Easy Skillet Salmon with Avocado and Basil

Our salmon cooking has evolved through many processes including BBQing, baking & even air frying. We are now back to pan frying again to get maximum moisture retainment & texture. We have gone from using fancy stainless pans, to Teflon, then Hexclad. Now we are back to using our tried, trusted & true cast iron frying pan. It was prefect for this recipe

Ingredients

Salmon Filet: Choose a boneless filet with the skin removed. The filet should be glossy, and it should never smell “fishy.” I also recommend looking at the Seafood Watch app or website to see if there are sustainable options in your area.
Coconut Oil: I used coconut oil today, but avocado oil or organic grapeseed oil would work great too.
Avocado
Basil
Seasonings: We use crushed red pepper, ground black pepper, salt, and Italian seasonings.

Directions

Step 1: Cook Salmon

Heat your oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salt, Italian seasonings, crushed red pepper and black pepper all over the salmon. Lay the salmon filet skinned side up in the hot oil and let it cook undisturbed. The fish is done when it’s browned and crispy along the bottom edge, and the flesh is opaque about half way up the side of the filet. This should take about 4 to 6 minutes, depending on thickness.
Then, flip the salmon over and remove the skillet from heat. Allow the salmon to remain in the hot skillet to allow the carry-over heat to continue cooking the other side to desired doneness. This should take about 4 minutes more.

Step 2: Make Avocado Basil Mixture
While your salmon is cooking in the skillet, peel, pit, and mash the avocado with the basil, lime juice and the remaining salt.

Step 3: Serve and Enjoy

Serve your salmon topped with avocado mash and sprinkled with scallions if desired. Enjoy!

Roasted Halibut With Lemons, Olives and Rosemary

Fish can be excellent dinner-party fare, even for the distracted cook. Step away for a moment to sip your cocktail and your fillets might go from pearly to parched. This dish, though, inspired by one from Southern Italy, elegantly feeds a crowd.

The fish, halibut, is seasoned with chili, salt and olive oil, then topped with rosemary, lemon and olives and roasted. It’s a lighter main dish that won’t leave anyone hungry.

Ingredients
Yield:2 servings

  • 2 (8-ounce) halibut fillets, preferably at least 1-inch thick
  • 1½ teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, more to taste
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground chile pepper, preferably Turkish or Aleppo
  • 2 rosemary branches
  • 1 small lemon, very thinly sliced
  • ¼cup sliced, pitted calamata or other good-quality black olives

Directions

  • Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Place fish in a baking dish
  • Brush fillets with 1 teaspoon of oil and season with salt and chile pepper.
  • Top each fillet with a rosemary branch and several slices of lemon.
  • Drizzle remaining oil over lemon slices and sprinkle with additional salt.
  • Scatter olives over fish and pan.
  • Bake until just opaque, about 10 minutes.
  • If lemon slices have not browned or singed (this will depend on how thinly you slice them), place pan under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Serve drizzled with more olive oil; sprinkle with more salt and chili, if desired.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Lemon Butter

Take advantage of your salmon’s fresh caught flavour with this simple, elegant Pan Seared Salmon recipe in a lemon browned butter sauce. Searing the salmon forms an irresistible exterior that seals in the salmon’s moisture resulting in a flaky, juicy salmon fillet. If you appreciate the simplicity and speed of cooking skillet dinners like Pan-Seared Steak, or Shrimp Scampi then you’ll love this salmon recipe.

Ingredients for Pan Seared Salmon

You can use 1 to 1 1/2 lbs of salmon for this recipe; whatever the size of your pan allows. Ours was a 10″ skillet and we used 1 1/4 lbs, but there is enough sauce for a slightly larger fillet. Literally, all you need is:

  • Salmon
  • Lemons
  • Butter
  • Parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Have ingredients prepped:

  • This recipe moves fast and salmon takes just minutes on the stove, so have your ingredients ready before you turn on the stove.
  • When zesting lemons, make sure you are only getting the yellow portion of the skin and avoid the white pith underneath which can add bitter tones to your recipe.
  • Check for doneness – Since salmon can vary in size, thickness, and even fat content, it’s best to use an instant-read thermometer and cook to an internal temperature of 145˚F.
  • Remove from pan right away so it doesn’t continue to cook over residual heat from the skillet.

