If you stock your bar at home with bloody Mary mix, this is a dish that takes literally 2 minutes to prepare! If you haven't bloody Mary mix to hand, use a spiced tomato or vegetable juice with a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce.
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! - 12 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 05 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was so good. I let the salmon marinate for 24 hours. This was an easy, and it gets lots of praise from everyone. - 06 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
