Salmon & Ginger

Standard

There are so many ways to dress salmon steaks. This one is not too soy sauce-ish, if you know what I mean! I like soy sauce but sometimes it overpowers everything!

Ingredients:

1 lb. salmon fillet

2 shallots, chopped

1 T. minced ginger

1 t. chili infused oil

1/4 c. sherry vinegar

2 T. soy sauce

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350. Season the salmon fillets and place them in a greased casserole dish, skin side down.

Bake in the oven until done – around 15 minutes depending on the thickness.

While the salmon is baking, combine the shallots, ginger, chili oil, vinegar and soy sauce in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and reduce by half.

When the salmon is done, pour the sauce on top.

Grilled Salmon with Dijon

Standard

I have gotten really picky about my salmon ever since some friends went to Alaska and came back with the most amazing tasting fish ever! From that time on, I never buy farm raised anymore! The pinker the color, the better in my opinion! When it is fresh, it barely needs any dressing up at all, but this light sauce is not overpowering, letting the true flavor of the salmon shine through! The trick is not to overcook it!

Ingredients:

4 salmon steaks

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1 t. Herbs de provence

1 t. Red wine vinegar

2 T dijon mustard

1 t. Olive oil

Directions:

Mix together all the sauce ingredients into a paste.

Heat the grill or a grill pan.

Season the salmon and place on the grill.

Grill for 5 minutes and turn it over. Coat the top of the fish with the sauce. Cook for another 4 minutes.

Turn it over, coat the other side with the sauce, and cook for another few minutes.

Flip it over one more time and cook for another couple of minutes until the salmon is cooked through.
