Simple Salmon Supper

The first fish I folded into my cooking repertoire was farm-raised salmon. Not surprising, right? Lots of people start that way because it’s easy to prepare, versatile and affordable. I baked it with soy sauce and brown sugar, I glazed it with maple syrup, I coated it with mustard or I grilled it with veggies. Though the list of fish I cook with is far longer these days, I still reach for salmon for a quick, easy and delicious dinner.

Marinade: 1/4 cup grade B maple syrup; 2 TBL dijon mustard; 2 TBL soy sauce; 4 scallions sliced thinly; pepper and salt to taste. Whisk marinade ingredients together. Salmon: Place a large, boneless salmon fillet in a glass dish or bowl and spread marinade over the salmon. Let rest in the refrigerator for up to an hour. Place salmon in a rimmed and oiled baking sheet and pour marinade over the salmon. Bake in a pre-heated oven on the middle rack at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. For the last two minutes, turn on the broiler to caramelize the marinade. After taking the salmon out of the oven, sprinkle the fillet with chopped chives. Serve the salmon with a green salad and steamed asparagus.

Elyssa Albert says …

Salmon-Blueberry Spinach Salad: The easiest (and healthiest) salmon recipe I came up with: Place salmon in an oven dish/pan, coat with EVOO, salt, pepper, and a generous amount of garlic powder. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes. Add salmon to a bed of spinach, top with lots of fresh blueberries. Dress with EVOO & lemon juice if desired (but usually I don't even need a dressing!).

Megan Woodward says …

One of my favorite simple salmon recipes is a Broiled Miso Salmon. I spray a non stick pan and pre-heat te broiler. I then combine about 3 tablespoons of white miso paste, a few dashes of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger, and about 2 tablespoons of garlic chili sauce. I spread this mixture over the salmon fillets (typically about 1.5lbs, 3 servings) and broil for about 9-12 minutes depending on thickness. I love the sweet and salty combination, such an easy dinner! I usually serve it with a side of steamed veggies and brown rice.

erin says …

salmon fillet sandwich: squirt some lemon juice and sprinkle some pepper over raw salmon fillet and grill to personal preference. dress with some lettuce, tomato, and mayo on a fresh bun of your choice. sides: potato salad and home made chips are great additions to this yummy sandwich!

Tina Goodman says …

My salmon recipe is so easy my sons make it for dinner! I start with responsibly farmed salmon, I spray a pan with non stick spray and heat it up. Once heated I add my salmon fillets, I spread a little honey on top of each one, I squeeze one lime, add soy sauce, top it all with some cilantro sprigs and cover the pan and lower the heat. In about 12 minutes I have the most amazing tasting salmon which I enjoy over a plate of rice and steamed broccoli. How easy is that?

Shannon O. says …

With good fish, the best preparation is usually a simple one. A squirt of lemon, some fresh herbs, and a soaked cedar plank are all you really need to make salmon shine.

Ashlea Green says …

One of my favorite Salmon Simple Recipes is Jamie Oliver inspired. Salmon Filet served over Couscous. You can find the exact methods & ingredients on his website. It's healthy & delicious - definitely fits in with Whole Foods' Style! Natural yogurt, fresh lemon juice, coriander, asparagus, sea salt, blackened pepper, olive oil, 2 tomatoes, red chili, and courgette! All natural ingredients that can be found at Whole Foods. All the ingredients gets mixed in the couscous that is topped with the Salmon Fillet, drizzle with yogurt! Yum! Healthy & Natural!

Stephanie says …

Honey mustard salmon is my favorite. Preheat oven to 400. Melt 1tbs butter with 1tbs brown sugar. Mix in 1tbs honey, 2tbs Dijon mustard, and 1tbs soy sauce. Heat an oven proof skillet (I use a grill pan) spray with cooking spray. Place about 1lb salmon skin side up in the pan for about 4 minutes. Flip onto skin side and brush with sauce mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes. I usually baste the fish about 2-3 times with the remaining sauce.

Katie Allen says …

I bake salmon filets at 400 for 12 minutes with olive oil, sea salt, lemon zest, and the juice of half a lemon. Simple but so tasty!

