Salmon Marinated in Apple Cider

This recipe was inspired by the wonderful Chef E of Food Wine Fun, a talented chef who is super creative. She commented on my salmon and grapefruit post that salmon is great cooked in apple cider and she was right:-) I served it with mashed potatoes and cabbage slowly steamed with paprika (I know this is my favorite ingredient of the moment) Be sure to tune in to Chow and Chatter Blog Talk radio tomorrow for an interview with Chef E.


  • 2 wild Alaskan salmon steaks - I always buy these as they are sustainable 
  • one -two cups of apple cider enough to cover salmon
  • 1/2 a grated apple
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of thinly chopped cabbage 
  • one teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • a little salt
  • 3 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1/2 an onion chopped

  1. marinate the salmon in the apple cider and apple for about one hr then poach for 10 minutes its that easy 
  2. meanwhile saute onion and garlic in olive oil, add the cabbage, salt and paprika and cover steam in juice for 20 minutes until soft
Serve with mashed potato and garnish with thinly sliced apple, Jasmine and I really liked this one, hubby not so sure, not spicy he he

Hope your all enjoying your week so far :-)
