Bobby Flay’s Salmon Burgers with Hoisin Barbecue Sauce

I like Bobby Flay.  For quite a few years, I worked above his ‘store’. That would be his late lamented Mesa Grill. At Mesa, his take on Southwestern cuisine virtually introduced New York to the flavors of that part of the country.  Of course, along […]

Ana’s Salmon Pasta with Capers, Lemon and Dill

Chewing the Fat has been on a brief hiatus as I have been traveling gathering material for some new travel pieces for The Daily Meal. Pardon my absence but I think it will be rewarded with some new food ideas for you that will be […]

Salt and Pepper Salmon with Smashed Potatoes, Peas, Lemon, Pearl Onions and Mint

I’d go back to Ireland in a New York minute, but it wouldn’t be for the food. We never got anywhere near Darina Allen’s Culinary Course and aside from a wonderful Thanksgiving feast that we prepared ourselves, a dinner at Fallon and Byrne in Dublin […]

Lemon-Roasted Salmon with Asparagus, Kale and Potatoes

         A funny thing happened on my way to making this great salad. Two funny things actually, both of them involving Kale.  (But you’ll have to wait a few words to hear them.)  The basis for this wonderfully lemon-y salad recipe came Anna Stockwell from […]

Sautéed Salmon with Creamy Leeks and Tomatoes

         Salmon is truly a lifesaver for harried weeknight cooks.  Now I suppose that means most of us, most of the week. But there’s another great plus to cooking salmon.  That is when you need something to start cooking only when the last family member […]

Florence Fabricant’s Fettucine with Asparagus and Smoked Salmon

Florence Fabricant Is the asparagus better than ever this year?  Or is it just more welcome than ever?  How did it manage to poke its heads through ground that remained frozen far later this year than last?  And, once thawed, how did those same shoots survive […]

Melissa Clark’s Salmon with Anchovy-Garlic Butter

Melissa Clark Before you turn the page on this wonderful dish, let me assure that those dried-out and dreadful anchovies that someone left atop your last Caesar Salad are not at work here.  Instead, these flavor makers are worth a great deal more than their […]

Poached Salmon with Saffron Sauce and Mussels

One night, not too long ago, Andrew asked for something light for dinner.  I shouldn’t have been all that surprised because as the blog has been laden with cold weather comfort food, so has our table. I love the indulgence of these winter recipes but […]

Salmon with Mustard Sauce and a Cannellini Bean Ragu

  Salmon is a true workhorse in the world of seafood.  It is on menus everywhere and seems to come from an endless number of places around the world.  On my most recent visit to the market to pick up the fish to make this […]

Poached Salmon with Minted Yogurt Sauce

Cooking is often the most Zen activity of my day. Especially when I come across a recipe that is elegant in its simplicity, beautiful to look at as I am preparing it and finally, a wonderful experience when it is eaten.  This recipe, which came […]

Honey Glazed Salmon with Sesame Green Beans

Mary Woltz of Bee’s Needs in Sag Harbor NY The East End of Long Island of Long Island is full of people doing wonderful things with food.  Among them is one my favorite people, Mary Woltz.  The North Carolina native has single-handedly invented “Bee’s Needs”, […]

Salmon with Mushroom and Scallion Sauce

        This is a weeknight delight because it literally comes together in 30 minutes, it’s healthy and you get your Omega-3s in a delicious piece of salmon. And yes, there is all of ¼ cup of heavy cream  which last time I looked […]

Smoked Salmon and Potato Breakfast Casserole

       The food pantry that our church sponsors is called The Brown Bag Program and provides lunch for about 80 people a day.  It costs about $3.25 to fill a bag and, like every other charity in the City, we’ve been feeling the pinch […]
