 RV Recipes: Baked Salmon with Boysenberry Sauce

Here is a tasty twist on serving salmon.  You can grill, saute' or bake salmon and enjoy within 20 minutes while camping.  Leftovers?  Save any leftovers to crumble up with a fork and add to a salad the next day!

Serves 2


2      4 oz servings of salmon

1 tbsp.  fish sauce (Thai Kitchen premium fish sauce – in the condiment aisle)

1 tbsp. oil

1/4 tsp  garlic powder

1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper


  1.  Place frozen salmon in a hot cast iron pan that is seasoned with oil.  
  2.  Let the salmon sear for a few minutes and it will develop a nice caramelized crust and the filets will partially defrost.
  3.  Season the salmon with fish sauce, garlic powder and pepper.
  4.  Flip the salmon over in the pan and finish cooking to an internal temperature of 145 F degrees.                                     Approximate cooking time:  2 minutes saute, 10 – 15 min. grill or bake to finish).

Serve with boysenberry sauce and a side salad.
