So you might be thinking what are those funny looking green things anyways?
So what do I do with them? Well after a good cleaning I typically steam or boil them. Once they are cooked the water is drained and I toss them with a bit of salt, butter and sometimes vinegar.
So traditionally speaking a fiddlehead dinner would not be complete without some Atlantic salmon. What I like to do is marinate the salmon in about 1/2 cup of soy sauce, pinch of ginger and 3 tablespoons of maple syrup. I let this sit for usually 6-8 hours or less if I am short on time. I transfer the salmon to a baking dish lined with tinfoil and cook at 400F for about 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes. To caramelize the top I broil the fish for a few minutes so it gets nice and golden brown.
When cooked this way the salmon has a sweet taste which means the kids even eat it. As for the fiddleheads my youngest and I like them the most. I guess two out of four isn't that bad.
