Salmon is, of course, delicious simply cooked, especially when it’s fresh and wild-caught, but it also works well with bold spices and deep earthy flavors. Here are 11 things to do with this incredibly versatile fish.
1. Cook the whole side. If you’re serving a crowd, you can grill or roast a whole side of salmon. Season it with salt and pepper, and serve with a lemon-yogurt sauce. Or try something more exciting: Coat the fillet in a tandoori marinade, rub it with a spicy paste or serve it with melted tomatoes and jalapeños.
