1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons grated gingerroot
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 Alaska Keta Salmon steaks (6 to 8 ounces each), fresh or thawed
12 new potatoes or fingerlings
2 tablespoons melted butter

Cooking Directions:

  1. Blend orange juice, zest, light olive oil, shallot, honey, ginger, red pepper and salt until mixed; pour into a large zip-top plastic bag. Place Alaska Keta Salmon steaks in the bag; close tightly and turn bag several times to coat fish. Marinate for 15-20 minutes
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high (400°F | 205°C).
  3. Remove salmon from marinade and place on well-oiled grill. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, just until salmon is opaque throughout, turning once during cooking. Remove from grill and keep warm.
  4. While salmon is on the grill, cook potatoes in salted boiling water until fork tender; drain. Quarter the potatoes and toss with butter, zest and parsley.
  5. For Aïoli: Blend together all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  6. To Serve: Portion one salmon steak, topped with 2 tablespoons aïoli, onto a plate. Serve with one-quarter of the potatoes.
