Grilled Salmon Glazed with Honey, Ginger and Coriander


It's been a crazy week here, it usually is, but more crazy than usual. Mother in law here for three weeks. The dog ate two corn on the cobs whole and had to be hospitalized. He's fine. Prom, graduation, college. I could use a nice cocktail. Or two. But we have been eating very well. Ok, maybe some takeout too.  I have been doing some cooking and grilling. Some. Salmon has been on the menu more often these days. Mother in law likes fish so when I saw this salmon glaze over at The Café Sucré Farine I knew we would give it a try. Glad I did, we loved it. I added some jalapeno, we like the heat with the sweet. 
I can't wait to make it again! Great flavor. Loved it!




Grilled Salmon Glazed with Honey, Ginger and Coriander
adapted by There's Always Thyme to Cook

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
juice of one lemon
one stalk lemongrass
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon sesame oil
4 salmon fillets (5 ounces each), skinned
coarse salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 whole jalapeno, seeded

Grind coriander seeds, garlic and ginger in a spice grinder or crush with a mortar and pestle until coarsely ground.

Make glaze: Stir together the spice mixture with honey, soy sauce, sesame oil and lemon juice in a small sauce pan until combined. Add the lemongrass stalk and the whole jalapeno. Salt and pepper to taste.
Bring to a boil and simmer until glaze has thickened to the consistency of syrup, about 3-4 minutes. Remove the stalk of lemongrass and the jalapeno. Pour a little in a cup to brush on the salmon and save the rest for serving.

Brush a little of the glaze on the salmon. Cook the fillets however you like, in a pan, on a grill, or broil.

Transfer salmon to serving plates and drizzle
with the glaze and serve.

  12. So glad you enjoyed this Carol - it's one of our favorites too. And thanks for reminding me about it - sometimes I get so into new fun recipes that I forget about the old tried and true - this is one of those, for sure! Thanks for the link too!

  13. Hi Carol. Oh my. You have definitely had your hands, your plate and your head full of a lot of crazy. Poor pup even if he did do it to him or herself. Sorry! That can't have been cheap. Crazy dogs! Mine too is such a stinker sometimes you just have to wonder. The salmon looks incredible and I love all the flavors you used. I have been a little bored of my usual recipes for salmon and would love to try this. Congrats to the graduate and the mama because I know better than anyone good parenting is the primary reason these guys graduate and have a good life. Yay for you! :)

  23. Your life seems like mine. My daughter has just had her formal (prom), was invited to another and insisted on wearing a different dress so let's just double the expense, then my dog fractured her pelvis jumping off my son's bed etc. And your dog ate two corn cobs? Is he a vegetarian? I'm glad he pulled through.

    1. And the before and after party dresses! Less expense when my son went through it! I'm so sorry about your pup, too! LOL, mine is not vegetarian, he eats everything. Including the mail one time.

  24. This looks amazing - just reading the post makes me want to eat it....and it's 10.30 in the morning!

    Given the hectic week, I don't think anyone would blame you for indulging in a cocktail or two!

  25. The dog ate two ears of corn whole?!! Wow. Glad he's OK!
    Your salmon has wonderful Asian flavors, Carol, and I love how you've presented it.
    Hope things calm down at your house soon!

    2. And no need to add salt to the potatoes. We got them at our farmers market

    3. yes, I read that on wiki not to add salt when you use the sea beans. No local Framers Markets around here :( But I'll keep my eyes open, you never know!
