Recipes: Salmon, Part 2

salmon_recipeI won’t lie, sharing some of the amazing fish recipes that I’ve had the opportunity to partake in over the years with all of you is one of my favorite things about my role at LiveOutdoors. Fish is just one of those versatile dishes that, no matter your own tastes or preferences, can be prepared to suit any palette. Salmon is no exception. Yes, I’ve done salmon recipes a few months ago, but an article with two recipes for such a healthy and delicious fish is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how many ways salmon can be cooked.

1 tsp salt

Ground pepper, to taste

¼ cup sugar


4 salmon steaks or fillets

1.  In a medium bowl, combine salsa ingredients and chill for several hours.

2.  Lightly coat the salmon with the seasoned flour and fry in the butter until brown.

3.  Plate the salmon and garnish with salsa.

Poached Salmon

4 salmon steaks

2 stalks celery, diced

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp dried tarragon

Salt and pepper, to taste

1.  In a skillet, combine wine, onion, celery, oil, and tarragon, and bring to a boil.

2.  Add the salmon, and cover, poaching 8-12 minutes (until salmon is flaky)

As I’ve said before, salmon is my favorite fish to cook, and is very close to being my favorite thing to cook. Fresh salmon is such a great dish, any time of the year, and really allows anyone to showcase their hidden culinary skills in very simple ways. Feel free to add side dishes of your choice to these great recipes and share them with as many guests as you can. Just be sure you have enough fillets for next time, because odds are, they’ll keep coming back for more.
