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.

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!).

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
