Succulent Salmon Recipes

Salmon is a go-to ingredient when it comes to cooking weeknight dinners, fast. Of course, we love it for the other meals of the day too — smoked salmon is a must for brunch! And with so many ways to prepare it, you can have salmon on the menu every week.

One reason salmon is so loved, is that its mild flavor and meaty texture make it perfect for all sorts of preparations. From baking with a simple seasoning, to adding to soups, to transforming leftovers into amazing creations, there’s almost no end to the ways you can prepare salmon.

Salmon is available fresh or frozen, responsibly-farmed or wild-caught. The main types of salmon you’ll see at the store are sockeye, Coho and king, and the color can vary from light peach-colored to very dark pink. Each variety has a slightly different flavor, so be sure to ask your seafood monger for recommendations for your recipe.

When cooking salmon, you might notice a white foamy residue appear on the surface of the fish. This protein, called albumin, is pushed out of the muscle fibers as the fish cooks, and becomes more noticeable if you overcook your fish. Albumin is perfectly harmless, so you can just scrape it off for picture-perfect salmon.

Salmon recipes are wonderful when paired with our favorite asparagus recipes, or add a simple salad on the side.
