    1/2 cup of lite coconut milk (may use more of less depending on rice)
    Sambal Oelek to taste

    What a flavor explosion! This dish had so many wonderful layers of flavor.

  3. Leftover Salmon Salad

    Kelly makes a fantastic grilled lemon-marinated salmon and rather than feeding the leftovers to my ungrateful cat, I like to make mash it up in a salmon salad that makes a great snack or second meal. Marinated, cooked salmon is best for this simple recipe.

    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    2 cups chopped, leftover salmon
    1/2 cup slivered almonds
    1 green onion, chopped

    In a medium bowl, mix together mayo, lemon juice, and pepper. Toss with salmon, almonds, and onion. Serve on crackers, inside pita, lettuce wraps or stuff inside bell pepper.

  4. Easy, Amazing, Salmon~
    This is one of those recipes that you can put together on short notice!

    Fresh wild salmon
    Organic brown OR white sugar
    Slivered almonds

    Simply roll the salmon in a small dish of sugar. Prepare a med-heat stainless steal or cast iron pan with a thin layer of oil (preferably safflower oil) in it. Add fish to pan, sprinkle slivered almonds on top, put lid on pan and let cook for 20 minutes. The sugar caramelizes the almonds and it’s sooooo easy. Your guests will love it!

  5. Pumpkin seed-encrusted salmon with hummus and yogurt sauce

    came up with this as a healthier alternative to rich beurre blanc preparations, but still nice enough to serve to guests–lots of middle eastern flavors that really complement the salmon; serve with a salad with cucumber, feta, red onion and mint and fresh pita on the side.

    ingredients for four servings:
    10-12 oz. fresh wild salmon filets
    3-4 cloves garlic, minced and divided
    1 T. butter
    1 T. melted butter
    1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, chopped fine
    2 T. falafel mix
    1 T. panko
    1 can chickpeas, drained (or 1/2 cup dried chickpeas soaked, cooked, and drained)
    1/4 cup sunflower butter
    1/2 t. cumin
    1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
    1 T. fresh lemon juice
    1 T. fresh dill, chopped
    celery salt

    -prepare the hummus by pureeing the chickpeas, sunflower butter, 1-2 cloves garlic (start with 1 and add more to taste), cumin, in a food processor and add salt to taste
    -prepare the yogurt sauce by mixing the yogurt, lemon juice, and dill until smooth and add a small amount of celery salt to taste
    -mix the pumpkin seeds, falafel mix, and panko with the melted butter and set aside
    -pre-heat the broiler, cover a baking sheet with foil, and rub some salt and black pepper into the salmon
    -melt 1 T. butter in a large non-stick pan over med-high heat and saute the remaining 2 cloves garlic for 2 min.
    -place the filet(s), skin-side down in the pan and cook for 3-4 min, until the edges are just beginning to turn opaque
    -gently flip the filet and cook for another 3-4 min; if you and your guests prefer not to eat the skin, remove it now (for presentation–see below)
    -gently flip the salmon onto the prepared baking sheet and cover with a thin layer of the pumpkin seed mixture
    -broil for 1-2 min until the topping is just beginning to brown

    to serve: spread about 1/4 cup hummus into an even circle on each plate and sprinkle with paprika, top with a serving of salmon and drizzle with yogurt sauce

  10. Salmon New Orleans Style

    I’m not saying salmon is a traditional Creole ingredient. But I’m sure they’d understand, particularly if their nearest significant body of water was limited to a lake with a maximum depth about the same as a decent above ground swimming pool. What is “authentic” is that the Coho, or Silver, Salmon was fresh. Picked up by the fishmonger at the airport this morning after arriving on a flight from Alaska. Around here it’s impossible to beat Kate’s Fish at the West Side Market. Kate’s attitude may be as seasonal as the fish, but the prices are fair and the selection is honest. Today I saw them throwing away pounds and pounds of Halibut that wasn’t up to par. They’ll get reimbursed for the fish from their connection, but they passed on a lot of sales this afternoon. Most of the rest of the dish is pure New Orleans, or at least as best as this Jersey guy can do it.

    There are three components: The fish, the shrimp remoulade (which is really two components in itself), and the fried green tomatoes. I take no credit for the shrimp/fried tomato combination. I copied if from Upperline in New Orleans, where I had one of the best meals of my life. Chuck, at The Gumbo Pages (http://www.gumbopages.com/) discusses the recipe, and has a great New Orleans themed website. Danno, at NOLA Cuisine (http://www.nolacuisine.com/), has some great recipes and commentary too. Danno doesn’t know it, but he’s my hero.

    The salmon part is simple. The rest, while by no means difficult, is a bit time consuming. But if everything is laid out beforehand preparation goes pretty quickly, and there are ample times to pause and grab a drink. The sauce is best if it hangs out in the fridge for a bit, so you’ll want to make that first. Here it is:

    Shrimp Remoulade*

    – Egg yolk
    – Lemon juice
    – Whole grain mustard
    – Creole mustard powder (If you can get Creole Mustard, which shouldn’t be too tough, that can be used in place of the mustard powder and whole grain mustard. It’d likely be preferable.)
    – Oil, of neutral or pleasant flavor (I used half peanut and half olive.)
    – Bell pepper, roughly diced (Mine was a California Wonder that was mostly red with some green.)
    – Onion, diced (I used a sweet white onion from the North Union Farmer’s Market at Crocker Park.)
    – Celery, roughly diced
    – Chile pepper, roughly diced (A Habanero is great here.)
    – Carrot, roughly diced
    – Ketchup
    – Cilantro, chopped well
    – Salt and pepper
    – Cayenne
    – Water to thin it out
    – Put egg yolk, mustard, mustard powder, cayenne, lemon juice, and some salt and pepper in the work bowl of a food processor (I use a mini food processor, and it’s great for things like this and pesto. I don’t have a full size one, but I’m sure it would work too.)
    – Pulse that stuff to combine it
    – Now add oil slowly, through a hole in the processor’s lid if it’s there (It should be there.)
    – Enjoy the magical process of watching these liquids form into a viscous mayonnaise (It’s enjoyable to do this part by hand, but you’ll see in a second why I used the processor here.)
    – Once there’s a nice thick mayo, stop adding oil
    – Add diced bell pepper, onion, celery, chile pepper, and carrot, some ketchup and process
    – When sauce has just little specks of the veges showing, and no more big chunks, stop processing
    – Thin with a bit of water if you’d like (Keep in mind that it will thicken up a little bit in the fridge. If you’re going to err, err on the thick side. It’s easier to thin it out later than mess around trying to thicken it up.)
    – Now add the cilantro and pulse
    – Congratulations, you have made a remoulade
    *It appears that there are as many ways to make a remoulade as there are people who make it. Take a look at The Gumbo Pages and NOLA Cuisine, and if that’s not enough, or you don’t trust internet sources, compare James Peterson’s treatise, Sauces, to the lovely The Silver Spoon cookbook. If there’s a consensus, I can’t find it. So I took some license, as did those before me.

    – Bell peppers, chopped
    – Onion, chopped
    – Carrot, chopped
    – Celery, chopped
    – Old Bay Seasoning (Or the like. I imagine a liquid crab boil would be nice in here too.)
    – Peppercorns
    – Salt
    – Shrimp, uncooked, shell on, preferably (Thawed if they were frozen. I thaw them by putting the frozen shrimp in a bowl in the sink and letting cold water slowly run over them. It goes fast. Once they are thawed they go in the fridge, but I tend to do this at the last minute so they go right from thawing to cooking.)
    – Ice bath (Bowl of ice water.)
    – Get a pot full of water similar to what you’d use to make pasta
    – Put bell peppers, onion, carrot, celery, Old Bay, peppercorns, and salt in the water
    – Bring the pot and it’s fillings to a rapid boil
    – Add shrimp
    – Once water starts to simmer again turn off the heat
    – Let the shrimp steep in the infused water for about five minutes
    – Remove shrimp and place in ice bath (The veges, sadly, get discarded.)
    – Once shrimp have cooled peel them (Try one to make sure its cooked through. It should be, and it should taste good. Also, work on getting the whole tail out of the shell. I believe that last little bit of the tail is the best part.)
    Putting it together:
    – Combine shrimp and remoulade a few minutes before serving

    Fried Green Tomatoes
    – Green tomatoes
    – Cornmeal
    – Bread crumbs (I used Panko, ’cause that’s just what folks use these days.)
    – Flour
    – Egg
    – Cayenne
    – Salt and pepper
    – Oil for shallow frying
    – Set up three bowls next to each other
    – Put flour seasoned with salt, pepper, and cayenne in one bowl
    – Put egg with a bit of water mixed in in the next bowl
    – Combine equal parts bread crumbs and cornmeal in the third bowl
    – Preheat pan
    – Slice tomato
    – Add oil to pan and get it hot enough so tomato will sizzle when placed in there
    – Dip slice of tomato in flour, then knock off excess flour
    – Dip flour coated slice in egg wash
    – Dip now egg and flour coated slice in bread crumb mixture
    – Place in pan and brown each side
    – Let rest on a paper towel

    Salmon (the easiest part)
    – Salmon (Or any fresh fish that’s not too flakey)
    – Oil, for high heat (Mixing Canola and butter works great, but I just used Grapeseed oil here.)
    – Salt and pepper
    – Preheat pan to get it very hot
    – Add oil
    – Season both sides of fish with salt and pepper
    – Place fish, presentation side (here flesh side) down (Shaking the pan right when the fish is put in, and every now and then thereafter, will help ensure the fish doesn’t stick if you’re using an uncoated pan.)
    – When colored nicely flip over, lower heat a drop, and let it cook through (If it’s not cooking through or is a particularly thick piece of fish, throw it in a hot oven, assuming the pan has oven safe handles, or cover the pan. Putting it in the oven is preferable to covering the pan. Try both methods and I think you’ll agree.)
    – Serve

    Thats it. I put some leaf lettuce down under the fried green tomatoes–it traditionally goes with shrimp remoulade. I also garnished with diced and whole chives, and diced avocado, because I had both laying around. It’s a good meal.

  11. Grilled Salmon Ingredients:
    cedar plank (for grilling)
    water to cover plank
    1/3 cup coarse salt
    1 & 1/2 lbs fillet of salmon (we like the skin on)
    a drizzle of olive oil 1/3 yellow onion thinly sliced
    1/2 lemon thinly sliced 1/3 cup fresh dill salt pepper

    Lemon Dijon Sauce Ingredients
    3 tablespoons butter 1 clove garlic,
    minced 2 tablespoons yellow onion,
    minced 1 & 1/2 lemons juiced
    4 tablespoons honey
    3 tablespoons dijon mustard
    1 green onion thinly sliced
    3-4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill


    1. In a large roaster pan place cedar plank, cover with water, add coarse salt. Allow to soak for 3 hours.
    2. Once cedar is fully soaked, prepare salmon.
    3. Pre-heat grill (ours is gas) to indirect medium high (about 425 F)
    4. Rinse off salmon (if it hasn’t been done already, debone fillet)
    5. Place salmon on board, drizzle with olive oil, flavour with salt and pepper. Place dill, onion and lemon across the top of it.
    6. Place plank over indirect heat, allow to cook for about 20 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temp of 134 F.
    7. While salmon is cooking, make Lemon Dijon sauce: heat butter and saute onions and garlic, don’t brown.
    8. Add Dijon mustard, lemon juice (sans seeds!) and honey. Whisk together and allow to thicken.
    9. Once the sauce is brought to a gentle simmer add green onions and dill, allow to simmer for 2-3 min
    10. Remove sauce from heat.
    11. Once salmon is done, remove from heat, serve fish right on cedar plank. Serve Lemon Dijon sauce on the side.

    We served this with wild rice and a fresh salad… a great summer meal! Serves 4.

  12. Cucumber Salmon clam alike’s
    A delightfully refreshing puff

    ½ lb. Fresh Wild Alaskan salmon steak grilled to perfection
    1 tsp. lemon zest for salmon seasoning
    1 tsp garlic powder for salmon seasoning
    1 tsp. Fresh dill for salmon seasoning
    1 Large Cucumber (seedless) Peeled and graded.
    2 c. Sour Cream
    2 tsp. Lemon Juice
    ½ tsp. Kosher Salt
    1/8 tsp. Pepper
    1/8 tsp. Dill
    1/8 tsp. Garlic
    5 to 6 black olives cut into very small pieces to make eyes
    25 to 30 empty cream puffs. You can use store bought. I usually make them they are pretty easy if you make home made follow any standard recipe. But when getting ready for a party sometimes there is just simply not enough time. So store bought is fine.

