Greetings. It is the season for fish. Here are two salmon recipes to help out.
Salmon Steaks with Soy and Ginger
4 salmon steaks (6 oz.)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Prepare broiler pan by lining with foil. Set rack about 4 inches from the heat. Turn on broiler. Then whisk remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. Place salmon on prepared pan and brush with the soy mixture. Broil until browned on top and opaque, about 6 minutes. Yummm!
1 large (1½ to 2 pound) salmon fillet, skinned
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon butter, unsalted
1 level tablespoon flour
1 ¼ cups unsweetened apple juice (or chicken stock)
2 green onions, finely sliced (white and green)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place salmon on a baking dish or rimmed baking pan and rub with a little salt. Roast about 15 minutes or until opaque throughout.
Meanwhile melt butter in a small pan over medium heat. Add flour and about ½ teaspoon salt; cook for about a minute, stirring constantly. Slowly add apple juice, stirring, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in green onions and season with salt and pepper. Remove salmon to a platter and break into about 4 large pieces. Top with sauce and serve immediately to four lucky diners.
Until next week, dear Reader, vaya con Dios.