Arlene Cohen says …

Take parchment paper or tin foil, place a teaspoon of brown sugar under the Salmon and wrap up your Whole Foods fine Salmon with a few julienne strips of red bell paper and onion. Drizzle with Balsomic Vinegar and Olive Oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper,minced garlic if you so desire. . Place a couple of thin lemon slices on top of Salmon. Bake in 425 degree oven for 15 min or until Salmon is flakey and ingredients have meshed together

Suzi B says …

Salmon really is a versatile dish! My favorite new recipe: prepare a baking sheet with foil & lightly coat with organic olive oil non-stick spray. On one side of the baking sheet, place 3-4 salmon filets & coat with 1-2 tbsp of olive oil, followed by 1-2 tbsp of WF's blackened Cajun seasoning. The other side of the baking sheet is reserved for asparagus. Lightly coat with organic olive oil spray & sprinkle garlic powder on each stalk. Now place in the oven (345 deg F) for 20-30 minutes. Asparagus may cook sooner, make sure to watch for tenderness preference. When everything is cooked, coat asparagus with about 1 tbsp of balsamic vinaigrette dressing & voila! Dinner is served:). If that's not filling enough, sometimes I add a third dish: quinoa with sauteed bell peppers & garlic... In olive oil.

kolpin says …

I'm a diehard gravlax fan, while my boyfriend makes a mean teryaki smoked salmon with wood chips in our grill. I cover salmon with 2 parts brown sugar to 1 part kosher salt, smother it in sprigs of dill and the zest of one lime, wrap it in 3 layers of saran wrap and a ziploc, put it in a glass dish, weigh it down with soup cans, and wait! Waiting 3 days is the hardest part!! I'll flip it once a day and drain the liquid, but that's it. so easy and so much cheaper than buying lox at $20 a pound.

Carlyn Bromann says …

Place salmon on piece of heavy duty foil; cover fish with teriyaki sauce; seal foil and place on hot grill for 15-20 minutes. Toss diced potatoes, onions and peppers in olive oil. Sprinkle with oregano, salt and pepper.. Seal vegetable mixture in separate piece of heavy duty foil and grill at the same time that the salmon is cooking. Makes a great Mom's Day or Dad's Day dinner!

Sara B says …

Grilled salmon with fresh herbs and a touch of Cajun spice saute with a medley of broccoli, mushrooms, onions, and red peppers strips. Quick and easy after a long day at the office

Egyptian Dukkah Crusted Salmon Recipe You will need the following ingredients to feed three people: 1 lb salmon with the skin still on 1 tablespoon of coconut oil Garlic Powder Paprika Black Pepper Olive Oil Dukkah (Buy from Trader Joes, Amazon or make your own) Juice of one lemon Put one tablespoon of coconut oil in a cast iron skillet and put it on a high heat. Coconut oil really is ideal for this recipe as it tolerates high temperatures very well. While the coconut oil is heating, pat both sides of the the salmon dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle the underside of the salmon skin with a generous amount of garlic powder, paprika and freshly cracked black pepper. If you have a fish or salmon spice blend, you could use this too. Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees. Once the oil is hot, add the salmon to the cast iron skillet and cook on a high heat for five to eight minutes, or until the underside is looks crisp. Remove the cast iron skillet from the heat and squeeze the lemon over the fish. Then cover the top of your salmon with the dukkah nut blend and put into the oven for five minutes.

Ann S. Ruth says …

My favorite salmon recipe uses four aluminum foil packets for four salmon fillets. I think the steaming process seals in the juices and the flavors. I slice some onions and carrots ( or any vegetable you may have available) on each top with one half teaspoon grated ginger, one half tablespoon of white vinegar and a half teaspoon of Asian sesame oil over each packet. Seal the packets leaving room for heat circulation inside. Bake approximately 20 minutes on a cookie sheet at 450 degrees. They can also be put in a covered grill for approximately 16 minutes.

Megan M says …

I love to use salmon in Asian salads. Take a whole filet, season it with salt, pepper, sesame oil, and gochujang (Korean chili paste) and bake it at 350 for about 15 minutes. Then I flake it into a mix of thinly sliced kale, red peppers, carrots, green onions, and edamame. Stir it all together with a dressing of soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, gochujang and sesame seeds, and you have yourself a flavorful salad!

