Salmon is one of our favorite meals. It is an easy weeknight main course to feed the family. Throw it on the grill with a little olive oil and lemon, grill a veggie alongside, add some rice and you have a tasty, healthy and filling meal.
When company is coming I always feel like I have to up my game a bit. Put a little more effort into the meal. You know, be a little impressive maybe? Since first serving this at our Chinese New Year Gr8 Dinner, this has become my go-to salmon recipe for company. Everybody loves it, even those who aren’t wild about salmon say it is delicious!
One of our favorite websites here at Great Eight Friends is Food52, with recipes, restaurant reviews, shopping and more it is a great resource. This recipe has been adapted from Food52. I have changed some of the proportions to satisfy my family’s tastes, so feel free to add a little more of this or less of that.
The best part about this recipe (in addition to it always being a hit!) is that the glaze is made ahead of time and the fish roasts slowly in the oven while you linger over cocktails with your guests.
If you have never slow roasted salmon, you are in for a treat!
Recipe adapted from Food52.
Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice and rest of the ginger. (If your family isn't wild about a strong ginger flavor, then don't add this last 1/3 of ginger.)
Let the fish marinate with the glaze for 5 minutes then brush another Tablespoon of the glaze on top and let sit for 5 minutes.
Put pan in oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Brush another Tablespoon of the glaze on top of the salmon and roast another 10 minutes.
Serve garnished with the minced scallion, if desired.
