Arrow Request for Best Salmon Recipes!

Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum so please excuse any ignorance I may have in regards to its etiquette.

Salmon is one of my favourite fish but I have only a limited number of tried and true recipes to rely on. This community is so friendly and knowledgeable I thought I'd try asking for a few recommendations. I'm willing to try most any combination of flavours but I would prefer that the salmon be cooked.

Any particularly great recipes for salmon will be sincerely appreciated!

Happy cooking!

I made this recipe a few nights back for teh first time, with Pink salmon fillets. It came out very tasty.

Ingredients:
Pink salmon filet, cut into 4 pieces
Salt
Pepper, Dried Basil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 450' F. Drizzle olive oil over the flesh side of the fillets and spread evenly over the meat. Season with salt, coarse-grind black pepper, and dried basil flakes. Place on a foil, or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Serve with baked sweet potatoes, butter, and steamed green beans, or asparagus.

This dish begs for a sauce, though I served it without one. The fish was wonderful. The basil complimented the natural salmon flavor, rather than overpowering it as lemon or tarragon might.

Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I don't have any recipes for cooked salmon (I hate cooked salmon), but I have a good recipe for gravad laks if you are interested. It's a lot like smoked salmon, but more delicate in flavour.

I like my salmon steaks cooked simple. Rub with olive oil, sprinkle sea salt and pepper, top with sliced onions and bake at 400 F for 15 minutes or so.

I usually boil some new (red) potatoes, fry up thinly sliced zucchini. Blue cheese dressing on a salad goes great with salmon.

Welcome to DC! I like my salmon with lots of fresh dill. But, when it is cherry season, I do this:

Stuffedpattypan,
here are several sauces you might try on your salmon. Pan fry,bake or broill your salmon then top with a cucumber sauce, Use 2 cups sour cream,1/2 Tab. finely chopped onion,I cucumber peeled,seeded and finely chopped salt and fresh ground pepper,1-1/2 Tab. fresh squeezed lemon juice and 1-2 tab. of the zest and dried dill to taste. Mix well and serve over the salmon.

Or how about a mustard sauce 2 tab. prepared mustard,2 tab. Dijon, 2 tab. brown sugar,2 Tab. vinegar 1/2 cup dill weed, 1 cup evoo.Place both mustards,sugar,vinegar and dill weed in blender, add evoo slowly mix til mixture is thickened and well blended.

Pan fried in butter and lemon juice, simple!

Marinated in teriyaki sauce and pan-fried.

I reserve oven baking for whole salmon, pack the inside with sliced onions, lemons and brown sugar. seal with foil and bake.

Place in a baking dish and dallop with butter then sprinkle fresh chopped dill,capers and rindless lemon slices. Cover and bake at 350 until firm.

Hollow out a sourdough round and generously butter with a compound butter. Chunk some salmon,shrimp,scallops (whatever you like) and 1/2 the bread you removed crumbed. season and add a little melted butter.
pack the round and replace the lid. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes
and then slice like a pie.

Cover with potatoe slices (very thin) and pan fry.
