What your favorite way to cook Salmon?
  Re: (...)
My neighbor is bringing me some salmon. I did her resume and she wants to 'pay' me for my work with a bunch of fish her hubby caught. I seldom make salmon and when I do I only make it one way. I would like some other ideas. But this is my recipe:

This is a perfect catering:

Pesto Salmon

Any amount salmon portions or whole salmon filet
Pesto (fresh or store bought)

Evenly frost your salmon with pesto about 1/8-1/4 inch thick. Put fish under broiler and cook until fish is done and pesto has formed a crust.

Serve hot, warm or cold.

Here is one, it's quite easy really and looks fancy. I usually make alot more of the sauce and serve with garlicky spinach on the side
Pretty sure I got this from someone here, maybe Bill (Resident Sage)?

Salmon Canneloni with Lemon Sauce

2 large eggs
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup ap flour

Lightly brush at l0" nonstick skillet with butter and heat over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Ladle about l/4 cup batter into skillet, tilting and rotating skillet to coat bottom, then pour excess batter back into bowl. (if batter sets before skillet is coated, reduce heat slightly for next crespella). Cook until just set and underside is lightly browned, about 30 seconds, then invert onto a clean kitchen towel in one layer to cool. (It will be cooked on one side only). Make 5 more crespelle with remaining batter in the same manner, brushing skilled with butter as needed and transferring to towel in one layer.

Make Sause: Heat butter in 1-2quart heavy saucepan over moderately low heat until foam subsides. Add flour and cook, whisking, 2 minutes. Add clam juice and water in a slow stream, whisking, then bring to a boi, whisking. Reduce heat and simmer, whisking occasionally, 5 minutes. Stir in cream, zest and pepper, then remove from heat.

Stir together butter (2T), shallot, salt, and pepper and spread 1 t on top of each filet. Put 1 crespella, pale side down, on a work surface, then place 1 salmon filet, buttered side down, in center of prespella and fold crespella around salmon, leaving ends open. Transfer to baking dish, arranging seam side down in sauce. Make5 more cannelloni with remaining salmon and crespelle in same manner, arranging in baking dish. Spoon remaining sauce over cannelloni. Bake until salmon is just cooked through and sauce is bubbling - 15 to 20 min.

I have two ways that are my favorites, but I do an awful lot of salmon - love it.

* Exported from MasterCook *


3 pounds Salmon fillet, preferably with the skin on
1/2 lemon -- just the juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar -- packed
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon -- chopped

Rinse fish & pat dry.
Lay fillet, skin down on double thickness of foil.
Ream juice from lemon and brush over fish.
Sprinkle with brown sugar and tarragon leaves.

Grill for approx. 10 min. or temperature reaches 135°F.
Roast in a 425 oven for approximately 18 min. or to 135°F.

and this one -

* Exported from MasterCook *

Preheat oven to 450°

Arrange ~1 lb. asparagus, trimmed, on a rimmed baking sheet.

Drizzle with 1 T. e-v. olive oil and turn the asparagus to coat.

Sprinkle w/salt & pepepr.

Place salmon on top of asparagus; sprinkle w/salt & pepper.

Roast till salmon is just opaque in center (135°), ~20 min.

Transfer asparagus and salmon to a platter. Spoon the sauce (below) over. Makes 4 servings.

Lemon-Caper Sauce

Mix together:

2 T. fresh lemon juice
2 T. minced red onion
1 T. olive oil
1 T. drained capers, chopped
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme (mine looks horrible right now, so used dry - not bad )
1/2 tsp. lemon zest (I use almost the entire lemon's zest)

This is really good -

I love salmon, don't know why I don't cook it more often. Both of these recipes look fabulous. Didn't you have another recipe with salmon and grapefruit a while (long while) ago? That one keeps nagging me to make but I cannot find it in the searches.

Laura, you are thinking of Bill's grapefruit beurr blanc (I think that is the name of it). Still searching for it. I have not made it but keep meaning to.

Here is a recipe Jean posted...

Well, I can't stand salmon, but when I have cooked it for other people, I would say that grilling seems to be the best and most popular way. At the Wolfgang Puck Café, the smoked-salmon pizza was always a big hit.

Cynthia, your cannelloni recipe sounds VERY interesting. It's not something that I would like, but I know a number of people who would probably rave about it.

I love salmon and we have it regularly. Usually, I just put it in a marinade of Yoshida's gourmet sauce (available at wholesale clubs) and let it sit for a while in the frig, then it goes on the grill. In the cold weather, I find that my GF grill does a great job of this in a short amount of time. That's about the only thing I ever use the Forman grill for, but it works great.

I (WE) love salmon marinated in a soy sauce/orange and brown sugar mixture---sort of a sweet and sour but caramelized topping---grilled in the oven and perfect every time!!!

It is soooo easy and DH can't get enough!!!! If you want the exact recipe, I will be happy to post!

There is also a great salmon in phyllo pastry with sesame seeds and a coconut milk sauce that is to die for---very time consuming but if you want to be a STAR...this will do it for you.....now to find that recipe in C@H........always a dinner party winner!!!!!!!!
