352. Heinen’s 4PM Panic: Fresh Fennel Baked Salmon

Home Newsroom 352. Heinen’s 4PM Panic: Fresh Fennel Baked Salmon

In this week’s Heinen’s 4PM Panic post we are steering clear of turkey.  I personally made far too much for the holiday this year and the leftovers are still waiting to be eaten.  With all the work involved in celebrating Thanksgiving and decorating the house, I wanted to share something completely easy with fresh salmon found at Heinen’s seafood counter.

Have you cooked with fresh fennel?  It lends a fresh anise flavor that really brings out the flavor of the salmon. And if you’re looking for the freshest fish in Barrington?  You definitely have to drop by Heinen’s Seafood Counter!

Fennel Baked Side of Salmon

Ingredients:

  • Two large bulbs fresh fennel, trimmed and sliced
  • two red onions cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tarragon leaves
  • Kosher salt and cracked pepper
  • one large salmon fillet skin on
  • 1/3 cup chopped flat parsley leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon salted capers rinsed
  • 1/4 cup good olive oil

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F
  • Combine the fennel, onion, oil, tarragon, salt and pepper and place in a large baking dish bake at 375° for 20 minutes.
  • Place the salmon on top of the partially cooked vegetables skin side down.
  • Combine the parsley, lemon rind, capers and olive oil and sprinkle along the length of the salmon.
  • Bake in oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and serve…it’s that easy.  Try in with green beans, roasted potatoes or your favorite rice and a tossed salad.

Sometimes I try things that fail. I added thinly sliced radishes and carrots as a garnish for a fresh look. It really just made the dish look messy. Tasty but I wouldn’t add it again. Live, learn, REPEAT!

I originally posted this recipe in one of my Heinen’s Sunday Supper posts here at 365Barrington.com.  You can find all the recipes from that post here.

The beauty of this dish is that it can be used for company when you need to serve something impressive AND because it’s so easy, it can be a great dinner on any weekday.

ENJOY!

Hi! 😁 Today's Word of the Day is 汉语 hàn yǔ -- literally "Han Language."

So, we're backtracking... or maybe just following the path of yesterday's post 😂. Either way, it might behoove you to know the context of this word.

The 汉 hàn in 汉语 refers to the Han ethnic group -- the largest of the 56 (government-proclaimed) Chinese ethnic groups. Some data have indicated that Han people comprise 90% or more of the population. So, it's unsurprising that this large group has gotten to name one of the most common terms for Mandarin. (Remember, Mandarin is what we learn at BHS and is the official language of China. There are other dialects/languages in existence.)

Anyhoo, the point is that if one is going to be referring to Mandarn Chinese as a language, it wouldn't hurt to know how to say it two ways! 🙃

普通话 and 汉语 can be used in most of the same contexts -- 汉语 might be a little less eloquent, but you won't get in trouble for using either. 🙂
