Today we continue our series of recipes from our team at Alaska West – a bunch of folks who get the chance to partake in beautiful fresh wild salmon quite a lot in the course of a summer…
Jim Palmersheim quickly became a fan favorite on our guide staff a few years back. Not only is he a talented guide and a super guy to spend time with on the water…he makes a cup of riverside espresso so tasty that folks have literally been known to drive around the Kanektok looking for him, hoping to talk him out of a cup!
Simple Salmon by Jim
I’m a firm believer in the K.I.S.S! program. I prepare my salmon for a shore lunch pretty much the way I prepare it at home.
2 very fresh silver fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt
Freshly ground pepper and/or Old Bay seasoning
1 tablespoon brown sugar (optional)
Brush each fillet with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, Old Bay seasoning and brown sugar. Place fillets on foil skin side down and grill until the salmon flakes with a fork.
Cover and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
Enjoy with a fresh cup of Jim’s espresso.
