Preppy Salmon

This is one of my most favorite salmon dishes ever! I have refered to it as Pink & Green “preppy” salmon! It is super easy yet delish enough to have at a dinner party! I do not care for the skin of fish, so I always ask my fish guy to remove the skin for me! This time I had bacon in the fridge, I crisped it up and crumbled it on top! YUM and I seared the salmon in the bacon drippings, to die… made the bright green “sauce” from stemed peas, pat of butter, splash of half & half and a little s&p. It is so good. Did I mention that?

My pops went by Dockside Seafood Market and called to tell me how amazing everything looked, so today I had to pop in and boy was he right! I love fresh seafood. Tonight I went with some beautiful organic salmon that was just perfectly pink!

I made a quick marinade of:

1 TB each:

molasses

soy sauce

spicy mustard

1 to 2 dashes of:

cinnamon & cumin

juice from 1 lemon

Sear salmon apx 7 mins on each side, depending on thickness. In a tish of olive oil.

While salmon is cooking zap or boil some baby peas (I am currently in love with the Green Giant simply steam) toss peas with a pat of butter and a splash of cream/ half & half/ milk whatever you have on hand and toss them in a blender or processor or mash and spoon over top of salmon. YUM

Salmon Pattie Debacle

Not since the fall of 2000 when I followed a Rachael Ray recipe for Pumpkin Pasta has a meal gone such a rye! I mean really, I loved Melissa on NFNS and I thought the salmon patties could be good~ WRONG!! Can salmon tastes like the metal in the can and is mushy and stinks and is just not something that I will ever cook with again. The mix was yucky texture and would not hold together and was just all in all BAD. Avoid.
