Sun Oven Salmon Bake

This salmon is super easy to make and on a long summer day when you can catch the late afternoon rays it can be ready just in time for dinner.

Sun Oven Baked Salmon


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Salt and pepper  to taste

1 12-ounce salmon filet


Combine oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper in a glass baking dish. Add the salmon, turning to coat. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Set Sun Oven out to preheat.

Using aluminum foil make a packet large enough to hold the salmon. Place the packet in a light-weight, dark metal pot. Place the salmon in the packet and pour the marinade over it. Seal the foil packet, place a lid on the pot and transfer it to the preheated Sun Oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Makes 2 servings.

Solar Salmon Strudel

Phyllo dough, frozen spinach, and canned salmon make this savory strudel look like it was a lot more work than it actually is. If you don’t have a pan large enough to fit one long roll cut the phyllo dough sheets in half and make two rolls.


1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1 cup frozen peas, thawed

1/2 cup plain yogurt

2 ounces cream cheese

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons dry dill

1/4 teaspoons salt

Solar Cooked Beans

When you get into the habit of using you Global Sun Oven on a regular basis you almost hate to see a sunny day go to waste. When I have my dinner covered I like to throw in a big pot of beans. Once cooked, store them in their cooking liquid. They’ll keep in the fridge for 3 or 4 days. I suppose you could freeze them; mine never last that long. Once you have cooked beans on hand, and cooked dried beans are so much better than canned, you’ll be able to create everything from dips to main dishes.

In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, celery and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally until celery is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in tarragon and pepper and cook for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside.

Drain salmon, reserving liquid, and remove skin. In a large bowl beat egg with lemon juice. Add salmon and mash with a fork. Add reserved mushroom mixture, parsley, breadcrumbs and enough salmon liquid to obtain the right consistency.

Line an oval lidded roasting pan with a strip of tin foil. Lightly coat foil and pan with cooking spray. Shape salmon mixture into a loaf and place on the tin foil strip.
