Glazed Salmon

I owe you two main course recipes.  Forgive me.  I’m behind.  How about I write next to nothing and just post pictures and the recipe?  Because really, there isn’t much anything to this recipe except some fresh salmon, vegetable stock, 4 minutes and a dab of thickener.  Plus a whole lot of yumminess.  I wasn’t going to post it, but Farmer Becky and The Big Guy said I had to – because it looks all complicated.  I promise you it isn’t.  Notwithstanding, they wanted instructions.  More than happy to oblige.

Glazed Salmon

Glazing the simply poached salmon is just a 30 second step to finish it off.  And somehow, that spoonful of glaze transforms the salmon into something just a little more fanciful, a little more special.

We ate it with Orange Herb Slaw and Green Pea & Pineapple Salad.  It was a light and summery plate of goodness.  In reality, although it looks light, it is mighty filling.  In a very good, *SANE™ way.

Here’s how you do it.

  • 1 cup / 8 fl oz. vegetable stock
  • 4 salmon fillets
  • ½ tsp. konjac flour (glucomannan powder)
  • ¼ cup / 2 fl oz. vegetable stock

  5. Carefully lift the fillets out of the skillet and place in a serving dish. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  6. Bring the stock in the skillet back to a boil.
  7. Whisking rapidly, make a slurry in a small bowl or ramekin, using the konjac flour and the ¼ cup of vegetable stock.
