Salmon

Salmon is known as an oily fish but high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D. Whether you bake, smoke, fry, grill, or eat your Salmon Raw you will find our Salmon Recipes Delicious. I love a plain baked salmon, no seasoning required for this delicious fish. Sometimes I may squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top for some citrus but not always. Smoked Salmon is great with cream cheese and chives on top of a bagel or crackers. I tried salmon in the can once, it just didn’t work for me! Salmon is one of my favorite fish!

The Cheesecake Factory’s Miso Salmon

FacebookPinterestStumbleUponGoogle+TumblrRedditShare

One of my favorite dishes at The Cheesecake Factory is the Miso Salmon. It is light, the fish is perfectly cooked, and you think you are eating something healthy from The Cheesecake Factory…think again! Nothing from that restaurant is very healthy but everything is delicious and really, isn’t that all that matters?

Every time we are visiting home The Cheesecake Factory is a must on our restaurant list. I always try to order something different on their huge menu or get my usual (cobb salad with blue cheese) and something else to take home. Well, this one time I tried the Miso Salmon. Yum! The salmon just falls apart at the touch of your fork and melts in your mouth. The miso glaze is sweet and yet perfectly balanced with umami that you just want that glaze and a spoon. The salmon sits on top a bed of jasmine rice and garnished with a few snow peas. A great dinner with a few more veggies or a light lunch that is easy to pack up for work and heat at the office. This easy recipe really duplicates the meal spot on, you will absolutely love it!

I used a ginger and garlic paste but if you use minced or chopped, just run the glaze through a food processor or blender once finished. Also, look for miso, soybean paste, in your grocer Asian aisle or at an Asian grocery store. I used 4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each and 1 inch thick.

Herb & Lemon Salmon

 One of my many diets included in my yo-yo dieting (another story, another blog) was a baked salmon diet. Everyday I would eat baked salmon. By itself, on bread, with rice, in salad, atop pasta. I never once got tired of it. I would literally just bake a salmon fillet and that would be that. Rarely would I add any spices or sauce to the salmon, I love the taste of salmon on its own. However, my DH hated it. Baked salmon is so boring to him, even if it is marinated or covered in the best possible herbs and sauces. Well, it has been awhile since my baked salmon diet but I decided to give it another try and use some lemons since they were in town.

Delicious Rating: Delicious! Baked salmon is an easy dinner recipe that can go with grains, veggies, or whatever you please. The basil in this recipe combines so well with the lemon and parsley, total yum factor. What did my DH think you ask? Well, he said it was good…and then said, “I just don’t like baked salmon.” Okay, I guess it isn’t for everybody. What about you?

Smoked Salmon Spread

I love relaxing with a glass of wine and some cheese & crackers. It is a great way to end an evening at home. Cheese & crackers are excellent for a snack, a light meal, and even to serve for an appetizer. This is a super easy recipe for those occasions.

Smoked salmon is so smooth to your palate. I love the flavor & texture. So this spread is one of my favorite with crackers. It is light and perfect for any occasion. I have to be careful because I tend to overeat it!

Delicious Rating: Again, simple. Super Delicious. I will make it again for sure!
