According to NOAA Fisheries Service:

  • Salmon are an important source of spiritual and physical sustenance for west coast Indian tribes, and they are very important to many other residents of the west coast and to west coast economies.
  • Chinook salmon are also called tyee or king salmon. They are called “king” because they are the largest of the Pacific salmon. Chinook salmon reach as much as 58 inches in length and up to 129 pounds in weight, but generally Chinook mature at about 36 inches and 30 pounds.
  • Chinook salmon mature and return to fresh water to spawn after reaching an age of 2 to 7 years.
  • The scientific name for Chinook salmon, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, is derived from the Greek works onkos (hook), rynchos (nose), and tshawytscha (the common name for the species in Siberia and Alaska).

By ASMI

This salmon recipe can be prepared with frozen fish and takes less than a half-hour to prepare.
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 12 minutes Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup roasted red bell pepper
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 to 1/2 whole jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 package (1 pound) vacuum-packed prepared potato gnocchi (dumplings) OR 4 cups cooked orzo
  • 4 Salmon steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

Directions

In blender, puree red peppers, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, cornstarch, jalapeno, and garlic. Blend in cilantro and chicken broth. In a small saucepan, cook and stir pepper sauce over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat; cover and keep warm.

Cook gnocchi according to package directions; keep warm.

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

Turn salmon over and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen salmon OR 3 to 4 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.


To serve, add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese to gnocchi. Portion 1 cup gnocchi onto each serving plate; drizzle with sauce. Top with salmon and drizzle with remaining sauce.
