Simple baked salmon with raspberry-pepper dressed greens

Maybe this is less of a recipe and more of an idea. Every so often life gets a little extra busy and you really want to enjoy something spectacular — without it taking any more of your time. I found this gorgeous bag of greens with edible flowers at the farmer’s market, then we picked up some fresh salmon — and that was that. It was totally satisfying, felt completely indulgent and couldn’t have been simpler.

Salmon burgers with quick pickles and sriracha mayo

I honestly think pickles will make any dish better, and this was no exception to that made-up rule. Burgers in the summer are the best, so why not switch it up with a little seafood? Pick a Saturday or Sunday, get all your ingredients fresh and make these in the afternoon with a nice beer.

Curry broiled salmon over Greek yogurt slaw

A little mint goes a long way. The herb really makes this yogurt slaw pop and, along with the golden raisins, helps balance the earthy curry flavor in the salmon. A perfect Saturday meal!

Baked salmon with a peanut-cilantro relish

I was a little concerned about using a shallot in the relish. The original recipe called for using the greens from one large scallion, but it was the one ingredient I forgot at the grocery store. I used a finely minced shallot instead, and it actually worked beautifully. The trick was rinsing the shallot under cold water after cutting. I saw Rick Bayless use this method on television once to mellow the taste of raw onions in salsa, and I figured it could mellow a shallot for relish! It sure did. The relish really blew this dish away.

The original recipe called for fennel at the bottom of the pan, but fennel isn’t always my favorite. I loved the fish with the onions (which also picked up the glaze beautifully) and would even suggest adding broccoli as well.

May salmon may be a bit brighter than yours. Sockeye salmon was on sale when I went to the grocery store, so I went that route. Sockeye is more bright orange-red (when raw) than traditional pink salmon. Both are perfectly fine to use!

One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants, Andies, was the full inspiration for this dish. They always have amazing dill basmati rice, and lots of other great, fresh dishes with Mediterranean flavors.

    This was my Valentine's Day dinner! I narrowed it down to three different fish dishes and let Bill choose his favorite. I served this over a simple fried rice - just rice, veggies and soy sauce.

This was my Valentine’s Day dinner! I narrowed it down to three different fish dishes and let Bill choose his favorite. I served this over a simple fried rice – just rice, veggies and soy sauce.

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon rice or cider vinegar
  • 2 salmon filets, skinless
  • sesame seeds
  • green onion, chopped

Whisk together the honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and vinegar. Pour the sauce over the fish either in a shallow rimmed baking dish or in a freezer bag. Let marinade for about 15 minutes

Remove the fish from the container and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under the broiler and cook for about 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. The salmon is cooked through when it is opaque and can be easily flaked with a fork.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onion. Serve over fried or steamed rice with vegetables.

Makes two servings.

This is a gorgeous, gorgeous meal that takes so little effort. What could be better? Totally a show-off meal for a date, your parents or any other person in your life you feel like impressing the socks off. Your pets do count, I suppose.

  • 2 salmon fillets, skin removed (optional if you don’t mind it)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 4 sprigs of thyme, leaves removed
  • 2 medium-sized parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used skim)
  • 2 teaspoons horseradish
  • 8-12 Brussels sprouts (depending on their size), stems removed and cut in half
  • 1-2 teaspoons chili powder

    I’m still pretty much a newbie when it comes to fish. The biggest thing to remember about cooking fish is to be gentle — you’re not working with steak here.

Place the salmon fillets in a glass baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with the salt, pepper, thyme and garlic, being sure to cover

both sides of the fish. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and let rest in the refrigerator for a half hour to two hours.

Put the cubed parsnips and sweet potatoes in a small sauce pan. Add the butter, milk, 1 teaspoon of the horseradish and salt and pepper. Simmer on low until the cubes are soft enough to mash. You may need to add a few more tablespoons of milk if it all evaporates. Puree the parsnips and sweet potato in a blender or food processor. Mix in the last teaspoon of horseradish.

In the meantime, place the Brussels sprouts halves on a baking sheet or glass dish. Toss with the salt, pepper, chili powder and a few drizzles of olive oil.

In a 350 degree oven, bake both the Brussels sprouts and fish on the same rack (if

Prep ahead! Get your chopping done in advance so all you have to do is throw things in the oven or let them simmer on the stove.

you can, if not try to keep the racks close and place the Brussels higher). Bake for about 20 minutes, turning the pan once but not flipping the fish. The salmon will be ready when it is opaque and flakes easily.

Layer the puree, Brussels sprouts and fish on two plates. Garnish with additional thyme.

Makes two servings.
