MAPLE-CARDAMOM GLAZED SALMON
1 pound wild salmon filet, de-boned
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons ground cardamom
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
pinch cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
1. Preheat oven to 450 dgF. In a small bowl combine maple syrup, cardamom, paprika, cayenne and a bit of freshly ground pepper. Whisk until mixture is smooth. Adjust to taste.
2. Arrange salmon filet on a cutting board. Remove the bones (if your fishmonger hasn't already) and cut into pieces, size as preferred. Brush syrup mixture evenly over the salmon filets. Place a large cast iron skillet into the oven and allow it to heat up for about 5 to 10 minutes while the salmon rests.
3. Place the salmon in the preheated skillet (scale-side down) and cook for about 10 minutes. Brush more glaze onto the salmon and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes until the salmon is cooked to your liking. (Time will vary depending on thickness of fish and preferred pink-ness of interior).
This sounds so good, I eat a lot of salmon and for some reason I've never cooked it with a glaze before. Yours sounds like one I should try, and it's so easy to put together!ReplyDelete
That maple glaze sounds fabulous--spicy and sweet at the same time. :) Yay!ReplyDelete
Looks really good!ReplyDelete
I was just thinking about you the other day when I was starring at a giant piece of tuna. What would you do with that? It's about time for our cooking session again.ReplyDelete
Recently found your blog and can't wait to try this recipe! Anything that incorportates cardamom is a winner in my book.ReplyDelete
