Kingfisher Salmon Recipe

One of our most popular trips each year is to Kingfisher Charters in Sitka, Alaska.  In addition to the great fishing the food is spectacular!  Here is one of their favorite recipes from their chef. Can be used with any species of salmon.

Sprinkle salmon fillet(s) with salt and pepper, then spoon on a mixture of:

¼ Cup Grated Ginger
¼ Cup Chopped Garlic
¼ Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Sesame Oil
1 Cup Soy Sauce

Place a tablespoon of butter on the fillet and top with freshly chopped basil. Bake, uncovered in the oven at 350° until just done (10-15 minutes). Reduce mixture below to a bubbly sauce, and then pour over baked salmon.

½ Pound Butter
¼ Cup Honey
1 Table spoon Powdered Ginger
1 Table spoon Soy Sauce

Yield: 4 Servings
