Sweet marinated salmon and leeks with mustard vinaigrette 

Sweet marinated salmon fillet, served with leeks cooked between the coals with mustard vinaigrette. The preparation on the Outdooroven (XL) brings out the pure flavors of the salmon and leeks even more strongly. That makes this dish perfect to serve to your guests. 

Ingredients: (for 2)
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 20 grams butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 20 gr brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • Pinch of chili flakes
  • 1 lemon
  • 5 green leeks
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp honey

Step 1: Start with the marinade for the salmon. Melt the butter and finely chop the garlic. Add the olive oil, mustard, soy sauce, brown sugar, melted butter, chopped garlic, honey and chili flakes together in a bowl and mix. Cut the lemon into slices and spread over the Oven Dish. Pass the salmon fillets through the marinade and place on top of the lemon. Pour the remaining marinade over the salmon fillets and let the marinade soak for 1 hour in the refrigerator or cold outside air. In between, spoon the marinade over the salmon fillets a few more times.

Step 2: Meanwhile, make the mustard vinaigrette for the leeks. Chop the shallot and risk the leaves from the thyme sprigs. Add the mustard, honey and white wine vinegar together and whisk to loosen with a whisk. Gradually pour in the olive oil and stir in the shallot and thyme. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Cut off the dark green head of the leeks and place them between the hot coals of the Outdooroven. Allow the leeks to blacken well throughout. The longer the leeks lie on top, the softer and sweeter the inside will become.

Step 4: Time to grill the salmon. Wrap each piece of salmon with 2 slices of lemon and some extra marinade in aluminum foil. Grill the salmon fillets on the grill of the Outdooroven. After 10 minutes, spoon some more marinade into the salmon and continue grilling until the fillets are done.  

Step 5: When the leeks are well blackened, remove them from the coals. Cut them in half lengthwise and remove an inch from the bottom. Remove the black, charred leaves from the outside. 

Step 6: Place the salmon fillet along with the leeks on a plate. Pour the mustard vinaigrette over the leeks and serve.

The Weltevree Oven Dish is more than a dish: it’s three dishes in one. It consists of two parts: a shallow dish and a deep dish and together they function as a casserole dish. The oven dish is completely made of enameled cast iron with a robust, matte look. This material retains heat and is naturally non-stick. It’s suitable for a variety of cooking tasks, but is especially great for slow cooking.

The Pizza Shovel helps you take warm dishes and pizzas out of the oven with ease. The enhanced handle offers extra grip and helps to keep it upright without the risk of it tipping over. This way the blade stays clean and ready for use. Place the shovel next to your oven or hang it from a wall.

The Outdooroven door matches any Outdooroven (new and already in use). When using the Outdooroven with door the temperature in the oven increases and the smoke is better extracted via the chimney, plus you will burn the wood more efficiently.

The chimney cowl protects the Outdooroven pipe against possible incoming rain and acts as a spark arrestor.

The Outdooroven XL fits perfectly on top of this wooden XL Base. There is space underneath to store cooking supplies or firewood, completing any outdoor kitchen.

This pizza stone allows you to bake delicious sandwiches, hot treats and pizzas in the Outdoor oven. The pizza stone is made for the oven of the Outdoor oven and is not suitable for the XL variant. Get a new pizza stone here if the current one needs replacing.
