Are You Ready for Some Salmon? Great Alaska Seafood #Review

I planned a delicious dinner for Valentine’s Day yesterday and I am going to share it with you today in three courses. It turned out slightly different than expected due to the very fortunate delivery of a package from Great Alaska Seafood

Inside was a cedar plank salmon kit with two honkin’  King salmon fillets – the SMALL one weighed over a pound – two cedar planks and a dry rub seasoning package. Woo hoo! The hubby was going to have a Valentine’s meal he would love.

I so wanted to try the cedar planks but that is going to have to wait until the hubby buys me a grill – hint, hint – so I went with a good standby method of cooking salmon, in parchment.

I took the smaller fillet and put the dry rub seasonings on it about an hour ahead of cooking time per the instructions. I had the oven at 350° from my earlier bread baking. I placed the salmon on the parchment, closed it most of the way around and poured in some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I thought the beer would add a nice flavor to the salmon. (There are not photos at this point ’cause  it was madness in the kitchen. The bisque and the salmon were all a comin’ at the same time. Cooking two different meals at the same time is not for the faint of heart.)

The salmon came out beautifully. I let it rest for about five minutes and I served the hubby a third of it. There was no way the man could consume over a pound of salmon at one sitting. He will get some more tonight…

He brought me flowers. Isn’t he just the sweetest? You can see my rolls sitting there on the table. 

Since we had the bread I didn’t make him a starch, he had the salmon and snow peas in rice vinegar. He LOVES snow peas in rice vinegar.

He said the salmon was DELICIOUS. Sweet, not fishy and ahem, perfectly cooked. Tonight I’ll flake some of the leftover fish into the leftover bisque and he’ll finally get to taste my original plan for his Valentine’s dinner – with a slightly salmony adjustment. But the man does love salmon…

Stay tuned for the rest of my Valentine’s day fun. Next up a bit later today will be Seafood Bisque and then dessert. Mmmmm, dessert.

Great Alaska Seafood offers a full line of treats from the sea including halibut, scallops, shrimp and lobsters. Why do I suddenly want bouillabaise?
