Anyone have any ideas for Salmon? We have been craving Sokeye and I want to do something other than the usual.

Salmon with Pecan Crunch Coating

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons butter, melted

5 teaspoons honey

1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

3 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

6 (4 ounce) fillets salmon

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, butter, and honey. In another bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.

Season each salmon fillet with salt and pepper. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush with mustard-honey mixture. Cover the top of each fillet with bread crumb mixture.

Bake for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at thickest part, or until salmon just flakes when tested with a fork.

We love this when we want to do something different than the usual with our salmon. Hope it helps! There is a lot of tasty looking recipes that I will have to come back and try. :)

Collard Wrapped Salmon
8 fingerling potatoes, thinly sliced
2 tablespoon Vidalia onions, chopped
1/2cup cream
1 cup shiitake mushrooms
4 tablespoons Vidalia onions, chopped
4 large collard green leaves
4 wild salmon fillets, such as Sockeye or Coho (about 4 ounces each)
Salt, pepper to taste
Vegetable oil


In a small skillet, heat oil. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper, and fry the potatoes with onions until the potatoes are golden on both sides and cooked through. Combine in a bowl with cream and mix with immersion blender. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Add a little more oil to your skillet and add mushrooms and onions. Cook for a few minutes, until the mushrooms are starting to brown.

Add collard greens to a pot of boiling water, cook for just about a minute and a half and then immerse in a cold water and then pat dry.

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper, cook in a skillet with oil for about a minute per side.

On a top of each collard green leaf, place half of mushrooms, then a salmon fillet, and scoop a generous amount of the fried potato cream to cover the salmon. Wrap the collard green around the filling and close with help of toothpicks if necessary. Arrange on a cedar plank (or a baking sheet). Bake for about 10 minutes, remove the toothpicks, flip over and serve.

Honey & Lavender Glaze Salmon

•2 bags chai tea ( I use Tazo)

•1 bag wild sweet orange tea (Tazo)

•2 Tbs rice (uncooked )

•2 Tbs light brown sugar

•1/4 cup lavender honey( you can use regular)

•1 Tbs dried lavender( (mcmormicks makes some)

•8 ounces sockeye salmon

•1 tsp olive oil

Heat your grill to medium-high.

While the grill heats,Make a the smoking packet by opening the tea bags and empying the contents of the tea bags, the rice, and the brown sugar onto a sheet of tinfoil. Sprinkle the tea with a few drops of water (less than 1/4 teaspoon — just enough so that it’s barely damp). Loosely fold the foil around the ingredients to form a flat packet but dont seal tightly shut you want it to steam and smoke! Place the packet directly on the coals/burner of the heated grill (under the grate). Close the lid and wait 10 minutes for the packet to begin to create smoke.

Pat the salmon dry and brush with the olive oil. Add to the grill, skin-side up, away from direct heat close lid cook for 5 minutes . Flip and let cook for another 3-5 minutes, or until it’s cooked .

Meanwhile, add the honey and lavender to a small saucepan set over low heat. Heat through until the honey melts and becomes very thin. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Brush the glaze over the salmon just prior to serving.

I marinate the salmon in soy sauce, fresh ginger, and either brown sugar or honey. then i wrap in tin foil packets, getting as much juice as you can in the packets...bbq or bake.

My family is all nuts about Sokeye season. Our recent favorite is to pat dry the moisten with a bit of olive oil, rub in a bit of Chipotle tobasco, then finish with a dry rub (paprika (4 Tbsp), brown sugar (4 Tbsp), coarse salt (2 tsp), black pepper 1 tsp). Then smoke it on the grill until done. Yumm! Any leftovers we toss with pasta and tomatoes the next night!

In norway they do a very simple yet yummy dish with salmon.

Either bake or poach salmon fillets. Boil some new potatoes. Thinly slice some cucmber (2 handfulls per person). Place 2 handfulls of cucumber on each plate. Top with salmon and put a few potatoes on the side. Top with a healthy dollop of light sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh chopped chives.
Simple and delish!

Another way is to bake the salmon with cherry tomatoes on top and serve with wild rice blend or a baked rice dish with cheese and broccoli (use cheddar cheese soup or cream of asparagus soup, mix the can of soup with the rice and 2 cups of water in a big bowl add small florets or small chunks of broccoli, bake at 400F for approx 40 mins.)

You could marinate the salmon in sweet chili sauce for an hour then bake serve with rice and roasted carrots!

This is how I fix Salmon: dash of Old Bay seasoning and slice of lemon, wrap it all up in foil and bake at 350 for 30 min.

Try this: mix a cup of plain yogurt with 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped dill and 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice. Pour over salmon in a glass or ceramic baking dish and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours. Then drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, sprinkle with salt & pepper, and either broil 8-10 minutes, or bake at 425^ 15-20 minutes till done.

my absolute favorite is to out just a super thin layer of mayo (my husband taught me that one) and some lemon pepper and chili powder. You spread everything around the surface well and put some lime juice on it, a few cilantro leaves, and wrap it up in aluminum foil. Put it on the stove for about 45min and occasionally check to put a few drops of lime juice if it's drying up too much. It"s simple, healthy, and tastes sooo good!!

I use lemon pepper season, lemon zest and some dill. bake it for about 20 minutes or so. I've put creole seasoning on it also.

I can't wait to see the responses that you receive. I'm also bored with my usual. I just sprinkle some Citrus Grill Seasoning on it and put it under the broiler. Or I have prepare it in a foil packet with the grill seasoning, sliced tomaotes, mushrooms and fresh spinach.

I'm always looking for new ideas!
