Karl’s Honey Lemon and Tarragon Broiled Salmon

I have dozens of pictures on my desktop of dishes I have created and never gotten around to posting. This was a weekday meal and I had decided on broiled salmon, but how to make it special? That day, I chose to make a glaze of honey, lemon and tarragon, just to try something new.

Karl’s Broiled Salmon with Ginger White Peach Glaze

Daughter Eilene has gone off to an archeological dig on Nevis, so it is just Jan and me for dinner for the next month. It is a weekday meal and I wanted something simple and quick. A while ago, I broiled some salmon using my lemon marmalade as a glaze. Recently, I made some white peach jam. I wondered how would this jam work as a glaze for salmon?

Karl’s Miso Teriyaki Barbecued Salmon

I was craving Japanese food this week, so I decided that that would be the theme for my Sunday dinner. In particular, I wanted barbecued teriyaki salmon. Today, I wondered what would happen if I mixed miso into my teriyaki sauce.

Karl’s Open-Faced Salmon Salad Sandwiches

I broiled some salmon for dinner the other night and I had some leftover salmon. While my wife loves tuna sandwiches, she cannot—for some reason—tolerate salmon salad. Since I was having lunch on my own, I decided to make this treat for a quick and easy lunch.

Karl’s Cedar Plank Salmon with Two Dry Rubs

When I proposed my usual Greek lamb for this Easter’s dinner, I was faced with a bit of a revolt. We finally settled on both ham and salmon as the main dishes. For the salmon I eventually decided to use two spice rubs. To go with my salmon I also made a ham steak, arugula salad, latkes with pear sauce, and dinner rolls.

Karl’s Smoked Salmon and Avocado Toast

About once a week we have what we call “deli dinner”—smoked salmon or lox, bread, cheeses, and salads. We usually get most of the ingredients for this meal from La Villa Italian Deli. However, since it is a family run business, they close for the entire Thanksgivings Day weekend.

We made do by getting our ingredients from Whole Food‘s this week. We had some hot smoked salmon leftover and I decided to use it for lunch the next day. How do you feed three people with only one ounce of fish? I decided to mix it with an avocado and some chives that I had remaining from making Thanksgiving dinner. Avocado toast makes a great lunch when paired with a green salad. Continue reading

Karl’s Orange Dinner

In the continued effort to make meals for Jan that she doesn’t have to do any biting—she has two front tooth temporary caps—I suggested salmon for dinner. She thought yams were a good soft starch to go with the fish. She then suggested that this was an Orange Dinner.

Karl’s Broiled Salmon with Lemon Marmalade and Dill

It is a weekday meal and I wanted something simple and quick. I decided on broiled salmon, but how to make it special? I make a lot of marmalades—most of which I give away—but I usually have a few flavors in my kitchen. Today, I chose the lemon and dill goes nicely with lemon.

Karl’s Fresh Salmon Patties

Jan and I are on our own this weekend as Eilene has gone to a CON in L.A. I did not feel like left over chili, but I am unused to cooking for only two. Jan has been complaining about red meat and starch heavy meals, so I finally settled on salad and salmon patties.

Many recipes for salmon patties call for using canned salmon—including my mother’s. For this meal, I decided I wanted to use fresh fish and my new favorite ingredient Japanese mayonnaise. Glancing at a few other recipes, I settled on my ingredients list and off I went.
