Curry-Glazed Salmon with Black Bean Orange Salsa and Mashed Boniato

Image hosted by Photobucket.com


I know almost two weeks have past since I posted last, but I hope to make up for it by bestowing upon you, the reading public, one of my favorite meals to make. This is a Kitchen Monkey Fusion Original (one of very few) that developed through a process of continually tacking on menu items and ingredients that probably shouldn't work together but somehow do.

I tend to make it a few times a year, and it's great for summer. If you don't live in a state with a sizable hispanic population, you may have trouble finding Boniato, in which case you can substitute a combination of regular mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes, which works out alright since Boniato could perhaps best be described as a cross between a potato and a sweet potato. Still, the texture is slightly different, and i think it goes great with the salmon.

Without further ado...

Curry-Glazed Salmon with Black Bean Orange Salsa and Mashed Boniato

Serves 4

Salmon
2 lbs. salmon fillet, scaled, with skin ON, sliced into 4 pieces
2 Tbsps. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. curry powder (or 1/3 tsp each of turmeric, garam masala, and coriander)
salt and pepper

Instructions:
1) Salt and pepper the salmon, combine olive oil and curry spices, baste top of salmon with curry and set in refrigerator for at least a half hour
2) Set salmon pieces in a broiling pan, set oven to broil, and place on the oven rack 2nd to the top. Fish should be done in about 7-10 minutes. Keep checking to make sure top of fish doesn't burn.


Salsa
1 large navel orange, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup black beans, cooked (or canned) and rinsed
1 fresh tomato, chopped
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno, diced
1 small handfull of chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions:
1) Combine above ingredients in, hmm, let's see, a bowl. Yeah, that sounds good. A bowl.

Mashed Boniato

2 large Boniatos (each approximately the size of a nine-year old's shoe), chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
3 Tbsps. butter
2 Tbsps. sour cream
salt to taste

Instructions:
1) boil enough water for the boniatos, with salt
2) drain water when cubes are soft, mash and mix boniato while adding butter and sour cream. Add more salt if necessary.

Presentation

Simply scoop upa big wallop of mashed boniato onto a plate, lay a salmon fillet on top, then spoon the salsa on top of the salmon. I also served mine with some zucchini wedges sauteed in olive oil. Very tasty indeed.

Hi KM,
Is there an email address I could reach you at? I'm writing my honours thesis on food blogs and their role in facilitating cross-cultural exchange and would greatly appreciate your response =)

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
