Salmon with Ginger, Lavender Honey & Cuban Rum
I dreamt this recipe up on the way home tonight via train. (THE BEAUTY of PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION!! – You can actually READ, or THINK of what you want to do without putting drivers at risk!!)
Had all the ingredients and it worked PERFECTLY! SO YUMMY!!!!!
It also has a bit of orange marmalade on the top to really help it glaze when you saute it for ever so under a few minutes……
Salmon for Two –
Mix fresh grated ginger (2 thumbs worth) with 2 T Olive Oil, 2 T Lavender Honey, Squeeze of half lemon and a jigger or two of Cuban Rum* (or any golden rum)(melt the lavender honey for only 7 seconds in microwave to get it into liquid form – as the lavender honey is often solid ) and put all of this over the salmon for atleast 1/2 hour before sauteing it.
It will glaze beautifully from he sugars in the honey and marmelade –
It has a lovely creamy subtle sweet ginger taste.
I think you will so enjoy it!!!!
