We are so happy to share a recipe from a friend of Wild for Salmon, Nicole Gaffney, owner & chef-extraordinaire at Coley Cooks. Check out her blog for the full story behind this recipe. Thank you, Coley, for the delicious creations and commitment to protecting Bristol Bay! 

Summer may be over, but maybe you've got some peaches and Wild Alaska Sockeye Salmon Portions in your freezer ready to help you bring it back?   

Ingredients

  • 2 untreated cedar planks, soaked in water for ~1 hour
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 ripe peaches, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced basil leaves

 

Instructions

  • Preheat a grill to medium heat-high. Mix together the mustard, maple syrup, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pat the salmon fillets very dry, then place them skin-side-down and rub the mustard mixture all over top.
  • Rub the top of the cedar planks lightly with oil, place them on the grill, close, and allow them to heat up for about 5 minutes. While the grill heats up, mix together the salsa.
  • Combine the tomatoes, peaches and red onion in a medium bowl. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then mix to combine.
  • Place the salmon portions on the cedar planks, then close the grill and let cook for about 5-10 minutes or until the salmon is opaque in the center. Add the basil to the salsa, then toss to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.

Enjoy!
