simple salmon sauce

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.

ingredients:

equal parts (2tbsp)

  • ketchup
  • dijon mustard (whatever brand you like) 
  • soy or tamari
  • vermouth

a splash

  • olive oil, canola oil or melted butter
  • worchestershire sauce 
  • sriracha or hot sauce

also add

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • half a small shallot, minced
  • a dash sallt and pepper

steps: 

  1. mix everything together in a bowl. i use a whisk or a fork. 
  2. score salmon and put in a foil packet
  3. brush a hefty amount of sauce on but save a bit for on top
  4. 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.
