Ready In:




  • Preheat grill to high heat. Make a tray out of heavy-duty foil large enough for the salmon fillet by folding a long piece in half and folding up all four sides, dull side up.
  • Grease foil tray with olive oil until well coated. Place foil tray on a platter or metal tray to transport to the grill. In a small bowl, mix together ginger, basil, paprika, cumin, coriander, turmeric, salt and cayenne pepper. Place salmon fillets in foil tray skin side down ( or boned side up if it is skinned); Squeeze lime juice over salmon and rub the ginger spice blend into the fillet.
  • Transfer the foil tray to the hot grill. Cook in a hot covered grill for 10 minutes per inch of thickness of the fish fillet. Do not overcook or it will be dry. Turning is not necessary.
  • You may bake the salmon at 475°F for about 15 minutes.
  • For the green curry sauce, stir together green curry paste, curry powder, coconut milk, chicken broth, fish sauce, sugar, and basil leaves in a sauce pan. Simmer for 5 minutes. Spoon atop grilled rubbed salmon fillets and then top with fresh squeezed lime juice and fresh basil.

<ul> <li>In the summer of 2009, my DH and I moved to McGrath, Alaska (on the Iditarod trail) to spend our first of many years there. We live a semi-primitive life, only electricity for appliances, no indoor plumbing and wood for heat.</li> <li>We live in a small village of around 300 people. We are off the road system and everything is flown in. There are 2 stores here but they are small and what is sold is around 2 times what it costs to buy it elsewhere. Many people buy their groceries in other parts of the state and mail it back. Game meat (moose and bear) and fish are very popular. I work part time at the local post office. Most of our meals are soups, stews and one pot. DH cooks dinner about half the time.</li> <li>I like to fish, pick berries, and of course cook. I like to volunteer to bake for the local school bake sales. I like to collect recipes for foods that I have a lot of and can easily get, hence fish, local berries and rhubarb are very popular items on my availability list. I don't have much of a knack for making up my own recipes, so this site has been wonderful as I used to stick to around a dozen different recipes. Before I got married, Top ramen and mac and cheese in a box were my usual foods.&nbsp;</li> <li>My life was different before I moved here. I had more time to cook, now I have very little free time and I cherish the little time I get to sit down.</li> </ul> <p>This life is not for every one, but it is simple and we are learning to live life and enjoy it. ( You don't move to Alaska for the weather)</p> <p><br /><img src= alt= /><img src= alt= />, <br />..................with***Mandy***...................with Carol AT <br /><img src= alt= /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br />................. with Alskann...................with Becky in Wisconsin <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> .............Adopted by Trinkets.................with Jacqueline in Ky <br /><img src= alt= />,with FrannieJ <br /> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket />, Adopted by Cindy J<img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> with K9 Owned <br /><img src= alt= /> <br />with Antifreesz <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> Package sent to HokiesLady ....................with lazy gourmet <br />Received package from Amanda in OZ <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket />with Susiecat Too, <br /><img src= alt= />................<img src= alt= />, <br /> by FloridaNative.................I adopted Diann is Cooking</p>
