Roasted Salmon with Garlic Cream

Postby pallen68 » Wed Jul 16, 2008 1:45 pm

Serves 4

This dish is very simple and very aromatic. Whole garlic cloves turn soft and mild when simmered or roasted slowly. Puree soft cloves with butter and cream, spread on salmon, and bake until done to your liking. Salmon should marinate for at least 30 min.

5 whole garlic bulbs
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup cream fraiche* or sour cream

1 1/2 teaspoons stone ground mustard
2 lbs. salmon filets

Remove papery outer shell from the garlic, but leave bulbs intact and cloves unpeeled. Place bulbs in a saucepan just large enough to hold them. Add water to barely cover and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook 40 minutes, adding more water as necessary to keep heads barely covered. Remove from heat, cool and peel. Cloves will be very soft and easy to peel. Place cloves in a food processor with butter and puree. Add cream friache and mustard and process until blended. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Cut salmon into 8-ounce filets. Spread top surface of each filet with some of the garlic puree. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 min. or up to a day. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place filets on a lightly buttered baking sheet or in a buttered baking dish and bake until done (7-11 min.).

Serve immediately. I would serve this with wild rice and a red zinfandel or a pinot noir.

* Cream fraiche can be found in speciality stores and some well stocked supermarkets.

Thanks for the recipe pallen. My wife hates salmon, but she loves garlic, so maybe I can trick her with this one! :)

Based from roel88's reply it does seem to taste great so I will definitely try this too to impress my wife (and my mother-in-law) who will be visiting us by the end of the month. I just hope everything will go well *crosses fingers* because the last time I volunteered to make a BBQ for them the food didn't taste so good.
