Weekly Challenge #8 – Salmon Surprise!

It’s time for Weekly Challenge #8.  Wow!  It’s already been two whole months since I started this crazy idea and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the response and great recipes!  It really has got me into the kitchen more, helped me learn some basic skills and it has produced some yummy recipes!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Now for the challenge!  This week I’m mixing it up a little andwe’ll see what happens.  The four ingredients are:

  • Line and Hook Caught Wild Alaskan Salmon
  • Ginger Root
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Red Potatoes

You have until 10am on Thursday the 9th to come up with a recipe a newbie like me can handle.  You may add up to two of your own ingredients if you like, just let me know what they are!  Add the recipe as a comment below or point me and the readers of Help Peter Cook to your own website where we can find your suggestion.  If your suggestion is picked as the winner, I’ll cook it up and post a video! (sorry there was no video last week, a hungry child prevented proper videoing!)  As there has been just one entry for each week, your odds are good of getting your recipe cooked up if you just suggest ANYTHING!  Give it a whirl.  If you need help, check out How This Works and Herb & Spices in the tabs above.

Good luck!

    lucky you on the Salmon!

    Ok, I am thinking some sort of ginger soy marinade for the salmon, then roasting all together in the oven.

    I would start the potatoes first, cutting them into similarly sized pieces as the Brussels sprouts (definitely in half, but if the potatoes are larger, then cutting them into quarters). Toss in olive oil and salt, then roast for about 20 minutes at 375-400F.

    Add in the Brussels sprouts and push the potatoes and veggies to the outside of the pan. Put the salmon in the middle and continue roasting the whole thing for 15-20 more minutes, until the fish is cooked through.

    Timing and temperature are uncertain, depends on your ovens characteristics….
