Fish recipes don’t get much simpler than this. You can use this technique with any fish fillet, and remember that the skin gives added flavor.

Ingredients :

  • 1 Tbs (15 ml) sesame oil
  • 4-6 salmon fillets, about 6 oz (170 g) each
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) prepared teriyaki sauce
  • 2-3 tsp (10-15 ml) sesame seeds
  • Lemon wedges for garnish

Steps :

  • Heat the sesame oil in a large, heavy skillet (preferably non-stick) until it begins to smoke.
  • Place the salmon fillets in the oil skin side down and remove from the heat immediately.
  • Spoon or brush the teriyaki sauce over the fillets, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and place the skillet in a preheated 350F (180C) oven.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the salmon is firm to the touch.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with lemon wedges.
  • Serves 4 to 6.

Salmon in Orange Sauce

My source for this recipe, an Australian cookbook, calls for “lemonade fruits,” a cross between a lime and a tangelo which is unheard of in other parts of the world. I have substituted lime and grapefruit wedges for the garnish.

Ingredients :

  • 4-6 salmon fillets, about 6 oz (170 g) each
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbs (30 ml) lemon juice.

For the sauce:

  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) orange juice
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 scallion, white part only, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs (30 ml) lemon juice
  • Add 1 Tbs (15 ml) honey
  • Add 1 Tbs (15 ml) green peppercorns (optional)
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) sesame oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

For the garnish:

  • Add 1 orange, peeled
  • give 1 lime, peeled
  • and 1 grapefruit, peeled

Steps :

  • Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place skin side down in a lightly greased baking dish.
  • Drizzle with the lemon juice and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in a preheated 400F (200C) oven until firm, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile boil the orange juice, ginger, and scallion in a small saucepan over moderate heat until it is reduced to about 1/4 cup (60 ml).
  • Whisk in the remaining sauce ingredients.
  • Cut sections from the orange, lime, and grapefruit, separating the flesh from the membranes.
  • Spoon the sauce over the salmon fillets and garnish with the citrus sections.
  • Serves 4 to 6.

Salmon in Tomato Cream Sauce

To be perfectly honest, you can serve this sauce with any fish, or if you want to stick to salmon (one of my favorites), you can cook it any way you want because this dish is all about the sauce. In fact, you don’t even need to put it on fish because it’s also great on chicken breasts, pork chops, and patties and cutlets of all kinds, It’s also great all by itself as a topping for pasta.

Ingredients :

  • 1-2 cans (15 oz, 425g each) chopped tomatoes with liquid
  • 1 cup (250 ml) heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 1 Tbs (15 ml) anchovy paste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Hot sauce to taste (optional)
  • 4-6 salmon fillets, grilled, broiled, sauteed, or poached

Steps :

  • Combine the tomatoes, cream, anchovy paste, salt, pepper, and optional hot sauce in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered until reduced by about a third, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Spoon over cooked salmon.
  • Serves 4 to 6.
