Are you all turkeyed out? I've been getting so many request for Non-Holiday recipes and Salmon leads the list. So here goes.....Firstly you have to select the best ingredients and in The Bahamas Alexandria Papageorge of Seafood best has the best salmon in the country. Point blank finish. She sells to hotels and restaurants, but will also do home deliveries. Contact her at....12423578134
Secondly stop overcooking your seafood and fish, unless you want fried dry, a Bahamian specialty. About 4 minutes one side and 3 on the next.
Some salmon ideas you may want to try:
1. Spicy maple butter glaze: 1 cup maple syrup/ 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce/ 2 oz butter / I jalapeno will make and amazing glaze that you can baste your salmon with before and after you've cooked
2. Tomato caper vinaigrette: 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes/ 2 tsp capers/ 4 pieces of basil, chopped/ 2 cloves slices garlic/ 1/4 cup sliced olives/ 1/2 cup of very good olive oil. Gently warm all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.
3. Blackened Salmon with pigeon peas salsa: You can easily purchase a good blackening spice these days or you can make your own but it's very difficult to make a spice that's balanced. SO BUY IT! LOL. To make the salsa medium dice 1/2 cup of pineapple, wash and strain a can of cooked pigeon peas, 3 tbsp of diced red onion and green bell pepper, 2 tbsp honey, juice from 1 lime and a touch of goat pepper if you like heat. I also add a little cilantro and celery leaves chopped to mine as well, but that optional. Mix everything together and just before you are ready to serve it add 1/4 cup of heated pure organic coconut oil and it will be amazing.
4. Cajun crayfish salmon sauce. Alex has precooked crayfish meat at a great price.
1 cup crayfish 1 cup coconut milk 1 glove garlic minced, 2 tbsp tomato paste, a sprig of thyme, 1/2 onion, diced, 1 tbsp blackening spice. 1/4 cup coconut oil. Sauteed the onions, garlic and thyme in the coconut oil. Add the tomato paste and spice. Add coconut milk and then the precooked crayfish meat. Simmer and serve.
So many more ideas are coming to mind but start with these!
