This round-up of 20 Delicious Salmon Recipes has something for everyone with choices ranging from salad to smoker recipes to a sheet pan meal. With so many tasty choices, the hardest part will be deciding which salmon recipe to try first!
Growing up, we didn’t eat a lot of fish or seafood despite living in a coastal city. Sure, we ate salmon patties from canned salmon (one of my favorites!) and a few tuna recipes with canned tuna … and of course we had frozen fish sticks – but there were very, very few fresh seafood dishes. Not many shrimp dishes. Not many fish dishes. I can probably count the exact number of times on one hand.
Growing up, I was one of those people who thought I didn’t like fish or seafood … because I never really had it. I remember the first time trying fried catfish in a restaurant in the Midwest. It was a highly raved about dish in the city, so I took a chance and ordered it. I was NOT prepared for how it would come on my plate. I thought it would come in a nice little fillet … but it ended up coming as a whole catfish (head and guts removed). I’ll admit, I was a bit mortified as I felt weird not knowing how to eat a fish presented this way. A quick look around the dining room showed me that I had to remove the flaky fish from the bones then flip it over and repeat on that side. I realized that I actually kind of enjoyed the dish and that began my quest to try all of the fish and seafood things when we went out for dinner.
I have to admit that salmon is by far my most favorite choice. We try to eat it a few times a month at home – which means I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. I’ve put together 20 delicious salmon recipes and I am sharing them with you! I hope you enjoy!
