Malt Brings Salmon To The Rhode Show

By  |  0 Comments

Chef Matthew Reilly brings his favorite dish to the tube.

Newport’s youngest chef, Matt Reilly, introduced the hosts of The Rhode Show to hisĀ Seared Salmon with Chimi Churri Sauce, in a segment where we learned that the hosts of a program that, more often than not, focuses on local cuisine…are rather lukewarm on the whole “seafood” thing, which left us a bit…



Regardless, the dish looks amazing, especially for those of us real Rhode Islanders who like our food picked straight from the sea. If you’d like to cook this meal yourself, you’re going to need the following ingredients:

Skin on salmon
Bay leaf
Olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Crushed red pepper, pepper

Once you’ve got those together, you can follow Matt’s instructions in the video or follow these:

Boil the parsnips in salted water with bay leaf.
Strain mixture, remove bay leaf and puree with cream.min

Coarsely chop mint, cilantro and parsley.
Add olive oil, vinegar, chilies and salt.

Sear salmon skin side down until almost brown, do not flip, finish in a 400 degree oven for 7-9 min.

Alternatively, you can walk into Malt and tell them “Have the hyperactive kid in the back cook me up his salmon thing” for a less labor intensive experience.
