Salmon with Magical Butter Sauce

Salmon with Magical Butter Sauce

With the kitchen still (still….sigh) under construction, I’ve been cooking on a camping stove outside on our patio. We’ve been super good, still eating mostly JERF (just eat real food), with the occasional not-JERF treat (ahem….entire bag of Oreos snarfed down by 2 boys.) When out grocery shopping, the only question we ask ourselves is, “is this something you can grow, …

Thai Fish Soup

Ever since our trip to City of Hope in Los Angeles and meeting with top scientists developing cancer cures with herbs, I’ve been focusing on wisely choosing foods for my family that heal, not harm. It’s tough some days, especially when we have boys’ activities that go through the late afternoon and evenings. The unhealthy, fast choices are so tempting. …

Salmon Teriyaki Recipe

It’s not often that you meet soul mates or life-long family friends. We (and I mean every one of us in the Steamy Kitchen family, including Coco) feel extremely lucky to count Todd and Diane of White on Rice Couple as part of our family.   I think that was 4 years ago when I first saw their post on Tofu …

Miso Salmon with Orange and Fennel Recipe

When we first moved into our house, I had carved out a small patch of land for the herb garden. Since the irrigation was a little messed up, the gardenette was close to a hose and small enough to be manageable daily. Once the main garden was built last October, I had transferred all my energy, plants and herbs into …

Grilled Fish with Citrus Herb Crust

Grilled Fish with Citrus Herb Crust Recipe - final photo

Last week my kitchen got more action than I think it’s ever gotten in its life. The previous owners weren’t big cooks and since we’ve moved in, cooking has mostly been at our outdoor kitchen by the pool. Last week’s occasion was a 5-day visit from Adam and Joanne, a couple who cooks, blogs, commutes and works together. Now, that’s a …

Teriyaki Mushroom Sauce with Grilled Salmon

salmon-mushroom-teriyaki-2609

The people who sell you ready-made teriyaki sauce are ripping you off! Not only is it expensive, but the taste of the bottled stuff is flat, chemically and too-sweet. The secret is, teriyaki sauce is really only 3 ingredients. Sure, you can get all fancy and put more, like sesame seeds, a little grated ginger and garlic. But plain and …

Salmon Burger Recipes + video on how to form patties

salmon-burger-recipe-2634

I love me a good salmon burger! Or crab cake or lobster cake. Or….okay, okay, I LOVE SEAFOOD! But one of the hardest things about making seafood burgers (or patties) is keeping the darn thing together while its on the grill or cooking in the pan. There’s nothing worse than watching your precious fish fall through the grates of your …

Open Face Salmon Sandwich with Sweet Mustard Sauce

marcus-samuelsson-open-faced-salmon-sandwich-0746

I can be pretty boring with salmon, it’s so easily mastered with just the bare-bones salt, pepper and a hot grill.  So why mess with simple and perfect? Well, because chef Marcus Samuelsson says so….and I agree. Marcus’ Sweet Mustard Sauce is a 15-second whisk of Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil and a squeeze of lemon that’s a perfect addition …
