Here’s a new twist on cooking salmon.  Instead of simple grilling or frying, we’ve added some parmesan cheese to the mix for a little sharpened flavor.  The fish was marinated in a lemonade mixture with garlic and Italian seasoning to give it more internal flavor.  The hash brown that are served along as a side also have the extra up-taste of the same parmesan.  There were a few problems getting the cheese to stick to the fish and not the grill so make sure your grill is on the hot side and don’t turn to soon.

Fresh oranges in the relish pair to make a savory accompaniment to rich salmon fillets. Serve the citrus relish with any kind of fish, or with shrimp or scallops.  The oranges were picked fresh from my tree yesterday and after peeling half the basket I’d seen enough orange peel to last a lifetime.  Then it came to mind, lets just peel a couple more choice oranges and make my Citrus Baked Salmon with Orange Relish.  My only mistake with this thought that the recipe is for four servings and there were only two servings of salmon to prepare.  After putting all of the spice rubRead More →
