Miso Mustard Roasted Salmon

15 | March 19, 2014

With the winds getting warmer and the trees starting to bloom our taste buds are starting to crave spring and summer flavors. What’s the first thing my family craves? Fresh salmon of course, and for a Texas family of three that’s somewhat odd because I live thousands of miles away from any salmon run. The mainstream salmon season doesn’t start for a few more months so basically I’m left with farmed salmon and I’d rather eat my shoe – it tastes better. kissing the fishmonger I couldn’t ignore the craving any longer and broke down in front of my fishmonger

As the weather gets colder here in Texas, the salmon boats in Alaska are getting ready for their long winter nap until next season. This also means I recently received my last shipment of Copper River Salmon of the year… and yes, I might have just shed a tear. When the Copper River Salmon season began this summer we started with delicious wild caught fresh sockeye and fell in love with it’s texture and amazing flavor (view: Poached Salmon in Tomato Garlic Broth, Rosemary and Garlic Roasted Salmon, and Amber Maple Glazed Salmon). Then when summer came to a close, we

I can feel it and I’m so excited I want to run through the streets screaming! School is back in session, hatch chilies arrived at the market, the weekends are filled with football, the temperature is in the upper 90′s, and the first of the coho salmon has reached it’s way down to Texas — all sure signs that fall is in my grasp! As a member of this year’s Copper River Salmon Fresh Catch Crew, I’ve been lucky enough to have been fully supplied with sockeye salmon this summer but now that sockeye season is over I have a

Amber Maple Glazed Salmon

Lately, I’ve been spoiled with salmon and  beer — all from Alaska. Life is rough around here. Who knew our biggest and coldest state could offer so much deliciousness? Salmon and beer, people! That’s better than juice pouches and Rocky! This summer I’ve had the opportunity to work with Copper River Salmon and experience what I’ve come to find to be the most decedent salmon I’ve ever had. With this last shipment of Prince William Sound sockeye salmon I was fortunate enough to pair it with Alaskan Amber, an alt style beer, from Alaskan Brewing Co. and the pairing did

I’m sitting here anxiously looking at the pile of work on my desk and an empty suitcase that needs to be filled and the two are not coexisting well. The husband and I leave in two days for California to run the Western States 100 mile Endurance Run. That’s a race from Squaw Valley to Auburn in under 24 hours. Wait, let me rephrase that, HE is running the 100 mile run. I do not run as the ice cubes would most likely fall out of my glass and that would just be tragic. If you want to join and

Copper River Salmon Poached in Tomato and Garlic Broth

Since I can remember my nickname has been Bear, so it’s fitting that salmon is by far my favorite fish. Sashimi, poached, pan seared, grilled, cedar planked — I will eat it all. It’s pretty ridiculous. That’s why when Copper River Salmon asked this Texas girl to be apart of this summer’s Copper River Salmon season I was elated. Hmm…let me see, a summers worth of cooking the freshest and finest salmon in the world? That wasn’t hard for me to say yes to. I think it was harder to say “yes” to my husband when he asked me to

Freezer to plate are words I don’t usually shout from the rooftops, but when you’re talking about wild seafood I’m all for it! Until lately, I never knew that you could just throw a frozen piece of fish in the oven and cook it in a relatively short time with good outcomes.  Alaska Seafood has organized a beautiful campaign to teach us this simple Cook It Frozen technique and I’ve been asked to test it out along with the Cook It Frozen website, and Cook It Frozen iPhone app. With their commitment to wild sustainable fishing practices not only does Alaska Seafood care about

Mom, this one’s for you. It’s all here when you need the recipe for one of your book clubs! Just remember that fish doesn’t need to cook for an hour. Rosemary and garlic roasted salmon is a quick, simple and oh my word delicious way to cook salmon. Healthy, light and bursting with flavor, this is our favorite way to eat the delectable fish! Cook it along with some fresh summer green beans and you have a meal in 10 minutes. Even Mia enjoys it. No lie. She stuffs it in her mouth. We’re still working on those table manners.
