Lemonade Baked Salmon

6 Jul

Leftover lemonade anybody?  Is there such a thing, I ask?  Let me tell you how it happened.  We, as in the Forks of Salmon Playgroup, had a lemonade stand at the 4th of July celebration ‘downtown’, Forks of Salmon.  It was a hit and tons of fun.  The lemonade was homemade and the kids helped make and sell it too!  Special Bonus was the Rose Petal & Lavender water used for roughly half of it made.  A person could get original or floral, each cup came with a slice of lemon.  The floral sold out pretty quickly, so was not used here, but I have a sneaking suspicion it would work well with this dish and maybe even poultry too……..

     We sold about 8 gallons of lemonade by the 16 oz. cup.  Thats a lot for our little town.  It was hot.  I sent some home with a few parents who helped (Thank you Jess and Jamie!), dumped the last few cups of lemon slices in the remaining quart and took it home.  You’d think we’ve drank it up, but it sat all night into the next day on our kitchen counter until dinner time when I was needing to make space to cook and poking around for ideas to embellish on our last piece of salmon from last year I’d pulled out of the freezer.   By this time, the lemonade was super strong too!  I was a little concerned it might be watery, but it baked up perfectly tender and the liquid sauced up beautifully.  We served this with vegetable Nori and Ghost (plain rice) Rolls, Steamed Vegetables and Seaweed Salad.  Here is the recipe, try it sometime & enjoy!
