• Andrew Zimmern’s Best Salmon Recipes


Easy Salmon Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Salmon takes well to almost every cooking technique imaginable—grilling, broiling, sautéing, steaming and poaching… even raw, the fish is buttery and oceanic. Here are eight ways to prepare this healthy menu star, from a classic poached salmon served hot or cold, to a throw-back tomato and salmon aspic.
