Salmon with Crunchy Cranberry Topping

We did an oopsie and waited a bit too late to try and place an order for a Christmas roast this year. Everywhere we went we were told that we were out of luck. Bah Humbug! This normally wouldn't have been a big deal, but we were in charge of making the roast for my mom's dinner as well as for Jason's mom too. Jason was able to snag a few small NY Strip roasts, not something we'd normally purchase for a holiday dinner, but it is what it is at this point. We're going to have to supplement with another meat dish to feed all of the dinner guests at both houses since neither roast is big enough for how many people are coming to dinner this year. Normally we do a few lobsters in addition to a beef dish, but we thought we'd skip those this year and buy extra salmon instead to make this festive red and green dish of Salmon with Crunchy Cranberry Topping, a holiday dinner saving recipe from Golden Blossom Honey if there ever was one!

 
I have never been a fan of seafood, but I will try to choke down salmon a few times a year because of its health benefits. The key to good salmon is not buying those frozen fillet bags from the freezer section at the grocery store, but hand picking them from your local meat market in the fresh display case. They cost a little more than the prepacked portions, but trust me, it makes a world of difference. I made these salmon portions late last week when I was running short on time since this is an under 30 minute meal idea, and paired it with a crisp white wine (I'm not even going to pretend I have a clue on seafood and wine pairings, so you do you here) along with some steamed veggies and can say that I didn't have to choke this salmon down. I'm proud to say that I was a member of the clean plate club that day. This recipe is perfect for Christmas dinner, whether you're going with a smaller number at your dinner table or forgot to place your roast order like we did and need to add another meat to the menu. It's festive too, with the red cranberries and the green onions on top. It'll probably get more takers than the roast anyway.

Ingredients

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 cup panko* breadcrumbs or fresh breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/8 cup scallions, chopped

  1. Geez, you had just ONE task! LOL People here roast pigs themselves and it is usually the time of the year when they butcher poor pigs to have meat for winter.

    I cooked beans today as it is Christmas Eve and that is the tradition, but I burnt my tongue whilst trying if it salty enough LOL

    How do you take all this food over to your moma when she lives in a different city?

    1. Sorry you injured yourself with your soup. Mouth burns suck :(

      My mom lives 20 minutes away, so I time the food for it to be done right before we leave, then transport it in a warmed crock pot so it stays fresh until we arrive there.

  2. That looks yummy! One year, we had salmon BLTs with our Xmas ham. This year, it’s the traditional beef tenderloin with a mushroom wine sauce. I guess you’d be skipping my Neptune Chowder appetizer? Merry Christmas! XO

    1. Mushroom wine sauce sounds like perfection! No to the chowder for me, but I'd make it for Jason. He was so stoked to go to Boston just for the chowder.

      Hope you had a lovely Christmas!

  8. We eat salmon weekly here and all love it, except for my son who makes a face like I'm feeding him the devil. LOL I've never made it this way and will have to give it a try.

    I've never had a Christmas roast before. Typically, my Nanny makes a ham and then chicken spiedini for those of us (like me) that really dislikes ham. Well, with everything going on, we had our first Christmas roast this year! It wasn't bad at all and WAY better than a ham. (Bleh).

    1. I was never a ham fan either. My girls won't touch it as well, so we always do a roast for Christmas. They get stuck with it at Easter though since my mil hosts dinner at her house. Usually they just load up on side dishes and skip the meat LOL.

      I wanna come to your house for the holidays. Your Nanny sounds like she knows what she's doing in the kitchen!
