"Faster than a frozen pizza!"
Can you cook wild Alaskan salmon from frozen? Absolutely! Didn't thaw the salmon? Don't worry! You can cook your frozen salmon by following this simple recipe and even have a starch and vegetable on the side. As our fisherman said, cooking salmon is "faster than a frozen pizza!" And definitely much healthier!
Total cooking time including prep is 30 mins or less.
For the fish: Frozen salmon filet(s) Olive oil Salt Pepper
For the sides: Fresh broccoli Frozen french fries
For the sauce:
Mayonnaise Ground black pepper Mustard (any kind you have on hand will work) Pickles (we love Milwaukee's Baby Kosher Dills)
1. Remove frozen salmon from the packaging.
2. Lightly drizzle frying pan with olive oil and put the salmon on the pan skin side down.
Turn heat to medium-low and cover the pan.
3. Leave the fish skin side down until it seems cooked all the way through (about 20-minutes), then flip it for couple minutes.
While the salmon is cooking make your french fries (use your oven and follow instructions on the bag), broccoli and tartar sauce.
For tartar sauce, take one small pickle and cut it into smallest cubes you can. Mix with about a cup of mayonnaise. Add about a spoonful of mustard. Add ground black pepper (deliberately). Add a little bit of pickle juice to get a semi-runny consistency. If the sauce seems too thick, add more pickle juice. If the sauce seems too runny or tastes too sour, add mayo.
For broccoli, cut it into about 1-inch pieces and use salt and pepper to season it. Then steam it in a steamer until it gets soft. Make sure to keep checking every couple of minutes not to overcook.
