***Remoulade Sauce:
1/3 cup ketchup (Max only uses Heinz)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Ground pepper, to taste
½ teaspoon freshly lemon juice

***Salmon Fillets:
4 (8 oz.) boned, skin-on king salmon fillets, 1-1/2” thick (red and/or white)
olive oil
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
--1/2 fresh lemon, cut into 4 wedges for serving

***Max’s Dinner included:
--2 cups of steamed rice, prepared according to package directions
--Ginger/soy sauce (Max’s favorite is the House of Tsang)
--2 ripe roma tomatoes, sliced
--Fresh sprigs of parsley for garnish


Make ahead: First, the steamed rice. Also, separately prepare the remoulade sauce by whisking all ingredients in a small decorative bowl, and place in refrigerator for flavors to meld.

Meanwhile, when the steamed rice is about halfway done, heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush the entire flesh side of salmon fillets with olive oil, and equally season them with garlic powder, sea salt; plus, rather generously with ground pepper. Place the salmon fillets into hot skillet presentation side down (flesh side), and sear, uncovered, for about 4 to 5 minutes without disturbing, until golden brown. Reduce heat to low, turn salmon fillets over so they are skin-side down, cover, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, just until fillets are cooked through and flake easily with a fork.

To serve, place a salmon fillet on each of the four serving plates, and squeeze a wedge of fresh lemon over each of them. Place a mound of steamed rice on each plate, along with slices of fresh plum tomato, and a sprig of parsley for garnish. Place the ginger/soy sauce on the table for individuals to season their rice, as desired. Don’t forget the remoulade sauce to serve as an accompaniment for the salmon fillets. – Enjoy!


Tip: Cooking times may vary, depending upon thickness of salmon fillets. The ‘general rule of thumb’ is 10 minutes total per 1" thickness of fillet.
