Our wonderful neighbor Ron recently caught a couple of Salmon, and was generous enough to give is a very large piece. I am very spoiled !
Salmon with Summer Squash Gratin
4 large summer squash, sliced (mine were yellow, but zucchini would be a nice addition).
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Layer the sliced squash in an 8″x8″baking dish. Bring cream to a simmer, add cream cheese and mustard, whisking until smooth.
Stir in 1 1/4 cups of cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and whisk just until the cheese melts. Transfer squash into an 8×8 pan, and pour sauce over the top. Stir, so it’s all coated.
Top with the remaining cheese. Bake at 375 F until browned and bubbly hot (about 15 minutes).
1.5 lb Salmon
1/3 cup white cooking wine
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp dry basil
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Pull the pinbones from the salmon if desired, place in 9″x13″ baking dish. Add wine, drizzle the fish with olive oil, and sprinkle on seasonings and garlic. Cook uncovered in 375 F oven for about 10 minutes.
