roasted salmon with figs.
08 September 2011
For dinner a few nights back, I found some beautiful salmon steaks at our grocery. I like fresh bright flavors with salmon and immediately thought of the touch that roasted figs might add to the fish. You've already heard about my love of fresh figs. Our backyard harvest continues and I've (still) been devouring the wonderful little fruits right off of the trees. In this recipe, the figs add just a slightly sweet and floral touch. Enjoy.
Roasted salmon steaks with figs
Sprinkle a roasting pan with a bit of olive oil. Lay down, one big bunch of green onions (washed, left whole), one handful of basil and sprinkle with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Place your salmon steaks on top of the bed of greens, Surround the steaks with several figs, sliced in half and quartered lemons. Sprinkle with a bit more salt and pepper. Roast at 325 degrees until the salmon is opaque.
