"I like salmon, but I just don't know how to make it."
I hear this all the time from folks, and I don't blame them! It can be really tricky to get salmon right. Cooked enough, but not too much, and if it's cooked too much then it's super dry... yikes.
So, here are my favorite "salmon strategies".
4 4-ounce wild salmon fillets
2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup water
1.) Mix the vinegar, oil, water and ginger.
2.) Place the fish in a baking dish and marinate in sauce for 30 minutes.
3.) Preheat broiler, then broil fish skin side down for 6-8 minutes, depending on how you like your salmon cooked.
4.) Baste once or twice while broiling.
5.) Serve, using the remaining marinade as sauce.
1 pound wild caught salmon
2 avocados, sliced
4 green onions, chopped
2 Tbls coconut oil
3 Tbls sesame seeds
sea salt, to taste
ground pepper, to taste
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 lime, juiced
1 Tbl tamari
1 Tbl coconut vinegar
1 head broccoli or 2 cups green beans
1.) Melt the coconut oil in a skillet.
2.) Season the salmon with salt and pepper, then sear in hot pan for about 4 minutes on each side depending on thickness of filet.
3.) Stem or blanch broccoli, then add to all liquid ingredients.
4.) Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Miso Glazed Salmon
1.5 pounds wild caught salmon fillets, cut into whatever ounce portion per serving)
2 Tbls nonGMO miso
4 scallions, sliced
1/4 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 Tbl sesame seed (black seeds make for an especially elegant look)
2 Tbls coconut vinegar
1 Tbl fish sauce
1 inch fresh ginger, minced
1.) Preheat the oven broiler.
2.) Grease a glass baking dish with coconut oil
3.) Toast sesame seeds in a small dry skillet until fragrant, but NOT burnt (this should only take about 3 minutes).
4.) In a small bowl, whisk miso, vinegar, fish sauce, and ginger until smooth.
5.) Place fillets, skin down in the greased dish. Brush with the miso mixture and broil the salmon on middle/top rack.
6.) Cook until nearly fully opaque (about 6-8 minutes)
7.) Serve topped with sesame seeds, green onions and cilantro
