These are the best recipes for salmon that I have been able to find from all around the internet. I’ve tried to include a wide range of recipes to cover just about anything you might want to do with salmon.
If you’re tired of the same-old, same-old when it comes to salmon (cedar plank salmon, salmon patties, salmon croquettes, etc.) then you’re going to love this list of twists on an old favourite!
Caramelised Salmon Recipe
This recipe contains only five ingredients and takes only 20 minutes to prepare. The salmon gets a nice, crispy crust on the outside while staying moist and flaky on the inside. The sugar really gives the salmon a depth of flavour that will really surprise you!
Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa Recipe
This recipe for grilled salmon with avocado salsa is a light, fresh take on salmon that is really exciting. It takes a fish that is normally quite oily and heavy and really lightens and brightens it up. It’s a healthy edge to this oily fish, and helps take some of the intensity out of the fish.
Balsamic Glazed Salmon
This recipe for Balsamic Glazed Salmon makes a beautiful presentation that looks artfully presented on a plate. Fortunately, it also tastes divine!
Asian Salmon in Foil
The trouble with making salmon in foil is that a lot of time you can’t taste much of anything except that intense salmon flavour. This recipe changes all that. It packs a huge wallop of flavour in one small packet, with notes of ginger, garlic, and even Sriracha! Trust me, there’s a big punch of flavour in this recipe! It’s delicious served with sautéed baby bok choi!
Honey Teriyaki Salmon
Oh… my… gosh! This is one of the most delectable salmon recipes I’ve ever tried, and I kept thinking, “Where has this been all my life?” This recipe gives the salmon a glaze (more like a lacquer) of honey, soy sauce, mirin, and sake! You will become hopelessly addicted to this dish once you try it! Have you ever seen a more gorgeous salmon dish?
Salmon, Guacamole and Bacon Wraps
This is definitely one of the more original recipes I’ve run across for salmon, and I’m really glad I did. The avocado really brightens up the flavour of the salmon, and the bacon adds back a note of richness. It’s just divine!
Hawaiian Salmon Poke
Okay, if you’ve never given raw salmon a try, now might be the time to do it. Trust me, it’s not bad! I actually really enjoy the flavour now that I finally talked myself into trying it, and I really think you will, too. This recipe uses a couple of semi-unusual ingredients like Furikake rice seasoning and Nori (the type of seaweed typically used in sushi), but the flavours are so over-the-top incredible that it’s worth it to find them!
Japanese Salted Salmon
This is a very simple recipe, but the flavour and texture are absolutely out of this world! It’s a little adventurous, but with only 4 ingredients (one optional), you really should give it a try.
Salmon isn’t the first thing most people think of when it comes to making a bisque. Other seafood like shellfish (lobster, crab, shrimp…) happens to be a lot more common. But in this case, the salmon really works well with the other ingredients to create an unbeatable bisque that you’ll be hard-pressed to top even with the likes of crab or lobster!
Salmon Tacos with Jalapeño Cream Sauce
Fish tacos seem to be on every restaurant menu these days, and most of them are pretty boring and outdated. Fortunately, this one is an exception. The salmon isn’t hidden by the other ingredients… it’s enhanced by them. This is a recipe you’ll come back to again and again!
Easy Salmon Cioppino Stew
Cioppino is a classic seafood stew that typically contains various types of seafood with tomatoes, herbs, and other ingredients. This recipe tells you that you can use a fish of your choice, but it specifically names salmon as a possibility, and it’s a great choice! Plus, this stew is chock full of nutrients! Very healthy!
