1 side fresh salmon, boned but skin on 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 3 tablespoons good soy sauce 6 tablespoons good olive oil 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic Light charcoal briquettes in a grill and brush the grilling rack with oil to keep the salmon from sticking. While the grill is heating, lay the salmon skin side down on a cutting board and cut it crosswise into 4 equal pieces. Whisk together the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Drizzle half of the marinade onto the salmon and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Place the salmon skin side down on the hot grill; discard the marinade the fish was sitting in. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Turn carefully with a wide spatula and grill for another 4 to 5 minutes. The salmon will be slightly raw in the center, but don't worry; it will keep cooking as it sits. Transfer the fish to a flat plate, skin side down, and spoon the reserved marinade on top. Allow the fish to rest for 10 minutes. Remove the skin and serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

My favorite simple salmon recipe is citrus salmon in parchment! It's an easy and healthy dish that tastes like summer but can be made any time of the year in the oven! Lightly oil both sides of salmon w/olive oil, sprinkle lightly w/lemon pepper, and place skin side down on a piece of parchment paper (big enough to wrap around fish loosely like an envelope. Place sliced lemon, lime or oranges and a bit of dill on top of salmon. Wrap loosely and bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes or until fish is flakey. ENJOY!

Salmon Tacos for sure! Simply pour about 1/3 cup of Worcestershire sauce over salmon and back for ~20 minutes at 425 in the oven or toaster oven (we use tin foil underneath because it the Worcestershire sauce will carmelize and burn - but it leaves a nice smokey flavor on the salmon). We use store bought taco shells - toast them quickly and the immeadiately put extra sharp cheddar cheese on the bottom so it melts and helps keep the bottom from cracking open when you bite it. THEN you MUST add this jamaician sauce called Pickapeppa sauce - it's not too spicy but gives the perfect kick. I enjoy a healthy dose of the Pickapeppa here - it goes well with most fish but particularly with salmon. We use nonfat plain yogurt in place of sour cream then add lettuce, tomato and avocado. Put it all together and you have a surprisingly simple but totally delicious taco. Many doubters have been invited to our family taco night and all of them ask for the recipe afterwards (or another invitation to dinner). Enjoy!

I like to mix miso paste with soy sauce and wasabi and marinate my salmon for 3-4 hours and bake or grill. It's super easy and delicious!

Green curry salmon with kiwi salsa - spread green curry paste on salmon and pan fry. Make the kiwi salsa with chopped kiwis, red onion, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, and lime juice. It's great! http://crankingkitchen.wordpress.com/2012/01/25/green-curry-salmon-with-kiwi-salsa/

Drizzle it with a little salt and olive oil, sprinkle some chopped fresh rosemary over the top, and put it on a cedar plank in a smoker for 30-45 minutes. Hands down, best salmon I've ever eaten.

Slice sashimi quality salmon very thinly. Drizzle each serving with about 1/4 teaspoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce, adding more as desired. Sprinkle sesame seeds and chives over fish and serve immediately.

Salmon doesn't need much, so to the purist, this "simple but hefty" preparation may seem overdone. But fear not, it is delicious and does not take away from the tastiest fish on the market. First, chop up some pistachios and toss them in olive oil and fresh ground pepper. Next, coat the flesh side of the filet with Dijon mustard and top with the pistachio mixture. Throw it in the oven until it's perfectly flaky (about 30 minutes at 350). See recipe here: http://paleocave.blogspot.com/2010/05/pistachio-crusted-salmon.html

Cream the cheese in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment until just smooth. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, dill, horseradish, salt and pepper, and mix. Add the smoked salmon and mix well. Chill and serve with crudites and/or crackers.

Super easy and super delicious. What you need: 2-4 Filets of Responsibly Farmed Raised Salmon. What type depends on what is your favorite. I like Atlantic Salmon. I also like thick filets. 1 can of coconut milk, 1 stick of lemongrass, 1 lime, 1 small bunch of cilantro, 1 bunch of watercress, 1 jalapeño (optional), Pinch of salt, pepper, and dried tarragon. Find yourself a deep pan (the size really depends on two things: How many salmon filets you have and how big they are! In this deep dish add the can of coconut milk. It can be light coconut milk if you would like to reduce fat. Slice a stick of lemongrass. Slice the stick sideways. Cut and squeeze juice from 1 juicy lime into the coconut milk. You can easily slice the lime in four pieces or more. Also throw in the lime pieces when you are done squeezing it's juices out! Cut a small bunch of cilantro sprinkle around and stir in the coconut milk. Optional: Thinly slice 1 jalapeño. Discard seeds. Place salmon fliets skin down in coconut milk. Spinkle tops with a pinch of salt, pepper, and tarragon leaves. Place in oven. The tempature of the oven should be 350. Again, depending on how thick the filets are and how you like your salmon cooked depends on how long you cook it for. 15-20 minutes is the "norm". Place cooked salmon on top of watercress and drizzle the coconut milk on top. I like to scoop the cilantro/lemongrass/lime chucks and put them on the salmon as well for a "look". Eat and enjoy!

