Rhubarb-Ginger Salmon


Today’s experiment was a typical “less-is-more” kind of thing…and not only was it quick and easy to make, it was delicious!
I’m happy I didn’t have any lemons at home when I made this, which if i did would have been the obvious choice to use. Instead I had to find something else to add a fresh sourness with, and since the garden is full of rhubarb this time of year I thought that could be a cool replacement…
To that I wanted a fresh spiciness, and thought ginger would probably make a nice contrast to the rhubarb.
So…here’s what I did, and I really think the rhubarb/ginger combo went great with the salmon!:

Cook time30 minutes
Total time45 minutes
Compliance Primal
Meal type Lunch, Main Dish
Main ingredient Fish & Seafood
Salmon. Rhubarb. Ginger. Yum!

What you need:

  • 1.5-2lb (700-900 g) of fresh salmon side
  • 1 Large fresh rhubarb stalk
  • 1 piece of fresh ginger
  • 7oz (200 g) cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • a pinch of salt

What to do:

1Pre-heat the oven to 400F (200C).
2Mince the rhubarb over the medium side of a grater.
3Put 2 tbsp of the minced pulp + 3 tbsp of the juice into a bowl.
4Peel and mince the ginger over the same side of the grater until you’ve got 1 1/2 tbsp of it, and add it to the bowl.
5Add the cream cheese, black pepper and salt to the bowl, and mix it all up using a spoon.
6Grease a baking tray and place the salmon on it (skin down).
7Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over it, and bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes.
8(If you want more color, turn on the broiler for the last 5-10 minutes, but keep an eye on it so it don’t burn..)



Note: If you don’t tolerate dairy, just omit the cream cheese…(I have not tried this without the cream cheese myself, but imagine it would work just fine…)

Have a nice day!