    Preheat grill on medium. Place salmon on grill. Season the salmon with 2 tablespoons soft butter and then top with zest, garlic and dill. Close the lid on the grill and cook until done firm to touch about 5 minutes or so. Do not over cook! Remove salmon and let cool. Now to make the filling first Peel cucumber, cut in half and with a spoon scrap out the little seeds. Then in a food processor put ½ of the cucumber and make into paste. Pour that into a medium bowl. Then rough chop the other half leaving pieces add that to your bowl Next mix sour cream, Lemon juice, kosher salt, pepper, dill and garlic. Stir by hand to mix. Now break up the salmon and place salmon in the food processor for about 15 to 30 seconds you want it well broken up but not mush. Then add salmon to sauce mixture and fold in until mixed completely then put into refrigerator. Let chill at least 4 hours the longer the better. I chill over night. Now using a pastry bag with an extra large star tip. Open the puff making a ridged design with filling, fill with about 1 + tablespoons of filling. You want more to be at the opening so it looks like a clam. Using the cut up black olive place tiny pieces on filling to look like eyes.Serve on large tray garnish with lemon slice twists and lime zest

  14. Mark’s Dutch Oven Blackened Salmon on Veggie Rice

    2x 12” Dutch Ovens

    20+ coals beneath each one

    • 1 Tbsp cumin
    • 1 Tbsp crushed coriander
    • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
    • 1 Tbsp coarse ground black pepper
    • 1 Tbsp thyme
    • 2 Tbsp paprika
    • 2 Tbsp salt
    • 1 tsp oregano

    • 4-6 salmon fillets

    Mix all the spices in a ziplock bag. Add the fillets and shake them all to coat thoroughly. Remove them, cover them, and let them sit for 30+ minutes.

    • ¼ lb smoked sausage
    • 1 onion
    • 2 tbsp minced garlic
    • 1 cup rice
    • 2 cups chicken stock
    • 2 sweet peppers (I used half each of red, yellow, orange, and green, for color)

    Put the coals under one of the dutch ovens and brown the onions, garlic, and sausage with a bit of oil in the bottom of the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and cover. Cook until the rice is done.

    Put the other dutch oven over the coals, with some oil coating the bottom, and let it heat up very hot. Put the salmon in the dutch oven for two mintues, then turn over for two more minutes. Remove the dutch oven from the coals and let the residual heat cook the fish.

    Serve the salmon on the bed of rice.

  15. Sweet Curried Salmon

    This is easy and fast. For each salmon fillet, use 1 Tb. brown sugar and 1 Tb.
    curry powder.

    Place salmon skin side down on a greased baking dish, rub top with mixture of sugar and curry.

    Bake at 300 until done.

  16. Sweet cedar plank roasted salmon served with Saute asparagus and garlic scapes, and fresh herb salad. Serves 4

    24 oz. boneless salmon filet with skin cut into 4 portions. Wild Alaskan King is the best.

    2 Large cedar planks pre-soaked for at least 1 hour in cold water.

    1/4 or less dark brown suger (raw also works, but decrease the amount)
    1-2 tsp. sea salt
    fresh cracked pepper.

    For Salmon, combine sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub misxture gently on top of salmon filets. Use more or less for desired sweetness level. Put on planks with plenty of room between filets. Then put on grill.
    24 asparagus or about 1 lb. As fresh as you can find. (ideal is cut that morning and this you can find at Farmer’s Markets in early May.

    1/2 lb. Garlic Scapes (the early growth of a garlic bulb. Found at grocery stores in spring time). Washed and chopped into bite-size pieces.
    olive oil
    fresh baby lettuce
    lots of fresh leafy herbs (basil, tarragon, chervil, dill, oregano, and even nasturtium flowers) chopped coarsely to make up 1/4 of the salad greens.
    1/4 – 1/2 cup dried cherries
    pecorino romano cheese shaved
    2 Tbsp – white balsamic vinegar
    1 Tbspolive oil
    2 tsp. dijon mustard
    2 tsp.honey

    For Salmon:
    Cook on a medium high heat bed of coals covered for 10 minutes or less.

    Remove salmon from planks with a spatula. Skin will adhere to planks so removal is easy.

    For asapargus:
    wash and trim asparagus and garlic scapes. Over low heat bring a bit of oil to temp–enough just to keep asparagus from sticking. bring up heat to make the point where a water drop dances on the pan. Add garlic scapes and asparagus and cook for about 8 minutes or until the asparagus are bright green. Watch the garlic so it is still tender–not crispy.

    For salad:
    combine greens and cherries in a large bowl. Combine liquid ingredients in a separate dish and whisk until blended. Cut any tartness with a pinch of salt. Toss salad and gently mix in pecorino shavings.

    Serve three dishes together and with warm crusty ciabatta bread.


    Combine sugar, salt and pepper, and gently rub on top of salmon filets.

  18. Here is my recipe for a super yummy dish!!

    Salmon with Creamed Leeks
    (per serving)

    • 1 Leek
    • 1 1/2 tbsp Olive oil
    • 1/3 lb Salmon filet
    • 1 Lemon slice
    • 1 Shallot, chopped
    • 1/3 cup White wine
    • ¼ cup Crème fraiche
    • ¼ tsp Lemon zest
    • Salt and pepper

    1. Turn oven on to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Trim the dark green part off of the leeks leaving only the white and light green leaves. Also trim off the other end’s roots. Cut the leek in half length-wise. Then cut width-wise into centimeter-wide pieces. Place these pieces into a colander or strainer and rinse under water to rid all dirt. Shake excess water off of leeks.
    3. Place leeks into an oven proof omelet pan (8” or larger) and toss with 1 tbsp olive oil.
    4. Place pan in oven and roast leeks for about 20 minutes. This may take longer for more than one serving. The leeks are ready once they begin to brown.
    5. As leeks are roasting, place salmon on a tin foil sheet that is large enough to wrap the fish. Rub remaining olive oil onto fish and surrounding tin foil that will touch the fish once wrapped (including underneath the fish). Place the lemon slice on top of the filet and finish it with some salt and pepper. Now loosely wrap the salmon with the tin foil like a package. Place the wrapped salmon in the middle of a baking sheet.
    6. Place salmon in oven and let cook for about 12 minutes. Generally, it should bake 35-40 minutes per pound of fish. When the fish is cooked, carefully un-wrap the tin foil and discard the lemon slice.
    7. The leeks will likely finish roasting around when the fish is finished baking. Once the leeks begin browning, remove them from the oven and place the pan on the stove over medium heat. Add the chopped shallot and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
    8. Add the wine to the leeks and let reduce to half. Then mix in the crème fraiche and lemon zest. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    9. Place the salmon filet on serving dish and top off with the leeks.

  20. Grilled Wild Coho Salmon with Honey Balsamic & Fresh Herb Entree

    2 1/2 pound fresh coho salmon, fillet
    1 teaspoon sea salt
    1 teaspoon black pepper, ground

    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed
    2 sprigs fresh rosemary leaves
    2 cloves garlic
    1/3 cup honey
    4 cups field greens

    Cut salmon into four equal portions. Season salmon portions with sea salt, black pepper. Place salmon portions into a large food safe plastic storage bag.

    In the bowl of a food processor combine extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, balsamic vinegar, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. Process ingredients a half minute until mixed. Pour mixture into the bag with salmon portions next add honey. Seal the bag and place salmon into refrigerator one hour.

    Preheat Gas Grill or grill pan to high medium.

    To cook salmon place marinated salmon fillets onto a preheated grill. Cook four minutes each side. Tip Turning only once during grilling time will yield a tender juciy center and nice grilled outer crust.

    Remove salmon from grill. Serve over a bed of fresh field greens. Serve immediately. Makes four servings.

    tip wild salmon works best as the taste from the wild as opposed to farm raised is more intense and complimentary when meshed in with marinade.

    I was inspired to develop this recipe while visiting Lapland in northern Finland. In this area around the Arctic Circle the fresh caught salmon is a mouthwatering treat. Along with the rye and wild mushrooms, this salmon recipe is a delicious reminder of my travels in Scandinavia!



    1-1/4 pound whole, skinned Salmon fillet
    2/3 cup rye flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    1 egg plus 1 egg white
    3 Tablespoons unsalted butter


    1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
    1 cup thinly sliced small cremini mushrooms
    1 cup halved small cherry tomatoes
    1 Tablespoon minced flat leaf parsley
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
    1 Tablespoon snipped fresh chives

    1. For fish: Cut fish into 4-6 serving size pieces. In a pie tin or other container, toss together the rye flour, salt, and pepper. In another container, beat together the egg and egg white. Dip fillets first into egg, then dredge in flour mixture. Heat the 3 Tablespoons butter over medium-high heat in large skillet. Add prepared fillets and cook 3-4 minutes per side, depending on thickness, or until fish is tender and coating is nicely browned.

    2. While fish is cooking, prepare topping. Melt 1 Tablespoon butter in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes. Stir in cherry tomatoes, parsley, salt, and lemon pepper. Saute another minute or until tomatoes are just heated. Spoon some mixture atop each fillet and sprinkle each with some snipped chives and serve. Serves 4-6.

    The recipe was inspired by a trip to the Arctic Circle in Finland so I thought I’d include a picture from the actual “circle”! It was fun to leap over into and out of the Arctic but even more fun to devour their delicious salmon!

  23. PAN ROASTED WILD SALMON with Porcinis and Fiddlehead Ferns**

    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    For the salmon:
    Heat the truffle butter in a 12-inch sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the salmon, garlic and herbs. Cook 2-1/2 minutes, turn, reduce heat to medium-low and cook another 3-1/2 minutes basting frequently. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm…(Fish should be cooked a total of 10 minutes per inch of thickness)….

    For the Porcini: In a large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until golden-brown (if using reconstituted mushrooms, dry on a stack of paper towels before cooking). Add remaining ingredients and season with salt/pepper to taste; keep warm.

    In a large pot bring 2 quarts water and 1 Tablespoon salt to a boil. Fill a medium bowl halfway with ice water. Drop the fiddleheads into the pot and cook for 1 minute. Drain the fiddleheads in a colander, then submerge in the ice water until completely cool. Let the fiddleheads drain well in a colander and wrap them in a clean kitchen towel to dry.

    Arrange 2 slices of Prosciutto on each of 6 room temperature plates.

    Put the truffle butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the fiddleheads and toss gently, adding 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Heat for a minute or two until they are warm, then divide the fiddleheads among the 6 plates. Place the salmon on top of the fiddleheads and spoon the mushrooms and juices on top. Garnish with fresh herbs and Serve at once.

    Note: If fiddlehead ferns are not available, substitute baby spinach leaves or pea tendrils….

    There are few ingredients as succulent and tasty as wild caught salmon. I belong to the Tyee Club of British Columbia where one of my life’s biggest thrills was to catch a 47-1/2 Pound King (Tyee) Salmon on a 10 pound test line, with an artificial lure having no barbs. It took 2-1/2 Hours to land the fish. Unfortunately the dumping of tailings from mining and pollutants from industry, have destroyed many of the natural salmon sponing grounds, and most fish are either hatchery or farm raised now. My recipe incorporates natural ingredients that enhance the delicate flavour of the salmon….using Marx available ingredients. Salmon is not only tasty but enriched with healthy vitamins and oils…Wild salmon, one of our greater gifts for our dining pleasure! ENJOY!!

    Salmon with Minty Miso Glaze

    1 Tbs toasted sesame seeds ground with mortar and pestle
    2 Tbs white miso
    2 Tbs mirin
    1 tsp dark brown sugar
    1.5 Tbs mint finely minced
    1 Tbs cilantro finely minced
    1 clove garlic finely minced

    2-4 salmon fillets

    Whisk the sesame seeds, miso, mirin, and sugar together with a fork (you might need to use the back of the fork to mash up the miso a little first). Add the mint, cilantro and garlic stir to combine.

    If you’re BBQing, get your fire going and make sure you have a cooler area of the fire to put the fish on.

    If you’re using the broiler, put your oven rack in the middle of the oven and turn the broiler on high. Get a pan with a wire rack on top ready (I just use a shelf out of the toaster oven on top of a baking sheet).

    Just before you’re ready to throw the salmon in the oven, give it a nice thick coating of glaze, especially on top (the meat side). Place the salmon, on the rack, skin side down.

    Cook until the glaze is nice and brown and the salmon is just barely translucent at it’s thickest part 7-12 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon and the temperature of your heat source. If the glaze starts to burn before the salmon is done, lay a piece of foil on top of the salmon.

    2/3 cup fresh orange juice
    4 tablespoons cider vinegar
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 drops hot sauce
    6 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

    Salmon Cakes
    1/2 cup onion
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 chili pepper, seeded, minced
    1 tablespoon butter
    1/2 cup chopped scallions
    1 pound cooked fresh salmon, flaked
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    4 tablespoons mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1 cup bread crumbs, divided
    1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
    1/4 cup canola or safflower oil

    In a small pan, cook all ingredients until thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve over salmon cakes.

    Salmon Cakes
    Sauté the onion, garlic, and chili pepper lightly in the butter until the onion is translucent. Combine the scallion mixture, salmon, egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, orange juice, salt, white and black pepper, and 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs into a bowl and coat the salmon patties on all sides. Put the salmon cakes on a plate, cover, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up.

