questionscan you please provide me with a link to your…


Sorry about your illness, hope you feel better.
I don't have a link, it's something I make on my own.

I melt some butter and mix in some brown sugar, soy sauce, and honey. I just eyeball everything.
I'll marinade the fish in it for at least 30 mins.
Cook any way you desire. I use a hot air cooker and it comes out amazing. The sugar and honey put a small glaze on the fish while keeping the inside nice and flaky.


I'm sorry to read about your condition. That sucks, and I hope you find answers and get better soon.

We grill salmon at least twice a week here. This is what I do:

1) Tear off two square sheets of aluminum foil. They need to form a pouch and must be big enough to wrap the salmon inside.

2) Apply any seasoning you may like. We currently use Adobo seasoning without pepper (it has a blue top). You may want to adjust your seasoning based on your potential condition.

3) Brush on a light layer of olive oil.

4) Flip and repeat.

5) Fold the tin foil over the salmon so it forms a tent. Fold the top edge of the tent twice. This should flatten the tent out so it forms a packet shape.

6) Fold each end twice.

7) Grill on medium high heat for 5 minutes a side, flipping once in between. If your salmon has skin on it, grill 6 minutes on the skin side, 4 minutes on the skinless side.

8) Let the packet cool, then YUM.

Good luck, I hope everything works out well for you.


I like to grill it on the cedar planks that woot sometimes has on there site. You can also find the cedar grilling planks at Whole Foods shopping centers and a few other places. I have heard a few people going to their local hardware store and getting the untreated (non-chemically sprayed) cedar.

So I soak the planks in my sink for 24 hours to get them nice and wet and prevent them from catching on fire on the grill. I then place the planks on the grill, lay the salmon on the planks with lemon and dill and cook it for 20-30 mins or until the salmon is to your liking.

Keep an eye on it and a FULL spray bottle of water on hand as sometimes the planks will get to hot and catch on fire. It isn't too much of a problem, but you never want burned fish.

I use filets with the skin on so the when it is done cooking, I can peel the filet away from the plank and the skin stays stuck to the plank.


Here is another:

1) Preheat the oven to 350

2) Place a small skin on Salmon filet on the large piece of aluminum foil

3) Brush some olive oil on the salmon

4) Spoon a small amount of pesto sauce on the top of the salmon

5) wrap the foil around the salmon and pesto so it loose fairly air tight ( so that all the steam remains inside)

6) Cook for 30-40 mins depending on size and how you like your salmon

You can also put some uncooked green beans in the foil with the salmon and cook an entire meal in there at once.


@bkarlan: That pesto sauce idea sounds really good, and compatible with the way we grill salmon. I may give it a try, thanks :D


I'm sorry about your illness, too. Therefore, I am not going to post my mother's recipe for salmon patties, some of the worst vittles ever made. They caused one of our dogs to run away just so he wouldn't have to eat what I pitched under the table. Needless to say, all these years later, I'm not much of a salmon fan. :)

Good luck with your new diet!


Grilling or baking a fillet with butter and lemon pepper is super easy and adds a great flavor.

Just melt the butter and brush it on, then sprinkle the lemon pepper on as much or as little as you like. I'm sorry I don't have a link for this one, it was something my parents cooked all the time

I can second @wickedd365 and that recipe, it's very similar to one used by my parents when I was growing up.


@jjj611 I too am sorry to hear about your condition. I have a friend who was suffering from ulcerative coleitis/crohn's disease, (they still aren't sure which one it was) for 12+ years. He avoided surgery because he didn't want to risk having a bag for the rest of his life. They planned to do the surgery orthscopically (sp?) to remove part of his colon, and possibly hook everything back up as close to normal as possible. However when they got a look inside they discovered that his entire colon which should have weighted around 6-8 lbs. was swollen, scarred and weighted approximately 25 lbs. They cut him open and were forced to remove the whole thing, fitting him with a bag that he has now accepted as a part of his life. He tells me he feels like a new person and wouldn't go back and do it differently for anything.

I hope it never comes down to that for you. I hope maybe his story can be an encouragement to you.


I somewhat agree with your family; diet is very important. I am not going to offer any recipes because, to be honest, it is all down to taste.
Look for recipes that fit your health and lifestyle. Meaning, do you want to spend 30 minutes in front of a grill; is using a saute pan difficult; do you want to be cooking multiple side dishes? I am not making this comment flippantly. I worked many years as a Chef.
I suggest that you use methods of cooking that "slow it down" a little. Obviously, a crock-pot is easy. Throw it in and leave it. You can make some very good chowders, soups, and stews this way.
Baking and roasting are also good. The first time you try it, buy a salmon steak, sprinkle whatever you want on it, and put it in the oven at 375-425 for 20 minutes. Keep it in longer if you prefer a dryer taste (some people do).
Also the foil trick. Wrap Salmon in foil, with whatever you want. The salmon will steam, and the flavors will transfer.
You know what you like.
Good Luck


Hope you feel better soon.

Here's my recipe: sprinkle fresh dill, coarse ground black pepper and pressed garlic sparingly over fresh salmon, grill on Woot! brand cedar plank/s and serve with lemon.

Yeah, dill on fish sounds strange. It tastes amazing though, it brings out some of the more delicate flavors of the fish.


@bkarlan: I love the foil baked salmon recipes. I usually add a little bit of garlic and lemon and rub some olive oil on the salmon. Lemon pepper works well too, especially if you don't have a pepper grinder for fresh pepper on the salmon once you're ready to eat it.

OP, good luck with your disease. Hopefully it will get figured out soon!


Be careful when filling your diet with poultry products unless you buy organic ( Be sure to practice safe handling and wash all surfaces thoroughly. (Sorry, I'm a microbiologist... I had to get it out of my system).

Diet is a great way to aid in the overall feeling of "good". I really hope you start feeling better soon.

My favorite way of cooking salmon is by covering it lightly with lemon pepper and allowing it to steam on the stove until cooked. My mom used to make this as an appetizer by chilling it and putting it on cream cheese to be served with crackers. I like it hot with brown rice and veggies. It is also good served cold over a spring mix salad.

Recently, my favorite way of cooking chicken is by marinading it in walnut oil and cooking it on the George Foreman. Then, I cut it into cubes and serve it with steamed stir-fry veggies over rice that has been cooked with ginger.


Did you ever try salmon jerky? I am not a fish eater; however, like you, I knew it would be good for my diet. There are a couple of brands out there that have really simple ingredients, lots of Omega-3s, high protein and don't contain MSG. If I am making a meal out of it, my favorite recipe is from J. Hook's salmon jerky. Italian Green Beans and Salmon:

Ingredients: 1 lb. fresh green beans, cooked; 1 sweet pepper, diced; 2 Tablespoons of your favorite no-fat Italian dressing; 1.25 ounces of salmon jerky, diced to preferred size; 1/2 sweet onion, chopped.

Directions: After cooking the green beans to taste, mix with peppers, onions, and dressing. Cook over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add salmon jerky and serve.

But my favorite thing to do with salmon jerky is to dice it into small pieces and add to anything that you would put bacon bits on: pizza, salads, eggs, etc. Has a really good flavor and you are getting the benefits of eating fish.
