Hi everybody! As promised, some salmon recipes that I have invented… and they actually turned out good!
Apple Cider Salmon
Apple cider vinegar
Put salmon steak into low-sided container, just a little bigger than the piece of salmon. Pour the apple cider vinegar on the salmon until it is just covered. Add some sugar, about 1/4 cup, because the vinegar is very tart. Then, sprnkle some dried basil (about 1-2 tablespoons) on the salmon and put the whole thing in the fridge for 2-12 hours.
I pan fried it when it was done, and then added the marinade to the pan as a sauce – I guess I made a reduction out of it (in cooking terms). I served my salmon on a bed of thinly sliced canteloupe, which was weird but quite good! The fruity-ness of the dish is quite delicous!
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons corn meal
Combine egg and milk in a small bowl and beat slightly. Combine dry ingredients in another bowl. Get a frying pan going on medium heat and put a little oil in it. Cut salmon steak as you buy it in store into slivers about 1 inch (2 cm) wide. Cover in egg mixture, then put in flour mixture, then in frying pan. Don’t fry too long on any one side – keep turning them. Don’t overcook them either (remember, some people eat salmon raw, so it’s okay if it’s a little rare in the center). Once they are done, try these dipping sauces: Plum sauce (excellent!), soya sauce (also very good!), Raspberry salad dressing (surprisingly good, though admittedly not for everyone). I bet a mild BBQ sauce would work, too, or even… drum roll please… sour cream! 🙂
My next experiment will be to try marinating the salmon in the raspberry salad dressing – they say any acid will work! We’ll see! I bet the greek salad dressing would work, too……. 🙂 Take care everybody!