  26. Smoked Salmon Rolls

    Ideal for a sushi party!

    Nori – at least 12 sheets
    Sushi Rice (recipe below)
    Smoked salmon (recipe below)
    A variety of raw veggies including:
    Bell peppers
    Pea pods
    Green onions
    Tofu (fried or plain)
    “Red Rooster” Sriracha sauce
    Sesame seeds mixed with toasted nori (to sprinkle)
    Soy sauce
    Pickled ginger

    Wild Salmon Fillets
    Brown Sugar
    Sea Salt

    To smoke the salmon. Make a light rub of brown sugar and sea salt (go easy on the salt). Hot smoke the salmon until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. If you don’t have a smoker or the time, store bought will do the trick.

    Calrose Sticky Rice

    Make the rice according to package directions. Per two cups of raw rice, simmer 1/3 cup vinegar, 2 TBSP sugar, and 1 ½ tsp. salt until dissolved. Mix into the cooked rice.

    Mix Sriracha sauce with mayo and a little sugar.

    Make an omelet (with a little flour and sugar in the egg mixture) and once it’s cool, cut into thin strips.

    The key? Smoke the salmon, make the rice, sauce, omelet, and chop the veggies. Once your friends arrive give them a couple of cold Sapporo’s and let them roll away. All the ingredients will not fit in one roll, so it’s ideal to mix it up using only a few items at a time.

    Start with a thin layer of sticky rice spread over the nori, then at one end make a line of smoked salmon and a few other ingredients. Roll it up as tightly as possible and seal with hot water. It’s always fun and interactive for everyone to make their own rolls. And if you’re feeling a lively have Sake on hand too!

    To slice the salmon rolls, dip a good sharp knife in hot water between cuts.

    Have soy, wasabi, pickled ginger and extra Sriracha sauce for dipping.

  27. Wild Salmon is Worth the Wait

    Less is more. This is a fitting description for my feelings regarding eating salmon. I prefer to eat salmon only when it is wild and fresh. This means getting the chance to eat salmon much less often and at a far greater cost then farmed salmon but the flavor of a nice piece of wild salmon makes it worth the wait and expense. I recently was lucky enough to to some fresh wild salmon from British Columbia and prepared it with great veggies from the Farmer’s Market at the College of San Mateo.

    Pan Seared Wild Salmon with Potato Hash and Asparagus


    4 six-once wild salmon filets, bone-out and skin-on
    1 bunch medium red or yellow beets with green tops attached
    2 medium size leeks
    1 pound small yukon gold creamers
    4 pieces good-quality bacon
    1 bunch asparagus
    1 small shallot
    2 T heavy cream
    1 T unsalted butter
    salt and pepper
    Optional: 1/2 cup dry white wine

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees

    1. Roast the beets. Remove the greens on top of beets. Discard any greens that do not look fresh, wash the rest and set aside. Rinse the beets and scrub off any dirt before patting them dry and placing them in a glass pyrex casserole dish. Rub the beat with a little olive oil and season generously with salt. Add 1/2 cup of very hot water to baking dish and quickly cover with aluminion foil. Place in the middle of the preheated oven and bake for 50 minutes. Using a wooden skewer or small knife check that the beets are done and allow to cool for 5 minutes. When the beets are still hot peel the skin and cut each beat into about 8 pieces.

    2. Parboil the Potatoes. I great technique for preparing potatoes for a hash is to first parboil them first. Clean the potatoes by scrubbing them under running water and then place in a medium size pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat. When the water comes to a rolling boil lower the heat slightly and keep a close eye on the potatoes. It is crucial that they are not cooked all the way but rather that they are al dente and have some resistance when pierced with a knife. Strain potatoes and allow to cool by spreading out on a baking sheet. If you think you have cooked them a little too long then quickly put the baking sheet in the fridge to help the them cool down faster. When the potatoes have cooled completely, cut each one into a large dice and set aside.

    3. Caramelize the leeks. Cut off the dark green part of the leeks and discard or compost. Dice the leeks into thin 1/4″ pieces and place in a large bowl of cold water. Shake the leeks to wash off the dirt and then strain through a colander and allow to drip dry. Over very low heat heat the butter with 1 T olive oil and add the leeks when the butter is almost completely melted. Keep the heat very low and cook the leeks for about 30 minutes, stirring about every 5 minutes. When finished they should be just browned and very soft. Set aside.

    4. Cook the Salmon. If you turned off the over after roasting the beets make sure it is preheated again to 375 degrees. Season both sides of the salmon fillets with salt and black pepper. Heat about 1 T olive oil in a saute pan over high heat until the the oil is smoking steadily. Carefully place the fillets skin side up in the pan and sear for roughly a minute and a half. The idea is not to disturb the fillets as they sear so that they develop a nice brown crush. Flip the fillets over to the skin side and continue cooking for another 30 seconds. At this point the salmon is ready to be finished in the over and if you want add the 1/2 cup of white wine to the pan before it goes into the oven. The wine will help keep the fish moist as it roasts. The time in the over entirely depends on how you like your salmon and the thickness of the fillet. If the fillet is of average thickness and you want medium go for about 6 to 7 minutes in the oven.

    5. Finishing. When the salmon go into the oven, heat 1 T olive oil in a large saute pan over heat heat. When the oil is starting to smoke add the parboiled potatoes and stir frequently to prevent sticking. When the potatoes have browned add the roasted beets, caramelized leeks, and heavy cream. Continue cooking until the cream has evaporated- about 30 seconds.

  29. Spectacular Salmon Mousse

    This mousse is creamy, dreamy and delicious.


    1 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    1 cup mayonnaise
    2 packages unflavored Knox Gelatin
    1/4 c. warm water
    1 can cream of celery soup
    3 stalks minced celery
    1 medium onion, minced
    1 8 oz. can RED salmon or 8 oz. poached fresh salmon


    • Mix cream cheese, mayo, salmon, onion and celery in a mixing bowl.

    • Beat cream cheese mixture at medium high speed about 3-4 minutes. The more air in the mix, the lighter the mousse.

    • In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in warm water. Set aside.

    • Heat soup until hot, but not boiling.

    • Remove from heat and mix gelatin into soup.

    • Add soup mixture into cream cheese mixture. And blend well.

    • Pour into a mold and chill for several hours or overnight.

    • Unmold and serve with crackers, crudités, etc.

    Note: It is helpful to spread a little mayo around the mold before you pour in the mousse. This prevents the mousse from sticking. To unmold, gently slide a sharp knife cut around the perimeter of the mousse. Then, set the mold in a shallow pan filled with warm water for a few minutes. This should do the trick. If the mousse does stick, just scoop it out and mix it in a bowl and call it salmon dip!

    * Slices of Lemon
    * Parchment Paper or Tin Foil
    * Rock Salt
    * Pepper
    * Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    What to do:

    1. Lay your salmon skin side down on the parchment paper. Scatter your veggies around it.
    2. Sprinkle some rock salt and freshly ground pepper all over your fish and veggies.
    3. Squeeze a bit of lemon on top and drizzle about 1 – 2 tablespoons of your anise-flavored liquor over the salmon and veggies.
    4. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top of everything.
    5. Top your salmon with 2 or 3 thinly slices pieces of lemon
    6. Make your pouch by taking the two ends together and fold over a few times until there’s about 1 inch of room on top of the salmon. Pinch the other ends in and then fold towards the center seam to create a closed, tight “pouch”. (SEE PICTURES ON OUR WEBSITE).
    7. Put in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove, open pouch and voila – dinner’s ready! Eat along side some boiled potatoes (boiled long enough that they still have a bit of ‘give’ in them) topped with some rocksalt olive oil and chives.

    Serves 6
    1-1/2 Pounds Marx Salmon Fillets (any variety)
    Juice and zest from 2 limes
    4 Tablespoons Marx Truffle Olive Oil
    1 Red Onion, peeled and thinly sliced
    4 Coves garlic, peeled and minced
    2 Cups sliced Marx Morel Mushrooms

    Put the salmon in a non-reactive bowl with the lime juice and zest; toss well, cover and let marinate 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, use 1 Tablespoon of the oil to grease six 8-ounce Ramekins. Heat the broiler to high. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium heat and sauté the onion slices for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the garlic and mushrooms and continue sautéing, stirring frequently 3-5 minutes or until the mushrooms begin to give up their juices. Divide the onion mixture among the ramekins.

    Using a slotted spoon, remove the salmon cubes from the marinade and place them in a clean bowl. Add the tarragon and cream and season with salt/pepper to taste; mix gently.

    Spoon the salmon mixture into the ramekins and top with the grated cheese. Place the ramekins in a baking pan or on a baking sheet and broil 5-6 minutes or until the salmon is cooked and the cheese is golden brown and bubbling. Serve immediately with crusty French Bread…ENJOY!!

  35. The full Gourmet salmon meal in 10 minutes or less

    2 lbs fresh salmon steaks cut into 4 oz pieces
    1 bottle of Robust Italian dressing
    1 green pepper julienne sliced
    1 red pepper julienne sliced
    1 onion julienne sliced
    1 apple diced and coated with lemon juice
    3 large potatoes diced small
    1/2 lb. mushrooms sliced

    Before you leave for your camping trip in a large freezer zip lock bag add all of the above ingredients except cheese. The meal will marinate while driving to your destination. After setting up camp make a fire. Evenly divided the above ingredients into your hot iron or as I call it a hobo pie maker. Cook in fire for about 4 minutes on each side, then turn again for an additional 1 to 3 minutes on each side. Then plate and eat. This makes about 8 servings. It is wonderful that first night to have a gourmet meal, with all the food groups. Everyone is tired from the drive and setting up.It is great that you had no prep except for what was done at home. It can be made the day before you leave. I also do this with shrimp. The best part of this recipe is clean up is a breeze. Because of the oil in the dressing the iron is a snap to clean and the rest is paper so throw it away!! Gourmet in 10 minutes or less

  45. Misoyaki Salmon

    I know misoyaki butterfish aka black cod has been popular recently, but at $16 a pound that’s waaaay too rich for my blood. Since lil’ sis and I are huge fans of salmon, and since the salmon was on sale, I figured misoyaki salmon would be mighty tasty. The key is to let the fish marinate for a day or two in a zipped plastic bag to absorb all the flavors. As I do a lot more Chinese cooking than Japanese cooking, I’ve substituted xiao hsing rice wine for mirin. And I don’t have sake on hand either. I also find miso paste to be quite strong and salty so I don’t use a whole lot. And ha! is this really misoyaki anything then, you’re wondering? Well, I am using miso. 😛 As with all recipes, I adjust depending on what I’ve got in my cupboards and for my tastebuds, so you should make adjustments for yours. 😛

    Misoyaki Salmon
    Adapted from Kirk of Mmm-yoso’s recipe for misoyaki black cod. It’s well worth checking out as Kirk has a great discussion of various types of miso paste and sake in his recipe.

    For 1 large salmon filet, you’ll need:

    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup xiao hsing rice wine, or mirin if you have it, or regular white wine if you don’t
    1/4 cup miso paste
    2 tblsp sugar
    1 tblsp soy sauce

    Dump all ingredients into a bowl and stir until the miso paste is no longer clumpy. Place salmon in a Ziploc bag and pour in mixture. Seal tightly and refrigerate for several days, flipping over the bag after 1 day. If you don’t want to marinate it for so long, then marinate for at least an hour each side.

    When you’re ready to cook, turn oven to 450 degrees and bake salmon on center rack for 5 to 8 minutes. Cooking time depends on size of filet and oven so I can’t give an exact time frame for you. Just check after five minutes and if the fish is mostly raw, estimate more time. Don’t cook until completely done, but when the center is still a bit translucent.

    Then turn the oven to broil for 2 to 3 minutes until the top is golden.

    You can’t tell by the picture but this filet was huge, roughly 6-inches all around. I left it on the kitchen counter and when I got home, lil’ sis had already eaten half of it.

    Serve with rice.

  54. This is excerpted from an article I wrote for Suite101.com on making lox from wild Alaskan King Salmon:
    It is based on the recipe and technique in Saveur but departs enough that I’m comfortable offering it here with attribution, of course.

    Recipes and Variations

    A combination of science and art, as usual, produces the best results. Often new cooks will adhere carefully to the exact letter of a recipe. If it’s a first attempt, that’s not necessarily bad advice. Once you’ve acquired some confidence in the kitchen, some trust in your palate, you can find great joy in improvisation.

