Crusted with mustard and sesame seeds and pan seared
Broiled with ginger and lime

If it's good salmon, always rare.

I have had Salmon patties in restaurants but never ventured to make them myself. I still prefer boiled salmon.

I like it pan seared, with a crispy skin and medium rare, with lots of sauteed scallions and a splash of terryaki sauce.

i place my salmon in a light vanilla, brown sugar & lightly-salted habanero pepper brine.

after about 30-45 min, i pat it dry with a paper towel and sear skin side up for about 4 minutes... then, throw it in the oven for another 10 min at 250 F. i let this sit in the oven until ready to eat with the oven door open.

meanwhile, i take about a 2 tablespoons of apricot preserves, a dash of teriyaki sauce, some fresh ginger, and about 1 tablespoon of butter with 1/4 cup seafood stock and whisk this around until it reduces a little. i drizzle a little on top and around the salmon.

i like my salmon cooked... all the way thru with NO pink.

an easy way to wow a group of dinner guests is to bake a filet "en croute" or in a crust. get some frozen puff pastry sheets. place the de-boned filet on a sheet, salt & pepper, etc.(dijon mustard, herbs, boursin cheese, or whatever). beat an egg to use as both glue and glaze. brush the bottom crust with egg. cover with a top crust. you can cut the whole thing into the shape of a fish and use something like a pastry tip to do scales. glaze with the egg wash and bake in a fairly hot oven. if it's a large filet, start in a hot oven until the pastry is puffed, then reduce to medium to finish cooking.

Salmon recipe

Here is one easy and nice way to cook salmon.
Take the salmonfilet and place them in a ... how do you say in english...heathproof glass or keramicbowl with lid.
Cover with sliced, raw onion (any kind).
Sprinkle with oil (I use soyoil), and dark soysauce. And a bit ground pepper.
Bake in oven on high heat in about 15 minutes (or to the samon no longer is translucent).

Eat either with boiled potatoes, butter and sourcream, or with rice and some vegetables with vinegar.

the next time i get some fresh salmon, i'm going to try chefjune's recipe for falafel crusted salmon filets, from the middle of this page: http://www.feastivals.com/cookbook.asp

otherwise, i like to make a compound herb butter, and bake the salmon with dollops of the butter on top. my favourite butter with salmon is blended with chopped fresh dill and basil.

Got Vodka?

Try some homemade gravlox.

http://www.messygourmet.com/creations/issue25.html

Make a sauce w heavy cream, butter, vodka, dill, add salmon chunks, serve over fettucinne.

Salmon Wellington with a creamy dill sauce, & roasted asparagus.

Pizza - cream cheese, dill, chunks of salmon, sun-dried tomatoes & garlic.

Salmon mousse stuffed in sliced cucumbers for an appy.

I love the taste of salmon, so I prepare it simply with lemon juice, dill or rosemary and freshly ground black pepper.
