Salmon - cjs - 10-31-2006

My favorite way with Salmon is lemon juice, brown sugar & fresh tarragon and grilled/roasted.

Roy grabbed my least favorite veggie at the farmer's market last weekend - cauliflower, so I was off to find something he would like and I would tolerate.

I have a new book "Hot Vegetables" by Hugh Carpenter & Teri Sandison and found in it, "Stir-Fried Cauliflower with Mediterranean Accents". Also, had some salmon thawed...and didn't think tarragon would go with this.

I subbed (dried) dill weed for the tarragon and it was wonderful!! Had never used b. sugar and dill together, but it worked. I'm adding 'brown sugar' to the dill listing in my Culinary Artistry book.

The cauliflower dish?? Roy had three helpings - I was O.K. with it, loved the seasonings - will post if anyone is interested in a cauliflower recipe. But, I'm just not a fan and it's just a side bar to this post anyway! It's the salmon that was so good!

It's time for new Salmon ideas, since we have so many new friends on board... (hint, hint )

My favorite salmon is to rub with a little ev olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and coarse ground pepper. Roast at 250 for 20-25 min. Squeeze a little lemon juice over it and serve with a lemon rice, salad and a pinot noir. Old standby.

Some of my friends had salmon at a restaurant and said they subbed lime for the lemon. They said it was delicious.

I think I posted this many moons ago. We sometimes marinate salmon in a favorite blend (and that brwn sug dill sounds good)and grill on a soaked cedar plank. Really nice and different, buttery kind of flavor.

This is very similar to a recipe that I use---I add a little orange juice and soy sauce for a more Asian blend--gives a nice sweet crust to the salmon---YUMMMM!!!

Re: Salmon - Roxanne 21 - 10-31-2006

AND---I have two books by Carpenter and Sanderson on very unique ways to prepare and present chicken---I have prepared EVERY recipe from their books and pleased with MOST of them. I'll drum up the titles if any one is interested.

I like to rub a little olive oil on it and sprinkle it with a sliced scallion and fresh dill, put about 1/4 cup of dry white wine, cover tightly and steam it at 350 for about 20-30 min. depending upon thickness.
