Tandoori-Spiced Salmon w/ Pickled Cucumber

Tandoori-Spiced Salmon

Hands down, this has become my most favorite salmon recipe. I came across it in Saveur Magazine and combined a lot of the steps and played around with the spices a little bit to better match what I had in my spice cabinet and ended up with this winner. This recipe does not use a completely traditional Tandoori spice mix, but I like to think it’s close enough in spirit? (My main spice swap is substituting smoked paprika for chili powder, but I think the smokiness adds an interesting note. If you don’t have smoked . . . → Read More: Tandoori-Spiced Salmon w/ Pickled Cucumber

Oven-Roasted Salmon with Green Romesco Sauce

Salmon with Green Romesco

Romesco, a Spanish pepper and nut-based sauce, is typically made with red bell peppers, producing a bright red and flavorful summery sauce.

A little cheese. I know some people do not like to mix cheese with seafood but — I am not one of those people.

Grilled Salmon with Chard, Bacon, & Udon Noodles

Grilled Salmon with Chard, Bacon, & Udon Noodles

One of my most favorite restaurants on the Oregon Coast is Local Ocean in Newport*. And whenever we go there, even though I know I should order something new, I get the Grilled Halibut with Swiss chard, edamame, bacon, udon noodles, ponzu sauce – because it’s so good that I just can’t bring myself to order anything else.

Recently, I recreated it at home, using salmon instead of halibut and I think it turned out great. The thing with salmon is that you can get a nice . . . → Read More: Grilled Salmon with Chard, Bacon, & Udon Noodles