I love simple broiled salmon filet, with crispy skin. Start by removing the scales by scraping against the direction of the scales with a spoon. Then drizzle both sides with olive oil and generously salt and pepper. Place the filet skin side up on a foil lined broiling pan and broil 4 inches from the broiler till the skin is dark, bubbled, and crispy, and the meat is cooked by still tender. I serve this with a dill sauce made up of fresh dill, Greek yogurt, butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper. The skins crisps up like bacon and, since you've remove the scales, is totally edible and yummy!

Fish tacos: Grill, saute, or bake salmon cutlet. Shred green cabbage, mix with lime juice. Chop 1 chipotle pepper (canned in adobo sauce) and mix with mayonnaise to taste. Heat corn tortillas directly over gas burner, and top with the salmon, cabbage, chipotle mayo, and other favorite taco toppings (black beans, pico de gallo, avocadoes all work well here)!

My favorite recipe for salmon is simple and tasty. I prefer a line caught salmon. Plank smoked salmon with molasses glaze. Soak a cedar or other wood plank for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, marinate your salmon with: - grated ginger - soy sauce - molasses Heat plank and salmon in a closed 300 degree grill over flames until the salmon feels a bit solid to the touch. Remove salmon and plate with some edamame and brown rice. Best when washed down with sake. Enjoy!

I came across a great recipe when I was home at my parent's place this holiday. For a sweet and enriching experience try salmon with a mango and avocado salsa on top. Seasoning mix for the salmon: 1 tablespoon paprika 2 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) 3/4 teaspoon white pepper 3/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano "Heat large cast iron skillet over very high heat until it is beyond the smoking stage. Combine seasoning mix in a small bowl. Rub each fillet with olive oil then sprinkle seasoning mix generously and evenly on both sides of the fillets. Place in hot skillet. The fillets can also be grilled with this recipe on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes on each side." Mango and avocado salsa recipe: 1 mango, cubed 1 avocado, cubed 1/4 cup red onion, diced 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 2 tablespoons lime juice 1/2 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt This recipe took me about 20 minutes to make and my entire family was in love with it. All of these ingredients can be found at Whole Foods and it makes for an easy and tasteful dish.

We enjoy poached salmon and serve it with fresh steamed spinach, brie cheese and slices of a crusty baguette. To poach the salmon, I take 3 cups of water, 1 1/4 cups dry vermouth, 6 whole peppercorns and bring to just below boiling. Turn down the heat to a simmer, add about a tsp of salt and up to 4 salmon filets. Make sure that the poaching liquid covers the salmon. Poach until salmon is cooked through, about 9 minutes per inch thickness. Can be served warm or cold. Spread Brie cheese on a baguette slice, add some steamed spinach and the salmon for a tasty, but light repast.

My favorite salmon is with a tasty soy-mustard glaze recipe that I've adapted from America's Test Kitchen, then created a "fried" rice with bok choy and carrots to accompany. The recipe is on my blog here with pictures: http://kitchenwithkate.blogspot.com/2012/08/make-meal-soy-mustard-glazed-salmon.html Includes the nutritional information and WW points!

My favorite easy salmon recipe is to simply add a tablespoon or so of barbeque sauce and salt and pepper and pop it in the oven until it is finished. A small amount of BBQ sauce goes a LONG way to adding lots of flavor! Another favorite, when I was trying to branch out a bit, was salmon baked in the oven with Whole Foods tequila limesalsa... recipe here: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/tequila-lime-salmon . It was delicious ! Funny- it was actually baked on March 31, which is my birthday and also the day that this contest ends :)

I like to stuff salmon with spinach and cream cheese. Just wilt the spinach, combine with some cream cheese and a dash of nutmeg, cut a slit down each slamon fillet, fill with the cream cheese mixture, sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper, and press in some breadcrumbs mixed with a bit of melted butter and parmesan cheese, bake at 450 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. So tasty!
