Oven Baked Salmon With Cream Cheese

Take out serving size, about 125g, salmon bites out of your freezer - and if you don't have serving sized- , and instead you have bigger bites, you have probably made the right choice as serving size salmon bites are very expensive. You put these bites on a plate that you place in your fridge to let the salmon bites melt. If your salmon isn't split into serving sized bites you just cut it that way.

This recipe will, by the way, be a two-in-one; two different ways of preparing salmon.

Accompanying the salmon will be a scramble of cottage/cream cheese, garlic and herbs (if you like scrambles this recipe will be awesome for you.

100g cream cheese
2 slices garlic
2table spoons mixed herbs

Mix the ingredients thoroughly and taste with salt and pepper. Spread a part of it on one of the salmon bites and save the rest for the serving later.

The other salmon bite I spice with salt, pepper and lemon pepper.

Put the pieces of salmon in a ovenproof dish that has been slightly oiled, and put it in the oven for 20minutes on 200C. If you're unsure whether this time was enough, split the salmon with a fork to see if it is finished; if it looks raw put it in for another however many minutes you think will do for it to look lackluster pink, which it does as it's ready. Make the evaluation of the time needed carefully though, as salmon gets really dry if it's in the oven for too long a time.

Oven Baked Salmon With Creamy White-Wine Sauce

The following dish is designed for two persons. This recipe is, possibly, different - as it has not explanation of what to do with the salmon. As you might know, baking salmon in oven is not an especially complicated task; you basically put it in and then it "bakes itself". So, no explanation needed there.
However, you don't know how to do this sauce by heart, so I thought an explanation would be useful:

The following are the ingredients that the sauce for this salmon dish consists of

400g/1lb salmon filet
2dl cream
2-3table spoons white wine or cooking wine
1 table spoon fish stock
Salt and whitepepper
mixed vegetables; you could for example use carrots, sugar peas, broccolli and green beans

The Following Is How To Make This Variant Of Baked Salmon
Begin by turning on your oven at 200celsius. Cook the cream and wine together in a saucepan. Do not use the fish stock to flavor the sauce, before the sauce is well thickened, or it will be salty after cooking together with the other cream and wine.
Put the salmon on an oven proof dish and steak the salmon for 15 minutes in the oven. Put the vegetables of your choice in a bit of bioling, salted water and let them cook for about three to four minutes. In lack of a better word, "remove" the water; you know what I mean. Place the fish on a plate, pour over the fish the sauce and decorate with vegetables.
Serve with cooked potato or rice.

Interesting Facts About Salmon

*Did you know that before a salmon is born, it has different forms. Or the eggs have - as they go through different stages. They go from being eggs, to sac fry or alevin, and then into parr at a quick rate. They stay at the parr-stage for a few years, and then become smolts. (you will have to read up somewhere else to find the specifics of these different stages, as this article is dedicated to provide fun, interesting facts and not a detail study)

*Did you know that only one tenth of all salmon eggs survive long enough to experience the, later, smolts stage?

*Did you know that salmon begin their life in fresh water, travel to the open ocean for a few years, and then return (to reproduce)?

*Did you know that the myth that salmon, when they are to reproduce, return to the exact spot where they once were born, is true?

*Did you know that salmon live where glaciers once were?

*Did you know that salmon travel great distances? And this doesn't mean a few miles, or 50 - but some salmon in idahoo travel 900miles.

*Did you know they are good climbers, also? The aforementioned salmon species, on the same journey, climb 2100m (7000feet)

*Yes, I said "salmon species". ...As salmon are actually not one fish, but a common name for a number of fishes, from a family where trouts also adher to - and salmon differentiate from trout in that, as opposed to the trout's static nature, travel.

2 table spoons of olive oil

Salt and whitepepper

Ingredients for seasoning of salmon baked in oven

4table spoons pesto/4table spoons tapenade/4table spoons ajvar (east european sauce consisting of aubergine, onion and paprika – here is a recipe http://www.ehow.com/how_2112073_ajvar-red-pepper-spread.html) about 1teaspoon chipotle pasta or sambal oelek.

Potential filling to use when you oven bake salmon:
4table spoons chopped crumbled feta cheese or 4table spoons hacked anchovy or 4table spoons natural or flavored cottage cheese.

How to make the salmon that you bake awesome? Use these accompaniments
Roasted “rotfrukter” – “rotfrukter” being a Swedish term meaning things like, and similar to, beetroot, potato, carrot. Accompanying the salmon etc you could for example have 12 small potatoes split in two.

2 peeled diced carrots

2 peeled sliced red onions

¼ celeriac, peeled, cut in small pieces

2 parsnips, peeled, diced

4table spoons olive oil

Salt and whitepepper

Bake salmon and use this sauce:
4dl greek yoghurt

1-2 crumbled feta cheese or

4table spoons pesto or

4table spoons ajvar

Below is explained how to bake salmon.

Start by turning on the oven at 200 degrees Celsius.
Prepare accompaniments like ovenroasted “rotfrukter” and put it in for 35 minutes before putting in the salmon (which should be in there for 10-15 minutes; meaning the “rotfrukter” will be done as well when the salmon is)
Split the salmon in four rations if they aren’t split already.
Turn around the filets in the oliveoil – salt and pepper.
Possibly fill the filets by making a cut horizontally in the middle of each filet, and put in some filling - like crumbled feta cheese, cottage cheese or anchovy.

Put the salmon with the skin down and fry it maybe for a few minutes.
Fill the salmon with seasoning like pesto, tapenade or chili if you wish.
Put the salmon filets in the oven and bake them for 10-15 minutes. The salmon meat should have become brighter and have become stiff in the middle. The salmon should be around 58 degrees Celsius in inner temperature.
If you want, make a sauce by mixing turkish yoghurt with the seasoning
Take out of oven the “rotfrukter” (potatoes, carrots, beetroots etc; which ones of similar ones you like), salmon and serve with the sauce.
