Citrus Salmon With Date and Herb Paste


I make salmon a lot during the year and keep trying to come up with new recipes. This one is perfect for Rosh Hashanah, as I like to incorporate simanim into all my dishes. It presents so beautifully on a long platter, with a pop of color from the citrus. Click here to download the full holiday Family Table supplement, exclusive to Kosher.com.


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
2. Place salmon on a baking sheet lined with Gefen Parchment Paper.
3. In a small bowl, place dates and boiling water and soak for half an hour until soft. Blend in a food processor.
4. While the machine is running, add oil, vinegar, garlic, and fresh herbs; blend until a paste is formed.
5. Spread paste over salmon. Place citrus slices over the salmon in an alternating pattern.
6. Bake for 20 minutes.

Notes: Here’s a shortcut sauce recipe that will taste delicious as well!

• 3 cloves garlic, crushed

• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 2 tablespoons Heaven & Earth Date Syrup (silan)

• 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

• 1 teaspoon kosher salt

In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients and pour over salmon. Place citrus slices over the salmon in an alternating pattern and bake for 20 minutes as above.
