Salmon for me is either grilled or baked. No searing, big no-no and no poching, waist of fish.

Sourdough Seafood Pie

That link is one I really like and have made several times.

I like throwing whole fish on the grill.

I will also portion fish out and cook in foil pouches with veg,herbs and wine.

I also like mixed seafood in a bechamel sauce that has a little gruyere melted in.Cheese and fish don't go tegether for me very often but it works there.

Fish tacos are also a big hit at my house.You can use anything from grilled to fried to frozen fish sticks for them.Add some cabbage,cilantro and onion and a little spicy mayo.Yum!

We often pan-sear fish...just rub with a little olive oil, season with S&P and a little lemon juice, and sear in medium-hot skillet. Don't over-cook it...it should just flake with a fork, and be opaque.

We also like it poached...season with S&P, put in skillet, lay a slice of lemon and a sprig of fresh rosemary or a sprinkle of thyme on top of each serving, pour a can of chicken broth in the skillet, cover and simmer till done as above.

It's also good oven-cooked in foil packets...put a piece of fish, S&P, slice of onion, a slice of lemon and a pat of butter in each packet. Bake in oven at 350 till done. How long depends on size of serving.

Acually, I love fish just about any way, as long as it is not over-cooked.

i like to take whole fish, stuff with thinly sliced veggies and fresh herbs, some seasonings like s&p, butter, lemon, or a vinegar (red wine, balsamic, etc.), and bake.

here's an old recipe that i've made many times with success: Baked Whole Trout stuffed with fennel, bok choy, and onions.

Nooooooo! You don't cook smoked salmon. You slice it thin and eat it. It can go on toast or on a bagel or on heavy germanic rye bread. It goes well with cream cheese or quark and red onions, sliced thin, and capers.

Ditto! Smoked salmon should never be "cooked". If you are looking for salmon recipes I got jillions. Is it salmon you want or just fish in general?

cheers guys I am definately going to try all those recipies....yum yum!! any recipies for salmon and other fish would b great Alix thanks....I have eaten smoked salmon fresh (not cooked) but i have only ever eaten it with prawns and salad, so as a starter really coz its a cold dish....I eat real hearty hot meals, live on Englands seaside coast so its kind of a necessity here ;) ooooh I have just been down to local supermarket (needed bread milk etc) sooo many people buying absolute CRAP!! Buy ingrediants and cook it yourself.. adds, what, 5minutes prep time to the cooking time AND it will cost u less in the long run as you'll have bits left for next days meal time!!! ARGH PPL!! :/

My favorite way with salmon is dill. The flavors go so good.

I love to take grouper or halibut and cut into 2" chunks and simmer them slowly (braise) in some Italian dressing. The vinegary taste goes away leaving a lemony tang, and all those beautiful spices.
