Living on the west coast, we have eaten a great deal of salmon. This is ABSOLUTELY the best way we have found to cook it. It is so moist and the flavor is fantastic! Many reviewers have said that they think the cheese, especially the cheddar is unnecessary, and I have to admit that I omit the cheddar cheese myself. The flavour is a little too strong and it is extra fat that is not needed. I do like the sprinkling of parmesan with the paprika because it looks so nice when it is broiled. Using light mayonnaise and light sour cream or yogurt tastes just as good as the full fat versions and cuts down fat and calories even more. Thanks for all the great reviews!
Top Secret recipe. It's all about the sauce with this one. This sweet, tangy and slightly spicy sauce goes perfectly with salmon, but can also be used on chicken or ribs. Just be sure to watch the sauce closely as it cooks in case it starts to bubble over. It's gonna get thicker as it cools, so be sure not to overcook it. If it becomes too thick, just add a bit of water to thin it out. "Recipe created by Todd Wilbur www.TopSecretRecipes.com".
Salmon is my number one favorite "meat" so I'm always looking for a variety of ways to cook it. Here is another of several ways I like to prepare it. (I only make this with REAL maple syrup, so can't vouch for the results if you substitute.)
I just love Salmon and I'd say this is my favorite to date. This has an Asian touch. Lots of flavor. I did make this with Salmon but its possibilities are endless like tuna, Mahi Mahi, shrimp, orange roughy... I bet grilled pineapple in this marinade along with the fish or meat would be great! Cooking in a basket will caramelize the fish giving it a crispness and ease in turning it and cooking in foil will keep it moist as well as ease in flipping the fish. Cooking time is up to you I like my salmon very tender so I tend not to overcook it. This is great served on white rice. Leftovers would be great on a salad. The picture here is the salmon made under the broiler.
I don't remember where I got this recipe but it is totally sinful! We eat ALOT of salmon and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. This is really different and has a very rich taste. It would be an appropriate dish for a special night or dinner party but is easy enough for a work night.
For salmon enthusiasts like me this could be the start of a fantastic ‘salmon week’ (see parts II + III). This combination of fresh salmon filet and mashed potatoes will seduce you to eat more and more and more. The use of olive oil for the mashed potatoes adds an additional flavour. It is easy to make and delicious. Serve it with a green or a tomato salad.
This salmon dish is amazing! I was invited for dinner the other night and this was the main course. The red pepper flakes give off plenty of heat, but it's nicely balanced by the brown sugar and other ingredients. The sauce is heavenly!I asked for the recipe, and my host said she got it out of the latest issue of "Bon Apetit" which I had sitting on my coffee table! This comes from the "Saucebox" restaurant in Portland, Oregon.
Don't heat your kitchen up by turning on the oven! This recipe (from Cooking Light Magazine, May 2001) provides baking instructions, but these delicious salmon fillets also cook up in a snap on the George Foreman grill.
I found this in the "South Beach Diet Book".. even if you're not dieting... it's great. Just substitute real sour cream for the fat-free for a to die for experience. It's quick, simple and uses on hand ingredients.
This is very quick to prepare; I have marinated the salmon for as little as 1/2 an hour, yet it has plenty of flavor. For ease of preparation, we buy individually portioned salmon from a big-box store. We prefer to grill it on our indoor contact because it's SO quick. I've used straight brown sugar, Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, and straight Splenda - and they all work very well. But I think the brown sugar or the brown sugar blend will give you a little better color.
