Food on Friday # 34 ~ Salmon (mostly)

Some say that we should aim to eat a couple of portions of oily fish a week.  And, that fish like salmon is a rich source of omaga 3, which does good things like stave off heart disease.  All I know is that a well cooked salmon steak is much more fun than taking cod-liver-oil capsules.

When I mentioned to my friend in Orange County that I was intending to do a post on salmon recipes, she said I should include some other ‘fishy’ dishes.  So there is also a cod recipe here.  Who am I to ignore a smart woman?

First up this Friday, from Cooking up the Pantry, we have a pretty easy dish for a dinner with an Indian flavour, cheats salmon tikka.

This is a really good post from Elise at Simply Recipes, because it also gives you some tips on buying salmon, (and other fish).  Leaving that aside, I’m certain my friends will like this dish, salmon with lemon cream sauce, partly because you could also save some and have it cold as the basis for a great salad.

This recipe fascinates me, so I make no excuse for including it today, even though it was only just in Food on Friday #32 which was all about BBQ.  From Teighan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest, I really must cook this cedar plank salmon with watermelon feta salsa.  (that’s if my friend ever lets me near her barbecue again).

Cooking fish in foil is a brilliant idea.  If Chungah from Damn Delicious hadn’t had this garlic butter salmon in foil recipe, I would have had to invent it myself.  You really must try this, it’s so quick, easy, and so damn delicious.