    No fresh dill? Why go out in the rain? Think of your own taste memories and what flavors complement salmon. Find the Saveur recipe here. (There’s also a great chart describing and different varieties with pictures of each.) Today’s Variation on the Theme – Lox du Jour

    Grind together in a small food processor:

    * 1 TBSP white peppercorns
    * ~ 1 TBSP green peppercorns
    * ~ 1 TBSP cubeb peppercorns
    * 1 TBSP fennel seeds
    * 1 TBSP caraway seeds
    * 5 juniper berries
    * 1 tsp coriander seeds
    * 2/3 C smoked kosher salt*
    * 1/3 C sugar

    Pat over salmon filet, then drizzle on:

    * 1/3 C absinthe

    Wrap in plastic, place in zip top bag. Turn, massage a little. Weight it if you like. Use or omit the alcohol. 48-72 hours are recommended. Salmon will be firm to the touch. See how forgiving a recipe can be?

    While still hot lay a nice thick slice of fresh buffalo mozzarella on top.

    Stack a nice thick slice of your favorite ripe summer tomato on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with a bit of sea salt.

    Place a small scoop of basil ice cream on top. (recipe below)

    Drizzle with Balsamic syrup (heat 1 cup balsamic vinegar with a tablespoon of sugar and reduce till its a syrup.)

    Basil Ice Cream.
    To make a small batch add 1 cup heavy cream, 1 tsp sugar, zest of a lemon, handful of fresh basil, 1 pinch of sea salt, 1 tablespoon really good extra virgin olive oil to a blender. Blend till its thick almost like butter. Freeze in ice cube trays for an hour or so.

  57. 1 pound Salmon fillet with skin
    1 cup shredded red cabbage
    1 cup shredded green cabbage
    (both cabbages shredded and on sale now at Trader Joe’s!)
    2 Tablespoons plain Greek Yogurt (Soy Yogurt good too)
    2 Tablespoons cranraisins (regular raisins good too)
    2 Tablespoons (about a dozen full halves) pecans crumbled
    1/8-1/4 teaspoon curry (to taste)
    1 full head of garlic (large cloves prefered)
    olive oil

    Before cooking salmon (which cooks fast, so don’t forget it!), mix together both cabbages, yogurt, crainraisins and curry.

    (A little fresh fennel chopped in is good, but just a little as the taste can overwhelm, or add some jicama!)

    Put in frig to chill. Best if done night before. Sprinkle with pecans just before serving or they will get chewy.

    Just before cooking salmon, take full garlic head, leaving cloves in tact, and cut off top so that tip of each clove is exposed. Drizzle on olive oil and bake with roots down and exposed clove tips up for about 45 minutes in 400 oven — toaster oven ok.

    While cooking garlic, rub olive oil on skin side of fillet. Turn it over and drizzle some oil oil.

    When garlic is done, use knife to dip inside cloves (no need to peel, they should be consistency of applebutter) and spread on top of salmon fillet (not skin side) to taste — I like to coat it!

    Place skin side down on outdoor grill or on ridged broiler pan that has been preheated. Important that it’s ridged to let air get under and make skin crunchy/crispy.

    Cook just off flame on grill or under the broiler for about 5-8 minutes, depending on your preference. I like tips of fish and some garlic to be blackened. Flake with fork to check for doneness in thickest part of fish.

    Mix nuts into chilled salad, scoop on plates and top with nice piece of fillet. I like to crunch the skin, but you can remove it first if you don’t care for it.

    I also love curry flavor, so often sprinkly more curry on fish before cooking.

  58. Wild Salmon Melts

    by Wardeh Harmon

    Part 1: Make the Wild Salmon Salad

    * 2 cans wild caught salmon (smoked or plain)
    * 1/4 cup finely diced onions
    * 1/4 cup chopped olives
    * 1 teaspoon dill
    * sea salt, to taste
    * black pepper, to taste
    * extra virgin olive oil, a generous drizzle
    * balsamic vinegar, a splash

    Drain wild salmon. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl. Mix together, but leave chunky. Adjust seasonings to taste. Chill and prepare the Four Grain Flatbreads (following).

    Part 2: Make the Four Grain Flatbreads

    Makes about 20 cakes

    * 1 cup brown rice flour
    * 1 cup buckwheat flour
    * 1 cup corn flour
    * 1 cup quinoa flakes
    * 1 teaspoon sea salt
    * 3-1/2 to 4 cups filtered water
    * grapeseed oil for the pan

    Combine all dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Add water to dry ingredients and mix well. Let stand for about 15 minutes to thicken. Batter should be thick.

    Meanwhile, preheat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat.

    Add a smidge of oil to the pan and spread it out. Pour batter into prepared pan using a 1/4-cup scoop. Let cook on that side until bubbles appear in the center and bottom is golden brown, then turn over with spatula. Allow to cook on second side for about 30 seconds, or until browned. Repeat for all the remaining dinner cakes, adding more oil as needed.

    Transfer each cooked cake to a cooling rack. If put in a covered container, the breads will get mushy from condensation.

    Part 3: Make the Melts

    * Wild Salmon Salad
    * Four Grain Flatbreads
    * shredded raw goat cheddar cheese

    Under the broiler of the oven or in a counter-top toaster oven, toast both sides of each flatbread to be served. Spread each with wild salmon salad and then top with shredded goat cheese. Put back under the broiler until cheese is melted and browned. Serve immediately.

    Store unused flatbreads in an airtight container.

  71. Salmon with Toasted Garlic and Pine Nuts over Angel Hair Pasta

    This recipe can be easily put together despite that it is made in three separate parts. It’s excellent with or without the pine nuts, so if you don’t have any on hand, feel free to skip them. Altogether, this takes about half an hour of preparation, and then you have a lovely meal to enjoy.

    Serves 4


    8 oz. whole wheat angel hair pasta

    1 lb wild-caught salmon fillets
    2 pinches Kosher salt
    freshly ground black pepper

    3 tbsp olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    1/4 cup pine nuts
    1 tsp salt plus 2 tsps

    Cherry or grape tomatoes
    Parsley sprigs


    Prepare pasta according to package instructions, adding 2 tsps salt to pasta water.

    Turn on broiler.

    Cut salmon fillets into 4 portions. Wash and pat dry. Place skin side down on a baking sheet and sprinkle with Kosher salt and few grinds black pepper. Broil for 7-8 minutes until fish flakes when you turn a fork in it. Check it every couple of minutes because the length of time salmon should be cooked is dependent on the thickness of your fillets. This time measure is for a fillet less than one inch thick. Once cooked, peel and discard skin from bottom of fillets and set fillets aside.

    While salmon cooks, heat olive oil in a large sautee pan over Medium to Medium Low heat. Place garlic in pan and sautee for 1-2 minutes. As the garlic begins to change color (darken), add the pine nuts. Cook until pine nuts turn golden brown. Add salt and remove from heat.

    When pasta is cooked, drain but reserve 1/4 cup pasta water. Place pasta and water into sautee pan with garlic and pine nuts. Toss together gently.

    Serve topped with salmon fillets. Garnish with parsley and cherry or grape tomatoes. Enjoy!

  82. Tropical Island Slow Cooked Salmon

    If I were stuck on a deserted tropical island with an oven, this is what I would make. On a deserted tropical island, life seems to stand still, there’s no crinkly shirts to iron, no snarly traffic and most importantly, no alarm clocks or Microsoft Outlook. You’ve got time and you’ve got plenty of fish. I’m going to teach you about the magic of low ‘n slow tropical island salmon.

    The concept is simple.

    When you cook fish on high heat – the proteins immediately seize up – which is why it’s so easy to overcook fish, and end up with dry, chalky and tough piece of seafood. I mean, if you were set on a blazing hot bed of coals, you’d seize up too, screaming, “HOLY SH** THAT’S HOT!”

    Now…lets think sauna…jacuzzi…You see, gentle cooking breaks DOWN the meat, giving it a chance to relax…chill out…have a margherita….get a tan. For fish, low and slow creates the most dreamy, silky-smooth, melt in your mouth texture. And the surprise…the cooking is so gentle that the fully cooked salmon looks almost EXACTLY like it did before cooking.

    serves 4

    4 (6oz) salmon filets
    2 tablespoons honey
    1 1/2 tsp sea salt
    freshly ground black pepper
    1 orange, sliced into 1/8″
    1 onion, sliced into 1/8″
    2 teaspoons minced fresh mint
    2 tablespoons crushed macadamia nuts

    Brush honey on salmon, season with salt and pepper and let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes. <- important. Otherwise the time in the oven will be devoted to un-chilling your salmon, instead of cooking it.

    Preheat your oven to 250F. Grab a pan big enough to hold all fillets in single layer. Alternate slices of oranges and onions to make a “bed” for the salmon.

    2. Place the salmon fillets on the bed. Cook for 30 minutes. To test for doneness, stick a sharp paring knife into thickest part of fish, if it goes in an out very easily, its done. Even if you leave it in the oven for an extra few minutes, don’t worry, it is impossible to overcook the salmon this way….unless you, uh, leave it in the oven for a week.

    3. Top with mint and macadamia nuts. After cooking, the salmon is going to look almost exactly the same as when you first put it in. Don’t worry, after 30 minutes in the oven it is cooked.

  83. Shrimp and Salmon Cakes with a Spicy Dipping Sauce


    6 oz salmon fillet, boned and skinned
    6 oz raw shrimp, shelled
    7 dried shiitake mushrooms
    2 eggs
    1 slice cooked bacon, crumbled
    1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or sherry
    1 tablespoon oyster sauce
    1 teaspoon soy sauce
    1/4 cup cabbage shredded
    1/4 cup green onions, minced
    1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
    4 tablespoons oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch
    cornstarch for dredging


    In a small bowl, soak shiitake mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes and slice thinly. Meanwhile, roughly chop raw shrimp and salmon together. In a large bowl, mix the salmon and shrimp with the shiitake mushrooms, soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine, cabbage, green onions, salt, white and black pepper, ginger, bacon, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Separate one of the eggs, reserve the egg yolk, and stir the egg whites into the fish mixture. Stir well and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a large (nonstick, if possible) saute pan. Put some corn starch on a plate and some panko on another plate. Beat the egg yolk with the remaining egg in a small wide bowl. Form the shrimp mixture into about five 3 to 4 oz flattened patties. Dredge each patty in the cornstarch on both sides, dip into the beaten egg, and then pat into the panko. Fry each patty for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towel lines plates and serve with the optional dipping sauce, recipe below:

    Dipping Sauce:
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
    1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
    1 tablespoon horseradish

    Mix well and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes to let flavors mingle.


    First, make the sauce:

    1 stick unsalted butter
    2 garlic cloves, sliced
    1/4 C. soy sauce
    2 T. American-style mustard
    1 T. ketchup
    1 T. Worchestershire sauce

    Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Simmer until the butter is melted and the flavors are well blended, about 15 minutes.

    In the meantime, start your grill. We use a charcoal Weber, but I guess you could use a gas grill, just as long as it has a cover. When the coals are HOT, brush the top of a large salmon fillet with a generous amount of sauce. Put the salmon skin side down on the grill and cover. Cook for 8 -10 minutes (we like ours on the medium rare side). Uncover the grill and slide large spatula between the skin and the meat. Leaving the skin on the grill, remove it onto a platter.

  94. Grilled Asparagus and Wild Salmon Salad with Spiced Honey Vinaigrette

    Some things just go together. You know, like peanut butter and jelly, Bogey and Bacall or burgers and fries; Asparagus and Salmon just go together. This salad is the first thing I make when asparagus are in season in the supermarket or farmer’s market. Be sure to not overcook the asparagus-tender crisp is best. The salmon can be served warm or chilled-either way it’s a treat.

    Spiced Honey Vinaigrette:
    1/4 cup honey
    1 tablespoon red pepper flavored extra virgin olive oil*
    2 tablespoon lime juice
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/4 teaspoon ancho chili powder
    1 teaspoon finely chopped shallot
    1/4 teaspoon coarse salt, such as grey salt or sea salt
    Oil to brush the grill
    2 teaspoons red pepper flavored extra virgin olive oil*
    20 asparagus spears
    Salt and pepper to taste
    4 (8 ounce) Wild Salmon filets
    8 cups baby spinach
    1 cup diced grape tomatoes

    *you may substitute regular extra virgin olive oil for the flavored oil

    Preheat a grill to medium high heat.

    For the Spiced Honey Vinaigrette, in a medium sized bowl rapidly whisk together the honey, red pepper flavored oil, lime juice, cayenne pepper, ancho chili powder and the shallot. Stir in the salt then set the vinaigrette aside.

    Drizzle the 2 teaspoons of oil over the asparagus spears. Place the spears directly on the grill rack and cook, turning once or twice, until tender crisp-about 3-4 minutes. Remove the spears from the grill; slice about 2 inches off the ends of each spear. Sprinkle the asparagus tips lightly with salt and pepper. (You can save the ends to make stock if you care to).

    Lightly brush the grill rack with oil. Place the salmon directly on the grill rack skin side down, close the grill and cook for 6 minutes. Using a spatula, flip the fish over and grill for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from the grill and season to taste with the salt and pepper.

    To assemble the salads, divide the spinach between four serving plates mounding it in the center of each. Arrange the grilled asparagus spears, tips up, around the spinach. Divide the tomatoes between each salad.

