Slow-roasting salmon in olive oil leads to luxurious results. Rich salmon is seasoned with classic Seattle Salmon Blend, then we take a turn from the basics and baste with our Chipotle Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Smoky warmth and savory flavors are the end result. Slow cooking preserves its delicate texture, ensuring moist, succulent fish. This method offers an elegant and foolproof way to enjoy salmon at its best.
|1 fennel bulb, trimmed and sliced thin
|1 shallot, halved and sliced thin
|1 small orange, sliced thin
|2 lb skinless salmon filet
|Seattle Salmon Blend
|3/4 cup Chipotle Extra Virgin Olive Oil
|Preheat oven to 275°F. Place the fennel, shallot and orange slices in a shallow skillet or baking dish - about 3 quarts. The salmon should fit compactly in the dish so that the oil comes up and around the fish. Season the salmon on both sides with Seattle Salmon Blend. Place on top of the aromatics in the skillet. Pour in the oil.
|Roast for 30-40 minutes, basting the fish with oil occasionally, until the salmon is rare. An instant-read thermometer should register 125°F. Serve warm, room temp or cold.
