What to do with the single piece of salmon buried in your freezer…

Welcome to my big, fat Asian freezer…we have a pretty old side by side refrigerator and freezer.  You can only cram so much in there.  There isn’t even any room for ice cream!  I choose to buy food items that can make a meal. My grandma has mysterious Chinese delicacies and food items coming out of every nook and cranny.  Lo and behold, a single piece of salmon buried beneath my corn husks for tamales…The tamales will be another project.  I found this awesome salmon recipe in one of Molly O’Neill’s cookbooks…very simple and subtly flavored and delicious!

Sake Salmon for one

1 salmon filet, make sure there are no pin bones hiding in it.

Place the salmon in the middle of a sheet of foil or a piece of parchment (this technique is called en papillote in French)

Season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides.

Drizzle the salmon with about 2 t. olive oil.

1/2 inch of fresh ginger, cut into a fine julienne

1 small shallot, thinly sliced

2 t. lemon juice

and 1 T. of Sake ( Japanese rice wine)

Enclose the salmon in the foil or parchment.  Place in a baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees or you could even do this on the grill..in foil..cook for about 10 minutes.  Open the foil or parchment carefully!  Burns from steam hurt!
