The hubby LOVES salmon. It is his favorite fish. I try to make it for him when I can but living here in cow country it’s a bit tough. I have bought frozen fillets and he enjoys them but I fear that thanks to Anderson Seafoods he is now well and truly spoiled.
You will recall my recipe using the uber-delicious Chilean Sea Bass that arrived at my door FRESH and ready to cook. In the same box was some delicious salmon. I could not cook all the fish at once so I popped the salmon in the freezer for another night. I will tell you right now that even though it had been frozen it still tasted fresh – the hubby was THRILLED.
This is restaurant quality fish, delivered to your door and it is yummy!
I always feel when you have a high quality cut of fish it is best to let it shine so here is a pretty simple recipe for Salmon with a late Summer Salsa on Brown Rice
For the Salsa:
I simply cut up:
1/2 an avocado
two small tomatoes
1/2 a green pepper
1/2 a seeded cucumber
2 TBSP chopped onion
I put it all in one bowl with salt and pepper and a splash of white vinegar. Everything but the avocado had come out of the garden. I let this sit as I made the rest of dinner.
I put 1 cup of short grain brown rice in about two cups of salted, boiling water and let it cook.
I preheated the oven to 350°.
I put some brocolli in a baking dish with a little bit of olive oil and salt and put it in the oven to roast.
Now for the salmon! I had let it thaw in the refrigerator during the day.
It was beautiful fish. A lovely light pink color with bits of that good-for-you fat running through it. I sprinkled both sides with salt and pepper and let it sit while I heated up my frying pan. I added about a teaspoon of canola oil to the pan. You want a fairly hot pan for this to work.
I put the fish in, skin side up and let it cook for about two minutes.
Then I turned them over and cooked them for two minutes on the other side.
Now I popped them into the oven while the rice finished cooking. It was about 10 minutes.
I pulled the fish and the broccoli out of the oven. I let the fish sit for about 5 minutes.
DON’T FORGET THAT WHEN YOU PUT THE PAN IN THE OVEN THE HANDLE WILL BE HOT. ALWAYS USE AN OVEN MITT.
Don’t learn the hard way!
I put the rice in the bottom of the serving dish.
Then came the perfectly cooked salmon.
Topped by the Late Summer Salsa.
With a little roasted broccoli on the side.
He loved it! There wasn’t a speck left in the bowl. I tried the salmon and it was delicious and I am not a fan of salmon. I am going to make another meal tonight with the second fillet and I might just eat it! That is saying something. This fish is THAT good – it will take a salmon hater and turn her into a salmon lover.
So head over to Anderson Seafoods and check out the salmon and everything else they have to offer. You WON’T be disappointed!
