Anyone have any salmon recipes? I'm trying to eat healthier. BUT, I'll take fried salmon recipes too. :thumbsup

Oh, and I don't care where the recipes originated - African, Asian, etc.

Thanks in advance. :thumbsup

mine are pretty simple

take the salmon, skin it if you want or need to (if you do if after cooked, it will be easier, but will leave a dark mark on part of the 'meat')

i put it in a glass baking dish with chopped onions, garlic, and green and red peppers, with the salmon seasoned well with seasoning salt and pepper, rub the garlic in if possible.

add about 3 tablespoons on water, cover with foil and bake on 400 for about 15 minutes, remove foil and broil for a few minutes to brown.


i also do this on the stove using basically the same ingredients.

goes very well with zuccini/squash with onions and yellow rice. the water that you add to the pan keeps the fish moist.

I usually just choose a marinade, let it soak, then bake, grill, or broil. Just Saturday I ate broiled Salmon and it was delicious!! I usually get different marinades each time just see how they taste. It is pretty simple to do. I hope you enjoy.

I make a decent mustard brown sugar crusted salmon.

Ingredients:

Salt + Pepper or seasoning salt
Brown sugar
Mustard powder

Take the skin of the salmon (you don’t have to but I prefer it) rub down with seasoning salt or salt and pepper. Then rub on the brown sugar. Sprinkle on the Mustard powder and sear, on both sides, in a pan that has a little hot olive oil (any oil or butter). Stick in the oven until done.

This can also be cooked by broiling the salmon. Take a cheap aluminum pan season the fish and add the brown sugar and mustard and put oven on broil. When sugar on one side is golden brown turn the fish over with tongs to get the other side. It gets a little smoky in the oven because the sugar is caramelizing. Enjoy.

Ok -- Here's one more............

TORTILLA CRUSTED SALMON (or any other fish you prefer)

4 (6-ounce) fillets
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon chile powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or fresh garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
2 tablespoons flour
2 large eggs or egg whites -- whatever's your preference
Vegetable oil for frying

1. Wash and pat dry fillets. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. In a shallow baking pan, toss tortilla chips with the next 6 ingredients (breadcrumbs through cayenne).
3. Whisk eggs/whites together in a bowl.
4. Lightly dust fillets with flour. Dip fish in eggs/whites, then dredge in tortilla chip mixture.
5. Heat enough oil in a large oven-proof skillet to cover the bottom over medium heat. When hot but not smoking, gently lay fish in skillet.
6. Brown on one side (about 2 minutes) then turn. Turn heat off and place skillet in oven to finish cooking, about 6-8 minutes for medium temperature (for a 1-inch thick piece of fish).
7. Remove skillet from oven and transfer fish to a cutting board (uncovered) to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Ok, this is the official recipe, but I usually mix and match my spices.

My salmon marinade (ok, I did borrow it from Cooking Light magazine) is the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never liked salmon until I tasted it prepared this way.

You need olive oil, honey, pepper, and low-sodium soy sauce. (Trust me!) I apologize for not giving exact measurements, but I usually don't bother to measure the ingredients out anymore. You cannot go wrong!

I mix all the liquids with a few dashes of pepper together in a plastic Ziploc bag. I let the salmon marinate in the juices for as long as I want (anywhere from 20 mins - half a day) and then bake it for 15 minutes or broil it for 6-8.

Try this and tell me what you think! :-)

mgtgcc - I need a lickin' lips smiley. That sounds delightful. :)

DaisysHair - I LOVE tilapia too!

BlackOnyx03 - sounds yummy. If you can gimme some measurements though (they don't have to be exact, just close enough if you can't do exact), it'll be all good. :)

More, more more!......

Bumping just in case there are any more.

Also, my mother told me how to make salmon from a can "Panamanian style". Not sure if it's Panamanian, but it came out pretty good if I say so myself. :) Made it a few days ago with jasmine rice.

Cut up onions and peppers, saute them in oil

Add tomato paste with 2 cups water OR some plain tomato sauce with not as much water as with tomato paste

Add salmon

Throw in some seasonings (I added red pepper, Adobo, black pepper, a little salt, Italian seasonings, basil, parsley, WHATEVER)

Let simmer until it's ready (whenever you think that is)

Tasted good to me. ;)

I've made this a few times and love it. Instead of a sandwich I'll have the salmon with a salad or steamed vegetables.

I am a new lover of salmon. I grilled some the other day with lemon pepper. I don't know how long I can go without it. Now, I it can be bought already marinated and sliced, all I have to do is grill it! Now with the recipes on here, oh my. :D
