Salmon with Lime Butter Sauce
« on: January 23, 2012, 09:05:05 am »
A really simple but tasty recipe, originally from here http://www.thegalleygourmet.net/2011/08/grilled-salmon-with-lime-butter-sauce.html

For the salmon:
  • 4-6 salmon fillets
  • Zest from half a lime
  • Extra-virgin olive oil (optional)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Rocket to serve

For the sauce:
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Method:


Brush salmon with oil (optional).  Cook salmon in the oven on a tray lined with baking paper for 15 or so minutes at 180 degrees.  Or cook on the stove top in a pan if you prefer.  

Make the sauce:
Peel a garlic clove and add to TMX bowl;.  Chop for a few seconds on sp 6.  Scrape down sides.
Add lime juice and pepper and combine well on sp 5 for 10 seconds.
Melt the butter (microwave or stovetop)
Invert the MC, set the blades spinning on sp 4 and drizzle the melted butter onto the lid.  It should take about 30 seconds to incorporate all the butter.

Zest the lime.

Serve salmon fillets on a bed of rocket, sprinkle on the zest and spoon over the sauce.

Any leftover sauce can go into the fridge and just needs warming before serving.

Obbie - Yum, yum. So easy and fast too. Thanks.

sue purrb -  I steamed salmon and vegies in the varoma, with potatoes in the basket. The sauce was very quick to make, but I think next time I would sauté the garlic first as I found the raw garlic to be very strong. On the plus side, we should be safe from vampires tonight! 

ES - I saw that this had been bumped, so I made it tonight as well. I cooked the salmon on the BBQ, and served it with bbq'd mushrooms and salad.  The sauce was quite thin and not really popular with my family. I thought it was nice and tangy, but I probably won't make it again. I have half of the sauce left over, so I've frozen it for another day.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy the salmon.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
