there was a pretty awesome deal on wild sockeye at the supermarket last night, so I thought I would make a nice dinner for my man and I since he's just started a tough job out in the suburbs and has to wake up at 4:45 am (poor guy). Salmon is super-easy to prepare and doesn't need much help, since it's got so much natural flavour, but I wanted to try somethind different than the lemon/salt/pepper/onion/tinfoil approach that I always end up doing. This recipe was really fast, tasty and only slightly more complicated, and I only had one pan and a bowl to wash at the end.

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp red onion, minced
1 tbsp capers, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp fresh thyme
1/2 tsp lemon peel, grated

1 x 1 lb salmon filet
1/2 lb asparagus, trimmed
1 tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 450. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Arrange asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle olive oil over top; turn asparagus to coat with oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay salmon filet over asparagus, season with salt and pepper. Roast until salmon is just opaque (15-20 mins.) Spoon sauce over salmon and serve.

i use lime instead of lemon. lemon is too strong.

here how i go:
poke holes all throughout the filet with a fork
mush minced garlic in the holes
squeeze a lime all over it
rub down with olive oil
coat with greek seasoning and basil
throw on the grill skin side down(don't you dare take that skin off)
let cook for a bit
squeeze a lil mo lime on
flip again (skin back down)
drizzle melted butter all over
turn down heat
take off
take nap
eat the rest
make somebody else clean up your mess

You know that fancy mustard and salmon is a classic combo?

Where's Grrtch, she does salmon with wasabi mayo I think.

I like those cheapy frozen salmon burges that you can get at Trader Joes or Whole Foods.. TJ's ha wasabi mayo, too... I just nuke the patty for a bit.. enough to thaw and then on both sides, I fry it in a very shallow puddle of oil until the edges are golden brown. The whole thing goes on a bun with the mayo and hopefully some softened onions... now THAT's a *tasty* burger!

hmmm, maybe I'll fix one now...

The only way I like salmon is raw with some rice, wasabi and soy sauce.

i like salmon in just about every form.

windy -- thaw it

you can do anything you want to it, but use it right away.

salmon almost cooks itself. you can just salt n pepper it and stick it in the oven or in a skillet, or do all kinds of nifty marinades

I already told you motherfuckers. Mustard. Salmon. That easy.
