Fresh Salmon...help.

I'm not a big fan of Salmon but after all the work my family put into catching, filleting and packaging so much of it I'm trying to turn a new leaf. Unfortunately, I'm not finding a recipe that says "outstandingly yummy" lol anyone out there have any good suggestions?

Welcome to DC. Try cooking in butter, garlic and dill.

Serve this over some mashed sweet potatoes and it's heavenly.

TNT: Salmon With Jalepeno Lime Sauce

4 (5-ounce) salmon fillets, all bones removed
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Sauce
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon unsalted butter
3 large jalapeno peppers, seeded and cut into a julienne
1/2 cup sour cream (low-fat is ok, non-fat isn't) or Greek-style yogurt
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Dash of salt and pepper

Optional
Fresh lime wedges
Snipped fresh chives

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Lightly oil a shallow baking dish. Place the salmon in the dish, skin side down. Combine the lime juice and olive oil; brush over the fish. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside for 15 minutes. Place the fish in the oven and bake until the fish is almost opaque, about 8 minutes for each inch of thickness. Remove the skin.

While the fish cooks, prepare the sauce: Over a medium-low heat; heat the olive oil and butter together; add the jalapenos and saute until tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Add the sour cream and heat through, do not boil. Remove from heat; stir in the lime juice, salt and pepper.

Transfer the fish to warm plates; spoon sauce over. Sprinkle with minced chives and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

We LOVE fresh wild salmon & cook it often in many different ways. Our two favorites are both very simple.

One is to simply place your filets or steaks into a buttered baking dish & top with some melted butter laced with some fresh lemon juice & freshly ground black pepper. then top the fish with thinly sliced fresh lemon & roughly chopped fresh dill. Bake until done, which, depending on the thickness of the fish & cooking at 350 degrees could be anywhere from 15-25 minutes.

Second favorite way is "teriyaki" style. Just go online & find a "Salmon Teriyaki" you like (most of the sauces involve soy sauce, honey, ginger, & garlic). I have a couple of good ones, but unfortunately I'm still suffering from a computer crash & don't have my recipes restored yet - grrrrrr. But any basic Salmon Teriyaki recipe you find will be good. It's one of those recipes that's extremely difficult to screw up.
