Pan-Roasted Salmon With Tomato Vinaigrette!

Fish- " When Fish tastes like the sea, there's no need to hide the flavor in heavy sauces."- Cathal Armstrong, Chef n' Restaurateur, Alexandria, Virginia

The Above Picture is of A "Pan-Roasted Salmon With Tomato Vinaigrette!" This is is A Copy Cat Recipe from "Food & Wine" Cookbook/Magazine. I have not improvised or altered it  as such but since I like the garlicky flavor in my Fishy Dishes, I've added 1 tbsp of minced ginger-garlic and 1 Tsp of soy sauce. Now this garlic flavored Salmon suits my taste more than perfect! Pan-Roasted Salmon is a great dish for a backyard barbecue! 

While Salmon is getting roasted in the oven/grill- in the meantime..I think of this :-) - Boats and lakes come in many sizes...but one thing is for sure-eating out in the open water on a sunny day or in the marina once the sun is going down, will make seafarers of your most land-lubberly friends! Do you think likewise??  hmmm :-D

Anyhow-for now, I don't see Us (Parth n' I) on a boat cooking or roasting. So I will now take you back to the shore(i.e in our backyard/kitchen :P) to use a grill/oven!

But Hey You All- boats or no boats, I believe, simple meals... and sheer hospitality is to be expected - and welcomed at all times! 

"Special helps For Fish and Seafood"
Seafood- Lucky you if you live where seafood abound. A whole world of good eating awaits those who try fish enhanced with smokey barbeque flavor. Frozen fish and seafood appearing in greater quantities all across the country as people become familiar with this economical and low calorie food source!

*** When choosing Fresh Fish Look for:
* fresh, mild odor
* bright, clear convex eyes
* firm, springy flesh
* bright and tight scales
* Store dry, dressed fish in a dish, loosely wrapped with foil or plastic wrap in the coldest part of your refrigerator. Use within ONE DAY!

*** When choosing Shellfish Look for:
* in-shell oysters and clams with tightly closed shells
* scallops that are creamy and pink
* firm, meaty shrimp and lobster tails with mild odor
* keep fresh shellfish in cracked ice in the refrigerator
*to prevent sogginess and flavor loss, frozen fish fillet needs only partial thawing before grilling.
