Easy Salmon Recipes
Honey-Mustard-Glazed Salmon Steaks
Any time a novice cook asks Jamie Bissonnette for a simple recipe, he gives them this soy-honey-mustard sauce. It's delicious on the salmon here, but he also recommends spreading it on chicken wings or pork chops before grilling.
Chipotle-Rubbed Salmon Tacos
These tacos are a great way to eat heart-healthy salmon; Deborah Schneider, a huge advocate of cooking with sustainable fish, prefers wild Alaskan salmon. She tops the fish with crunchy cabbage—a traditional taco garnish that has all kinds of vitamins and minerals, like vitamins A and C and calcium. The tangy apple-cucumber salsa is juicy, crisp and full of fiber.
Salmon and Cherry Tomato Skewers with Rosemary Vinaigrette
Cook these simple salmon-and-tomato kebabs on skewers or even on sturdy rosemary sprigs.
Grilled Mustard-Herb Salmon
This classic recipe is easy to make and just as healthy as it is delicious.
Roast Salmon with Lemony Basil Sauce
No bowls, boards or even knives are required for this recipe. While chef Renee Erickson of Boat Street Cafe in Seattle roasts salmon fillets, she prepares her vibrant basil sauce entirely in a blender–she even makes extra to drizzle over canned sardines for lunch the next day.
Grilled Salmon with Melted Tomatoes
Jalapenos not only garnish this sweet-smoky grilled salmon but also infuse the oil used to saute the tomatoes.
Arugula and Pea Shoot Salad with Smoked Salmon
It's awfully hard to slice vegetables thinly and consistently using a knife. That's why chefs use a mandoline for perfect slices of celery root or other hard vegetables, as in this recipe. You don't need an expensive stainless-steel model, the plastic ones work very well.
Smoked Salmon and Chopped Egg Sandwiches
This classic smoked salmon and chopped egg sandwich is exactly what we need after a long night out.
Basil Baked Salmon with Cherry Tomato Salad
This basil sauce is similar to a pesto, but without the cheese. If you have prepared pesto, you can substitute it for the fresh version.
7-Minute Salmon Caviar Sushi Bites
This is an inexpensive, easy, playful take on a sushi roll. It makes a terrific party snack.
Easy Scallion Mayonnaise Baked Salmon
Think of this mayonnaise as a fast, refrigerator-ready version of aioli.
