Yes, I know somewhat went into “summer mode” when I still owed you a fall [slash] spring recipe I promised awhile back. I first worked this recipe out back when cranberries on fish seemed like a great idea and cooking on anything other than a grill wasn’t anathema. Yes, I’m talking back in February and it is now June. I never got around to posting it because I wanted to serve it to my mother before she saw it here and started passing the recipe off as ‘hers’. We do that a lot in my family. A very lot! There will be more on this later you can be assured.Anyway, now that its summer it might seem a bit ‘off season’ to prepare salmon this way but I promise it is not so. Personally, I tend to shy away from grilling fish (I haven’t masted the art of no stick fish grilling) and I can’t be expected to give up salmon just because it is grill season. So I pan roast or bake. This recipe [slash] method is infinitely adaptable, however, so it should be in every salmon lover’s bag of tricks. Add more lemon, some basil, and omit the cranberries and you have summer salmon. Voila.