    Lean the salmon to the side of the spinach. Drizzle each salad and salmon portion with the vinaigrette. Add additional salt if desired and serve immediately.

  95. Sweet Soy Grilled Salmon

    1 c soy sauce

    3/4 c brown sugar

    2 tsp ginger paste

    salt and pepper

    4 6 oz salmon fillets

    Season salmon with salt and pepper. Mix soy sauce and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in ginger paste. Pour in zip-lock bag and place salmon in. Place in refrigerator and let marinade for at least 3 hours.

    Grill to your liking. Seve it up with your favorite grilling sides.

    Note: I like my salmon medium-rare, so I place my fillets over high flame and cook for about 3 1/2 minutes per side.

  96. Grilled Caper Citrus Salmon- it is the BEST!!!

    2 tablespoons olive oil

    2 tablespoon butter

    2 tablespoon Dijon mustard

    3 garlic cloves, minced

    1 teaspoon parsley

    1 teaspoon cilantro

    3 tablespoon capers

    1 ½ tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon or lime juice

    1/8 tsp. of pepper

    3 pounds fresh salmon

    Sauté all ingredients except Salmon over medium heat for five-minutes in a small sauce pan

    Place salmon fillet on a piece of heavy-duty foil sprayed with Pam spray, with edges folded up, to make a pan. I use also a cookie sheet to carry the fish to and from the grill.

    Pour sauce evenly over fish before cooking.

    Place fish on grill in it’s foil pan and cover the grill lid.

    Barbecue over hot coals for 10-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of fillets.

    Bon Appetite!!!

  97. If I were served this plate of food in a restaurant, I would know I was getting a fabulous meal. This is easily one of the top five meals I’ve ever made.

    8 oz fillet of fresh king salmon, skin on, cut into 4oz portions.
    1 TB honey
    1/4 cup wheat-free tamari (or regular soy sauce)
    1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
    1 TB fresh ginger, grated
    2 cloves minced garlic
    1/4 cup sake
    1 large head of bok choi, white and green parts, sliced into 1 inch slices
    sesame oil
    wheat-free tamari (or regular soy sauce)
    1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
    1 clove minced garlic
    1 TB black sesame seeds
    1 cup short grain brown rice
    2 cups water
    1 minced green onion, white and green parts
    black sesame seeds

    marinate salmon in honey, tamari, vinegar, ginger and garlic for about 40 minutes. Remove salmon from marinade and reserve marinade.
    Rinse the rice. Place rice and water in a heavy 2 quart saucepan with a well-fitting lid. Heat on high, uncovered, until it comes to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to very low, and cover with lid. Cook for 40 minutes or until water is absorbed. Keep warm, with lid on, until serving.
    Spray a nonstick pan with a mist of olive oil. Heat pan over medium high heat until quite hot. Place salmon, skin side up, in pan and sear until nicely brown, about 4 minutes. Flip salmon so the skin side is down, and pour in the marinade. Once it starts to simmering, cover the pan and lower the heat to medium. Cook until the sauce is reduced by ½. Add sake and cover again. Simmer for about 3 minute to cook off the alcohol and reduce to a glaze. You want to have a few tablespoons of a nice thick sauce in the pan when you’re done. Don’t overcook it.
    Meanwhile, heat a wok over medium high heat with a drizzle of sesame oil. After you add the sake to the salmon, add the sliced white parts of the bok choi fresh grated ginger, and a clove of minced garlic. When they start to cook, add the leafy green bits and a little tamari. Saute till the green just wilt, and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Remove from heat.
    Flip the salmon skin side up and peel off the skin before serving.
    To serve, place ½ cup brown rice in center of plate. Top with half of the bok choy, and top that with one serving of salmon. Pour half of the sauce from the salmon pan over the salmon, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and garnish with green onion.
    It’s all about mouthfeel on this dish. The bok choi is nicely crunchy, the rice is nutty and chewy, and the salmon practically melts in your mouth. The sauce brings it all together in a way that is balanced and exciting, and gives it a rich flavor without being overly fatty.

    Salmon Souffle

  98. Salmon Snacks

    1 box bagel chips, melba toast, or other hard cracker
    1 package smoked salmon
    spreadable cream cheese (either regular or with chives)
    green onions, olives, tomatoes
    cheese (can be any variety-gouda, feta, goat, cheddar etc.-try several for different tastes)

    This appetizer can also be served as a quick meal. Take any type of hard cracker and spread out on a baking sheet. Spread your choice of cream cheese on top. Take the smoked salmon and place a small amount on each cracker. Due to the smoked salmon being very strong in taste a little goes a long way. On top of the salmon you can place a variety of green onions, olives and tomatoes creating a variety of flavors. Top all crackers with the cheese of your choice. Again try different types for a variety of flavors. Place the baking sheet in the oven with the broiler on low. Watch for the cheese to melt, take out and eat.

  99. Salmon Ravioli with Gorgonzola Sauce

    1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
    10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

    Fresh basil, finely chopped

    1 cup milk
    1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
    2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
    3 ounces Gorgonzola (or other blue cheese), crumbled

    In a medium bowl combine the ricotta, the spinach, the salmon, the yolks, the salt and the pepper. Whisk to blend.

    Place 1 Tablespoon of the filling in the center of a wonton wrapper (keep the remaining wrappers covered so they don’t dry out). Fold the wrapper in half to form a triangle. Pinch the edges to seal. Transfer the ravioli to a large, covered plate. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.

    Add the ravioli to a large pot of simmering water. Cook until tender, about 3 – 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove the ravioli to a large serving platter. Cover platter to keep ravioli warm while preparing sauce.

    In a small saucepan whisk together the milk, the flour and the butter. Bring to a boil and cook until sauce begins to thicken, about 1 minute. Stir in Gorgonzola to combine.

    Spoon sauce over warm ravioli. Sprinkle with Parmesan and basil. Serve immediately.

  103. This soufflé is great for any meal, but if you’re looking for an easy brunch dish, this is it! It is really versatile, as you can “throw in” any flavors you choose, veggies, seasonings, or proteins. And, it can be baked in a casserole dish for large crowds, or individual ramekins for a more intimate meal. The recipe below is for 2 servings – but is really easy to multiply as needed.

    Salmon & Egg Omelet Soufflé
    4 eggs
    1 6-oz. can pink salmon
    3 Tbsp. half/half
    1-2 Tbsp. mixed seasonings of choice- salt, pepper, garlic, chili, & mustard powders
    Pinch each Italian seasoning
    ¼ cup finely grated Gruyere or Swiss Cheese
    ¼ red bell pepper, finely diced
    ¼ yellow bell pepper, finely diced
    1 Tbsp. yellow onion, minced
    2 slices prosciutto

    Preheat oven to 350 ° F. Bake the prosciutto until crispy and set aside.

    In the meantime, stir together the salmon, cheese, peppers, onion, and seasonings. Add eggs and half & half and blend well. Pour in greased 3-4 ramekins or one baking dish. Baked for 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and doesn’t “giggle” (a technical cooking term) too much anymore. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.Crumble prosciutto for garnish.

    Salmon Souffle

  104. I love this dish, not only because it is tasty and refreshing, but it is quick and easy to prepare. Everyone that has had it loves it!

    Seared salmon with salsa verde

    6 – 6 oz. pieces of salmon, skin removed

    For salsa verde:
    1-2 garlic cloves, finely minced
    1/4 cup sherry vinegar, or cider vinegar
    1/2 c. each fresh Italian parsley and basil leaves
    1/4 c. each fresh chives, tarragon and thyme leaves
    1 T. Dijon mustard
    3 slices Pepperidge Farm very thin white bread, crusts removed
    3 T. capers
    6-8 cornichons, or baby sweet gherkins (depending on size)
    1/2 c. olive oil
    salt and pepper to taste

    Place minced garlic and vinegar in a ramekin, and let sit 10 minutes or so. This process mellows the garlic, by “cooking it.”

    Place herbs, bread, mustard, and vinegar mixture in a food processor and pulse to combine. Scrape bowl, and pulse until combined.

    Add capers, and cornichons and pulse, and scrape again.

    Stream in the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Makes approximately 2 cups.

    Set aside.

    For salmon:

    Preheat oven 400 degrees.

    Season salmon with salt and pepper. In a saute pan over medium high heat, sear the salmon well on one side, until nicely browned and crispy.

    Carefully turn the salmon and sear on the other side for just a few minutes to seal in the juices.

    Transfer to a sheet pan and finish in the oven until cooked through. Cooking times will vary depending on the size and thickness of the fish

    Place fish on plate and spoon some of the salsa verde on top.

    I usually serve this with either rice or boiled baby potatoes, and a colorful vegetable medley.

    This recipe can be altered to suit anyone’s taste.

    Add whatever your favorite herbs are, but be careful of sturdy herbs like rosemary as they may change the texture slightly.

    If you prefer you can substitute a portion of the vinegar with lemon juice, (it will be less acidic) however I love the flavor of the sherry vinegar.

  109. Summer has arrived! Once again, it is time for grilling, NBA Finals (Go Celtics) and the occasional dip in the pool. While typical summer fare is top priority feed for most families, I opt for a lighter, healthier summertime meal. Fresh salmon is always on my shopping list, it’s quick,simple and one of the healthiest and most beneficial foods on the market. While a burger and hot dog are okay every now and again- Who can stand to have it every day? My goal is to bring your taste buds on a roller coaster ride via your dinner plate. Say goodbye to the lemon pepper salmon your mom used to bake- and say hello to a fork full of Asian inspired yummy goodness that’s packed with flavor,but won’t leave you packing the pounds.

  110. I can’t remember where I got this recipe, but, it’s one of our favorite ways to eat salmon:

    “Cowboy Marinade” for Salmon

    1 T. Brown sugar

    1 T butter, melted

    1 T olive oil

    1 T soy sauce

    1 clove garlic, finely chopped

    Mix all ingredients together and marinate salmon at least 30 min but no longer than 60 min.

    Broil or bake salmon as you would normally do.

    I double the recipe for 4 fillet of salmon.

  111. Italian marinated artichoke salmon


    4 salmon fillets
    1 jar marinated artichokes
    3 tlbs minced scallons


    Preheat oven to 350
    Drain artichokes reserving liquid. Cut artichokes into 1″ pieces.

    Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place 1/2 marinade on foil. Place salmon fillets on marinade. Cover with remaining marinade, artichokes and minced scallons. Cover and bake for 20 to 30 minutes depending on size of fillets.

    Alternately, wrap marinated fillets in foil with marinade and artichokes and grill until done.

    The sweetness of the salmon and the flavor of the artichokes are a perfect blend.


  112. Cured and Smoked Asian Salmon

    1 pound salmon filet, cut into 2 pieces
    1 C soy sauce
    1/2 C brown sugar
    2 green onions, sliced
    2 t. fresh grated ginger
    2 T crushed garlic

    Place salmon in large ziplock bag or other airtight container. Mix the remaining ingredients together and pour over salmon in bag. Push all air out of bag and seal. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 days (yes!, 2 days). Grill over hot coals in a fish basket until cooked through. This provides a sugar ans salt cure to the fish, and then the sugar carmelizes during cooking.

    Serve with rice and steamed veggies.

    My 10 year old son will not eat any other fish, but he loves this dish and asks for it regularly.

  115. Recipe: When I heard of your salmon contest I thought long and hard about coming up with my own recipe that was different. I was weeding my garden and saw the rhubarb is ready and thought “What can I do with Rhubarb and Salmon?” What better than a fruit salsa over fish, but Rhubarb? I made two different flavors one with Basil and the other with Cilantro and I liked both for different reasons, so had the family come and taste test the salsa and it ended up being a 50/50 split on which was best.

    Salmon Filet’s with Rhubarb Salsa

    Salsa:(good if made a day ahead)
    2 cups chopped Rhubarb
    2 oranges (zest both oranges, squeeze the juice from one orange and cut out orange segments and cut into pieces from the second orange)
    2 cloves garlic minced
    1 small to medium onion chopped
    3 TBSP honey
    1 TBSP lime juice
    dash of Kosher Salt
    1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped Fresh Basil OR chopped Fresh Cilantro

    Place Rhubarb and orange juice in saucepan and cook over medium heat until the rhubarb is tender but still holds its shape. Turn burner off and add the honey and lime juice. Place in the refrigerator until it cools. Add onion, garlic, herb (basil OR cilantro) and orange segments to the cooled rhubarb and stir. serve over Salmon.

    Salmon Filet
    1 orange
    sliced onion rings
    Italian Salad Dressing
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Place Salmon filet on a foil bed. lightly coat the filet with your favorite Italian salad dressing. Place sliced onion rings and orange slices on the fish. Salt with Kosher salt to taste. Bake in 375 degree oven or in Bar-B-Que until the fish is done approximately 20 minutes per inch, do not over cook. Garnish with orange zest.

