spicy Bloody Mary mix
DEE-licious! Admittedly salmon doesn't need a lot of help to taste wonderful, but marinating it in a bloody mary mix is brilliant idea. Being someone who likes my Bloody Marys spicy, I made sure to add a generous amount of horseradish to a store-bought mix before pouring it over the filets. We served it with rice pilaf and a nice buttery Chardonay. Unfortunately, we had no fresh greens in the house but I'm sure asparagus with go great with it. Only suggestion, we marinated the fish for almost an hour and it wasn't really enough time to allow the spicy flavor to permeate the salmon -- I would recommend a much longer marinating period, maybe over night.
Thanks for the great recipe!
I did not like this recipe at all - - and no one was more surprised than me. I love the spiciness of bloody marys and horseradish. But this marinade made my salmon very fishy tasting. I even added lemon and extra horseradish but it didn't help. Sorry.
Great recipe, very simple. I'm always looking for a new salmon method. When I tried this one, I used an "extra spicy" bloody mary mix and very thinly cut some shallots to single layer on top of the filets while I baked them. Came out superb. Definitely marinate these for as long as humanly possible -- mine were done for about 10 hours, and I could see letting them go for double that time in the future.
This was so good. I let the salmon marinate for 24 hours. This was an easy, and it gets lots of praise from everyone.
Good - and different. I used the Bloody Mary Deluxe (minus the vodka) recipe from this site as the marinade for my salmon. I basted it again when the fish was done and served it with Bloody Mary-ish veggies. Thanks!
I marinated the salmon almost all day and it came out wonderful! I will make it again and again and again.....
AMAZING! We loved this so much, even the kids did. It is very quick and envolves very little work.
***We have made this several times now, the spicy bloody mary mix is necessary in order to live up to the expectations of the recipe! It continues to be wonderful!
This was my first time to make salmon and this is a easy recipe. My husben a nd family loved it !!!!!!!
