simple salmon sauce
growing up in oregon i ate a lot of salmon. like a lot a lot. i love it. one of the reasons i love it is that my mom (who is a dietician and great cook) had a secret sauce she always made with it. it was fabulous. and so simple. my friends deshka and her husband preston just got back from a trip to visit family in alaska and gifted us some fresh salmon they caught. it was a great excuse to make this sauce! i've tweaked it slightly for some kick but it is classic and yummy.
equal parts (2tbsp)
- dijon mustard (whatever brand you like)
- soy or tamari
- olive oil, canola oil or melted butter
- worchestershire sauce
- sriracha or hot sauce
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- half a small shallot, minced
- a dash sallt and pepper
- mix everything together in a bowl. i use a whisk or a fork.
- score salmon and put in a foil packet
- brush a hefty amount of sauce on but save a bit for on top
- close foil packet and cook salmon however you want (grill/oven/steam)
i served the salmon with roasted root veggies (sweet potato, rutabega, turnip), watermelon arugula and feta salad and some bread. it was an a+ sunday meal.