    Salmon is the consumate summer dinner from my childhood with fresh corn on the cob just brought in from the fields, new potatoes just dug from the fields, and fresh tomatoes from the vine, and a tall glass of lemon Ice Tea. Now that is summer to me.

    Rhubarb Salmon

  116. Maple-glazed salmon with nectarine salsa

    Nectarine Salsa
    Half a red onion finely chopped
    3 nectarines (can substitute fresh peaches), chopped (slightly under-ripe is good)
    Juice of two lemons, one reserved lemon for fish (three lemons total)
    3 cloves minced garlic
    1/2 tsp. ginger, finely grated
    2 chopped scallions
    1/2 Tbsp. each mint, parsley, cilantro all finely chopped
    Freshly ground black pepper and kosher sea salt to taste
    Pinch of Allspice

    1 ½ lb. salmon filet, skin on
    2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

    Preheat oven to 400 F.

    Combine salsa ingredients and let salsa macerate 10 to 15 minutes.

    Coat a shallow baking dish with non-stick spray and place a 1 ½ lb. salmon filet in dish, skin-side down.

    Pour maple syrup on salmon and rub lightly into flesh, let sit for a few minutes. Spoon the salsa over the salmon, covering all exposed surfaces. Salmon should be completely covered.

    Dust with fresh ground pepper.

    Bake salmon, uncovered, until the liquid at the edges just begins to sizzle, about 12-15 minutes. Fish should flake easily with a fork.

    Remove the salmon from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before testing doneness. The salmon will continue cooking after it is removed from the oven. After resting, use a paring knife to peek at the thick part of your fillet. It should be opaque at the edges, while the center maintains a quasi-raw darker pink color; think medium-rare.

    Serving suggestions: Strawberry spinach salad and coconut basmati rice.

  122. Poached Wild Sockeye with Creamy Mustard Sauce & Cucumber Salad
    Serves: 2 Difficulty: Easy

    1lb Wild Sockeye Salmon scaled with pin bones removed, sliced into two fillets
    ¼ Vidalia onion
    1 Lemon
    2 Bay leaves
    1 tablespoon black peppercorns
    8 cups water
    1 cup Chardonnay
    2 thin slices Whole Grain or Pumpernickel Bread, toasted
    Mustard sauce (recipe follows)

    Cucumber Salad (recipe follows – should be made in advance)

    To a piece of cheesecloth, add onion, 2 quartered pieces of lemon, 2 bay leaves, and peppercorns. Wrap cheesecloth around ingredients, twist ends, and tie off. Add water, Chardonnay, and cheesecloth wrap to a large pot and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes (if you don’t have cheesecloth, you can add the ingredients directly into the liquid, simmer for 30 minutes, drain, and return liquid to the pot). Turn the temperature of the pot down to just under a simmer. Add Salmon to the liquid, fully submerging, and poach to desired doneness. For two 8-ounce fillets, approximately 8-10 minutes will result in salmon just cooked through, leaving center barely translucent. Carefully remove from the liquid and plate with cucumber salad and toast. Top salmon with a little of the mustard sauce. Remember that the sauce is an accompaniment, don’t add too much so that it takes away from the delicious flavor of this amazingly moist, wild fish.

    Mustard Sauce

    ¼ cup Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
    1 tablespoon sugar
    4 tablespoons heavy cream
    2 tablespoons Citrus Champagne Vinegar (if unavailable, use champagne vinegar & add a squeeze of fresh lemon)
    Sea salt
    Fresh cracked pepper
    ¼ cup Extra Virgin olive oil
    1 ½ teaspoons capers, rinsed and drained
    3 tablespoons fresh baby dill

    In a small bowl, whisk together mustards, sugar, heavy cream, vinegar, a dash of the salt & pepper. Continue to whisk and slowly add olive oil while whisking. Add capers and dill. Set aside or cover and place in refrigerator if made in advance.

    Cucumber Salad

    1 Large seedless cucumber
    ¼ red onion
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 tablespoon fresh baby dill
    2 tablespoons Citrus Champagne Vinegar (if unavailable, use champagne vinegar & add a squeeze of fresh lemon)
    Sea salt
    Fresh cracked pepper

    Make this in advance. Chop ends off of cucumber and peel to leave a pattern of skin/no skin/skin…etc. Slice cucumber on a bias and slightly thicker than for a typical cucumber salad. Place sliced cucumber in a colander and add salt. Toss and let sit in colander for roughly 15 minutes. Rinse and leave in colander for an additional 5 minutes to drain.

    Place cucumber slices in a medium bowl. Add the red onion, sliced very thin. Add sugar, dill, vinegar, and just a dash of the salt & pepper. Toss, cover, and refrigerate.

    This makes for a delicious lunch or brunch. The creamy sauce and salmon pair extremely well together and the cucumber salad is very refreshing. The thin toasts add a nice crunch to the meal, rounding it out nicely. Paired with a slightly oaky Chardonnay, some sunshine, a light sea breeze, and your favorite companion, it makes for the perfect afternoon.

    Poached Salmon

  123. “Salmon Loves Bacon” with wilted arugula

    Is there really any better sauce than bacon “essence,” i.e. drippings? It self-bastes the salmon and works as an all-in-one sauce.

    Makes 4 servings.

    4 (5- to 6-oz) center-cut pieces skinless salmon fillet (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
    1/2 teaspoon salt

Lay one bacon slice lengthwise along top of each fillet, tucking ends of bacon under fillet (ends will not meet). Thread 1 skewer through length of each fillet, entering and exiting fish through bacon to secure it.

    Arrange fish, bacon sides down, on preheated rack of broiler pan and broil three minutes, then turn over and broil until fish is just cooked through and bacon is crisp, three to four minutes more.

    While salmon broils, heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, add shallots, stirring occasionally, until they begin to brown, three to five minutes. Add arugula and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, one to two minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  134. Paco’s Smoked Salmon Tacos

    The story of the smoked tacos started many years ago on the East Coast. My husband was a transplant from Southern California and picked up many Mexican dishes along the way. He sees himself as a creative cook and I’d have to agree. So back to the Smoked Salmon Tacos. We started preparing them for our many Mexican parties and at that time just grilled the salmon, using the secret sauce to finish them off. When we moved to the Northwest we added a smoker to our repertoire and by chance tried using the smoked salmon for the tacos and there it was the perfect pairing. We’ve become somewhat snobbish since we’re from the Northwest and now only use wild salmon and sometimes only wild salmon caught off our sea wall. I must say we haven’t disappointed any of our family or friends with whom we’ve shared our dish.

    Serves 10

    11/2 lbs. salmon
    1 cup mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons sour cream
    1/2 cup tomato based salsa (commercial or freshly made
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1/2 small head of red cabbage, thinly sliced
    10 6-8 inch flour tortilla
    1/2 bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped

    To prepare salmon:

    1. Smoked salmon- Skin fillet and cut into 10 pieces (the skin is removed to provide more surface area exposed to the smoke). Generously salt and pepper. Using a hot smoker, smoke for approximately 1 hour, using hickory as our wood of choice.
    2. Grilled salmon(only if you don’t have a smoker)-Using olive oil, lightly oil the salmon fillet and then salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side down on aluminum foil. Close grill top and don’t turn salmon over. Grill until done (on a medium to medium high grill it should take about 10 minutes) and the skin the salmon.
    Both methods can be prepared a day ahead and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before assembling the tacos.

    To prepare the secret sauce:

    We’ve given you the ingredients but for us, we taste as we go. Mix together the mayo, sour cream, salsa and lime juice. Best made several hours before assembling the tacos. Cover and refrigerate.

    Assembling Paco’s Smoked Salmon Tacos:

    1. Warm the tortillas (if using microwave it only takes 30-40 seconds).
    2. Put 1/10 of salmon in tortilla
    3. Then add cabbage and a couple tablespoons of the secret sauce.
    4. Garnish with a bit of cilantro.

    Note: If you want the smoky flavor when using grilled salmon, replace the 1/2 c. of salsa with 2-4 canned chipotle chilis in adobo sauce. Mix thoroughly or blend.

  135. I made this recipe for my Dad for Father’s day. He loved it! It is simple, but definitely worth a try!
    To see the recipe along with pictures, go here: http://favfamilyrecipes.blogspot.com/2008/06/fathers-day-salmon.html

    Father’s Day Salmon:

    1 large fillet of salmon, 1-inch thick
    1 bottle Grey Poupon
    2-3 c. chopped herbs (cilantro, basil, parsley, rosemary, mint, green onion, any other herbs that you love… Remove all stems, use only the leaves. Use a knife to finely chop and grind up all herbs. DO NOT use a food processor.)
    *Roasted garlic, crushed
    Hollandaise (optional)

    Slather salmon with Grey Poupon, use the whole bottle. Top with herbs (lots and lots) and roasted garlic. Cover so it looks like a nice, thick “herb blanket”. Cook in oven at 325 degrees for 20 minutes (20 minutes per inch of thickness) in a glass baking dish or cookie sheet (or something oven proof) Serve with *garlic oil (from roasted garlic–see below), fresh squeezed lemon, and hollandaise. Great with rice, veggies, or crackers. (I served my Dad’s over a bed of cooked spinach and garlic)

    *Roasted Garlic: get 2 parts canola oil to 1 part fresh, peeled garlic cloves. Get oil hot (350 degrees- no lower) add garlic. When oil is teeming, remove from heat and allow to cool while in pan. It will still bubble for a long time, that is what you want. Allow to cool down to room temp. Store in a mason jar… oil, garlic, and all!

  136. Thai Salmon “Sliders” With a Mango-Red Pepper Salsa

    For the sliders:

    1 lb salmon fillet, skin removed
    1 egg
    2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
    1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
    ¼ cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped
    ¼ cup green onion, chopped (light green and green parts only)
    2 tsp soy sauce
    1 tsp fish sauce
    1 tsp sesame oil
    ½ tsp red chili flakes
    olive oil (for frying)
    1 package (12) small, soft dinner rolls (such as King’s Hawaiian)
    butter or mayo as desired (for the rolls)

    For the salsa:

    1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
    1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped
    1/3 cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped
    juice of one lime
    ¼ tsp red chili flakes
    salt and pepper to taste

    Prepare the salsa first to allow time for the flavors to blend. Mix all of the salsa ingredients in a small bowl and chill, covered, for at least half an hour.
    Using a food processor fitted with a metal blade, pulse salmon until coarsely ground. Add egg and pulse until well mixed. Transfer salmon mixture to a bowl. Add garlic, ginger, green onion, cilantro, sesame oil, soy sauce, fish sauce and chili flakes and mix together thoroughly. Shape salmon mixture into 12 small patties and refrigerate, covered, for at least half an hour.
    In a non-stick pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Fry salmon patties until lightly browned on one side, about 2-3 minutes. Flip patties over and cook until lightly browned on the other side, about 2 minutes. Check to see patties are cooked through.
    Toast rolls if desired and spread with butter or mayo or both. Place one patty on each roll and top with a tablespoon or two of salsa.

  137. Salmon patties: So simple, just three ingredients.

    1 can salmon
    1 egg
    15 Soda crackers

    In a medium sized bowl break up the salmon with a fork. Add a beaten egg. Crush the soda crackers into medium crumbs. Add to salmon. Mix thoroughly. Let stand for a few minutes until crackers absorb all the liquid from the salmon. Shape into patties. Heat 3 Tbs oil in non stick skillet and fry patties until golden brown on both sides.
    Variation: Coat patties with cornmeal and bake in a 350 degree oven until crisp and browned.


    4 salmon steaks

    2 tsp grated ginger root
    3 cloves minced garlic
    2 tbsp sesame oil
    1 lime juice of one lime
    2 tbsp soy sauce

    Rub the salmon steaks with the grated ginger root and minced garlic.
    Combine sesame oil, lime juice, and soy sauce and pour over the steaks.
    Marinate one hour, turning occasionally.

    Remove the salmon steaks from the marinade.
    Fry in olive oil approximately five minutes on each side.

    Prepare one package of gnocchi according to the package directions.

    2 tbsp butter
    2 tbsp all-purpose flour
    1 cup heated milk
    1/3 cup heavy cream
    white pepper

    Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir until mixture is well blended. Gradually stir in hot milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce begins to boil and thickens. Simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Stir in cream. Season with salt and pepper.

    Break salmon into bite-size pieces and add to the sauce gently stirring.
    Add boiled gnocchi and stir.
    Sprinkle with chopped parsley and/or dill.

  139. Salmon, Couscous & Fried Corn


    My grocery store didn’t have any fresh salmon when we shopped last, so I had to buy the frozen variety. This is fine they are scaled, skinned, boned and cut to perfect portions, so it does take a lot of the work out. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray and place the salmon in the dish. Pre-heat the oven to 350°. Season the salmon with salt, pepper and lemon juice. If you want something different go ahead. I topped my salmon with sweet chili sauce when it came out of the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until it flakes apart easily.


