Salmon question

13 posts in this topic

I bought some wild salmon with skin on. It is currently frozen. What would you all recommend as a way to prepare it? Should I thaw it first?

I thought about grilling it in a foil packet with seasonings, etc, so any suggestions would be good there as well.

Thanks!

I have cooked them on the top shelf thawed out with skin side on the grates. I like a little brown sugar on them. Google salmon recipes and choose some different ingredients for the rubs.

This is my absolute favorite way but you will need a ceder plank or a ceder shake that is untreated.

Spray the ceder shake with oil or rub with olive oil and then sprinkle Cajun spice all over it( don't worry it will not heat it up )lay the fillet without skin down and oil and sprinkle again with spice. Now you need the zest of one lemon and lime and a equal amount of fresh grated ginger, mix all of it up and cover the top of the fillet and grill on high for about 20 min. or till the fillet can flake.

Sauce

Mix up 1/2 cup soy sauce and 1/2 cup sesame oil and 2 or 3 fresh green onions chopped up into small pieces and mix up.

Scrap off the zest mix and cut up a portion and spoon on the sauce with the onions on top and you are ready to eat.

Hey Jim,

I'm liking the Ithaca 12 gauge I bought from you a few years back!

I would thaw it first. Then at least a 1/2 hour (I have done this for up to 3 hours) before grilling drizzle a little olive oil over it, sprinkle some garlic-garlic, Montreal steak seasoning and dill on it. When you are ready put it on the grill directly over the coals skin side down. Once it becomes a little firm I flip it over and sear the flesh. Depending on how hot your coals are and how thick the fillet is you may have to flip it back on the skin side to keep the flesh from burning before it is done.

Cedar plank on the grill is the absolute best way I have ever had salmon. Soak the plank in water for a couple hours first, pat dry, put olive oil on plank, fresh sliced lemons on the filet. Cook till done. Be ready with a squirt bottle to put out any flames that may come from the plank burning.

Is the plank a one time use thing, or can it be reused? Also, I have a gas grill, so any adjustments I would need to know about?

I have used them more then once but I buy the untreated shakes at Menards and I think a third of a square was $13.00 and that is pretty much a lifetime supply plus you can give some to friends. The planks they sell just for salmon I feel are just too expensive but I am sure you would get a lot of use out of them as long as you soaked them. The shakes that I use I never soak just slap on the olive oil. I gave the recipe to my brother in law parents and they felt like it the first time that they ever cooked something at home that was almost a gourmet type meal and they are in there 60s. I made no special adjustments just preheat in high and keep it on high.

Thanks for the info.

I just found a recipe in our local paper for grilling salmon. It calls for a brown sugar and soy sauce based glaze.

Looks like a trip to Menards is in order. 3d-ClinOeilPouce.gif

Thanks for the tip, BAIT956. That series of posts answered most of my questions.

Now, to run find some cedar planks!

When I have to use a gas grill, the grill is so close to the heat that if the planks are not soaked good, they are always on fire.

    • Youtube is the way to go. So many cool little self filmed fishing shows on there. Heck I have a channel myself where I record my fishing trips. Uncut angling is cool, I also like Peelindrag because he is out of Michigan like me. Screw those commercial filled, cheesy scripted fishing shows on tv. Times have changed in my opinion.
    • Krylon and Rustoleum both have aerosol primers for plastic.  
    • I had the fasteners they recommended but it still needs to be filled to prevent floating . I don't recall what spacing I used but was told later I did every thing correct except for the water .
    • I bought my first house almost exactly a year ago and am looking to put it in a garden which is kind of a new adventure for me. Since I don't have the best soil in my yard, I am thinking I am going to build some raised garden beds out of some 2x12s. I am looking for some suggestions on this. Is 12" of soil deep enough? Any do's or don'ts from people that have done this before?   I've never done a solo garden before, so I am kind of in uncharted territories. I want to make some salsa and possibly pasta sauce so what all should I grow? Tomatoes and peppers are on the list... what else?   I'm located in Duluth so temp/thaw wise, we are at least a week or 2 behind the metro still.

    • I think he just got triple owned, I just scored a ton of points in my imaginary troll game. YES!!!!  
    • I am making some bluebird houses out of PVC.  They need to be white.  I have painted some with Zinser primer but it doesn't adhere very well.  Any idea what I should do to get the paint to stick?   Thanks for your time.   Tom
    • I don't think Trump can do that much damage in 4 years, if he makes it that long.
    • Phony politicians of all stripes have reversed their position on the fence numerous times, since it is just a political football that is typically dropped once the election is over.     One of the obstacles is land ownership, and we are supposedly a nation of laws that stands for the right to own property.     In 2007, as the Bush administration was extending the fence, it sent letters to property owners threatening to sue them if they did not “voluntarily” hand over their rights to their land. The letters offered no compensation for the use of the land. Some intimidated property owners signed the letters thinking that they had no recourse. Others refused, and the governmentsued them for access. Although the government can—and did—attempt to use eminent domain to seize property from landowners, the lawsuits took years to complete (7 years in one case), causing substantial delays. DHS’s Inspector General (IG) concluded in 2009 that “acquiring non-federal property has delayed the completion of fence construction,” and that “CBP achieved [its] progress primarily in areas where environmental and real estate issues did not cause significant delay.” The IG report again: For example one landowner in New Mexico refused to allow CBP to acquire his land for the fence. The land ownership predated the Roosevelt easement that provides the federal government with a 60-foot border right-of-way. As a result, construction of fencing was delayed and a 1.2-mile gap in the fence existed for a time in this area. CBP later acquired this land through a negotiated settlement. The IG found more than 480 cases in which the federal government negotiated the “voluntary” sale of property, and up to 300 cases in which condemnation would be sought through the courts. Because the right of just compensation is protected by the Constitution, there is little Donald Trump or Congress can do to expedite these issues. A related issue is the impact on tribal lands. Although technically owned by the federal government, tribal lands are held in trust for Indian tribes, which federal law recognizes as distinct, independent, political entities. The Tohono O’odham Nation, which has land on both sides of the border, hasalready pledged to fight the Trump administration on building a wall there. In 2007, the tribe agreed to allow the construction of a vehicle barrier on their land, but the Bush administration then waived laws that protect tribal burial grounds, and during construction, human remains were dug up. If the tribe refuses to cooperate, the Trump administration would need a stand-alone bill from Congress condemning the land. Even on federal lands, it can take months to get various agencies to agree to allow Border Patrol to move forward on various projects. In 2010, two-thirds of patrol agents-in-charge told the Government Accountability Office that under land management laws, the interagency compliance process had delayed or limited access to portions of some federal lands. Some 54 percent said that they were unable to obtain responses to requests for permission to use the lands in a timely manner. In one case, it took nearly 8 months for Border Patrol to get permission to install a single underground sensor. Only 15 percent, however, said that these issues adversely impacted the overall security in their areas.
