Salmon: How do you like it?
 
Ok CBadRider, let's cook!

One of my favorite things to eat is Salmon. How I like to cook it:

Take your fillet (after you have rinsed it, and checked for any bones that may have been left in there) and give it a coating on both sides with olive oil. Then, a light sprinkling of Kosher salt, and some Dill. (Or any other spices of your own choosing.)
Wrap the fillet in foil, making it as air-tight as possible. The idea with this is to cook the salmon in its own steam.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, no more. Carefully unwrap the foil. Watch for a rush of steam when you do this. The salmon will be done to perfection, flaking easily and not dry at all. Freaking delicious!

So, how do you like it? Baked, grilled, poached, Canned, or just smoked from Costco?
What cooking techniques do you like best?

+1.
Alternatively: Salmon patties. My wife also has some lovely fish cake recipes for salmon.
Or Brazilian Moqueca de peixe. Trout would be more authentic I guess, but we have a recipe for it that calls for salmon. Wonderful stuff.

Sashimi, smoked, grilled, blackened, broiled, baked. I like it all.

LesterOfPuppets 03-05-12 06:31 PM

My favorite is pan-fried. A little EVOO and a pat of butter in the pan. Salt+Pepper. Cook skin side first, then flip. Put a little minced garlic in the pan just before it's done.

Huge fan of lox but I dunno how to make it. Hot smoked salmon is good too.

I've never had salmon I didn't like, though. Even canned salmon cakes are good!

Mom used to make some good grilled salmon steaks. Half cook some bacon, wrap around salmon steaks, fasten with toothpics then cook on the grill. Tastee vittles!!!!

My buddy smokes up the left over's from the fillets and they are amazing. I like the fillets baked.

RubenX 03-05-12 06:34 PM

I don't eat fish :\

bigbenaugust 03-05-12 06:50 PM

Oh, I forgot smoked, too. Baked might be my least favorite way to eat salmon.

curbtender 03-05-12 07:00 PM

Fresh caught salmon, a little white wine and fresh minced basil and garlic, baked for about 20 minutes...hahaha good stuff.

ahsposo 03-05-12 07:08 PM

Straight from the can.

I have to fight the cats off which adds to the fun!

Preheat oven to 500. Sprinkle lemon pepper on both sides of the filets. On one side spread thin layer of mayo but be careful not to disturb seasoning too much. Put on foil lined cookie sheet and into oven. Shut off heat immediately. Let sit in oven for 40 mins, to bake in slow heat of oven that is off.

So moist. Yum.

Blackened is always good, but if you have the time, slow smoked on the grill is my favorite.
Get one of those cedar planks, and soak it in water, and then lay the fillet on it. Make a mustard sauce (German stone ground is a good base), paint the fillet, and cover it in dill. Keep the temp at no more than 200, and sit back with a bottle of wine and wait for goodness.

Blackened.

Staked open and roasted in front of alder coals.

Native American style! I've had it that way a couple times, never attempted that preparation myself, though. I feel positive my salmon would meet the ground a few times before I got it staked up!

Sauté with a little soy sauce, lime juice, garlic and nam pla, and a pinch of brown sugar. Serve with jasmine rice.

I do something similar. Place on foil, sprinkle with salt, add a drizzle of olive oil and some lemon juice, but then fold the foil into a tent around the fish. Bake at 400F for 12 minutes or so. The lemon juice will start to boil and steam the fish. And there's no pan to clean up afterward, just throw the foil away.

I also love grilled salmon and salmon burgers. Another favorite baked salmon is this recipe.

Served with fiddleheads, morels and a savory rice.

Lets eat.

fuzzbox 03-05-12 09:19 PM

smoked, mixed with cream cheese and on some crackers or bagel.

UmneyDurak 03-05-12 09:51 PM

Sashimi.

Shimagnolo 03-05-12 09:56 PM

All these suggestions seem rather harsh just for someone who:( rides on the wrong side of the street.

tuxbailey 03-05-12 10:10 PM

sashimi

overthehillmedi 03-05-12 11:05 PM

Just about anyway you want as long as it's not an atlantic salmon, even my cat (bless her) wouldn't eat that stuff. Although Millcreek's method is da bomb.

Don't knock it til you try it.

Salmon is good fish and perfectly suited to sushi/sashimi.
