As you can see from my list of Fish & Seafood
recipes, we really love salmon. It's nice to find new ways to fix it, and this
recipe is taken from a fun book called Inter Courses, an aphrodisiac
cookbook by Martha Hopkins and Randall Lockridge. The marinade combines
ingredients with interesting flavors that marry well with the sweet salmon
flesh - Dijon, garlic, coriander, cayenne, lemon and just enough honey to make
the flavors work beautifully.
Combine the olive oil, honey, mustard, garlic,
cayenne, coriander, lemon juice and salt in a shallow baking dish - mix well.
Add salmon steaks and let marinade for 30 minutes (we let ours sit for over an
hour) at room temperature, turning to make sure each side is coated.
Preheat oven to 350°
and bake salmon for 4-6 minutes, then turn and bake for another 4-6 minutes.
Check for doneness; if your salmon steaks are thinner, bake for less time - you
don't want to over-bake!
Garnish with dill
