A very simple way for salmon is to just spray some I can't believe its not butter, sprinkle fresh or dried dill and broil, serve with lemon.

This is my favorite Salmon dish. This is a great dish, and you can make it ahead of time. Works excellent at a dinner party, served with steamed asparagus, tomatos with buffalo mozarella and fresh basil drizzled in olive oil.

COLD STEAMED SALMON WITH CUCUMBER DILL SAUCE

2 1/2 lbs of salmon fillets (approx 1/2 lb per person)
1 cup non-fat yogurt
1/2 cup peeled, seeded cucumber grated
2 tbsp dill weed
1 tsp white vinegar
1/2 pack sweetner

There are many ways to steam a fish. You can use your wok as a steamer. Cut the fillets into serving size pieces. Place
them in the already heated steamer. Cook for 12 minutes. Turn off the heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove from the steamer and chill for at least 4 hours.
Yummy tip....add fresh lemon and tsp of dried dill to the water--yum

Take rest of ingredients, mix together and let sit for at least 4 hours...the longer it sits the better.

This is a Phase II reciepe because of the yogurt

Geez, Sflake, you were right when you said you couldn't cook.
I don't have any recipes for you, but I would say the skin should be on the bottom. But what do I know... I can't cook, either.

sflake-I always use the KISS principal when cooking salmon (Keep It Simple Stupid!) We usually just brush a bit of olive oil over the meaty part (not the gray skin-that goes on the bottom) and sprinkle with whatever herb you like. Rosemary is yummy, but even just plain old pepper is good, too! Serve with lemon wedges! Good luck...let us know how it turns out!

Franny--
Oh yum---rosemary and salmon, I have never tried it. I will do that the next time.

ellis, I LOVE to cook. Whenever it is someone's birthday, they call me up and say....we could go out for dinner...or and of course I offer to cook!!!

I do like to cook healthy things and that has been a blessing. My dream someday is to open a bed and breakfast that allows well mannered pet....to live someplace beautiful, get to write off my gardening expenses, cooking expenses and be around dogs and people all day.......that would be my dream....

Regarding the skin....buying it with the skin is usually considered a BBQ salmon, you put it on the skin side first and then turn it, I peel off the skin with a fork and then turn once to burn off the fish yuck that is there., you can cook it longer with the skin and it will not burn when you are grilling it...very handy

You can do the same thing by just sticking the fish, skin side up in the broiler and cooking it until it begins to crisp...you can just pull it off, that is what I recommend, it is not very attractive sitting on the plate, and it will turn some off to see the skin. But some leave the skin on anyhow...enjoy Salmon is full of Omega 3 Fatty Acids and are great for people who are dieting, and for our heart and overall health!!!

Rowan - I want to come stay at your bed & breakfast! Please let me know when that dream comes true for you, and I'll make a trip. I complain to my DH often about the area of the country we live in and the kinds of foods you get when you go out to eat. I don't know of ANY restaurant that specializes in healthy cuisine. I could probably make a bundle if I opened something, but I can't cook for more than 2 or 3 at a time

Rowan, great tip about getting the skin off the salmon! I am one that doesn't like to see it on my plate!

DH and I both really like fish and seafood, but did not grow up eating it. So we have both had to learn how to cook it. He is forever trying new combos...some good...some not so good....

But I have a DH who likes to cook, so I NEVER complain. We enjoy the time we spend together in the kitchen, and he has be extremely supportive of my new WOE.

I think we would probably entertain a lot if I worked a normal schedule. Working nights tends to put a damper on your social life!