Wiley Kaminski says …

Simple Salmon: My easy, go-to salmon recipe is to take a couple of salmon filets and put them on a microwave-safe plate, skin-down. Top with desired blend of brown sugar, crushed garlic, soy sauce and grated fresh ginger. I sometimes also include chopped green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Then, cover with plastic wrap and let marinate for up to 15 minutes. Cook on high 6 minutes (leave plastic wrap on), until no longer translucent... and voila! Serve with lightly-sauteed snow peas, jasmine rice, and mandarin oranges for a balanced meal. Perfect for nights when you are running late but still want to eat healthily, and this is a huge hit every time I prepare it for our family.

Leah says …

4 TBSP Mayo, 1 TBSP green relish, a squeeze of lemon juice and salt & pepper to taste - mix together and spread on top of the salmon filet. Cook in the oven for 20min at 375 F. Simple and Delish!

Rosie says …

Salmon in phyllo! If you thaw phyllo in the refrigerator, and soften a little butter, it is very fast & easy and yummy. *Take a sheet of phyllo, put a little butter on it. *Place another sheet on top it. *Put salmon on parchment with a dab of good creamed horseradish, salt & pepper to taste. *Wrap up. *Brush with beaten egg *Bake about 10 min at 425 degrees *Enjoy!!!

Kay says …

I make a simple but delicious sesame crusted whole salmon stuffed with greens and veggies, roasted with lots of lemon juice, ginger & a little olive oil. So good, so acceptable for a simple or fancy dinner.

Christine Koch says …

Salsa Salmon. Choose a salsa you like and mix with cream cheese (8 oz-12oz cream cheese), Salsa size varies. Mix both together. Then slowly melt cream cheese in salsa. You'll need to cut cream cheese into small chunks to help melt process (smaller the better). Once melted, wait for the mix to be luke warm then put thin layer underneath salmon on heavy aluminum foil (or tray) and use rest to cover salmon so no flesh is shown. Close foil on top or cover with lid. Pre-heat and cook at 350 for about an hour.

I always grill my salmon over a bed of thin sliced lemons.

Salmon and Puff Pastry - This recipe can be made for 1 or more. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Take a 5oz piece of salmon. Place it on a baking sheet. Drizzle the salmon with a little olive oil and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Also on the baking sheet, place a piece of puff pastry cut a little larger than your salmon. Place the baking sheet in the over and cook for 10min. Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Place the puff pastry on a plate. Slather it with your favorite pesto sauce (homemade or store bought). Place 1-2 slices of tomato on top of the pesto. Then top the whole thing with the salmon. Looks very elegant, actually very easy, and it tastes great!

Vicki Ho says …

I grate ginger over the salmon, brush on teriaki-wasabi glaze, and bake.

Erin Bricker says …

A healthy salad with fresh salmon, spinach leaves, avacado, sliced tomatoes, bee pollin, soy bacon bits, home made crutons, & shredded cheese. And our home made lemon/lime, olive oil and agave dressing! So healthy and refreshing!

Danielle says …

Blackened salmon is delicious and versatile and one cooking preparation turns into three unique and satiating meals! Rub 1 pound salmon fillet with skin with your favorite blackening space or make your own (2 tbl each salt, sugar and paprika; 1 tbl each pepper, cayenne, thyme and oregano). Pour on a little olive oil and lay thinly sliced lemon on top. Roast in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until cooked as desired. Serve roasted with quinoa and kale salad. Cooked salmon can also be served in tacos! Shred into corn tortillas with your favorite toppings and serve with cabbage slaw and pinto beans and brown rice. Any leftovers can be turned into salmon salad by mixing with greek yogurt, red onion, capers, lemon juice and parsley – serve over salad or on an open faced sandwich. Yum!

