Written By Gary Hynes Edibles / Main course / Recipes Mar 17, 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Baked Irish Whiskey Salmon SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestMy ancestors came over from western Ireland in the 1700’s and arrived in a small fishing village called Heart’s Content in Newfoundland. They rowed wood dorys out to the Grand Banks to fish for cod. We don’t much go in for green beer preferring a to celebrate the day with a fine wild salmon dinner and a dram or two of a good Irish Whiskey. This recipe is easy to make – all you need to do is get yourself a bottle of Irish Whiskey and marinate the salmon for four hours. Bake the salmon in the oven or grill it on a barbecue (now that it stays light longer). The salmon comes out very moist and tender. Serve with potatoes and fresh green veg.Baked Irish Whiskey SalmonINGREDIENTS2 tablespoons honey1/4 cup cider vinegar1/4 cup Irish whiskey2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest2 tablespoons vegetable oilsalt & freshly ground black pepper4 (6 ounce) wild coho salmon fillets METHODMix together honey, vinegar, whiskey, thyme, lemon zest, oil, salt and pepper.
