Salmon Challenge (July)

OK all, this is salmon MONTH. Cook your salmon sometime in July and tell us what you did and how it went over. Recipes are appreciated.

I'll be doing mine probably either tomorrow or Friday night. I'm still deciding on HOW to do it. Whether I will do lemon marinade or wild west. Dill sauce or not.

Edit: The week got away from me so I thought I would just post this baby for a full month since some of us need more time.

We are in the same frame of mind Alix. We'll be having salmon with lemon grass pesto tonight.

Lemon Grass Pesto

80 g extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 stalks fresh lemongrass, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1-2 serrano peppers, finely chopped and seeded (add more or less depending on how much heat you like)
salt and pepper, to taste

You may put all ingredients, except the olive oil, in a food processor to chop then add the olive oil while the processor is running. Rub the pesto on your favorite fish, I used salmon, bake in 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until done. Drizzle fish with hollandaise sauce, serve with a side of white rice or your favorite pasta and/or veggie side and enjoy!

i made mine last night, but i didn't take pics because the camera chip was full.

i've mentioned this before, but i top my salmon filets with chunks of a very simple dill/basil butter (a coupla sweet basil leaves and a stem or two of dill, chopped and blended with a fork into about a half stick of unsalted butter).

sprinkle with a good amount of fresh cracked white pepper and sea salt, and put it under the broiler, skin side down for about 20 minutes or so, depending on the thickness. about 10 minutes in, i add more chunks of the butter to melt over top.

i like mine still a little rare in the center; dw prefers hers cooked well through.

Didn't take pictures but it sure was delicious! Tonight was pan grilled tilapia with mango-habanero sauce. Absolutely fabulous!

Oh sure, Alix - post this while I'm trying to clean out the fridge before we leave on vacation. My salmon is still in the freezer and has to wait until we get back.

The good part is that I will get to scope out everyone else's great ideas when I'm ready.

Um...I sort of messed up this week myself. We're doing the prime rib thing tonight and dinner out tomorrow, and then going out of town for the weekend. I'm going to rename this thread for the month. Will that give you enough time? Salmon sometime in July?

Yes, I can do sometime in July. Will holler when we get back with a load of dirty laundry and a bunch of sunburns.

July is good for the salmon challenge. Better yet, I'll have DH grill it since it will be hotter then. TTYL
