Saffron Poached Salmon Recipe

Ingredients:
4 (5-ounces each) skinless, boneless salmon steaks
2 pinches of saffron threads, crumbled
1 lemon, sliced
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
2 tablespoons fresh dill
Zest and juice of a lemon
Pinch of salt
Water
Black pepper

Instructions:

In a large straight-sided saucepan, combine saffron, lemon, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt and enough water to come halfway up pan.

Bring water to a boil over high heat, then reduce to medium-low. Gently simmer ingredients for five minutes.

Carefully add salmon to pan in one layer. Adjust heat so the poaching liquid shows movement but isn’t bubbling. Cook uncovered until salmon is firm and just cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Use a slotted spatula and remove salmon from liquid and let drain. Place on a stack of paper towels for a few minutes.

Transfer each to a plate and garnish with fresh dill and black pepper to taste and serve.

Chipotle Lime Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Shrimp Recipe

Ingredients:
12 large, raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 lime zest
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder, to taste
6 strips thin bacon, cut in half (12 pieces)
Skewers (for grilling) or toothpicks (for oven)

Instructions:

Mix together in a small bowl the lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, and chipotle powder. Put the shrimp in the lime chipotle mixture; make sure each piece is well coated.

Spread the bacon pieces out over several layers of paper towels. Cover with another layer of paper towel. Microwave on high until the bacon fat begins to melt but the bacon is still pliable, about 1 1/2 minutes.

Prepare grill on high, direct heat (if grilling) or preheat the oven to 450°F.

Working one at a time, wrap a half piece of microwaved bacon around each piece of shrimp.

Grilling: Thread the shrimp onto long, flat skewers (flat skewers make turning the shrimp on the grill easier). If you don’t have flat skewers, I’ve used two thin bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes beforehand) to the same effect.

Grill uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes on each side

Baking: Secure each the bacon onto the shrimp with toothpicks. Place the bacon-wrapped shrimp on a slotted baking pan. Brush remaining lime chipotle mixture on the outside of the bacon-wrapped shrimp.

Bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes, until shrimp is pink and the bacon is crisp.

Makes 12 pieces.

Carb Count: 1.3 carbs
