Help me with my craving
No, I'm not pregnant, but I definitely have a craving for salmon and corn meal.
I don't know where to find regular cornmeal to make muffins with here, but polenta is easy to get. I don't know how muffins made of polenta would turn out.
Can anyone suggest a good, not-too-difficult meal that includes these two ingredients?
Pan-Fried Cornmeal-Encrusted Salmon
Seared Salmon with Salsa Verde
However, I can't image a town in Texas that would carry poleta and not cornmeal. Ask on the Texas board what stores near you sell cornmeal.
polenta is simply coarsely ground cornmeal - if you really want to make muffins (or cornbread), you can just grind the polenta in the food processor to get a finer texture.
as an alternative to what greygarious suggested, i'd make salmon cakes. you can grind the polenta a little finer and use it as the binding agent instead of bread crumbs. a light coating on the outside will give you a nice crispy crust as well.
if you want to keep it super-simple, just crust salmon fillets or steaks with the cornmeal (season them first with salt & pepper), saute to get a nice crust oon both sides, and finish in the oven.
