Sweet and Sour Home Projects
What a busy weekend. We have been working on our house the past few days. Just little things that have gone for years unfinished. Those little things add up in a hurry though. Next thing you know, you find yourself working for days and days and fast food and pizza are your steady diet followed by bloated bellies.
Now I am thinking about redecorating. This blog inspires me: Young House Love. I know, this is a foodie blog! But, my other passion is decorating. Nevertheless, I am happy to be back in my kitchen slicing and dicing and serving up healthy meals for my family.
Oven-Steamed Salmon with Sweet and Sour Pepper Sauce
Yields 4 servings
For the Salmon:
4 fresh salmon fillets, skin on (4 oz. each)
1/2 tsp. each kosher salt and black pepper
For the Pepper Sauce:
1/4 cup diced red onion
Pinch of red pepper flakes
2 tsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup jarred roasted red peppers, sliced into strips
3 Tbsp. slivered almonds
Place roasting pan half-filled with water inside oven. Preheat oven to 325. Coat a small wire rack with nonstick spray.
Arrange salmon, skin side down, on prepared rack; season with salt and pepper. Set rack over water in pan, making sure water doesn't touch fish. Oven-steam salmon until firm 10 - 15 minutes depending on thickness.
Saute onion and pepper flakes for the sauce in oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook until onion is slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Whisk lemon juice and sugar together, add to onion, and simmer until syrupy, 2 minutes.
Stir in roasted peppers and almonds; simmer briefly. Serve sauce over salmon.
