Spice-Rubbed Roasted Salmon with Lemon-Garlic Spinach
Try Tori's side-dish suggestion for a meal that's fit for company but still easy to put together: "This was fantastic! My husband and I love salmon and are always trying to find new ways to prepare it. We served it with mashed potatoes and they were the perfect accompaniment to the spinach. We will be making this again. This is worthy of a special occasion. This is a restaurant quality dish."
Broiled Salmon with Marmalade-Dijon Glaze
This eight-minute, seven-ingredient recipe is a regular on 316believer's table. "This is one of the best salmon recipes I have ever tried. We eat salmon a few times a week and this is the most requested by my picky husband. It is perfect just for the two of us, but would be wonderful for guests as well. It is fast (one of my favorite last-minute work-night meals). It is just delicious."
Salmon Croquettes with Rémoulade
A secret herb was the key to this recipe for croquette conoisseur klasshen, who also offers a tip. "Delicious! I've made dozens of different salmon croquette recipes, but never with tarragon. The tarragon adds such a unique taste. I highly recommend chilling the mixture according to the directions. I skipped the chilling and had a hard time getting the patties to stay together.
Smarty really loves this versatile and easy recipe, writing, "This is hands down one of my most favorite recipes. It's simply amazing. It's a complete knockout. Make sure to line the broiler with aluminum foil, though, as it does leave a bit of a sticky mess behind. I'm made it with salmon (my favorite) and chicken (also good, but not as good as the salmon). You'll love this. Make it tonight."
Smoked Salmon Dip
This turned out to be a perfect party hors d'oeuvre for Claire. "I made this dip over the weekend for my grandma's 90th birthday. It was fantastic, and everyone loved it. This was so simple to make, and the resulting color and flavor were amazing. I will definitely make this again."
Potato and Double-Horseradish Salmon
Spicy heat from prepared horseradish and Japanese wasabi plus a crisp potato crust highlight the natural flavor of salmon without overpowering it in this dish.

I am not a huge fan of salmon, but I just love this recipe, I will definitely make it again and again. It's a snap to prepare, easily done on a worknight."

Grilled Salmon and Spinach Salad
Sweet and citrusy, this salmon and spinach salad is a great way to cool down a hot summer day. It's an attractive dish to serve guests, too. The sweet citrus vinaigrette can be made earlier in the day and stored in the refrigerator
Salmon with Hoisin Glaze
This five-ingredient salmon marinates for eight minutes then cooks for eight minutes and is guaranteed to please. Enjoy garlicky-spicy snow peas on the side.
Grilled Salmon with Smoky Tomato Salsa
The salsa brings the heat as a topping to the salmon, but if you prefer a milder relish, remove seeds from the jalapeño before grilling.

Slow-Roasted Brown Sugar and Dill Cured Salmon

Crispy Skin Salmon with Fiery Asian Slaw
Skin-on salmon fillets provide the best flavor and texture for this recipe.
Put together a big batch of the spice rub, and keep it in an airtight container; use it to add flavor to meat and fish on weeknights.
Tangy tomatoes, sweet oranges, and briny olives bring lively color and bold flavor to this simple dish.
For best results, choose salmon from the meaty center of the fish and avoid portions cut from the tail section (where the body starts to taper). Tail-end flesh contains more connective tissue than center-cut fillets. Use black sesame seed buns, if available.
Grilled Salmon with Chorizo and Fingerlings
Smoked paprika emphasizes the grilled flavor of the fish, while Spanish chorizo adds a smokiness to the dish.
By pairing this superfast recipe with a light salad, you can impress guests and have time to enjoy the meal.

Although smoked Irish salmon is traditional, any smoked salmon will work in this dish—just make sure to purchase smoked wild salmon because it's a sustainable choice.
Grilled King Salmon with Tomato-Peach Salsa
King (also called chinook) salmon is the best quality and works well in this dish, though sockeye works. Use a peach that's just ripe so it's juicy, but still holds its shape.
Salmon with Red Pepper Pesto
This salmon does have a bite of raw garlic, which can be countered by dropping the clove in boiling water for 1 minute to blanch, then proceeding with the pesto.
Plank-Grilled Salmon with Grape Relish
Briny olives, sweet grapes, and rich salmon match well with the balance of earthiness and acidity found in a pinot noir. Substitute picholine or other green olives, if necessary.
Salmon and Bok Choy
Bok choy and low-sodium soy sauce combined with salmon provides tasty Asian flavor with a heart-healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids.
