  1. I posted a similar question about frozen salmon the other week. See the link below for the Honey-Ginger recipe. It is fantastic. I have used it on 2 other dishes since. Also, instead of the recommended peppers, I just used my favorite hot sauce (rooster sauce).

    1. I used this recipe for Maple Pepper salmon bites several times this summer for grilled salmon. I just marinate the salmon filets in the maple/soy mixture instead of cutting the salmon into cubes, then grill as usual.

      1. Teriyaki is a very easy marinade.

        Miso Paste. Best/easiest in a broiler. But, if you have a fish basket, spread a thin layer of miso paste on the filet, put in basket and cook ~5-7 minutes per inch, per side. Combine miso paste, honey (50/50) for the spread, or don't use the honey. My experience is, those who like Japanese food can go either way with the honey, those who are new to Japanese style food may think miso is too strong.

        I googled Salmon with miso and honey and got 16,100 results.

        1. Here's a recipe from the Robert Mondavi site. It's very good. A lot of the recipes on this site, in fact, are.

            I make a simple sauce of creme fraiche or 2% yoghurt (or a combination of the two) and add chopped fresh herbs (any combination of chives, coriander, parsley, dill, etc.) and some fresh lemon juice. You could also add a bit of minced garlic. I brush the salmon with a little olive oil, season with s&p and then add the herbed sauce at the end. Very refreshing.

            1. Brown sugar, lime juice, lemon juice, olive oil, cilantro and black pepper - Marinate about 1 hour and grill on charbroiler. Take the marinade and heat it to a boil in the microwave. Then you can use as a sauce to top the salmon.

              1. I like to grill salmon steaks & top them with a salsa-lime butter towards the end of the grilling. It's so easy. You just mash salsa & a little lime juice & zest into softened butter.

                1. thanks for all the great ideas. I'll be trying all of the recipes.
