Plan ahead the salmon will need to marinade for at least 8 hours, this marinade is enough for up to 16 ounces of salmon- you may adjust the fresh garlic and cayenne pepper to taste --- you will LOVE this!
This lovely baked salmon never lasts too long in our household. My DH absolutely loves salmon and I have cooked it many ways over the years for him. This recipe is one of his favorites cooked in the oven with dried parsley, olive oil and lemon juice.
DH and I made this for dinner last night and thought it was excellent. Another winner from Keiko O Aoki's "Easy and Healthy Japanese Food for the American Kitchen." DH and I doubled the green onions and found the salmon had to cook for significantly longer (about 20 mins) than what was posted in the recipe (though we realize oven heating times vary). This was very easy and required very little prep. I should mention that I always use reduced sodium soy sauce (I prefer San-J Tamari).
*This recipe is a personal treasure* ! The literal translation of the Icelandic word *Gravlaxsosa* is "smoked (or pickled) salmon sauce", but its versatility widens its use horizons. When I 1st came to Iceland & tasted this, I was in love for a lifetime. I've always bought it in commercially prepared jars, but only just recently acquired the recipe for it. I promise you will adore this easy-fix taste sensation! (Time does not include overnight refrigeration)
When I saw this recipe in the March issue of Cooking Light I knew that this would be a hit....I was just suprised on how much! My DH and DD are not keen on cilantro, but they were really impressed with this recipe. It is fast, easy and I would definately serve this to company. I served this with garlic scented brown jasmin rice and roasted beets. Devine!!!
As usual, I'm not sure where this recipe comes from, but we make it for small dinner parties. The parcels look so elegant, but the recipe takes no time at all! I make my own pesto with basil and mint for this, but you could use a jar pesto. Fresh is so much nicer tho!
