8 Must-Try Salmon Recipes

Salmon recipes

I love eating salmon and we often eat it once or twice a week for dinner. You always salmon listed in magazines and websites on the list of “superfoods” and the “10 best foods you should eat so you never age,” etc.

There are good reasons why salmon makes the list. It’s a great source of protein, Omega-3 fatty acides (which promote joint and skin health), and Vitamins B2, B12 and D. It’s also low in fat and mercury.

However, I always prepare it the same way – simply broiled. It’s super easy and delicious this way – just some olive oil, salt and pepper and then put it in my toaster oven (<– I LOVE my toaster oven!) to broil for 8 minutes. It usually turns out like this, minus the kale salad. I was being fancy that night.

I’m a creature of habit. It’s easier that way, isn’t it? But there are times when I want to break free of the routine and flex some creative muscles. I’ve rounded up some great salmon recipes – some of which I’ve tried and some that I can’t wait to try.

      That sounds delicious – both poached and your leftover version! The quinoa quiche is pretty tasty and super easy to make.

    Yes.Please. All of it. I LOVE salmon! I usually just grill it up, but one time I had it in this breakfast bake with baked eggs–it was like 6 years ago and I still remember it!

    I am not a huge salmon lover. It tastes too fishy to me. BUT whenever we go out to dinner Gary orders salmon and I usually like the way the restaurants prepare it. Maybe I’m just doing something wrong. Now you have me on a mission to figure out if I can get over my fear of cooking salmon! :)

    my favorite salmon meal is a flaked salmon burger on top of a slaw salad and dressed with a little soy sauce and maple syrup :) I am eager to try out some of your recipes tho, always looking for new ways to eat healthy.

    Starting to get freaked out that you have a camera on my house or something. For a LONG time, I didn’t eat salmon b/c I got spoiled with fresh Alaskan salmon when I visited Paul’s family. He doesn’t particularly enjoy eating salmon unless we are in Alaska – kind of elitist, I know! So we haven’t eaten salmon for years in NY – YEARS. I literally just bought salmon this past weekend (not alaskan b/c I still won’t eat it now unless we are there – but Atlantic salmon!) – and we had it for dinner on Sunday – it was SO SO SO good. And we decided to start eating more of it. So this post could not come at a better time for me =) We often just broil it w/ some light seasoning – looking forward to changing it up with some of these recipes =)

    My husband, who is a griller-extrodinaire, smokes the salmon in a rum/maple/brown sugar glaze. It is simply AMAZING. It’s hard to have it any other way once you eat the smoked salmon. I mean it really is delightful. But beyond that I like it sashimi style. Yum!

      OMG that sounds amazing!! Makes me wish that I had a grill (and a backyard) :-) But I think that I will have to figure out a way to try that glaze.

    Thanks for your recipe selection Salmon is one of my all time favorite fish. I like to keep it simple cooking it enclosed in foil in a large fry-pan together with a generous squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of pepper and sea salt from the grinder. Comes out lightly steamed and tasting delicious.
