1st of all, I'd just like to say that I find the format of livejournal annoying as FUCK. But that's no reason for me not to share this old family recipie. I think my dad does this recipie the best, but I was able to pull it off once of the two times I've used it. And yes, this recipie calls for a LOT of salmon (that's how we Schofields roll), so if you're just making it for yourself feel free to cut the recipie in half (it'll still take at least half an hour to cook even if you do). You know the salmon's done when you stick a fork in it and it's firm all the way through.

1 tbsp butter or margarine

1 tbsp ea. Honey and brown sugar

2 tbsp soy sauce

3 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp. minced garlic or ginger

1 salmon filet w/ skin 3.5-4.5 lbs.

Optional: lime slices


Directions: In a 6 to 8 in. frying pan, over medium heat, stir butter w/ honey and sugar until butter melts. Remove from heat. Add soy sauce, mustard, oil, and garlic. Cool slightly.

Rinse fish and pat dry. Arrange a double layer foil tent, put salmon in, baste with sauce, and pinch foil around it. Place in roasting pan with high walls. Bake at 400 for 30-40 min. Apply lime slices to make it look pretty.

This stuff is absolutely DELICIOUS if you can do it right. For sides you can do mashed potatoes and grill some asparagus. And yeah S., it's fish. Get over it. You need to aquire a taste for that stuff, so TRY THIS OUT.


when I come to see you in your abode sometime, feel free to make this for me.
I still refuse to eat salmon or any other fishy fish. i like Halibut and catfish and cod. My parents got salmon and I tasted the sauce around the salmon piece and I promptly went and rinsed my mouth.

I might try this out with another fish though. maybe.
