On busy weeknights, you don't have to reinvent the wheel to put supper on the table thanks to these flavorful salmon dishes.
There is a recipe here that you and your family will adore, whether you're cooking with king salmon, coho salmon steaks, or even delicate smoked salmon!
Salmon en Papillote
This salmon recipe looks and tastes refined, but is pretty much a humble one-pot-meal wrapped in paper. There's a lot of flavor in this deceptively simple French fish recipe. This one is a winner, no matter how confident you may-or-may-not feel cooking with salmon.
Japanese Salted Salmon (Shiozake)
Shiozake is an iconic Japanese salted salmon dish you'll find in bento box lunches. The finished product is both tender and flakey – with an outer skin that is crispy and practically candied once cooked. This one takes a while to cure in the salt solution, but it's all passive wait time.
Oven Baked Salmon With Honey Sriracha Sauce
The key is to bake the salmon for 10 minutes. Then you'll brush on a delicious soy sauce, Sriracha and honey based glaze. Watch the video to see how easy it is to make from start to finish in your own kitchen. It's sure to make you crave this one again and again.
Salmon Teriyaki Donburi (丼)
Salmon donburi is a Japanese dish consisting of short grain rice topped with simmered meat or seafood. Crispy, tender salmon pieces are tossed in a garlicky, sweet and savory teriyaki sauce. I've included fresh spinach and chopped scallions for a bit of color and crunch.
Warm Asian Salmon Salad
This Asian salmon salad is zingy, filling and refreshing. The flavors from garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce and oyster sauce are perfectly balanced. Rice delivers heft, edamame brings a pop of color and the Mandarin oranges are so sweet and fresh.
Salmon Onigiri (Rice Balls) おにぎり
Onigiri or musubi are Japanese rice balls wrapped in delicate nori (seaweed). Most onigiri are hiding a delicious secret inside as well. Salty fish provides a ton of flavor to the otherwise subdued flavor profile of the nori and rice.