    This couldn’t be easier. I use the boxed, instant coucous. They have them in a variety of flavors, I made plain-it’s good and my toddler loves it!

    Fried Corn

    Yeah, this probably sounds a little wierd, but it’s tasty. I had a couple of corn on the cobs left from earlier in the week. So, I cut the corn off the cob and tossed it with a little salt, pepper and chipoltle chili powder and into a skillet with a little hot oil. Fry over medium-high heat until they have a little color.

  140. Stuffed Salmon:

    1 medium sized salmon, cleaned –preferably deboned and halved.
    1/4 C. butter
    2 TBSP freshly minced garlic browned in 1 tsp. oil.

    In a medium bowl, combine the following ingredients, mix well and stuff into the belly section of the salmon and arrange in a baking dish. Dot the the top of salmon and belly area with butter.
    1/2 C. Soysauce
    2 T. lfresh emon Juice
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 TBSP fresh garlic, chopped
    2 C. Tomatoes, chopped
    1 TBSP fresh parsley, chopped
    1 tsp. black pepper

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake salmon covered in foil for 30-40 minutes or until done. Top with browned garlic and serve with steamed rice.

  141. Recipe: Soak cedar plank in water for at least one hour prior to grilling.
    Baste salmon by squeezing fresh lemon juice over entire fish.
    Sprinkle dill over top of fish.
    Lightly sprinkle ‘Old Bay Seasoning’ over entire fish.
    Cover fish with a layer of alternating pieces of thinly sliced lemon and red onion.
    Grill on cedar plank at medium heat.

  142. Recipe: Ponzu-Basted Salmon on Seasoned Rice with Pea Shoots and Pickled Veggies (serves 2)

    For the Rice
    1 1/2 cup short grain Japanese Rice
    2 1/4 cups water
    3 ounces rice vinegar
    2 ounces sugar
    1 tsp kosher salt
    2 tsp black sesame seeds

    Place the rice and water in a small pan and bring to a boil. Stir the rice and reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes, then turn the heat off and allow to sit, covered for 10 more minutes. Combine the vinegar, sugar and salt and stir together; set aside for a few minutes to allow the sugar to dissolve. Pour it over the rice and toss with a fork. Place rice into bowls and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    For the Salmon
    2 5 ounce pieces of wild salmon, skin attached
    1/2 cup rice vinegar (unseasoned, please) salt
    1/2 cup ponzu (equal parts soy sauce with fresh lemon or lime juice)

    Preheat the broiler. About 15 minutes before you are ready to grill, place the salmon in a plastic bag and pour the rice vinegar over; this is optional but begins the cooking process with acid, and I think it leads to a very mellow-tasting and tender finished product). Place the salmon in a flame-proof, shallow baking sheet, skin side up. Douse with a little ponzu and sprinkle with salt. Broil for about 7 minutes, basting continuously with the ponzu sauce. Serve on the seasoned rice.

    Tear the pea shoots into 1-2″ pieces and drizzle with good extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with a tiny pinch of kosher salt. Place on top of the salmon, along with a few pickled vegetables, such as radishes or turnips (available in Japanese grocery stores).

    Ponzu-Basted Salmon


    16 oz Wild King Salmon Filet
    6 oz Lager Beer of choice
    1 Shallot
    4 tbsp Butter
    1 lemon
    1/4 tsp paprika
    1 clove Garlic

    Prepare basting sauce. Pour beer (preferrably flat) in to medium saucepan. Finely dice shallot and add to beer. Squeeze juice from one lemon into mixture, add paprika and garlic (whole clove). Add butter and place over meduim heat, stirring until buttler is completely melted and shallots are soft and translucent. Remove garlic clove and discard. Add finely chopped parsley.

    Place salmon, skin side down over medium-hot coals. Drizzle 1/2 basting mixture over salmon, close lid and allow to cook for 12-14 minutes. Add remaining basting mixture and close lid for 2-3 more minutes. Salmon will easily flake and be opaque all the way through the filet. Basting liquid creates a steam cooker which keeps fish moist and adds a very mild flavor that enhances the great salmon taste.

    Opt: Can also be hot-smoked, using soaked alder chips. Serves 4 (or two if you’re like me)

  146. Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon

    2- 4 to 5 pound Salmons gutted, head and tail removed ½ cup good quality olive oil ½ cup balsamic vinegar
    4 tablespoons of Spice Mixture (recipe below)

    Cut diagonal slices on each side of the salmon cutting through till you reach the bone.
    Drizzle the balsamic vinegar and olive oil on each side of the salmon. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the mixture on each salmon making sure to season both sides.
    Place salmon on a pre-heated med-high heat on grill for about 12 -15 minutes each side. Check to see that the fish is flaky in the center for doneness. Serve and enjoy being careful of any bones.

    Spice Rub Mixture

    2 teaspoons of each of the following spices: kosher salt, celery seed, cayenne pepper, black pepper, onion pepper, garlic powder, dry mustard, fennel seeds, Hungarian paprika, oregano, sage, thyme, coriander.

    Ponzu-Basted Salmon

  147. One side of salmon
    squeeze juice from one lemon on to salmon and sprinkle with black pepper, thyme, and fresh chopped garlic.

    While that sits, mix together one cup of sour cream and one cup of shredded Parmesan cheese. This should be a very thick mixture and if you have a large salmon you may need to double the sour cream mixture.

    Spread the mixture evenly over the salmon and broil until the top is golden brown and bubbly. Time to eat!

  148. I’m Jewish, and one of my favorite sandwiches is bagel with cream cheese and lox. For the contest, I decided to give this classic a bit of a twist.

    Smoked Salmon Sandwich on Ciabata with brie, roasted peppers, red onion and capers

    Ingredients and Directions
    1) In a food processor puree a roasted red pepper, a tablespoon of capers and a drizzle of olive oil
    2) Split a sundried tomato ciabata in half and smear the roasted red pepper spread on the bottom
    3) Top with thinly sliced red onion, layers of smoked salmon, slices of brie cheese, and top with the other half of ciabata

    Enjoy! This could not have been easier. Note: originally I was planning on using slices of roasted peppers instead of a puree, but Jenny thought the sandwich will not hold together. I thought that sounded reasonable, and went with the puree. Having done so, I think my original idea was better. Try it whichever way you like: the taste is fabulous!

    Ponzu-Basted Salmon

    1 cup brown sugar
    5 tbs. minced garlic
    2 tbs. Sea salt
    2 tbs. Fresh ground pepper

    Take your whole salmon and make a tinfoil boat around it, make sure it is big and deep enough for all your Guinness. Next take your brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper and mix them together in another bowl. Next take your whole lemon and slice it thinly. Next take your brown sugar mix and pack it in and on your salmon, finally lay your lemon slices in and on your salmon and slowly pour your whole can of Guinness draft on your salmon.
    BBQ until done. This is very good.

  151. This recipe came together after years of cooking salmon steaks on an indoor grill, and adding things along the way. It is now our “signature” salmon dish and every-time I cook it, it gets rave reviews, plus Its’ quick, easy and uses ingredients you probably have on hand. I have served this to “fish haters” and the smiles on their faces says it all! In all honesty, I just lay the steaks out and dress the salmon steaks with each of the below ingredients one at a time. You can substitute brown sugar for the honey, and fresh dill for dried.

    4 Salmon Steaks
    2 Tablespoons Dark Soy Sauce
    1 Tablespoon Honey
    2 teaspoons Toasted Sesame Oil
    3 teaspoons Dried Dill
    White Pepper

    Heat grill or prepare barbecue to make a hot fire.

    In a small bowl combine soy sauce, honey and sesame oil.
    Wisk until well blended. Brush (or spoon on) both sides of the steaks with the sauce. Sprinkle the dill over each piece of fish (don’t be skimpy) and a few turns of white pepper per side. Each piece should be well coated with the sauce and dill.

    Grill the steaks about 2.5 minutes a side (2 for rare), turning the steaks 45 degrees after a minute and a half.
    Flip after the 3 minutes are up and repeat.

    Note: if you have problems with fish sticking, don’t turn the fish, just cook for 3 min and flip. This dish can also be broiled or baked. It’s easy and fantastic.

    Serve with a nice rice pilaf and steamed asparagus.

    1 bunch watercress, washed and trimmed
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
    2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    1 clove garlic, minced

  160. Heart Healthy Pacific Salmon Tacos

    You wish your fast food loving family would eat something more heart healthy. You know that one of the healthiest ways to get complete protein is to enjoy Pacific salmon, because besides the protein, it is also rich in those wonderful omega-3 fatty acids that we now know are essential to protecting the heart and have more recently learned defend against depression. Get your family to lap up these fast Pacific salmon tacos!

    8-12 taco shells

    1 1/ lbs. Pacific salmon fillets (or 2 cans Pacific salmon if fresh is not available)

    1 lemon, thinly sliced
    4 whole black peppercorns (or 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper, but it leaves specks on the salmon)
    1 bay leaf
    Several sprigs fresh parsley, preferably flat-leaf (it has more flavor)
    Water to cover the salmon

    Put the salmon in a wide pan and add the remaining ingredients. Poach, covered, for several minutes until you can separate the flakes of salmon easily with a fork; the exact time depends on the thickness of the filet. Allow to cool until you can handle it easily.

    TIP: Save the cooking liquid in the freezer and use it next time you poach salmon. It just gets to tasting richer and richer. You could eventually use it in soup.

    When it is cool, pull off and discard the skin. Remove and discard the dark line runing down the center on the skin side. Break up the rest into bite size pieces and place on a serving platter.

    If using canned Pacific salmon, break it up as you would for salmon salad or patties.

    For the salsa:
    4-6 fresh tomatillos, depending on size
    Large bunch cilantro, well washed and dried, tough stems removed
    1/2 to 1 fresh chipotle pepper, depending on your family’s taste for heat OR jalapeno pepper (or substitute about 1/2 tsp. dry pepper flakes, to taste)
    1 green bell pepper
    1 Haas avocado, finely chopped
    Juice of 1 lime or to taste (or about 1 T. bottled lime juice, to taste)
    Salt to taste

    Finely chop the tomatillos, most of the cilantro (save some for garnish) and peppers, OR cut the tomatillos and peppers into large pieces and place in food processor. Toss with remaining salsa ingredients, taste and adjust seasoning. Alternatively, put the tomatillos and peppers in your food processor and pulse with one hand while dropping in cilantro through the tube with the other. Take care not to end up pureeing the vegetables! If you put the avocados in the food procesor, you may end up making the whole mixture to mushy, so it is better to chop it by hand and toss it in by hand.

    Remove to a mixing bowl and toss in remaining ingredients.

    To present dinner:

    Put the salsa in a serving bowl. On a platter, heap the salmon and beside it, put a heap of shredded lettuce. If there are some exceptional chiliheads in your house, put some sliced jalapeno pepper on the platter. Garnish with a few sprigs of cilantro. Garnish with additional wedges of lime if you like.

    Put the taco shells in a basket or other serving dish.

    Put the 3 serving dishes on the table. Family members can fill their taco shells to taste with salmon, salsa nd lettuce.

    Have fresh berries for dessert.

    Many experts recommend Pacific salmon twice a week for greater heart health benefits. Your family may be so pleased with this dish that they will eat a variation another day of the week.

    Prepare your family’s favorite red tomato-based salsa and serve with the tacos together with shredded lettuce and guacamole or a small dollop of sour cream.

    Enjoy watermelon or cubes of cantaloupe melon for dessert.

Yum Yum . . . hope you enjoy this easy to prepare meal and give your friends the WOW FACTOR. Even you non-cooking friends will love the taste and how easy it is to make!!
    ** Mango Habanero Butter**
    One half cup Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter

    One and one half teaspoon minced, seeded and deveined fresh habanero chile
    Two teaspoons finely grated lime zest, one teaspoon will be for garnish
    One tablespoon minced chive, additional five sprigs for garnish

    One cup long grain white rice
    One half teaspoon kosher salt
    One quarter cup scallion
    One quarter cup cilantro
    One quarter cup toasted chopped macadamia nut
    One quarter cup chopped roasted red bell pepper

    **Jerk Spiced Grilled Salmon**

    Olive oil
    Onion, chopped
    Garlic (lots)

    1 pinch Saffron threads
    Salt and Pepper, to taste

    1 pound wild salmon plus a mix of your favorite seafood, i.e.
    Crab legs

    Fresh pasta, cooked al dente

    Sauté the veggies (minus the tomatoes) in olive oil until soft and caramelized. Add fennel, saffron, red pepper flakes, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Slowly add liquid and let it come to a simmer.

    Gently add the seafood. Let the broth return to a simmer and cook for about 8 minutes being careful not to overcook the seafood. Discard any mussels that have not opened up.

    Pile large, wide bowls with pasta. Spoon Bouillabaisse over the top making sure to get a nice mix of seafood, plenty of salmon and broth in each bowl. Garnish each dish with fresh chopped tomatoes and parsley.

