Seattle Salmon


By Shannon O'Donnell

Do you ever get included on those 'recipe exchange' email chains...the ones requesting that you jot down your favorite recipe and email it off to ten people?  Several years ago I received this recipe in just that way, courtesy of my old friend Mari Stevens.  I still pull it out once a year--I always bake it per the recipe, but I'll bet it would be great on the grill, too!


1 1/2 T fresh lemon juice
2 T olive oil
1 T Dijon mustard
1 T butter
4 cloves minced garlic
2 dashes of cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
2 dashes of salt
1 tsp dry basil
1 tsp dry dill
2 tsp capers
3 lb filet of salmon
1)  Put all ingredients, save the salmon, in a pan and bring to a boil...simmer 5 minutes.
2)  'Frost' salmon filet with the sauce and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Serves 6-10.
