Favorite Family Recipes

One of our favorite places to go for dinner was Carraba's and the one thing that everyone ordered everytime was the Salmon with Wulfe Sauce.  Here's my spin on it. 

Basil Salmon with Artichokes and Sun Dried Tomatoes

4 Salmon Steaks (about 1 1/2 - 2 lbs total)
1/4 tsp Red pepper flakes
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 c mayonnaise
2 tbs Dijon mustard
1 tsp Hot sauce
1 lemon
2 tbs Caesar dressing
1/2 c Fresh basil
1/2 c Oil packed sun dried tomatoes

Season salmon with salt and pepper. Mix 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, everything from the red pepper flakes to the hot sauce, juice from 1/2 the lemon, ceasar dressing, and 1 tsp of the oil from the tomatoes in a bowl. Spread the mixture over the front and back of each salmon steak than place the fish on a heavy baking sheet covered with aluminum foil. Broil in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes. Julienne the basil leaves. Remove the salmon from the oven and sprinkle the basil leaves and sun dried tomatoes over. Return to oven and broil until salmon is done , about 5 more minutes.  Squeeze the juice from the remaining half of the lemon over and season with a bit more salt as needed.
