Fresh Additions To Salmon

Salmon /ˈsæmən/ is the common name for several species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. Other fish in the same family include trout, char, grayling and whitefish. Salmon are native to tributaries of the North Atlantic and Pacific Ocean

Salmon is a versatile fish to cook and can be presented in so many different ways. It is full of good fats and is easy and quick to cook, making it a great choice to have in your regular dinner rotation. But just having a plain piece of seared, baked, or grilled salmon can get boring quickly, so here are five easy ways to jazz it up!

1. Herbs

Herbs add a ton of fresh flavor that enhance the fish without overpowering it. Toss whatever herbs you have on hand with a little oil and citrus juice and you’re golden. Don’t have the time? A store-bought pesto is just fine too. Use your own blending of seasonings that you love. This is definitely the fish to be creative!

2. Breadcrumbs

A coating of crunchy breadcrumbs instantly makes salmon more like those guilty-pleasure frozen fish sticks. Dip salmon fillets in beaten egg or brush with a mustard-mayo mixture before coating in fresh breadcrumbs or panko, then pan fry or bake until golden brown. Feel free to add some of your favorite herbs and spices to the breadcrumbs too. If you do not particularly like the breadcrumb idea and frying, you can always do a light lemon juice blend of seasoning and bake it.

4. Yogurt Sauce

A creamy but slightly tangy sauce works really well with salmon, and it’s why sour cream-dill sauce over salmon is such a classic. Try mixing in curry powder, Sriracha, or scallions into yogurt for an easy, elegant salmon topper. Using a sauce on your fish is definitely a personal preference, it isn’t a taste for everyone.

5. Glaze or Marinade

Finally, a glaze or marinade made with condiments you probably already have in the fridge is a simple way to infuse the salmon with different flavors. If the glaze or marinade has sugar, it’ll help the salmon caramelize on the outside even more as it’s cooking.
