I usually base my week’s dinner menu on what’s in season. I mean, it only makes sense.
If it’s in season, it’s in abundance; if it’s in abundance, it’s usually cheaper; if it’s cheaper, I’m happier.
I love Fresh Direct because they have Seasonal Sales (dubbed President’s Picks). A couple of weeks ago, their Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon was on sale so of course, I picked up a couple of fillets. I mean, look at it! How can you resist that bright red hue?!
Recipe after the jump.
Steamed Sockeye Salmon with Dill & Lemon
2 8-10 oz Sockeye Salmon fillets
2 lemons, sliced crosswise
1 bunch of dill
2 tablespoons of grape seed oil
salt to taste
Put a pan over medium high heat. Pour in the oil, then add a layer of lemon slices (enough to cover the bottom of the pan). Place the salmon fillets skin side down, season with salt, top with dill, and even more lemons. Cover, & let steam for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through. Enjoy!
