Default Salmon dishes.

Broil or grill this sweet and citrusy salmon. Enjoy it hot or chilled for a picnic.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons molasses
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 (5-ounce) salmon fillets or steaks
1 orange, juiced

1. Preheat broiler.
2. In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, lime juice, lemon juice, molasses, salt and pepper; mix well. Place salmon on a broiling pan, skin-side down. Brush liberally with marinade and broil until crisp on the outside and flesh flakes easily, about 7 minutes per inch of thickness. Remove from broiler and sprinkle immediately with orange juice. Serve hot.

Makes 4 servings.

Nice recipes, Anne ! The citrus is a great way of cutting the richness of salmon. I like steamed salmon as well. How do you do yours ? ( If you steam it).

Hi Genny!

I steam my salmon on a rack, above boiling and then simmering water.
I slices of lemons and spices in the water, to give the fish extra flavour too.

Take care,
Anne

As a salmon lover myself, let me add to this discussion by saying that you should also avoid farmed fish. Wild may cost more, but it's better - farmed fish do not swim freely so the meat is softer, they are kept in contained environments which invites desease, and they are frequently dyed since farmed meat doesn't get that healthy pink color.

Wild is better. And Alaskan Copper River salmon is the best.

Hi Dawg!

I 100% agree. When buying salmon look for wild, if you can get it.
Or, catch it yourself!
We have a Salmon Derby in Owen Sound , where I live, every August.
Fishermen come from all around to catch the salmon and some of them are huge.

Take care,
Anne

Teriyaki Alaska Salmon

4 salmon Alaska steaks (about 6 oz. each), skinned, or 1-1 lbs fillet, skinned!
1.25 cups soy sauce
1/3 cup sake (Japanese rice wine), mirin (sweet Japanese cooking wine),
or sherry
6 Tbsp granulated sugar *you can subsitute honey for the sugar*
3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 Tbsp minced or grated ginger root
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl and stir until the sugar dissolves. To prepare the salmon: quickly rinse the salmon under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Divide each steak into 2 pieces by cutting along either side of the central bone and then discarding the bone; alternatively, cut the fillet into 8 equal pieces. Place the salmon in a shallow glass or ceramic container and pour 1 cup of the marinade over the fish. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning the fish occasionally. Let come to room temperature before cooking. Prepare grill.

Remove the salmon from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Place the fish on an oiled grill rack. Position the fish 5 to 6 inches from the heat source, turning once and brushing with the reserved marinade several times, until the flesh is just opaque, 3 to 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Serve the salmon at once with reserved marinade as dipping sauce.
Makes 4 servings

Hello Anne,

How did you know I wanted a good teriyaki marinade? I have made one myself for years, but it lacked something. I made up yours and it had a certain zing that I loved. It also came at the right time as my older daughter is here on her hometime.( She is an owner/op truck driver). She adores seafood, especially salmon. I'm looking forward to supper. Thanks again.

Hi Anne

Just wanted to let you know how fantastic the teryaki salmon was. Had put some of the marinade to one side and used it to brush on the portabello mushrooms I was grilling to make portabello mushroom burgers. Just out of this world.

Just wondering- do you have any more recipes? Would love to try some more. Take care.

HONEY HERB SALMON

INGREDIENTS:

* 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
* 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
* 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
* 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers, crumbled (or use a combination of parsley and other favorite herbs)
* Dash salt

PREPARATION:
Combine oil, herbs, and seasonings in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Combine the oil mixture with the honey in a large food storage bag; place salmon fillets in the mixture, turning to coat well.

Just FYI, Anne, men & boys should watch out for lavender. Seems there is a link to some - unintended, shall we say - effects to the male body that most males wouldn't like happening.

At least, I think it's lavender....

Worth looking up again, I think........

Is there any more "no-no's" that males should stay away from? This is a all-female house, but hopefully, one day, there will be at least one male in it. Not a good idea giving him things that will make him sick/ in pain.

Thanks

Hi Dawg!
Hi everyone!

I wasn't aware that lavender might do that. :? Gonna read that up. Please note in the recipe with the lavender in it, you can replace the ingredient.
It's interesting what seedview mentioned as well. Gonna look that up too.

Take care,
Anne

Seedview, in general I would advise males to stay away from all-female houses.

:lol:

I mentioned the lavender because I remembered reading something a few months ago about lavender having 'feminizing' affects on the male body. I have no idea if it interferes with something hormonal or emphasizes something hormonal - I'm not even 100% certain it was lavender. But it does point up that because the male & female of the species do have chemical and hormonal differences that influence certain development, certain foods/herbs will have different effects on them. Some that might be beneficial to women may actually be harmful to men. And vice-versa.

It never hurts to read up on such things.

I am
Dawg

Males should also avoid liquorice. It has antiandrogen and antitestosterone properties. It's good for females therefore who might have too much of these things.

https://content.karger.com/ProdukteDB...name=91302.pdf
Here's some work that shows this scientifically - btw - they say that after 4 weeks of stopping liquorice consumption, testosterone levels were back up to normal, ie no permanent effects!

https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...G=Search&meta=

NB) As with many foods the amount of 'liquorice root' found in liquorice sweets varies, so one has to be v careful about the 'scientific conclusions' that some scientists come to! :lol:

Thanks deebeelicious and Dawg for the info. Can use all the help I can get.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Dawg. Love the joke. On August 15th, I will be celebrating 27 years as a single parent without any help from anyone - male or female. The guys say that I'm too independent as I have learned how to do some plumbing, carpentry, etc. as we can't afford to hire anyone. But through it all, my daughters and I still long for the sticks / country. Organic gardening is a hobby, but also help immensely with the non-existent budget. Even the girls know how to can produce and help me stock the pantry with store-bought items from time to time. All of this gets me into trouble with the women. I'm so happy that I can get such amazing help from this group of individuals.

Give my love to Mrs. Dawg.

Hi everyone!

Am gonna post some more salmon recipes when I get the chance.
Haven't looked up the lavender yet, but, I'm gonna later.
Anyone know any good natural remedies for laryngitis? I seem to get that quite a bit.
I have it today.
Hope I don't have that when I have the chance to meet Dirk and Tracy. That would be just awful!
I've never had my tonsils removed. They're 100% OK. Weird. :?

Take care,
Anne

p.s. I can at least still type! :lol:

Watch out for how much fish and the types of fish you're putting in your diet. Because of all the mercury in our oceans, some varieties of fish are only safe to eat 1x per month. Salmon and Orange Roughy are in that class (plus Roughy has been overfished). Tilapia isn't and I don't think Cod was either.

If you've eaten fish very regularly and are feeling tired a lot, the mercury from the fish might have built up too much in your body.
