Barbecue Scottish Salmon with White Wine Mustard Sauce, Parmesan Asparagus and Buttery Sweet Potato Fries

 

bbqsalmon

Fresh Scottish salmon is positively divine, but add an American twist with a little bbq hint and nothing could be better. These decadently flavored BBQ salmon fillets are topped with a delicate white wine mustard sauce and  served alongside a healthy green vegetable and a low- glycemic sweet potato, but don’t worry, you can hide any healthiness behind the glob of butter you add to the potatoes.

 

Ingredients:

For the Fish and Sauce:

  • 4 fillets salmon, skin removed
  • 6 Tbsp Barbeque Sauce
  • 2 Tbs cherry or blueberry preserves
  • 120 mL white wine (1/2 cup) *
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil

For the Asparagus:

  • 20 spears asparagus
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 80g  grated Parmesan (1/3 cup)

For the Sweet Potatoes:

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 T olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • glob of butter

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius (425 F) with cookie sheet in the oven.
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges and place in a plastic bag.  Add in olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Shake to coat and then place onto hot cookie sheet evenly space.  Cook for approximately 30 minutes.
  3. Lay asparagus on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. If thin spears, put in oven with sweet potatoes for the last 10 minutes;  if thick spears, 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat grill (broiler). Line a baking sheet with foil and rub with olive oil. Mix barbecue sauce and preserves together. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper and 2 T barbecue sauce mixture per fillet.
  5. Place fillets on baking sheet. Put in oven and cook until salmon is cooked through and begins to flake, about 8-10 minutes.
  6. While the salmon is cooking, melt butter in a  small saucepan over medium high heat. Add in the shallots and cook until soft, about 1-2 minutes.
  7. Then add in the wine and cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.
  8. Set heat to low and whisk in remaining ingredients. Cook until heated through.
  9. Spoon sauce over salmon, serve with sweet potatoes + glob of butter and asparagus (grated Parmesan sprinkled on top).

* For those who don’t feel like doing the math (I really didn’t either but figured it was my duty), the american measurements are in brackets (parentheses) for those in need!

    Pan-frying salmon produces plenty of splatters and odors that you keep away from by utilizing different cooking methods.
    Irrespective of where you reside, essentially the most reliable strategy to get contemporary salmon is buying steaks and fillets that have been flash-frozen at very low temperatures inside a few hours of being caught.
