Salmon Cracklin’

1 Salmon skin Scaled Very Well from the 4 oz of sliced Salmon
1 tsp Olive oil
1 Pinch Kosher Salt
Scale skin very well. Scrape any additional pieces of flesh or fat from the skin carefully. Drizzle with oil and place on a baking mat. Season with salt and Cook at 300 degrees for 20 minutes or until crispy. If needed, flip skin and rotate pan halfway through. Once skin is out allow to cool, and break into pieces as garnish.

To compose, take marinated salmon and lay slices flat across a plate. Spoon green onion crème fraiche down the very center of the salmon. Top with pickled shallots, and sprinkle gremolata all over the salmon, but not on the plate.
