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.
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.
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.
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.