Tips for Making Brown Butter:

  • Use a light-colored pan (such as stainless steel or white enamel coated) so you can watch the color changing.
  • DO NOT add butter to a very hot empty pan or it will be likely splatter. Add the butter as the pan is heating up.
  • Stir and swirl often, otherwise, the milk solids and water can pool under the butter and erupt/ splatter as the pressure builds up.
  • Watch the color – browned butter is ready when it turns light brown in color and the solid bits turn a darker brown
  • Set a timer – browning butter takes 3-7 minutes depending on your stove and pan.
  • Do not walk away from your browned butter. Keep a close eye on it as it can quickly burn once it is ready.

Sportsman’s Club “Classic” Salmon Recipe

This old time favourite recipe seems to have evolved over the years. Every time we make it it’s a bit different.  Don’t be too concerned with exact measurements.  Even adding or substituting ingredients to suit your taste or to adapt to what is available in your fridge & pantry is fine. The most important thing is to take the salmon off the heat when it is half done as it continues to cook as it “rests” in the brief period between the heat source & the plate.

COMBINE IN A LARGE BOWL:

  •  ¼ cup oil
  •  ¼ cup soya sauce
  •  1 teaspoon sesame oil
  •  Juice of 1 lemon
  •  ½ cup of orange juice or pineapple juice (or a combination)
  •  1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh ginger
  •  3 cloves garlic finely minced
  •  2 tablespoons brown sugar

THEN …

  • Stir ingredients & then separate 1/3 of mixture into saucepan as set aside for a serving sauce.
  •  Cut filet of salmon (approx. 3-4 lbs.) into 2-3 inch pieces.
  • Marinate salmon chunks in remaining liquid for at least 20 minutes & up to two hours stirring occasionally. Not too long or the fish will “cook” in the citrus.

COOKING:
BBQ – Skin side down on maximum heat (500F+) for minutes 2 minutes per inch or until salmon is cooked half way through (still red in the middle). Turn the salmon & cook for another 2 minutes to burn fat off the flesh side & to give it those lovely BBQ marks & re-apply any remaining marinade from the sauce the fish was in. Cover & let stand for 5 minutes to finish cooking as it cools.
Pan Fry – Fry covered on very hot skillet.  Use a combination of butter & oil to lubricate the pan.
Grill – Skin side down on high so seal then turn to finish.

THE SAUCE:
Reduce remaining marinade that was original set-aside (not any the fish was in) in saucepan on medium heat until it comes to a boil & simmering for 5 minutes or so.  If desired, add two more tablespoons of brown sugar to thicken the reduction. Other suggestions are adding two tablespoons of butter &/or a ¼ cup of white wine.  Serve hot as a topping on the cooked salmon moments before serving with a slice of fresh lemon. Enjoy & be careful not to overcook the delicate salmon flesh. You can always put it back on the heat source to cook more if it is underdone but you can’t un-cook salmon jerky!

Creamy Salmon Fettuccini and Spring Vegetables

This recipe takes the classic combination of salmon & asparagus, & transforms it into a fresh, vibrant pasta dish.

Use any fresh, leftover or even canned salmon. When combined with lemon zest & spring vegetables, this meal defines the light & bright flavours of Springtime.

