Karl’s Dry Fried Salmon

I wanted something quick and easy for a weekday dinner. I have been experimenting with dry frying skin-on salmon fillets. A simple salad and a quick couscous dish completed the meal.

Karl’s Leftovers: Salmon Salad with Raspberry Radish Slaw

This Sunday we had a complex soup, cioppino,  that would take up most of my attention. I did not want to have just a plain greens salad, but it needed to be simple. Fortunately, yesterday was Jan and my 33rd anniversary and I had made salmon wraps for dinner.

Karl’s Salmon Lettuce Wraps with Raspberry Radish Slaw

Jan has been working 70-80 hour weeks lately—if only she would get paid for some of that overtime. It is hardly surprising that she has ended up working on our anniversary. Today is Jan and my 33rd anniversary. We are having the major celebration with cioppino tomorrow with the kids, but there is still tonight’s dinner to make special.

Claudia’s Baked Salmon

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes. I just posted a salmon cake recipe that put me in mind of one of my mother’s recipes: Baked Salmon. Claudia’s recipe cards were remarkable in their brevity and assumed knowledge. I will present the card as written and then give more detailed instructions for making this dish. Continue reading

Karl’s Leftovers: Salmon Cake

When I make my Sunday meals, I usually make enough for one to three leftover meals. Sometimes this means just the same meal again. Other times I use whatever is left over as the basis for a new dish.

Karl’s Mandarin Marmalade Glazed Salmon with Leeks

My son-in-law, Chris, requested fish for his Sunday birthday dinner. I have been making a lot of different kinds of marmalade recently and I have been looking for uses for them—besides just spreading them on toast. I have made salmon with lemon and dill, so I though adding a sweet glaze would be just the thing. To go with my salmon, I served Heart of Palm, Mandarin Orange, and Arugula Salad and Colcannon California.

Karl’s Ponzu Salmon Teriyaki

Several days ago, a friend of Jan’s (Jennifer Anderson) gave her three yuzu to pass on to me. Yuzu’s flavor is describes as a cross between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange. It is the key ingredient in authentic Japanese ponzu sauce. Having turned this bounty into ponzu sauce it seemed clear to me that salmon teriyaki would be a good use for it. Steamed rice and pickled vegetables are the obvious go-together for a weekend Japanese meal.

Karl’s South of the Border Salmon Patties

Jan wanted something light for dinner. I went on-line for ideas and was surprised what some people—especially the diet cooking magazines—considered “light.” In my mind, anything with pasta is not “light” by definition, but easily a third of the recipes were some form of pasta and sauce.

Karl’s Roasted Salmon with Leeks II

Last Tuesday was St. Patrick’s Day and no one in this household likes what is sold as “corned beef” in the supermarkets. In fact, except for Chris, my son-in-law whose family is from Boston, we do not favor “boiled dinners” (everything thrown into the same pot and boiled). For us the classic dish for Irish Day is the Salmon of Knowledge.

Karl’s Barbecued Salmon with Lemon and Dill

I saw this meal as a Northwest Fusion, Northwest (US) cuisine with Asian influences. When I visit my sister, Karen, she usually makes a barbecued salmon. I thought it would go well with my wild rice and mushroom soup.
