Savor the Salmon

SAVOR THE SALMON: 10 Great Ways to Use Salmon Fillets

Healthy, flavorful and ready in minutes, salmon is a great choice for a multitude of meals. Bored with a basic broil?  Try these 10 suggestions to elevate your salmon supper:

Simply Seared
Cook room-temperature seasoned salmon skin-side down in a cast iron pan with canola oil over a medium-heat burner until 3/4 of the fillet has lightened in color.  Flip and cook for one more minute and serve with your favorite sauce.

Top & Bake
Crust salmon with a blend of horseradish or mustard, panko breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and your choice of dried herbs. Bake in the oven at 350F until the fish is opaque and flaky.

Cooking in liquid just shy of boiling makes for a moist, tender fillet with more retained nutrients than other cooking methods.  Try poached salmon with dill, lemon, white wine and herbs in this recipe for Poached Salmon with Creamy Herb Sauce.

Succulently Steamed
An essential technique in Asian cooking, steaming fish is simple and healthy. Place the fillet on a ceramic plate in a steamer basket and cover with your favorite aromatic herbs – like ginger, garlic, and orange slices – or follow our Sesame-Ginger Steamed Salmon recipe.

Sheet Pan Magic
Arrange oil and lemon marinated salmon fillets with your favorite rough-chopped vegetables on a foil-lined sheet pan and broil 6 inches below the broiler for 6-10 minutes, until cooked through.  You get a whole meal with one recipe and cleanup is a breeze!

That’s A Wrap
Kraft’s Wrapped Salmon with Spinach & Feta is one of Pinterest’s biggest trending recipes for fall, and a fun way to change things up using Greek-style frozen phyllo dough.

Hasta la Pasta
Salmon adds meaty depth and some variety to pasta night.  Try it with a zesty, spicy, tomato-filled sauce in our Italian-inspired recipe for Skillet Salmon over Arrabbiata Pasta.

Walk the Plank
Grilling fresh salmon atop a wooden plank adds adds smoky, aromatic flavors. Use different food-safe varieties to change up the flavor, or in this Cedar Planked Salmon Recipe.

Make a Martini!
Would you believe our friends at Foley Fish like to mix things up by pan-frying their salmon with seasonings, butter, and vermouth? Cheers to that! Recipe>

Grillin’ & Chillin’
Coat with blackened seasoning, drizzle with olive oil, and grill on medium-high heat, skin-side first, about 5 minutes each side. Enjoy!
