Seasonal Sunday: 10 Best Salmon Recipes

Posted on June 12, 2011



While the Copper River season is short and quantities ultimately limited, the Pacific Northwest is absolutely spoiled with the freshest filets around. From Pike’s Place Market to the local grocery store, Copper River filets and whole fish are available around nearly every corner! While this is not the case across all regions of the US, we have friends around the country who have reported that it is available all over the place – like Nebraska! With Copper River Salmon available nationwide, why not capitalize on this amazing fish with a few of our favorite recipes?

Asian Baked Salmon with Bok Choy and Mushrooms
Filled with Asian flavor, this recipe is relatively easy with a total baking time of 10 minutes! What could be simpler?

Bourbon Glazed Salmon
A personal favorite, this sweet-tangy marinade comes together quickly and makes for a quick and easy clean-up!

Cedar Planked Salmon with Chipotle Brandy Glaze
What better way to prepare salmon than by grilling on a cedar plank? Add smoky chipotle peppers and a dash of brown sugar for a smoky-sweet finish that will leave your guests raving for the recipe.

Chive-Crusted Salmon
While herb crusted meats and fish are a classic way of infusing flavor, the simplicity here is key – especially with the delicate flavors and texture of Copper River salmon, why mask all of that richness with a heavy sauce?

Gouda-Stuffed Baked Salmon
Perfect for those days when the grill is not available, this dish always reminds me of Chicken Cordon Bleu – but with an original twist!

BBQ Salmon
It wouldn’t be summer (or seasonal!) if we didn’t include a straight-up barbecue recipe – and an old-time favorite at that.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Salmon with Lentils
Two of my favorite foods – Copper River Salmon + Prosciutto – come together in this crispy-salty flaky-smooth dish served with steamed lentils – yum!

Salmon Tacos with Salsa Verde
This traditional street fare gets a seriously sophisticated upgrade with the addition of homemade salsa verde and a tequila lime marinade.

Salmon with Blackberry Sauce
Two seasonal treats provide the perfect balance of salty and sweet in this summery dish.

Salmon Cakes with Red Pepper Cream Sauce
Who needs a salmon burger (or a crab cake) when you can have the best of both!
