Any salmon recipe that appears to be more complicated than opening a can or cooking it in foil is probably worth trying. Salmon is one of the best fish you can eat, and it’s also one of the easiest to prepare. Salmon is a versatile fish that exudes richness and flavor. When prepared well, it can be moist and flavorful even though it doesn’t have to be fried or loaded with sauce to taste good.
It’s a great source of protein, and wild salmon has more heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than its farmed cousins. With its mild flavor, salmon is an excellent canvas for other flavors. It partners well with lemon, dill, fennel, vinegar, and garlic, among others. It also is good with just salt and pepper. Salmon pairs nicely with tomatoes, pesto, and many other vegetables; Check out the recipes below for some delicious Salmon meals. Love fish then have a look at our other delicious fish recipes.
