Flat Grilled Alaska Salmon with Bacon and Potato Hash Recipe
1 Cup Fresh chives, chopped
¼ cup Peanut Oil or Canola Oil
2 ounces Vinaigrette, prepared
1 pound Small red new potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick, cooked to just tender, drained and dried
2 teaspoons Olive Oil
½ cup Chicken Stock
½ cup Bottled Clam Juice
¼ cup Butter
¼ cup Snipped Chives
¼ cup Fresh dill, finely chopped
¾ pound Pencil asparagus, cut into 1/2 pieces, cooked until just tender, shocked, drained and dry
¼ pound Smoked bacon
4 - six ounce Wild Alaska Salmon fillets or steaks
Freshly ground Salt and pepper, as needed

Puree the ¼ cup Snipped Chives with the canola oil in a blender until smooth, season to taste, cover and let sit overnight. Do not place in a refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Add olive oil to a roasting pan and toss with the potatoes and bacon. Place roasting pan in oven and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes just begin to brown.

Add 1 1/2 cups each of the chicken stock and clam juice and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed.

Add the asparagus, butter, 1 cup chopped fresh chives, dill, remaining chicken stock and clam juice, cook until almost dry.

Remove from oven, season with salt and pepper, cover and keep warm.

Heat a griddle to 425°F.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper.

Lightly oil the griddle, place the salmon onto the griddle and cook 3-4 minutes until seared. Remove to a sheet pan, seared side up.

Place in oven and cook 6-8 minutes or until desired doneness.

Remove and hold warm.

Place 2 cups of the Hash around the center of a warm serving plate. Top with the cooked salmon, drizzle with ½ oz. of the vinaigrette and ½ oz. of the chive oil.

Bronzed Alaska Salmon in a Butter-Wine Sauce


Serves: 4

Prep Time: 5 minutes

4 Alaska Salmon steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen

1 Tablespoon olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil

2 Tablespoons of your favorite seafood seasoning

1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth

1 Tablespoon butter

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Salmon under cold water, then pat dry with a paper towel. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

Turn salmon over and sprinkle with seafood seasoning. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 2 minutes; add the wine and butter to pan. Continue to cook, uncovered, an additional 4 to 6 minutes for frozen salmon OR 1 to 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout and sauce is reduced. Drizzle sauce over salmon when serving.
