4 medium-size 1 inch-thick salmon steaks

Grilled Salmon with Tarragon Butter In reply to
4 servings
I make this for hubby at least once a week and he just loves it. I just one serving, except when the kids are over for dinner then I make the 4 servings. I use my George Foreman's Grill and have made it on the bbq. I serve it with an herbed buttered risotto and a sliced tomato salad. I, on the other handm don't care for any kind of fish, except for shrimp, snow crab legs and lobster.
1/2 cup Land O Lakes sweet butter, softened
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves, chopped,
or 1 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon lemon juice
4 (1-inch) thick salmon steaks
Prepare grill placing coals to one side, heat until coals are ash white. Make aluminum foil drip pan; place opposite coals.
In small bowl stir together butter, tarragon and lemon juice.
Spread 1 to 2 teaspoons butter mixture on both sides of each salmon steak.
Place salmon on grill and grill, turning once, until salmon flakes with fork (10 to 12 minutes). Serve salmon with remaining butter mixture.
NOTE: You can add 2 to 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped chives or to your taste. I add a lot more because of the taste the chives add to the salmon, and hubby likes it that way.
Helpful Hint: Substitute either of the following butters for the tarragon butter.
Lemon-Chive Butter
Stir together 1/2 cup Land O Lakes Butter, softened, 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel and 4 to 6 drops hot pepper sauce.
Garlic-Parsley Butter
Stir together 1/2 cup Land O Lakes Butter, softened, 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt.
I have used the lemon chive and garlic parsley butters and hubby says they all taste delicious

Skewered Salmon In reply to
About 1 1/4 pound salmon steak
1/4 cup olive oil
Fresh juice of 1/2 lemon
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Place four 8-inch wooden skewers in a shallow plate with water and let them soak 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the salmon steaks into 1 1/2-inch cubes (remove skin and bone). Place in a bowl. Add olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Toss to coat (you may cover and chill the salmon at this point several hours or overnight).
Heat a charcoal or gas grill or broiler. Thread the salmon onto the damp skewers, covering exposed ends with aluminum foil if desired (the fish doesn't cook long enough to set the wood on fire, but the skewers will char). If the fish pieces are oblong, skewer through the shortest sides so the skewer goes through the piece lengthwise. Push the pieces together so they are touching. Cook the skewered fish about 6 inches from the heat for about 5 minutes or until it is cooked through (no need to turn the skewer). It should still be silky in the middle and not exactly flaky.
Serves 4.
Serve with rice and snow peas or other green vegetable.

TRAILERPARK SALMON In reply to
by lonehunter

How do you do it? Take one small salmon—or a piece of salmon (under 10 lbs. works best), wrap it well with aluminum foil (use at least 2 sheets), find a suitable rack in your dishwasher, insert, close door, and start. Though detergent isn't necessary, there is no reason you can't wash your dishes and cook the salmon at the same time. Just be sure the salmon is tightly wrapped.

What happens? Depending on the model of your dishwasher and the parts of its cycles, the salmon is boiled, steamed, and baked.

The results? One moist and tender salmon ready for eating. Simply remove from dishwasher and, opening foil carefully, place on platter. There will be no cooking odors at all.

Note: Much depends on the strength of your dishwasher and what cycle(s) you use, as well as the size of fish you insert. A certain amount of experimenting is probably necessary. If one full cycle is not enough, simply run it through again, or part(s) of a cycle. Also, cheesecloth can be used instead of foil, and vegetables can be cooked separately at the same time.

And of course, you can use all your favorite touches: enclosing fish with various herbs, such as dill or thyme, thin-sliced vegetables, lemon slices, special sauces, etc. Salmon cooked in foil with fresh apricots, or oranges and grapes, is excellent. The true secret, as with all foil cookery, is to make sure that the fish is wrapped tightly enough that it does not leak! And, of course it takes a certain faith—like the first time you baked a goose in a brown paper bag.
