    I've been doing whole salmon fillets using rosemary garlic and lemon pepper with a few slices of fresh lemon on top… it's been good but it's starting to get boring. I was thinking of staying with the rosemary garlic, but then using thin slices of Granny Smith apple on top with a slight sprinkle of Chinese Five spice on top of the apples to give it a new interesting flavor… just looking for thoughts on this! /img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif

    I think the five spice might overwhelm the rosemary. An alternate idea would be to get some orange flower water and make a vinaigrette with it including some lemon zest and cardamom. Then use that to toss your apples with before plating. Will keep the dish nice and light all the while complimenting the rosemary and adding some floral notes.

    Try salmon fillets poached (regular court bouillon) with a simple cold sauce of sour cream, honey, mustard, lemon juice and chopped fresh dill, served with baked young beets, then peeled and sliced, salted and smeared with butter.

    My favourite way to make it in the summer is a salmon tartare with soft-boiled quail eggs. Everyone that's tried it seems to really enjoy it. Fresh and citrusy.

    This last batch of tea cured salmon went quickly.  It is kind of like salmon bacon - very tasty.

    I love the combination of salmon and miso. Start with given the salmon filets a wash with sake. Then marinade in a mixture of miso, mirin and sugar. Let that sit in the fridge for 3-5 days. Give it a shake everyday. When ready to eat, cook in a hot oven (~425) for about 10 minutes. Comes out beautiful every time.

    Don't be afraid to go Indian with that fish! Salmon holds up extremely well with curry spices and aromatics.

    Olive oil poached is incredibly sensual. Pared here at home with English and sugar snap peas and asparagus.

    Nice. Confit is the way for so many fishes.

    I fooled around with that beautiful salmon.
