I eat salmon at least once a week.  Most of the time, I put lemon juice, olive oil and herbs on the filet.  Sometimes I use herb butter to change it around a bit.

We use lemon juice and dill.

I have used a more complex combination of horseradish root, curry powder, dill, lemon juice and minced garlic.

My husband bakes the salmon fillets in the oven with a slice of onion on top.  I steam mine on the stovetop in a skillet with some olive oil, a dab of butter, and just a tiny bit of lemon juice over low heat.   Sometimes I will wrap a roast in foil and bake that at 300-350 until barely done.  Sometimes I cut filets into about 1 inch cubes, coat it in a pancake batter made of kamut or spelt, and fry it in olive oil or grapeseed oil over medium heat.

We sprinkle lemon pepper (tiny, but yummy avoid) on the salmon fillet about 20 min. before grilling on medium heat, turning once. When  the fish pulls apart into flakes with a fork, we baste with garlic butter. This is my daughters favorite way to eat fish!

We pan fry, usually in a bit of grapeseed, maybe with a bit of garlic and lemon.  For a change of pace I sometimes bake in the oven with some honey or maple syrup and soy sauce/braggs or something like that which is also really good.

(hubby does the pan frying and I do the baked kind, so I lean toward the pan frying whenever possible !  but baked is really so easy and good too...)

1. In a frying pan with orange juice and Ginger. Yummy!!!
Don't use any oils as salmon fish is rich.  

2. Cut the salmon in big cubes and cook in a small pot with sliced finokio root.
(Again no oil. Home made stock is welcome).
In a small frying pan I prepare mustard, dill sauce. It is absolutely delicious!!!!

Before shoving into the oven I cover them with a mixture of turmeric, sweet paprika and dried thyme.

Or, turmeric, balti masala and thyme.

I must admit that I eat salmon mainly raw- marinated.
I find the taste to strong when prepaired- but think it is nice when it is raw ????!
I only use VERY fresh fish- that have been in the freezer overnight.
I either makes graved lax ; marinated 24 hours in salt, sugar, and dill or a more south american version with lemonjuice, ginger, garlic and salt.

I eat salmon straight out of the can like tuna.  We have no where in this town to buy fresh seafood   so I have to use the canned that I order on the net, but it is tasty.  I found some skinless and boneless kind that is just really good!  I just mix it with some herbs and it is good that way.

I wrap mine in foil then BBQ, so it doesn't smell up the house...   lol
I use garlic, ginger, parsley, soy sauce, few drops of sesame oil, olive oil, and maple syrup, I mix it all together in a measuring cup then pour it on top then wrap it all up in the foil make sure it's nice and tight, no more than 25 min on the BBQ.  (that is for a full filet)

my 2 cents.

I just finished a meal of baked salmon and a side of steamed vegetables:  rhutabagas, red onion and broccoli.

Here's how I prepared the salmon.  (It was wild Silver Salmon filet)
Drizzled the top of the filet with a little honey
Using my garlic press, squeeze on the juice of a chunk of fresh ginger, one clove garlic and a chunk of red onion.
Sprinkle on a touch of sea salt.
Bake uncovered at 350 to 375 until nearly done.
Then broil for a couple of minutes.

Another quick way to prepare salmon.

Spread a compliant pesto over the top of the fish and bake until tender.

I tend to like foods simply prepared.  Have you tried steaming salmon, it gives the salmon a very velvety, light, flakey texture.  Oven baking gives it a nice flavor, as well with the outside being more on the crusty side, and the inside much more tender.

I usually just season salmon with Celtic sea salt and it tastes great with this minimal seasoning; salmon already has such as robust flavor in of itself.

I like broiling filetes that have been drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.  Makes a lovely crust and very tender inside.

I've also had it poached in a white wine and butter sauce seasoned with Old Bay, but it's pretty extravagant and the butter is an avoid, but it's so good.....sigh.

Thanks for all the great suggestions! I have some salmon and was wondering what to do with it. I don't have an outside grill or that would be my first choice.

i'm looking for some great ways to prepare salmon.  i'm a very boring eater i usually buy salmon fillets and just bake them with no seasoning or anything.  i'm getting bored with that.  what are some good seasonings?  or how do you prepare salmon?  


My favorite way is to marinate it (even for an hour, but a few hours is ideal) with fresh ginger, fresh garlic, Bragg's Liquid Aminos (soy sauce) or Tamari, and (when I could have it) orange juice.  Now I use lemon juice instead.

I also will roast it with fennel and onions and herbs on top.  You can do so many things this way.  You can put thick-sliced tomatoes on top with capers and/or herbs and garlic.  At the very least, if I'm in a hurry, I'll put garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper (used to use black pepper. now I use a smaller amount of cayenne).  Sometimes I'll sprinkle garlic powder, cumin & chili powder & squeeze lime over it.  With all of these methods, I drizzle olive oil on top after some sea salt and red pepper.  When it's finished cooking, you can add some ghee to the pan drippings to make a yummy sauce to pour on top.

Also, you can tear off a big piece of parchment paper & put the salmon in the middle of it & just throw on some fresh veggies & herbs & sea salt.  Wrap the parchment paper to seal it off & bake (really it will steam) in the oven.  The fish will be flaky & have the flavors of all the veggies.  Just be careful opening - use scissors & keep your fingers away so the steam can escape.

So many possibilities.

If you lightly stir-fry or saute vegetables, you can add the salmon to the vegetables or vice versa.  

Salmon picks up spices and flavors of Asian condiments very nicely: ginger, garlic, lemongrass, tamarind, tamari, soy sauce, cilantro.

Salmon also works surprisingly well in Indian curries (without coconut milk). If the recipe calls for firm white fish substitute salmon chunks - it holds together and the flavour is sensational. It's a big secret!

Yum! How long do you think it's in the oven by the time "until it's done" rolls around?

Update:

I put it into a 350 F oven and left it for 21 minutes on the top shelf. It turned out perfect! I didn't even have to put it under the broiler.

I never time it.  In my toaster oven, a 1 lb. filet probably takes around 15 min. max.

It all depends on how well done one like's their fish, I suppose. I like mine well done.

I just needed a ball park figure and now I have one!

Love all these ideas! Will gotta try some!

This is the way I've been doing it ever since: baby salmon fillet, skin side down, in a baking dish or pan, add drop of oil, and some water, sprinkle salt and garlic powder, add fresh garlic cloves if you have. Cover pan and bake on 400 for an hour or so. I love to eat it warm. With cooked beets that I then grate, may add a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Enjoy.
