Experiment Wish FishPosted: June 11, 2010
I have been trying to eat more fish these days. Obviously I want sustainable fish that is not raised in China or another country with lax food quality standards.
This seriously limits my choices.
I tried sardines and I hated them. Way too fishy. I love trout and I am getting to know salmon.
Last night was another getting to know you salmon dish.
I marinated in salmon is dijon mustard, dill, a little EVOO and S&P.
This was wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. I over cooked it a bit because I am new to the species and Sockeye has a really love fat content and dries out pretty fast. I did really enjoy the flavor though. Nick agreed about the dryness but liked the taste. On the side I had some roasted carrots and a “risotto” of sorts with long grain brown rice, mushroom and spinach.
This looks more like a meal for winter, but without an actual grill it is hard to cook “summer” meals 😦
What is your favorite salmon and recipe?
