My husband despises canned salmon, but loves the "real thing". We grill it, pan sear, or poach...all are good. For grilling or pan searing, he rubs a little olive oil into it, seasons with salt and pepper, and it's good to go. He puts the skin side down, then flips it and lets the top cook just a minute.
I serve it with a very tasty sauce made with about a cup of Miracle Whip (you could use sour cream), a tbl of Worchestershire Sauce, a tbl of lemon juice, tsp of dill weed, and horseradish to taste.

Here's my recipe for poached salmon (or other fish).

1-1/2 cups fish stock or clam juice
1-1/2 cups dry white wine (I used Chardonay)
6 sprigs of fresh rosemary
thinly sliced lemons
fresh ground pepper

Bring liquids to a boil in large skillet, add rosemary, and simmer for 5 minutes. Lay in the Salmon, skin side down, arrange sliced lemons on top of the fish, grind pepper to taste over the top, cover with lid and simmer about 10 minutes. Remove and plate salmon and spoon a bit of the broth over the top. Garnish with rosemary sprigs.

Mushroom Ragout

2 pints fresh button mushrooms, sliced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbl olive oil
2 tbl butter
4 tbl flour
3/4 cup fish stock
3/4 cup white wine
3/4 cup milk
2 oz reduced fat cream cheese
salt, pepper

Saute mushrooms and garlic in olive oil until mushrooms are lightly browned and all liquid is absorbed. Add the butter to pan, melt, and stir in flour. Stir in liquids and bring to a boil. Stir and simmer until thickened. Add cream cheese and stir till melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

simple to broil filets with curry or thai peanut sauce on it ...very tasty. serve with couscous cooked with a touch of cinnimon and green veggies like peas, snap peas, zucchini, etc.

I've had this once before and enjoyed it..Maybe you might like it as well.
I don't know what herbs and spices you like so I hope this fits the bill.
Salmon with onion cream
1-1/2 lbs. salmon fillets
salt, freshly ground black pepper and ground cumin
1-1/2lbs. sweet onions, yellow work fine
1/2-tea. cumin powder
1/2-c. white wine
1-c. cream
salt and white pepper, I just used ground black
rub the salmon with the evoo, then sprinkle the salmon with salt,pepper and ground cumin and let marinate for about an hour at room temp. Peel the onion, then cut in half the long way. Next slice along the grain lines into thin slices. In large skillet on low heat cook the onions in the evoo til soft., then cook over low heat covered, stir every now tha then. Add the cumin and wine. Boil the mix til liquid reduces to about a 1/4 cup/ Add the cream and let simmer til thick enough to coat a spoon. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set sauce aside while you bake salmon. Preheat oven to 450. Bake salmon for 10 min per inch of thickness. Transfer to high sided serving dish or platter pour on hot onion sauce and serve.
Dj likes a baked potato with this and even spoons a little of the sauce over it as well.
makes 4 servings

I think it's really awesome done up with a slight Asian flare. I like to quickly pan sear salmon fillets, lay them on a bed of green onions (scallions) that have been blanched for 30-60 seconds (plung them in cold water afterwards to stop the cooking process) drizzled with a little sesame oil and either soy, sweet chilli sauce or some finely diced (and quickly pan fried) garlic and lemon grass.

I marinate the salmon in lime juice with crushed garlic, after 30 minutes or so I sprinkle lime pepper or lemon thyme on top, add a bit of butter, sliced onion if I have one, seal the foil into a packet and bake. I love the subtle blending of the flavors and they don't mask the salmon flavor!

my fave salmon recipe is one best suited for summer grilling, so save this one for later:

place salmon filet skin-side-down on heavy duty aluminum foil, sprinkle generously with garam masala (it's a mix of spices particular to indian cooking that just does **magical** things on salmon) and minced garlic, put red onion and fresh pineapple each cut into long thin slices on top, add a couple small butter pats and a splash of pink wine (not sticky-sweet white zin, dry blush wines are super with salmon), seal up your foil packet and toss on the grill or in the oven. sorry no measurements, i just adjust this to fit the size filet i'm cooking at the time.
I love cooking with wine...sometimes I even put it in the food... fireweaver.wordpress.com
