Best Marinated Salmon Recipe – Delicious Appetizer

About marinated salmon

 

It used to be a very occasional situation for me, to enjoy marinated salmon. I have tryied a marinated salmon on our summer holiday by the sea for the first time.

Last summer I discovered my best marinated salmon recipe. I had to try it immediately. It was a very hot summer day and I found  the idea of preparing marinated salmon for dinner great. The time showed it was a great idea, indeed. The marinated salmon is very tasty and it is a great option of serving a light dinner in the summer. Usually it is served as a small appetizer.

To make a marinated salmon is very simple and quick. But it takes a little patience to wait until a marinated salmon is served. For the best result it is good to leave a salmon to marinate over night. But if you’d like to enjoy your marinated salmon the same day it is prepared, let it rest in the fridge for at least two hours before serving.

The more fresh salmon fillets you have to marinate, the better. It is the best to cut skinless, boneless salmon fillets into the thin slices, as  you would  smoked salmon, but a little thicker.

Serve your marinated salmon with a little of marinade poured over and a small green leaf salad or a piece of crunchy fresh ciabatta bread.

I hope you will enjoy preparing your marinated salmon at home. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

Simple Oven Baked Salmon – With Juicy Vegetables

Simple Oven Baked Salmon Fillets

If you would like to enjoy a light, well balanced dish at dinner, prepare yourself a simple oven baked salmon with juicy vegetables. The combination of baked salmon fillets and fresh vegetables makes the dish delicious.

Talking about vegetables to combine with a salmon, there are many more options definitely. I found the best a mix of a cherry tomatoes, spring onions and red chilli pepper to use in this recipe. The chilli pepper adds a slight spicy touch to your dish.

I don’t like overcooked vegetables as a result of baking process. Especially cherry tomatoes tend to be ready very soon. The salmon fillets need a little more time to be done perfectly. I start with baking a salmon first and I add vegetables later. I bake my vegetables for 10 minutes. But if you don’t like the skin from cherry tomatoes being peeled away too easily, bake them a little shorter, about 4-5 minutes.

Serve your oven baked salmon fillets immediately. There is no additional side dish needed to enjoy your dinner. But if you feel like having something small with your baked salmon fillets, try a simply cooked sweet potato. In this case, start making your dinner with cooking the sweet potato in the pot of boiling water. To cook a large sweet potato until soft takes about 45 minutes. Peel the cooked sweet potato, cut into the circles and share with the rest of your family. :)

I hope you will enjoy cooking your simple oven baked salmon. I’d be more than happy if you can leave me your comments below.

How To Bake Fish in the Oven – Fillets with Veggies Packaged in the Foil

 

IMG_3065

 

Fish baked with vegetables in foil makes a perfectly  balanced dish. If you prefer eating white fish and light dishes, low in calories, you would try to prepare your fish in foil definitely. The fish and vegetables will produce a lot of juices during baking. As a result of baking process, you will enjoy a delicate piece of fish.:)

Fish fillets baked in the oven, packaged in the foil is very easy to make. Each portion of the dish consists of a small amounts of different ingredients, so it is good to get them ready in advance, separated in the small bowls. It makes it easier to take one of them at a time and divide in between the fish fillets.

I bake my fish fillets in the aluminium foil. To prevent  the fish from getting in touch with the aluminium foil. I place a baking paper sheet on the foil first, then I arrange the fish fillets on the top. One fillet per each piece of foil covered with baking paper.

I usually bake a sea bass fillet in the foil with the vegetables. But I have tried to bake a halibut or a cod fillets this way also. All of them tasted delicious! It is important if you can yourself  a fresh, boneless and skinless white fish fillets.

Hope you will enjoy baking your white fish fillets with vegetables in the oven.  I’d be more than happy to find your comments below. :)

How To Bake Whole Fish – In the Salt Crust

IMG_2988

 

Baking a whole fresh fish in the oven remains as a great option to make a fish dinner anytime. There are many tips how to improve baking your whole fish to make it tasting delicious.

I found  baking a whole fish in a salt crust  the best option ever. I prepare a white fish this way everytime. The salt crust, which forms around the fish during baking, helps to keep all the juices inside of the fish, so as a result of slow baking process in the salt crust, you will enjoy delicious and juicy white meat.

