The best salmon recipe ever!!!

I hope I don’t get in trouble for sharing this one! I needed to take a quick trip back to the states (hence the 12 day absence from my blog) and wanted to make a special dinner for the man since he wouldn’t be joining me. So I thought I would make a good ol’ fashioned, California style dinner. We have a few specialty stores in Antigua (quite expensive though) and after digging through the freezer section, I found salmon and it actually looked decent. The sauce in the recipe is what makes it SO good. Think, Simon and Garfunkel. Gather a lot parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Chop it up and add loads of chopped garlic. What you see below is the amount I use for 2 people (I was not kidding when I said gather a lot!).

Next gather your sauces: balsamic, soy sauce, olive oil, sesame and worcestershire sauce. As usual, I don’t have exact measurements but I tend to use less soy sauce and worcestershire sauce.

OK! Mix the sauces and the chopped herbs together and just smell the aromas (take a bite if you like):

Pour this delicious mixture over your salmon and let it marinate for as long as you have the patience for (I have gone as short as 30 minutes and over night).

Now, we don’t have a bbq, but if you do, it’s so much better bbq’d in a foil boat. I only have an oven that goes no higher than 250F (what the heck is that about?) so I had a slow cooking session with my salmon. If you have normal oven, pre-heat to 350 and place fish inside for 8 minutes. Next, turn it up to a broil and let it give the top of that salmon a nice dose of heat for about 4 minutes (keep you eye on it). Pull it out and voila! A future post will include the pasta recipe you see photographed behind the salmon.

    Thanks! We’ve been trying to add more fish in our diet. I’m adding this to our menu next week. We have all those herbs in our garden so this is perfect.

    Yes! Please let me know how it turns out! If you can, use a bbq. If you use the oven, hit broil at the very end to make the herbs nice and crispy!
