Here are little Hebrew trivia for you. Did you know that salmon
I fell in love with Vivi’s salmon recipe the first time I tasted it. Vivi and her husband, Eli, moved to the United States over two decades years ago from Israel, where she attended the University of Minnesota and he established a Jewelry store called Apple Valley Diamonds. As fate would have it, we became neighbors and soon after friends. Since then, we have found a connection through our love for culture, food and one another.
Vivi and I have spent many hours in each other’s kitchens learning to make the others recipes. Some are traditional dishes from generations past while others are new inspirations. Each dish made over a cup of Israeli coffee and plenty of laughter.
Though this salmon recipe isn’t a traditional Israeli dish, it tops my list of favorites because of its versatility. The combination of citrus orange and salty Tamari mixed with a lightly sweet brown sugar sauce that marinates over the salmon filet before baking is an unexpected delight. Serve it over a bed of lettuce, rice, mashed potatoes, or sauteed vegetables and use the extra marinade as a dressing or gravy. It is a quick and easy to make and makes an excellent entrée to for your next dinner gathering or for a family meal.
