This week I was at one of our store cooking up seafood in a “Seafood Market” Demonstration I had Salmon, Scallops & Mussels, showing people really how easy it is to cook seafood 🙂

Scallops with the Garlic, Dill & Lemon Marinade

As I started it was a little slow so I was able to take a couple of pictures 🙂

It was a great weekend Seafood and Wine sample can’t go wrong with that 🙂

First I must share my new duds 🙂 I am going “green” 😛

This picture is the Salmon with the Asian Marinade, you can see a great char on the salmon from the sugar, this added a great smokiness to the salmon, with the hint of soy sauce and ginger.  This salmon was melt in your mouth good!!! 🙂

Seafood Marinades

Asian Marinade

1 lb. salmon fillets
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp. fresh garlic, minced
2 tbsp. brown sugar
3 tbsp. lite soy sauce
1/3 cup light beer
zest of 2 limes

Combine juice, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sugar, lime zest and beer in zip-loc bag and shake to mix, then add salmon, refrigerate at least 3 hours or up to 8 hours.  Drain liquid and pat dry salmon, brush salmon with a little oil and cook as desired.

Garlic, Dill & Lemon Marinade

1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup fresh dill, minced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 – 1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
zest of 2 lemons

Add all to a shallow container or zip-loc bag, add your seafood let marinade for 15 – 30 mins.  Then cook as desired, you could just roll your fillets, scallops or shrimp in the marinade then cook immediately.

I hope your try these recipes!!!  And of course in my Planking…blog I could not say enough about the Skuna Bay Salmon and that is what I used again this weekend and it is just so GOOD!!!!  So go buy it, find it!!!  Enjoy!!

  1. what a great idea to have a fall-back seafood marinade. Looks fantastic and you’ve made me hungry for scallops especially. AND, liking the new duds 🙂
