By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc are my top picks for Salmon. To decide on white or red, you should consider your seasoning and sauces. Chardonnay is a great friend to buttery, creamy dishes, while sauvignon blanc can complement herb or citrus-centric dishes. A light-bodied, low-tannin red such as the pinot noir goes great with broiled or grilled salmon. One wine you could try is Paul Dolan Vineyards Chardonnay Wine. It has 5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 20 dollars.

Paul Dolan Vineyards Chardonnay Wine

Sourced from the low-lying valleys surrounding the Russian River, an area renowned for producing rich and focused wines, Paul Dolan Vineyards Chardonnay is an exquisitely balanced wine with flavors of ripe pear, crisp apple and a creamy vanilla-spice.

Instructions

  1. Remove skin from salmon fillet and trim away any brown fatty areas.
  2. Place 8 bamboo skewers into the fillet running from the thick side to the thin about 1.5 inches apart. Then slice the fillet so that you have individual pieces of salmon on the skewers.
  3. Make a sauce combining the remaining ingredients, including the juice from the lime and the zest. It's also easiest to mince the ginger by putting it through a garlic press. You can adjust the mix of ingredients to match your personal tastes.
  4. Place the salmon in a deep bowl or ziploc bag and marinate in about half of the sauce, reserving the rest for serving. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour, more will break down the fish and cause it to "cook" a bit in the lime juice.
  5. Grill skewers on a high heat and serve. Eat with chilled raw Yu Choy, which you use to wrap bits of the fish and drizzle with remaining sauce.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

Price Tips

  • If you want the health benefits of salmon without the pricetag that comes with fresh and even frozen fillets, look for recipes using canned salmon.

Cooking Tips

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • Fish sauce is a popular ingredient in several Asian cuisines made from salted, fermented fish. It is used to kick up the umami in a dish. If you don't have fish sauce, you can try substituting Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce.

Green Tips

  • Wild Alaskan salmon is considered the most sustainable choice.
