3 Great Things To Do With Salmon

Bloody Mary Salmon


  • 1 pound salmon fillets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup spicy bloody Mary mix


Place salmon fillets in a medium baking dish, and season with salt and pepper. Pour spicy bloody Mary mix over the fillets. Cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the broiler. Broil approximately 7 minutes, until fish is easily flaked with a fork and surface is lightly browned.


Beer Batter Salmon with Coleslaw


  • 3/4 cup beer
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup tempura flour
  • 8 (1-2 ounce) chunks fresh salmon


Place oil in deep fryer, according to the manufacturers instructions, and bring the temperature to 350 degrees F.

Combine the beer with the flour to make a consistency similar to pancake batter.

Dredge the salmon in tempura flour and then dip into the non-alcoholic beer-flour mixture. Drop into the hot oil and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until done.

Serve with malt vinegar or cucumber dill sauce.


  • 1/3 cup apple cider vine
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 cups green cabbage, finely shredded
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Mix together the vinegar and sugar and let the mixture sit for 30 minutes. Then toss the vinegar-sugar mixture with the cabbage and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Just prior to serving, add the remaining ingredients to the cabbage mixture and toss well.


Sweet Bourbon Grilled Salmon


  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Kentucky bourbon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • Salmon fillets
  • Snipped fresh chives


Blend together pineapple juice, soy sauce, sugar, bourbon, pepper and garlic powder and stir to dissolve sugar. Add oil.

Marinade salmon fillets for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours. Grill.
