Poor man's Lobster (7-7-7)
This is a recipe from my dad, he makes it for the Fish and Game Club every year at their annual dinner. He calls it Poor Man's Lobster, I call it 7-7-7. While it doesn't taste exactly like lobster, it is very flavorful and the salmon is delicious and practically melts in your mouth! It doesn't get much easier than a pot of water, 3 ingredients, and 21 minutes later a fantastic mouth watering meal! ENJOY!
Poor Man's Lobster
From: My Dad
3 - 4 Fillets Salmon
6 - 12 Small Potatoes
1 small bag of small Onions
1/2 - 1 stick Butter
1. Boil Large pot of Water with a dash of salt. Cut up salmon into medium size chunks. Clean potatoes and onions (cut off ends and remove skin), but leave both whole.
2. Once water is boiling, add potatoes and boil for 7 minutes. Then add onions to pot and boil for 7 more minutes. Finally, add salmon to pot and boil for 7 minutes.
3. Drain everything in the pot through a colander. Place salmon, potatoes, and onions in a bowl or platter.
4. Melt 1/2 - 1 stick of butter. Either pour melted butter over the salmon, potatoes, and onions or serve on the side for people to pour over. (The melted butter is KEY, so please don't leave it out!)
