i got some *amazing* salmon direct from the fishermen in alaska. it's fresh frozen sockeye. it has a really buttery, rich texture. just lovely. 

 

however, i am really hesitant to cook it. i got 10 pieces. first 2 i made a simple pan chowder, pan seared the fish, finished in chowder and it was so yummy. last night i made another recipe that was just weird. the fish tasted great. but i won't make the recipe again. just came out too strange. i don't want to make anymore "weird" recipes. 

 

anyone have an brilliant recipes for fab salmon? something that really highlights the fish. 

 

thanks!

i really love to just bake it with maple syrup - just a little- on top, maybe butter, salt and pepper.

the maple does something special to it.  that's my favorite thing to do with it, but i tend to prefer it not fancied up, just prefer the taste of the fish.

 

 


Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

Sure.

Take a lot of herbs such ad Parsley, Basil, Dill, Coriander etc, and put it in the food processor with a few garlic cloves, honey (2-3 spoons), a little bit of Dijon mustard (1 tsp) and about half a cup olive oil. (sorry I don't have exact amounts, I never wrote it down).

Grind/mince it all together until you get a nice paste.

Spread some of it over a baking pan, put the salmon on top and spread some more on top of the salmon. bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

As an Alaskan, we just use lemons, garlic, salt and pepper.

 

But the above mixture of herbs and garlic with mustard I do a lot too.

 

Also soy-ginger marinades are good!

 

We either grill or bake the salmon, for the most part.  If you grill, wrap it in tinfoil.  I also put tinfoil down on a baking sheet when I bake, otherwise the skin is too sticky.

 

Enjoy the bounty!

My favorite recipe is to lightly brush with Dijon, then sprinkle with Cajun seasonning.  Bake at 375 foot 15-17 min.  Yummy!

 

( I have had some yummy maple/ Asian salmon dishes too, but I don't have the recipes...)

Soy, ginger, a bit of molasses or brown sugar, and lemon is one of my favorites.  I often just poach it in a cast-iron pan like this.  (I'm an Alaskan, so eat lots of salmon).  Really, if the salmon is high-quality, it needs very little in the way of spices - even just salt and pepper is great.  Just make sure not to over cook it.

hmmm... I am a simple cook... I just sprinkle a little garlic pepper on top and cook.  Boyfriend makes it a bunch of different ways( its our favorite food) but I just put seasoning on top. Serve over rice.

they certainly do not need to be!

 

I poach my filets (along with veggies) and flake them myself- the broth is added to mayo and sauces

My whole family loves this fast and easy salmon recipe: Spread Caesar dressing over the fish, top with crushed Caesar croutons, and  bake. If you have basil or parmesan cheese those are good added to the crushed croutons.
