Eating two portions of salmon each week is a great way to get a healthy dose of omega-3 fish oils. This is a fatty acid that encourages brain growth and reduces your chances of heart disease. On its own, salmon has a tendency to be quite bland; however we are including four tasty salmon recipes that will ensure that your salmon is bursting with flavor!

Soy and Honey Salmon

1lb center-cut salmon fillet, skinless (chopped into 4 equal portions)
1 scallion (finely chopped)
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1tsp fresh ginger (finely chopped)
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)


Mix together the scallion, vinegar, ginger, honey, and soy sauce in a bowl. Place the salmon in a large Ziploc plastic bag and add three tablespoons of the sauce mixture and place it n the refrigerator to marinate. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with a bit of cooking spray. After 15 minutes in the fridge, move the salmon to the baking pan. Broil the salmon for about six to ten minutes. Drizzle the remaining soy sauce mixture onto the fish. And top with sesame seeds.

Baked Salmon with Dijon Mustard

4 salmon fillets
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 tbsp honey
4 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
salt and pepper to taste


In a bowl, mix together the honey, butter, and mustard. Set this mixture aside, and in another bowl mix together the pecans, bread crumbs, and parsley. Give each salmon fillet a good coating of the honey and mustard mixture. Sprinkle the tops with bread crumbs and bake it at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until it is thoroughly cooked. Season with salt and pepper.

Salmon Steaks with Dill

4 salmon steaks
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 tbsp butter or margarine
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup half-and-half
2 tbsp white wine or chicken broth
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill


Put a teaspoon of butter in a skillet and saute the onions. Add in the cream of chicken soup, wine/broth, half-and-half, and dill and mix well. Put the salmon steaks on top of the mixture, then cover the skillet to allow the steaks to simmer. After about 15 minutes, test the salmon with a fork. If it flakes easily, it's done!

Salmon Burgers

2 1/2 lbs king salmon fillet (skinned and de-boned)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup red onion (finely chopped)
2 tsp horseradish
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1 tbsp rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil


Cut the salmon into strips. Cut those strips cross-wise, then continue chopping until the fish is minced. Be sure to remove any bones you may come across. In a bowl, mix together the salmon and bread crumbs. When they are well mixed, add the onion, horseradish, eggs, and Dijon mustard. Season with salt, pepper, and rosemary, then put in the refrigerator for about half an hour. Allow your grill to heat up to a medium-high heat while you shape the salmon mixture into burger patties (roughly eight). Coat each patty lightly with olive oil then grill the salmon for about five minutes on each side.