A light, vinaigrette-dressed salad would pair wonderfully with this meal, as would a cold glass of Pinot Grigio.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 1 (5.2-oz.) pkg. soft Gournay cheese product with garlic and fine herbs (such as Boursin)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (1-lb.) skin-on salmon fillet
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups thinly sliced leek (from 1 leek)
  • 1 pound fresh thin asparagus, trimmed and sliced diagonally into 2-inch pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
  • 1 cup frozen petite green peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish

Directions

  • Cook fettuccine in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions for al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid. Whisk together cheese and ½ cup of the liquid until smooth; set aside.
  • Heat oil in a 12- to 14-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high. Pat salmon dry; season flesh side with pepper and ½ teaspoon of the salt. Add fish, flesh side down, to skillet. Cook, undisturbed, until a deep golden brown crust forms, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn fish over; cook to desired degree of doneness, 1 to 2 minutes for medium.
  • Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels; cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  • Wipe skillet clean.
  • Melt butter in skillet over medium. Add leek. Cook, stirring often, until wilted, 2 minutes.
  • Add asparagus and remaining ¾ teaspoon salt.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 2 minutes. (Reduce heat to medium-low, if needed, to prevent browning.)
  • Stir in cheese mixture, zest, peas, and cooked pasta.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, 2 minutes, stirring in cooking liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed, for creaminess.
  • Remove from heat; stir in dill.
  • Remove skin from salmon; flake into large pieces.
  • Top pasta servings with salmon, and sprinkle with additional dill.

ENJOY!

5-Minute Blackened Air Fryer Salmon Bites

These 5-minute Blackened Air Fryer Salmon Bites are the Bomb! Easy to prepare, great on top of a salad, served with rice or your favorite grain, or in a bowl with veggies & sauce.
If you don’t have an air fryer yet buy one ASAP as they are AMAZING. Or just cook these on a baking sheet in the oven.

To air fry salmon for quick meals and bowls, I love to cut them into smaller bites and season them with blackening spices or even cajun seasoning if you want to make them even simpler!

Blackened Air Fryer Salmon Ingredients

  • Salmon: Fresh or frozen salmon will work in the air fryer. Just make sure to thaw it first if frozen.
  • Olive oil spray for spraying the basket and salmon
  • Blackened Seasoning: Sweet paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, dried thyme and oregano, salt, black pepper

Method

  • Prep Salmon: To air fryer salmon, put the salmon cubes in a large bowl and spritz with olive oil spray. Combine all the spices and rub the mixture over the salmon.
  • Air Fry: Temp and time can vary when making salmon in the air fryer when you look at other recipes, but I like to cook it at 400°F for maximum 5 minutes, depending on the thickness, for the best results. Shake the basket halfway through and air fry until the salmon is fully cooked and browned.

Helpful Tips

  • If the salmon is frozen, it’s best to let it thaw before air frying. You can do this a couple of ways: Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator, or place the fish, sealed in a bag, in a bowl filled with cold water and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  • If it’s still frozen, dump the water and refill the bowl with fresh, cold water to ensure the fish doesn’t come to room temperature.
  • Always shake the basket halfway so the fish browns on all sides and cooks evenly.
  • The leftover salmon bites can be refrigerated for three days. To reheat salmon in the air fryer, heat it for about three minutes at 350°F, shaking halfway.

What to Serve with Salmon Bites

  • As a Main: I serve these blackened salmon bites with lemon wedges and parsley over brown rice. Make a quick side salad or roasted veggies if you want something green.
  • Salmon Bites Bowl: Add more veggies, like cucumber, avocado, and tomatoes, to the rice and top it with a sauce like key lime tartar or horseradish sauce.
  • Salad: Top any salad with these crispy salmon bites and drizzle with your favorite dressing.
  • Tacos: Wrap the fish in corn tortillas and top with cabbage slaw and a creamy yogurt sauce.