I have tried two ways of preparing the salt for baking. I use a coarse sea salt only. One option is to add two egg whites into the salt and combine. Second option is a combining of  one whole egg with the coarse sea salt. Both options worked well for me! :) I never forget to grate a fresh lemon zest into the salt mixture. This will help to make your fish more aromatic. Even during the baking it smells great.

When ready, your fish requires a little attention before served. But it definitely is worth it. Let the fish rest for about 15 minutes after removing from the oven. Then simply break the salt crust with the help of cutlery knife and set the salt crust pieces aside. Transfer the fish to the clean baking tray. Remove the head and by using a sharp knife, cut the fish along the spine, then open up the fish, so it divides into the halves and remove all the bones by your hand easily. Now it is the time to arrange the meat on the serving plates, while trying to keep all the juices inside.

I love serving white fish with a simple fresh green salad.

 

Make your green salad more colourful with cherry tomatoes and baby mozarella.

 

  • In the large salad bowl combine one package of rocket leaves, 100 g halved cherry tomatoes and 1 cup baby mozzarellas.
  • Toss to combine all the ingredients properly.
  • Pour 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar and 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over your salad.
  • Serve immediately or store in the fridge if not serving straight away.

 

Hope you will get inspired by my recipe about how to bake a whole fish in the salt crust. I’d be more than happy if you can leave me your comments below. Enjoy your cooking!

Cooking Salmon on the Stove – Salmon Cubes with Broccoli

IMG_3018

Salmon fillets or a whole salmon is prepared on the grill or in the oven mostly. But there are many different variations of cooking salmon on the stove also. If you are looking for a simple way  of preparing a salmon fillets on the stove top, accompanied with a healthy vegetables, I have one simple recipe to share with you now.

The best is to use a skinless salmon fillets to prepare this dish, to cut them into cubes  and cook until cooked through, but slightly pink in the center.

All in one pan, this tasty and colourful dish can make a perfect dinner to share with your whole family. I like when broccoli keeps its fresh green colour, when served. I try to not overcook broccoli and I cook it over the steam usually. For this recipe I like to divide broccoli crowns into a small florets instead of cutting them into the thin pieces. Broccoli florets make a nice bite sized pieces and they look great on the serving plate also.

Serve your salmon cubes cooked on the stove immediately. If you fill like a little side dish would be nice to enjoy with your salmon dinner, serve with a simply cooked rice or a brown rice.

Enjoy your cooked salmon fillets dinner!

Oven Baked Salmon Fillets – Stuffed with Smoked Salmon

IMG_3038There are many varietes of preparing a salmon fillets in the oven. I am going to share with you the best oven baked salmon fillets recipe I have ever prepared. I stuff salmon fillets with a smoked salmon, the one, ready to use, you serve as a snack with a piece of fresh bread or a crunchy baguette, usually.

To prepare your salmon fillets ready to stuffing you need to butterfly it firstly, which simply means to cut each salmon fillet through to open it like a book. Using a sharp knife start cutting a salmon fillet through, from the right side to the left.  Moving a knife slowly through the fillet it will start to open easily. There is nothing complicated about butterflying your salmon fillet at all. :) Once the salmon fillet is opened, arrange a small smoked salmon pieces over a one half of each salmon fillet, then fold over to enclose filling.

This dish tastes great when served on its own. A little baby greens or a rocket salad with balsamic vinegar can be a great companion for your baked salmon fillets.

I usually serve baked salmon with a homemade lemon mayonnaise.

  • Into the mixing bowl add 1 egg yolk and 1 tsp mustard.
  • Whisk with an electric mixer, then start adding a vegetable oil by drops.
  • When all the ingredients combine together well, forming a smooth consistency, start pouring in more oil slowly, until you have used up the rest of oil /about 1 cup/.
  • Season with a pinch of salt, ground black pepper/optional/ and finally pour in a lemon juice from a half of small lemon and combine.
  • Lemon juice will make your mayonnaise lighter and smoother. Simply delicious!

Lemon mayonnaise adds a refreshing touch to your oven baked salmon fillets.
