I thought this one for Thai Salmon that sarah Moulton did the other day on FoodTV looked great, and easy. She put all her salmon in one pouch to steam it.I'm all set to try it next time i do salmon for a group...
I'm also quite fond of steaming it with lemon slices on top, and a few scallions underneath..
For grilling, I use a marinade with EVOO, or peanut oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, orange juice, cilantro and orange zest.
I like to steam salmon in foil on a grill or in the oven with mangos, mint leaves, maybe some basil leaves, some orange juice and a little white wine.
I also love this miso salmon recipe from cooking light the recipe says ten minutes but i usually only broil for about seven:
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 2 tablespoons miso (soybean paste)
- 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
- Cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Combine first 4 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Arrange fish in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon miso mixture evenly over fish.
Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting twice with miso mixture. Sprinkle with chives. Yield: 4 servings.
Place side of salmon on baking sheet/jelly roll pan. Coat both sides with a sprinkle of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Broil until done to your liking.
While salmon is cooking, place sliced onion and sliced garlic with a little olive oil in sautee pan and cook thru. add chopped parsley and tomatoes. cook thru. season with salt and pepper and any herbs you like, such as oregano, thyme, etc., add some dry white table wine and cook a minute or two more. spoon over cooked salmon.
Ingredients are to YOUR liking and can be substituted, replaced or omitted. Amounts are to YOUR likning. This can be done on a grill. It's almost TOO easy!
I call it PLAKI of salmon.
I was looking for a salmon cooked with coconut milk recipe and came across the attached site. It has tons of recipes. I hope one these will become my favorite. In the meantime I sometimes take a thick salmon fillet, dip it in egg, bread it, place on a cookie sheet that's lightly greased with peanut oil. Bake at 400 until coating is crisp and browned.
