Roasted Salmon with Green Herbs

How easy is this for a quick, flavorful and healthy dinner?  Shop The Aspiring Kitchen for salmon and Glunz Family Winery for the white wine. Geneva Lakes has a selection of fresh herbs or you can grab dill blend from Wildtree along with lemon flavored grapeseed oil.  Easy does it!

Ingredients:

BX0505H_roasted-salmon-with-green-herbs_s4x3.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.616.462.jpeg
  • 1 (2- to 2 1/2-pound) skinless salmon fillet
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup good olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup minced scallions, white and green parts (4 scallions)
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the salmon fillet in a glass, ceramic, or stainless-steel roasting dish and season it generously with salt and pepper. Whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice and drizzle the mixture evenly over the salmon. Let it stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the scallions, dill, and parsley. Scatter the herb mixture over the salmon fillet, turning it so that both sides are generously coated with the green herbs. Pour the wine around the fish fillet.
  4. Roast the salmon for 10 to 12 minutes, until almost cooked in the center at the thickest part. The center will be firm with just a line of uncooked salmon in the very center (peek by inserting the tip of a small knife). Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Cut the salmon crosswise into serving pieces and serve hot with lemon wedges.

Pork with Sweet Onion Marmellata

Make an elegant and easy dinner for your friends and family.  Shop our meat vendors for a fine selection of pork, our farm stand vendors for fresh onions and spices and Mema’s Jams for the orange marmalade.  Don’t forget to pick up a bottle of wine from Glunz.  Ask Peter for his pick.

 Ingredients:

  • Onion Marmelltata
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 large onions, thinly sliced (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (or more to taste)

Pork Chops:

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 to 6 pork chops
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Instructions:

1.       For the onion marmellata, place a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and the onions. Stir to combine and cook until starting to sizzle, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients.

2.       Reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and cook over low heat for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes to scrape up any brown bits. The onions should be a soft, jam-like consistency and a deep mahogany color.

3.       Meanwhile, for the pork chops, combine the rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Using your fingers, work all the ingredients together until well combined. Rub the herb mixture over the pork chops. Cover with plastic wrap and reserve in the refrigerator.

4.       About 20 minutes before the onions are finished, remove the pork chops from the refrigerator. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Grill the pork chops to medium, about 7 minutes a side depending on thickness.

5.       To serve, spoon the onion marmellata over the pork chops. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