  172. Mango Glazed Grilled Salmon with Goat Cheese Slaw

    this recipe serves 2 for the salmon and makes about 7 cups of slaw

    2 salmon fillets (I used Alaskan wild sockeye from TJ’s)

    BBQ Sauce
    3/4 of a champagne mango, diced( about a generous 1/2 cup)
    1/4 cup dark rum
    3 tbl. dark brown sugar
    2 tbl mashed banana, the riper the better but any will do
    zest and juice of 1 small lime
    1/4 tsp cardamon
    1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
    1/8 tsp cayenne, more or less to taste
    pinch sea salt

    The best way to prepare the mango is to slice lengthwise just about to the center pit on both sides, leaving a thin slice containing the pit. You will not use this piece. Hold the mango and carefully run your knife along the inside, just to the skin, and dice (like you would an avocado). Then gently push the skin in the opposite direction, exposing the diced pieces. You can now slice them easily from the skin.

    Place all the ingredients for the sauce in the food processor and process until the mixture is pureed. Then add the mixture to a small, heavy sauce pan and cook on med high heat, stirring often, until it begins to thicken. This took about 12 minutes on my stove. Once it has thickens, I pushed it through a fine sieve to give it a smoother consistency.

    When you are ready to cook the salmon, be sure the grill is cleaned and oiled. I also rubbed the salmon with a bit of olive oil and gave it a lit sprinkle of kosher flake salt. Place the fish on a nice, hot grill, skin side up, for about 7 minutes or until a nice crust has formed. Flip the salmon, brush generously with the sauce and continue cooking for about 7-9 more minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. I brushed the fish again, halfway through. When the fish is thoroughly cooked, remove and serve with a bit of the relish on top.

    Mango Cucumber Relish
    the remainder of the diced mango, about 1/4 cup
    the same amount of peeled, diced cucumber
    a splash of rum,about 1 tsp
    a bit of brown sugar, about 1 tsp
    pinch of salt

    Combine all ingredients ahead of time and let them sit in the fridge until ready to serve, giving the flavors a chance to get to know one another.

    Goat Cheese Slaw
    4 cups finely sliced green cabbage
    3 cups finely sliced red cabbage
    1 1/2 cup finely grated carrot
    1/2 cup finely grated green pepper
    4 oz goat cheese
    4 oz creme fraiche
    zest of 1 lemon, about 1 tbl
    2 tbl lemon juice
    3 tbl grapefruit vinegar, any fruity vinegar would be fine
    salt and pepper to taste

    I used the food processor to to all the slicing and grating to save time. You could certainly do this without one, just slice them finely. Place all the sliced veg in a large bowl.

    Combine the goat cheese with the creme fraiche and stir until smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients and give a good stir. Add the the veggies and toss, then taste again for additional s & p. Let them sit in the fridge for a few hours to chill. Give them a good toss again before serving.

    I’ve been cooking since I was 5 years old. I’m a true lifetime foodie. I’ve been married for 18 years and truly enjoy the experience of cooking for my husband and my family. I love to create new dishes out of very little or a lot of food. This is one of many dishes that I created that my husband has raved about. I hope you enjoy too.

    Thank you,

  174. Sweet and Smokey Grilled Bacon Wrapped Salmon Steaks

    4 bamboo grilling skewers (soak in water ten minutes before skewing salmon)
    4 slices thick cut bacon
    4 wild salmon steaks
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
    ½ cup apple jelly
    2 teaspoons green onion; finely chopped
    2 teaspoons red bell pepper; finely chopped
    2 cloves garlic; crushed
    Freshly ground black pepper
    4 lemon wedges for garnish
    Mixed greens

    Set your grill at 325 or medium/low setting. Soak bamboo skewers for ten minutes in a long flat glass or metal pan.

    Wrap bacon around the sides of the salmon steaks; secure bacon to the sides of the salmon with bamboo skewers. Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning on both sides of the salmon then drizzle olive oil on both sides as well.

    In a small mixing bowl, combine apple jelly, green onion, red bell pepper, garlic, and black pepper.

    Place salmon steaks on grill rack. Using a cooking brush, baste salmon with the apple jelly mixture on each side—at the beginning of the cooking process. Continue to baste and turn the salmon to be sure that the salmon is glazed, the bacon is crispy, and the salmon is not browning too quickly. You will cook each side approximately five minutes or until the salmon is flaky; yet firm.

    Serve on a bed of mixed greens with lemon wedges. Sprinkle with more fresh ground black pepper if desired.

  175. Salmon Sirianni

    Using Alaska’s Copper River Salmon

    Fillet of Copper River Sockeye Salmon
    2-4 pounds Fresh caught Alaskan Copper River Salmon

    Vegetables / Fruits
    1 bunch green onions(course chop)
    1 large lemon(½ sliced, ½ for juice)

    2-heaping handfuls brown sugar
    1 –stick butter sliced into pats
    1/3 bottle Crystal brand hot sauce
    To taste salt & pepper
    1 foil grilling pan make from two sheets of aluminum foil
    1 spray Pam cooking spray
    Large spoon for basting

    Foil Pan Prep
    Use heavy duty foil pull out two lengths approximately 1.5 times the length of your fish.
    Construct a leak proof pan by stacking the foil sheets one on top of the other. begin folding sides and ends in once inch increments until they can stand vertical without support. (about 3 folds each)
    Crimp the corners together by overlapping the side folds and end folds together.
    Spray the pan with Pam Cooking Spray or butter to grease the surface.

    Salt and pepper the salmon and place on grill flesh side down.
    Grill on high heat to sear.
    Allow to cook until the skin begins to feels warm to the touch.
    The lower photo illustrates how much the salmon should cook through prior to returning the salmon to the kitchen for seasoning.
    The goal is to partially cook the salmon as well as sear the flesh to obtain
    grill marks on the salmon.

    Flip the salmon over, season again with a little salt, pepper and the juice of 1 lemon.
    Generously shake on Crystal hot sauce, and add butter. If you would like more sauce for glazing increase hot sauce, butter, and brown sugar in relative proportions.
    Generously add brown sugar, chopped green onions and lemon slices.
    Head back to the grill.

    Return foil boat and salmon to the grill set on high heat.
    Move the lemons to the side allowing them to cook through.
    Begin basting the melted brown sugar and butter liquid over the salmon.
    As the sauce begins to darken, reserve several ounces for glazing just prior to serving. Continue basting the salmon until the mixture begins to look overly brown.
    At this point close the grill cover and allow the remaining sugar mixture to blacken.

    Remove the salmon from the grill.
    You will produce a lot of blue smoke! Not to worry it’s normal.
    Using a spatula, (long if possible) sneak between the salmon skin and flesh leaving the skin in place in the foil boat.

  180. Wild Caught Coriander-Dill Salmon with Fresh Dill Aioli

    Coriander – Dill Seasoning

    2 tbsp kosher salt
    1 tbsp whole coriander seed
    2 tbsp dill weed
    1 tbsp dill seed
    2 tsp yellow mustard seed
    2 tsp brown mustard seed
    1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
    1/8 tsp ground bay leaf

    Grind the coriander seed and the mustard seed in a spice mill or crack under a skillet. Mix all of the herbs and spices together in an air tight container. This mix will hold well for several months. This will give you 2 ounces of seasoning.

    Fresh Dill Aioli

    2 egg yolks
    2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
    2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    2 tsp balsamic vinegar
    Pinch of cayenne pepper
    1 cup olive oil
    1 tsp kosher salt
    Fresh squeezed lemon juice

    Whisk the first 5 ingredients in a small stainless steel bowl. Cover a small pot with a towel and place the bowl on top of the pot. This will hold your bowl steady while you slowly whisk in all of the olive oil. Add the salt and adjust the consistency of the Aioli with the fresh lemon juice. You want a thick, but pourable sauce. Place this in the refrigerator. This will be good for 5-7 days. This will give you about 1 ¾ cups of sauce.

    To prepare the Fresh Wild Caught Salmon

    Rinse the fresh wild caught salmon with cold water, place on a clean plate and brush with olive oil. Generously shake the Coriander – Dill Seasoning on the salmon.
    Place the fish on a hot charcoal grill, skin side up. This will give you good marks on the presentation side of the salmon. Put on the cover and cook for about 5 minutes.
    Turn over the salmon and cover again. Cook for about another 5 minutes, or until your desired doneness is achieved.
    When done, remove the salmon from the grill and arrange on the plate with your sides. Spoon the Fresh Dill Aioli on top of the salmon and put a fresh lemon wedge beside it.
    Serve to your guests. Bon Appitite.

  182. Salmon in the Garden.

    This is a recipe I made while trying to come up with a meal using ingredients from my garden and stuff I already had at home.


    a sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed
    1 egg, beaten


    2 lbs salmon fillets
    Salt and Pepper
    3 T butter
    2 C scallions
    2 garlic cloves, minced or 1 t dried minced garlic
    1/4 C flour
    3 C white sauce (4 T flour, 4 T butter, saute on medium heat, stirring constantly until light brown, then slowly add 3 C milk. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir for 5 minutes or until thickened.)
    1 C vegetable broth
    1 C frozen peas
    1/4 C minced fresh dill
    lemon juice to taste
    cayenne pepper to taste

    1. Cut the pastry puff into 12 rectangles. Brush with egg and bake at 425 for about 8 minutes or until puffed and light brown. Cool.

    2. Lower temp to 400. Cut salmon into small chunks and season with salt and pepper. Spread salmon out in a 9×13″ baking dish.

    3. Saute scallions and salt to taste in butter in soup pot over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds longer. Stir in flour. Gradually whisk in vegetable broth, then white sauce. Simmer for 1 minute.

    4. Turn off heat and add peas, dill, lemon juice, cayenne. Pour mixture evenly over salmon.

    5. Put puff pastry rectangles on top of casserole. Bake for 15 minutes.

    Ta da! Delicious, and I was only out the money I spent on the salmon.


    When my brother-in-law shared his wild salmon catch with us several years ago, I wanted to prepare his wonderful treat in a way that highlighted wild salmon’s perfection. An advantage to this recipe is that it is simple, quick, can be prepped ahead and then cooked in a microwave or oven to be served within 20 minutes. Microwave-cooked salmon turns out perfectly poached. No one believes that this sophisticated sauce contains ONLY balsamic vinegar.
    Note from Foxy, a Pomeranian who graces our house with her presence: “Be sure to leave the skin on salmon while cooking and to save it for your four-footed friends. It is not only delicious but makes my fur extra soft and glossy.”

    Serves 4
    Total cooking time for meal: 20 min.

    4 salmon steaks, ¾ inch thick, fresh or frozen and defrosted
    1 cup balsamic vinegar
    2 cups sliced carrots, may be packaged
    ½ cup heavy cream
    2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    1 tablespoon fresh or freeze-dried dill weed
    pan spray
    plastic wrap if microwaving

    Arrange steaks in a circle with thicker ends facing out on a microwave-safe plate or serving dish, sprayed with non-stick pan spray. Cover tightly with plastic wrap if microwaving. Refrigerate until ready to cook.

    Simmer 1 cup basalmic vinegar until thickened, about ten minutes, stirring from time to time to avoid scorching and to check thickness. Remove from heat until ready to serve.

    Cook salmon on high in microwave for 8 minutes or bake in oven at 350° for 10 minutes. While salmon is cooking, heat butter in frying or saute pan until foaming. Add carrots and saute about five minutes, stirring to glaze all sides. Add cream and simmer carrots until cream is reduced and carrots are done to yourt taste. Sprinkle with dill.

    Serve salmon immediately with carrots and pass basalmic sauce.

  184. Fennel Crusted Salmon with Roasted Fennel, Tomato and Lemon

    3 small fennel bulbs, sliced (reserve some of the fennel fronds for garnish)
    2 tomatoes, sliced
    2 stalks of green garlic
    1 lemon, thinly sliced
    lemon juice
    olive oil
    salt and pepper to taste
    2-3 salmon fillets
    2-3 tsp fennel seeds

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Combine fennel, tomatoes, garlic and lemon slices in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat well and place in a roasting pan in the oven for about 25 minutes until vegetable are nearly fork tender.

    Meanwhile season your salmon with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and top with some lightly crushed fennel seeds. Place on top of the roasting vegetables and continue to cook an additional 10-15 min depending on how much/how big your salmon is.

    Pile some of the roasted veggies on a plate, top with a piece of salmon, drizzle with a little extra lemon juice and garnish with the reserved fennel fronds.

Hold Salmon in your hand let excess Hot Sauce run off, place skin down on grill at a 45 degree angle for 1-2 minutes using a spatula rotate the salmon 45 degrees to the other side for 1-2 more minutes. Flip salmon over and repeat the cook time and 45 degree angles.

Grill for on low for 20 mins or sooner depending on cooking time. About 5 mins into grilling start pouring the 1/3 C of marinade directly onto the salmon filets.
