King Salmon Summer Delight

Yesterday my daughter Tara had my wife and me over for dinner. Glen her husband caught a king salmon a couple days ago, and she fixed it for us . I really like fish but I’m pretty fussy about the way it taste. Without question this was the best salmon I have ever eaten. She fixed it two ways. The first recipe was a mesquite basting that I could not stay away from. The second was a Mediterranean dish with tomatoes, olives, capers, and parsley simmered in olive oil and baked to perfection. I had volunteered to smoke some of the fillets, but after tasting these two dishes I didn’t want to chance any to the “smoker.” I know Glen was thinking there would be some leftovers “NOT!” Fish is good for you is what I kept telling my health conscious wife, as I returned time and time again for more.

The accompanying picture is of Gary Wilson, Myself, Tom Boudrie, Ken Meloche, and my brother Randy. We caught these 10 salmon several years ago over by South Haven. We had a blast, but I must admit I didn’t have any great recipe for cooking them. I used to smoke just about everything I caught, but now I know better.

  1. I’m not a big fan of salmon, but mesquite basted salmon sounds as though it would be pretty good.