Baked Cod with Lemon & Garlic

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb Cod fillet pieces, 4-6 pieces
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

Lemon Sauce

  • 5 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced

For Coating

  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¾ teaspoon sweet Spanish paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, and melted butter in a shallow bowl (do not add the garlic yet). Set aside.
  • In another shallow bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, spices, salt and pepper. Set next to the lemon sauce.
  • Pat the fish dry. Dip the fish in the lemon sauce then dip it in the flour mixture. Shake off excess flour. Reserve the lemon sauce for later.
  • Heat 2 tablespoon olive oil in a cast iron skillet (or an oven-safe pan) over medium-high heat (watch the oil to be sure it is shimmering but not smoking).
  • Add the fish and sear on each side to give it some color, but do not fully cook (about 2 minutes on each side). Remove the skillet from heat.
  • To the remaining lemon sauce, add the minced garlic and mix. Drizzle all over the fish fillets.
  • Bake in the heated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork (10 minutes should do it, but begin checking earlier).
  • Remove from the heat and sprinkle chopped parsley. Serve immediately.

Simon’s Smoked Salmon Crackers

As many of our guests know, I do a demonstration during your stay at the Lodge on the finer points of serving salmon on a cracker. This is to promote you sending some of the 8 salmon you are pretty much guaranteed to catch while you stay with us to St. Jean’s Cannery for processing into cans, smoked canned, lox or Indian candy. Even if you are the “Uber Barbequer”, chances are you are going to catch so many fish during your stay with us that if you don’t do anything other than fillet & freeze your catch you are going to end up with a bunch rotting in your freezer. When I serve these yummy cold canopies I get lots of feedback that it is often the best salmon that people have ever tasted. It is a classic & timeless presentation …

INGREDIENTS:

  •  200 Grams canned salmon/smoked canned salmon/hot smoked/lox/indian candy/left over BBQ’d (pretty much any salmon)
  •  Cream Cheese
  •  1 box of crackers (sturdy enough to support the application of the cream cheese & salmon & the moisture of the squeeze of lemon)
  •  Capers
  •  Green/Purple/Walla Walla Sweet Onions (finely chopped)
  •  Lemon (cut in wedges)
  •  Fresh pepper (to taste)


DIRECTIONS:

  •  Smear cream cheese on a platter of crackers (let’s say a dozen)
  •  Press desired amount of capers & onion into the cream cheese so that they don’t fall off the cracker
  •  Add a teaspoon of salmon
  •  Squeeze of lemon (to taste)
  •  Grind of pepper (to taste)
  •  Repeat, Enjoy

The Pacific Northwest tradition of cooking fish on cedar plank originated thousands of years ago with the First Nations people. Plank grilling involves cooking food atop a plank of wood (most commonly cedar but sometimes alder) over flames, coals or on a BBQ. The smoldering of the plank as it partially ignites imparts a subtle smoky flavor to the fish by gently cooking with indirect heat & smoke. This slows the cooking process prevents foods from drying out & keeps the grill perfectly clean. You can buy cedar planks at most grocery stores, fish shops or online.

Ingredients

  • 3 (12 inch) untreated cedar planks
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 (2 pound) salmon fillets, skin removed
Directions
  1. Soak the cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if you have time.
  2. In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to one hour.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
  4. Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.

Ingredients

Halibut:

  • 4 6-oz Halibut fillets (1.5 lb total)
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil

Lemon butter sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Salted butter
  • 1 medium Lemon (cut in half)

Instructions

  • Tap on the times in the instructions below to start a kitchen timer while you cook.
  • Use paper towels to pat the halibut fillets completely dry – this will ensure even browning.
  • Season the fish on both sides with garlic powder, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes.
  • Add the fish fillets in a single layer (you can do it in batches if all the fish won’t fit in a single layer).
  • Sear, without moving, for 3-4 minutes, until the edges of the fish are opaque. Flip and cook for 2-4 minutes, until cooked through.
  • Remove the fish from the pan and cover tightly with foil to keep warm.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the butter to the same pan. Wait for it to melt, then heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the butter is browned and smells nutty. TIP: If you like garlic, you can also use this lemon butter sauce recipe.
  • Squeeze all the juice from both halves of the lemon into the pan.
  • Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat and simmer for about 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until volume is reduced by half. The lemon butter sauce will still be thin.
  • Drizzle a little lemon butter sauce over each serving plate. Place the pan seared halibut fillets over the sauce, then drizzle more sauce on top.
