  • bake it. My family really never puts anything on except the spices that everyone likes. Its really easy to cook. Sorry I can't be more help.

  • Oh yeah you really got to watch it or it will dry out.

  • I fold it up in Foil like a little packet with Lemon and herbs. (Dill is real good with Salmon!) And bake it until it's flaky in the middle. (I can't stand eating raw meat!)

  • I'm in Seattle, so it's a staple around here. My favorite is to make a miso-brown sugar glaze. You just get some miso paste and brown sugar, and mix it up. It has a nice salty-sweet taste to it. You just bake it, uncovered, until the flesh is to taste-- most like it firm.

    I also like to make a butter-dill spread. You just mash up butter and dill, spread it evenly over the fish, bake/grill with lemon slices on top.

  • My family prefers it grilled.

  • My mom always "chicken fried" it. She'd dip it in season flour and then pan fry it. It was yummy! I've also had it marinated in just lemon juice and a few spices and baked or grilled.

    This past weekend we actually made Salmon Tacos. Here's the recipe for that!

  • Buy your salmon (we just bought frozen and it worked fine for this) Marinate your salmon in fresh Lemon juice, Lemon pepper and salt pepper etc. - Marinate for at least a couple hours. Bake Salmon until the meat flakes off. Let cool and shred.

    In a sauce pan saute chopped onions, minced garlic and olive oil until onions are transparent. Add one pint of whipping cream. Keep on Medium/High heat and stir for around 8-10 minutes. Add a few pinches of salt and a couple pinches of sugar. Pepper too. Take off heat . Add 1 TBLS of Lemon Juice and 1 TBLS of Lime Juice ( I actually think I"m gonna cut back on the lime a little) and as much cilantro as you like. Let cool.

    Serve with shredded red cabbage, cilantro and limes. I also made spanish rice. Go easy on the sauce. It's kinda strong but yummy!

  • I serve corn tortillas with this instead of flour, but you can try whatever you like. Also since it was just me and hubby eating this, I just used two salmon fillets, but this is a great group meal. If using corn tortillas I'd figure 1 fillet per person (does 3-4 small tacos). We had most of the sauce left over and I had to throw it out because there was no way hubby and I could use it all between the 2 of us. I'd say the sauce probably makes enough for 15-20 tacos. (used lightly).
