Thought I might try a little native twist to the wild sockeye salmon tonight …
This is completely new and untried (by me)!
Drizzled a little olive oil over all three pieces of salmon … ’cause olive oil is sooo good with almost everything! This part is not native but … creative license … a lot of this recipe is not … 🙂
Then drizzled a little REAL CANADIAN maple syrup over all. A splash of Tamari Sauce (wheat-free) and a heaping tablespoon or more of minced, fresh ginger. At this point I couldn’t decided whether to add anything else … garlic, dijon mustard, spices, herbs … so decided on nothing else … just fresh blueberries. Probably about 1 cup of fresh, delicious blueberries were poured on top. Popped the pan into the oven at 375° for about 20 minutes and immediately tasted, almost burning my mouth! Blueberries and salmon definitely go together well but I think it needs a little something extra. Definitely a little too much ginger – a little less or none at all next time … Perhaps mustard? Horseradish? More maple syrup? Will definitely keep refining this recipe and keep you up to date!
