Honey Glazed Salmon with Stir Fry Vegetable Blend

I thought I would try a honey glaze  for my salmon tonight.  This was just a quick dinner so I think I will make it a quick post.

  • 12 o.z. salmon
  • 1 bag frozen stir fry vegetables
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 Tb honey
  • black pepper to taste

Heat the oil in large skillet.  Add to skillet the stir fry vegetables and cook over high heat for about 5 minutes.  Push the veggies to the side of the skillet and place salmon in the clear area skin side up; reduce heat to medium.  Drizzle half of the soy sauce over the vegetables and cook the salmon for about 4 minutes occasionally stirring the veggies.  Flip salmon over and drizzle with honey and remaining soy; sprinkle with pepper.  Cook an additional 3 – 5 minutes until cooked through.

Salmon Patties

I saw a segment of “Mr. Food” the other day and he was making some salmon burgers.  I had to give this a try.  I really was intrigued; I’d always used canned salmon for this type of thing but he was using raw salmon.  Nice texture and pretty good flavor although next time I will kick up the seasoning a bit; the dill sauce I served it with did though make up for any lack of flavor in the patty itself.

  • 1 pound raw salmon; skinless and boneless
  • 2 slice bread
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh dill
  • 1 jalapeno chopped
  • 1 Tbs diced onion
  • juice of one lemon
  • a dash or two of salt and pepper

Add all ingredients to food processor and pulse several times to combine; careful not to over process.

Form into patties (I made 4).  In large skillet heat over medium high heat and add a bit of oil.  Cook patties for about 3 minutes each side until cooked through.

Bruschetta Pasta and Grilled Salmon

I couldn’t resist using some more of that fantastic basil I have in my garden. It is flourishing right now despite the dry weather we are having. This pasta dish came out perfectly. I love the way the fresh ingredients play off of each other; the heat of the pasta adds just enough warmth to bring all the flavors together so there is no need to cook the “sauce”. Adapt to your liking; we went heavy on the garlic and the jalapeno was just an extra touch that sounded good. We did sprinkle a little more salt and pepper on at the table.

Bruschetta Pasta and Grilled Salmon

  • 2 Tbs fresh basil
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium tomato diced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbs diced jalapeno
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 1/4 cup parmesan
  • 12 o.z. sockeye salmon
  • 8 o.z. dry spaghetti

Combine basil with olive oil and chop(see my fresh basil post for a great technique).

Stir together chopped basil, garlic, tomato, salt, pepper, jalapeno and lime juice.  Set aside.

Prepare pasta as directed.  Grill salmon as desired; we did ours about 3 minutes per side sprinkled with salt and pepper.  Drain cooked pasta and toss with bruschetta mixture and butter.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
