How to Make Turkish Arugula Salad
And now, it’s time for our delicious Arugula Salad which is the perfect compliment for our fish dish today. What we’ll need is some fresh arugula washed and dried fresh tomatoes, lemon, extra virgin olive oil and salt.
Let’s start by taking the arugula which is very healthy and rich in iron. Now with the arugula, it is really simple. All you have to do is take it with your hand and break it. That’s the way we like to do it at home. Just break it. It gives it a wonderful look. Now arugula is great because it’s rich in iron and minerals. And what we love in Turkey is the use of the freshest produce.
We’re going to chop our tomatoes just like this. Big wedges are what we like because it makes it look very pretty and presentable which is what we love. But if you don’t want to use the arugula, you can use curly lettuce, romaine lettuce. Spinach is also a great way. Any type of leafy lettuce but the main important thing about this is the dressing.
The dressing, we’re going to take one lemon juice, mix it with our extra virgin olive oil and salt. The dressing is what brings out the flavor in the fish and compliments all these dishes and bring it together and actually cuts a little bit of the taste of the fish so you definitely need this dressing with anything over here. Let’s put some salt. And you know how I like to do it, I like to mix up my dressing beforehand. We’ll pour it all over and that’s it. You can have a little onion to this if you want a little crispiness. But because we put onion and the peas, we’re not going to do that here—just a little mix.
Once we have the mixture done, we’ll get our serving plate right here, pour it in and we’ll garnish with a little bit of lemon. Now, lemon is a great way to garnish lots of different types of salads. And I’m going to show you a really great way to garnish with the lemon juice. Take half your lemon like this, slice it down the middle, give it a little cut and twist it. There you go. That’s a great way to garnish. It works with many different dishes.
Now when we come back, we’re going to get our fish out of the fridge and prepare it with our coating getting ready to fry. And then I have a sweet surprise in store for you. So don’t go away.
