There must have been some massive oversight. Until this year, there was a National Fluffernutter Day, a National Cherries Jubilee Day, even a National Fried Scallop Day, but there was no day celebrating buttery, delicious salmon. Now, thankfully, the mistake has been corrected. October 8 is officially National Salmon Day thanks to Chicken of the Sea, which proposed the holiday. Here, ten recipes to celebrate America’s favorite fish.
1. Triple-Mustard Salmon
For a triple hit of mustard, coat salmon with Dijon mustard amped up with dry mustard, then dip the fillets into mustard seeds for a terrific crust.
2. Salmon-and-Spinach Cakes
These delicious fish cakes are served with a spicy dill mayo.
