for about a min.
  4. Take the peas out and mash them lightly
  5. In the frying pan, sear the salmon belly fillets, skin-side first
  6. When the salmon skin gets a bit crispy, flip and cook it until your preferred doneness
  7. Remove salmon from the pan.  There should be a lot of oil in the pan by now and it’s all good oils!
  8. Toss in the mushroom.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Cook until the mushrooms go a bit soft and moisture from the mushrooms are released into the pan.
  9. Serve!

This meal is good for dinner because it is very low in carbs. Not saying that carbs are bad but I’ve learnt that it’s better to cut back on the carbs at night if you don’t want to retain a lot of water and to lose that little bit of weight.
