I kept the salmon prep simple, as well. Rather than heat the house up since it is miserably hot and muggy here, I decided to cook it tightly wrapped in foil on the grill. I placed a large fillet in the center of a large piece of foil and topped it with slices of lemon, fresh dill and pieces of Kerrygold's Garlic & Herb Butter and then lightly seasoned with sea salt and black pepper. I crimped the foil to make a large packet and then cooked it at about 425 degrees for about 15 minutes on our gas grill (closed). I basically used the grill as on outdoor oven. That way, no heat or smell in the kitchen whatsoever. It turned out delicious.
This week (the day after I got home from Cordova, Alaska) I actually ordered some Copper River Salmon, wild Halibut and wild Black Cod from a fisherman that I met while there. I had been asking around to see if any of them actually sold their catch to the public and was directed to Rich Wheeler of SenaSea Seafoods. I placed my order as soon as I returned and now have a nice stash of Copper River Salmon, Halibut and Black Cod in my freezer. They overnight ship for free and mine arrived 23-1/2 hours after I placed my order. It arrived nicely packaged and completely frozen solid (packed in dry ice) and each piece if vacuum sealed for freshness. I can't wait to try it and am excited that I can now continue to enjoy my favorite Copper River Salmon beyond it's short season (yum)! I snapped a few photos of tonight's dinner below (it was so easy to prepare, it doesn't really require a recipe or any special measuring...just go with the flow). Enjoy!
And I will definitely have to look for that burrata, too! :-)
Thanks! Hope you find the burrata...it was really good! :-)
I ditto CyberSis's comment! The photo makes my mouth water.
I'm going to check into the SenaSea Seafoods link you provided.
Also going to look for the burrata also.
Hope you find the burrata. Oh, and P.S. - after I ordered my salmon, halibut and black cod, SenaSea Seafoods sent me a "coupon code" for 10% off orders that I could give to my followers (LOL...I'm hoping to use it myself next time I order). If you decide to order from them, my code is GOURMETGIRL10 (and this is not a plug or pitch...I don't get anything for this)! :-)
Thank you for the coupon code! More incentive to place my order. :-)
You are welcome Peg! :-)
