Fish Pie

Fish Pie

This is not hard recipe to do, but pretty nice one. My mom used to cook it all the time when we were kids: it can be served right away while it is still warm, or later warmed up or cold.

You can use any fish for this recipe (excluding the one with tons of bones), but red and fatty kind will work the best here. I used salmon.

Recipe for portion of unsweetened yeast dough I used can be found here.

Bay leaves here are optional, I like to use them, but they need to be removed before eating, so if you don’t want to do that, just skip them altogether.

Salmon in Mustard, Lemon Juice and Soy Sauce Marinade

This is very easy way to cook salmon, you just need to put marinade together, pour it over salmon and then cook salmon together with marinade.

I used portion salmon fillets for this recipe (6oz each), but salmon steaks or a whole salmon fish will work here as well. For cooking whole fish increase marinating time for couple of hours or even do it overnight, and bake it instead of frying.

Fresh vegetables or boiled potato are good side dishes for salmon cooked this way.

Salmon and Potato Chowder with Cream

There is no better food for crispy fall weather than a cup of thick freshly cooked hot chowder.

This chowder is prepared using salmon and potato as main ingredients and cream and potato starch for thickening. Lemon is optional and can be omitted.

You can regulate thickness to your taste by adding more or less of the starch.

Fried Battered Salmon

Fried Battered Salmon

Salmon fried this way turns out juicy. All you need is salmon, eggs and flour to make batter. Amount of flour may vary – just add flour until batter gets desired thickness.

Fried battered salmon is a good choice for lunch or dinner; tastes good with potato as a side dish: fried or boiled.

Serve fried salmon as soon as it is cooked – it tastes better straight from the frying pan.

Salmon Roast in Foil

Salmon Roast in Foil

For me the best tasting salmon – is boiled salmon, and with this recipe I get taste of boiled salmon without actually boiling it. The same as boiled salmon this one tastes great garnished with mayo; a glass of white wine is good accompaniment as well.

This salmon roast can be cooked on the grill as well, just pack each fish piece into separate piece of foil and then cook without pan until ready.

Onions here are optional, they give a bit of taste to the dish but they also make sure that fish doesn’t touch the foil.

Salmon under Capers and Dill Sauce

Salmon under Capers and Dill Sauce

Capers and dill, butter, wine and shallots – those are ingredients of very good sauce for fish. Personally I pick salmon, because it is especially good when boiled or even simmered like in this recipe. However I think it will work with other kind of fish without any problem.

Should I also remind you what fish is an important part of the healthy diet?

Got a romantic dinner coming up and want to surprise your date with something special? I recommend this tender salmon dish, especially if after preparing of it you still have a few sips of Chardonnay left to accompany it with.

Fast Salted Salmon

Fast Salted Salmon

Even though it is called fast salted it still requires at least 12 hours to be ready for eating. So it is good idea to start preparing Fast Salted Salmon an evening before you are planning to put it on the table.

Due to the big amount of oil it is good to be served with simple boiled potatoes and bread.
