Recipe Summary

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound wild salmon fillet
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 thin slices lemon
  • 2 thin slices sweet onion, separated into rings
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon harissa
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Coat the inside of a 9x12-inch baking dish with vegetable oil.

Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper, and place into the baking dish. Arrange the lemon slices and onion rings on the salmon. In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, harissa, and smoked paprika until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Spread the mayonnaise mixture over the fish, lemon, and onion slices, getting the sauce onto the fish. Pour the orange juice and wine around the salmon.

Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is hot and has begun to turn opaque, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven, set a broiler rack to about 5 inches from the broiler, and turn the broiler on. Broil the fish until nicely browned, about 3 minutes.

Moroccan Grilled Sockeye Salmon

Our friends at Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon are full of great ideas. This 20-minute marinade for salmon on the grill (or in the oven!) is just one of many. They are sort of like our fleet's cheerleaders, and their Instagram is definitely worth checking out. There's drool-worthy salmon images, recipes, and a unique, genuine insight into life at the headwaters of the world's greatest sockeye salmon run - Bristol Bay! If you look closely, you might even see some photos including the F/V Ava Jane or other Wild for Salmon crew and friends.

From the kitchen of fellow Bristol Bay fisherman and photographer, Kai Raymond , via Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon. Serves 4-6 adults.


1 Wild for Salmon Sockeye Salmon fillet, thawed two or three of our portions would also be perfect for this recipe

2-4 tablespoons Moroccan Spice Mixture*

¼ cup finely chopped cilantro

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

* We recommend this mixture from our neighbors at Spices Inc to prepare an easy, but decadent, Moroccan-style grilled salmon. Or, you can make your own Moroccan spice combining paprika and cumin with small pinches of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, coriander and pepper.


Cut salmon into 1½-inch portions or leave fillet whole. In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, spice mixture, garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Coat salmon evenly with spice mixture and marinate 20-60 minutes.

For the grill

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Grill salmon over medium-hot heat, flesh-side down for 3-5 minutes or until browned, then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes.

For the oven

Heat the oven to 375 F. Place salmon in a shallow baking dish and bake uncovered for 15 minutes.

Salmon is done when the flesh flakes easily with a fork and is uniform in color. If checking with an instant-read thermometer, it should reach 145 F at the thickest part.

How to make Sheet Pan Salmon with Moroccan Apricot Glaze.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400º F and cover a baking sheet with parchment or foil.
  2. Place the cauliflower florets into a large mixing bowl and drizzle with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then spread the cauliflower out onto the baking sheet. (Set the mixing bowl aside for the green beans.)
  3. Roast the cauliflower for 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, place the green beans into the bowl you used for the cauliflower, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper set aside.
  5. In another large bowl, whisk the apricot glaze, Moroccan spices, and water together until well blended set aside.
  6. Place the salmon fillets onto a cutting board or plate and blot them with paper towels. Season them with salt and pepper, then place them in the bowl with the spiced apricot glaze. Toss to coat.
  7. When the cauliflower has been roasting for 30 minutes, remove the sheet pan from the oven. With a spatula, carefully move all of the cauliflower to one side of the pan. Transfer the green beans to the other side of the pan, and finally, using tongs, nestle the glazed salmon fillets between the vegetables. Brush any leftover glaze from the bowl over the fillets.
  8. Place in the oven and roast for about 15 minutes, or until the salmon fillets are opaque and reach an internal temperature of 145º F.
  9. Remove the sheet pan from the oven, and garnish the salmon and vegetables with roughly chopped pistachios and fresh parsley.
  10. You can eat the salmon and veggies on their own, or serve with your favorite grain. We especially love this dish with Israeli pearl couscous!

Roast Salmon With Lentils

Mitch Mandel and Thomas MacDonald

Few ingredients fuse nutrition, ease, and taste quite like the lentil, and combine that with salmon, and you have a truly satisfying meal that isn't hard to make. While the salmon roasts in the oven, the lentils are simmered. Together, both aspects of this dish merge into something truly special.

So, what&rsquos this &lsquoTagine&rsquo we keep talking about?

A Tagine (or Tajine) is a North African dish named for the cooking vessel that is is made in. The vessel is typically made entirely of clay and consists of a round bottom piece with low sides and a cone-shaped lid that helps trap moisture as the dish cooks. (Hello warm, juicy, and tender!)

If you don&rsquot have a Tajine, don&rsquot worry. (We don&rsquot either. Although, it would be a beautiful addition to our collection of pots and pans!) A cast iron skillet with a lid or a Dutch oven work just as well to create the same effect of Tajine cooking.

Heat oven to 350F. Marinate salmon in two-thirds of the charmoula (without the lemon juice) for 1-2 hours or in an instant marinator according to manufacturers instructions.

Heat a ridged grill pan (or the barbecue) to high heat. Brush grill pan with canola oil. Sear salmon on one side to create grill marks. Remove from heat and transfer to a sheet pan, grill marks up. Baste the salmon generously with the lemon-flavored charmoula mixture. When finished grilling all the salmon, transfer the sheet pan to the oven. Finish cooking in the oven until done, about 10 minutes or transfer to a part of the grill where the heat is turned on. Close the lid of the grill and let it finish cooking from the indirect heat for about 10 minutes.

Thai Black Rice Salad with Wild Salmon

Yvonne Duivenvoorden

Black Forbidden rice gets its name from ancient China, where the dark-hued grain was banned from commoners and reserved strictly for royalty and nobility. Today, it can be found in local markets and ethnic grocery stores, and is commonly used in Thai cooking and is perfect in this black rice salad!
