This past Sunday, my friend Dennis called me with an offer to share some freshly caught salmon he had fished for himself. Over the weekend he went to Half-Moon Bay, (just south of us here in San Francisco), using Fishing Boat charter services to take him 21 miles into the Pacific.
When he called me, I was already busy preparing my meals for the week, so I asked him if I could pick the fish up from him on Monday instead. He said okay, but to hurry because it is best eaten fresh. So, on his advice I quickly picked the fresh-caught King Salmon up and let me tell you what a TREAT! It was unlike anything I have ever eaten before- with a taste so orangey and buttery it was melting in my mouth with each bite I savored.
You don’t need to go through all of this just for fresh fish (just buy fresh salmon from a reputable dealer), but if you do go fishing for some salmon sometime, use this recipe to prepare this amazingly flavorful fresh catch.
Fresh King Salmon:
Spread some finely chopped garlic over your salmon, spray it down with lemon juice and then salt and pepper to taste. It’s as easy as that! Roast at 400 F for only 10 minutes. Note- this salmon was so fresh that it was okay to cook it to just medium-done. For less fresh fish, simply increase cooking time by a few minutes and cook until just flaky.