Full recipe at http://michaels-killer-recipes.blogspot.com: PNW Wild Alaska Salmon, the right way! Ok everyone! It's that time again- time for salmon season. The time of year that we in the PNW (Pacific NorthWest) start buying that fish fresh again, and finding great new recipes for it! However, now and again you buy something special and Copper River salmon is that "something special." It has a very short fishing season (1 or 2 weeks only), and the fish has distinctively deep red flesh, and tastes fatty even though it's not. It cooks up firm, and juicy, provided you don't leave it exposed to the broiler or the grill too long. If you don't cook salmon often, practice on a lesser piece of salmon first, and then plan to undercook the Copper River salmon just a touch. This spring, I went with something simple, truly PNW, easy to repeat, and a HUGE crowd-pleaser every time I serve this. You just can't miss with this... and so, I now share it with you. My marinade is really simple, takes very little time to put together, and keeps you from buying those high-sodium sauces on the ends of the aisles at every store around! This is healthier, tasty, and hard to screw up! It's sweet, savory, salty, it's worth it! PNW Teriyaki Salmon Prep time: 45 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes (8 minutes on the heat, 4-5 minutes resting) Mandatory Ingredients: 1/2 C Yoshida's Teriyaki marinade (or similar THICK teriyaki) 1/4 C Teriyaki, thin sauce style (even lite teriyaki would work here) 1 Smashed and chopped garlic clove 1/4 C Chopped ginger, or 3 T grated ginger (NO POWDER STUFF!) 2 T Brown sugar 1 Salmon filet Mandatory ingredients Optional Ingredients: 1/4 C Pineapple juice Crushed red pepper to taste 1 t Lemon zest 1 T Chopped chives In glass or plastic bowl, mix the top 4 mandatory ingredients. IF YOU WISH, add any of the top 3 optional ingredients. Dry salmon, and place SKIN-SIDE DOWN in a Pyrex dish or on a foil-lined baking sheet. Pour 1/2 of your sauce over the salmon, and place salmon in fridge for 1/2 hour, minimum. Pour the leftover sauce into a small sauce pan, and simmer to reduce by 1/2. Allow to cool, and reserve for people to pour on their salmon at their plates. Pull salmon from fridge, sprinkle with brown sugar, and allow to sit on counter for about 15 minutes to warm up a bit. Broil or grill your salmon for no longer than 8 minutes! Remove from heat, and let sit for 4-5 minutes for carryover cooking to take your salmon to perfection! It will be fully cooked from the top, and as you get closer to the skin (on the bottom), nearly creamy medium-rare that is in no way under cooked, trust me on this! As you plate, offer the reduced marinade for your best-est of friends and family to pour on their individual pieces... sprinkle some chopped chives on there too!

Turn Sunday Night's Salmon Feast into an easy Monday meal with Salmon Quinoa Cakes. In a food processor combine 5-6 green onions (ends trimmed) with a large handful of cilantro and pulse. Add salt and pepper and your favorite seasoning blend. Add 1 cup of cooked quinoa (I usually use leftovers so has some veggies in it) pulse until combined then add 16-24 oz of cooked salmon and pulse to desired consistency. Form into patties and brown in oil. Top with a fresh diced tomato basil relish! Enjoy!

Lara Harris says …

Salmon with lemon, capers, a little veggie broth over whole wheat orzo. So yummy and simple.

Tiffany says …

I love salmon! My absolute favorite is sockeye salmon. When it comes to cooking salmon, I prefer using simple ingredients and pan sear it to get that nice brown color and caramelized outer. The seasoning is also fairly simple, I like to use coconut oil and some himalayan pink salt. Seriously, it sounds really really simple but I like simple and it tastes good! I also like stuffed salmon once in a while. Stuff them with goat cheese and spinach.

Rose says …

Salmon cakes. They are totally different when you make your own with fresh salmon, and fast & easy, too. Rough chop salmon, some onion, a small amount of fresh herb such as cilantro, parsley, thyme, mix with one egg, and some lemon juice, salt and freshly cracked pepper. Pat into patties just enough so they will hold together. Saute in a small amount of oil (whatever is your fav) with the cover on. Flip when brown on the bottom and cook until done.

Rosie says …

Horseradish Salmon Burgers. Pulse in the food processor skinless salmon, scallions, bread crumbs, egg, prepared horseradish, salt. Make into patties and cook in a small amount of oil with the top on the pan, about 7 min. per side. Serve with a nice bun, mayo, lettuce and thinly sliced onion.

Sarah says …

My simple salmon supper recipe is great for both the budget conscious (can use either sustainable canned or fresh salmon) and those who may not "like" to eat a salmon filet (because the salmon is flaked throughout the recipe). Here is my Thai inspired Salmon Rice: You'll need 1 cup cooked rice (warm). In a skillet, poach 1/2 pound salmon in water to cover, with 1 scallion, some parsley and some whole peppercorns - 5-9 minutes until just cooked. Let cool then remove skin. Flake with fork. Meanwhile, toast 1/4 cup pignoles, and place in large bowl with 1/4 cup dried currants, zest and 2TBSP juice of one lime, 3TBSP olive oil, S&P to taste. Add flaked salmon and rice - stir to mix. Then gently blend in 1/2 cup basil (chiffonade) and top with Furikake! Alternatively, you can roast salmon at 350 for 10 mins., or use 1 can salmon, flaked. Serves 6 quickly and deliciously!!

Salmon salad with cream cheese dressing-- Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Cook in a skillet with cooking spray for 2-3 min on each side, depending on size of filet and desired doneness. Remove from pan and let stand and cool. Assemble salad with: 2 cups mixed greens; 1/4 c. chopped cucumber; 1 Tbsp. capers; 1 lg. hard boiled egg, chopped; and as much flaked salmon as you like! Top with cream cheese dressing (recipe below). A great quick meal--if you cook the salmon, make the dressing, and hard boil the eggs in advance--it is just assemble and eat. You could also top with some crumbled bagel chips if you need the crunch and really want to mimic the 'lox and bagel' feel. Cream Cheese dressing: 1/4 c. 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened; 1/4 c., whole milk; 1/2 tsp. garlic, grated; 2 tbsp. scallions, finely chopped; juice of a quarter or a lemon; and salt and pepper to taste. Stir cream cheese until smooth. Mix in lemon juice. Drizzle the milk, stirring as you pour (use less milk if you want a thicker dressing). Stir in the garlic, scallions, salt and pepper.

Recipe for Curried Salmon Fillet: I make a curry salmon that my family loves. You can cook it by broiling or in-foil with the same preparation, depending on closely you want to watch it. Prep: 1.5 - 2 lbs Salmon fillet, skin on, but well-scaled. Ask your fishmonger for a mostly uniform thick fillet so it cooks evenly; I ask for a fillet cut near the head to avoid the tail portion where it thins out. If the market hasn't done so, use a tweezers to pull any remaining bones along the center length of the fillet. Rinse and dry the fillet. Mix together the following in a small bowl: About 1/3 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons Bragg’s soy, 1 tablespoon curry powder, several cloves of crushed or finely minced garlic. Bragg’s works better than Asian soy or tamari. If you like a little more kick, add a pinch or two of ground cayenne. For broiling: Lay the salmon skin down in tray that you make from thick aluminum foil, to keep in the curry mixture, and put this on a study baking sheet to stay flat. Slice cross-cuts across the fillet about half depth. Pour the curry slurry over the top and work it into the cut crevasses with your fingers. Once done, flip it over so that the skin is up and just rub the skin so it has a thin layer of the oil on it. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. Put into the broiler with the skin up and cook for about 5 – 7 minutes until the skin starts to crisp and bubble. Remove it from the oven and pull the skin off. (Not to gross out, but we usually eat the crispy cooked skin while hanging out in the kitchen.) You will see the “grey stuff” underneath still on the fish. Use a knife to scrape and remove the grey from the surface. This has a strong, unpleasant taste and I like to remove it before serving. Put it back under the broiler for a minute or two if that side is still uncooked. Then bring it out again and turn the fillet over to cook the cross-cut side. Finish cooking for about 5 minutes depending on the thickness and you will have a result that is perfectly cooked in the center with a slight crispness to the top. We serve over rice or garlic mashed potatoes and pour the cooking liquid over it. For Cooking In-Foil: Place the fish skin down in a tray made from thick foil and hand crimp another piece of foil lengthwise along one edge so it can be folded over to seal the fish in a pouch before cooking. Put this foil tray on a baking sheet or oven dish for stability. Pour the curry mixture over the fish and use a spoon or hand to make sure it’s completely covered on top. Then bring the foil over it and seal the edges to make the pouch, making sure the foil isn’t touching the top surface of the fillet. Let sit for about 15 minutes to come closer to room temp and then put the tray in a 325 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes depending on thickness. Be careful opening the foil pack and check that the fish is cooked. If not, reseal and put back in for the necessary length of time. When ready, I slip a large spatula between the fillet and the skin at the bottom and lift out the fillet. I place it skin up on a transfer plate and scrape away the remaining grey stuff and skin before serving. We enjoy this over rice or garlic mashed potatoes and pour the cooking juices over for additional flavor.
