Salmon fiesta (with recipes)

Salmon is one of the few things that I really like and are actually good for you. Not only is it delicious in every form, it’s also rich in Vitamin B-12, Vitamin D, omega-3 fats that reduce risk of cardiovascular diseases & many more health benefits and nutrients.

My favorite is having smoked salmon with poached eggs, spread on an omelette or simply on some bagels.
I thought I’d share some other cool and simple recipes you could make with salmon.

Eggs Benedict

 


Salmon pasta

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll find I don’t usually cook actual dishes like pasta for instance, always found them a little too much work in the kitchen, guess I was wrong.

This next salmonated item was super easy to make, all you need to is to boil the pasta for 8-10 minutes, cook the sauce separately and just mix them all together and stir for about 2 minutes and serve. I used a very basic recipe for the sauce, cooking cream, Rosemary, chopped parsley, mushrooms, salt & pepper, and added the sliced pieces of smoked salmon at the very end, right before mixing it with the cooked pasta.



Salmon rolls 

This next one is much easier, won’t need to use a stove/oven at all really. All you’ll need is some tortilla, cream cheese and smoked salmon.

Spread the cheese on the tortilla, top it with the salmon, then roll it into one big sausage-like roll, put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Then start slicing it into small pieces, top with some soy sauce and serve!


Salmon Burger

This has got to be one of the tastiest things, and one of my favorite ways to eat salmon. You’ll need actual fresh salmon for this dish, not smoked salmon. I used those little frozen salmon burgers, which are basically cutlets of salmon.

First, I pre-heated the on-stove grill, buttered it up and tossed some chopped onions. Then started grilling the salmon cutlets, 5 minutes each side, to have it perfectly juicy and you don’t want it to burn.

As you’re cooking the salmon, you can stir-fry some fresh mushrooms and onions on a saucepan, and once the salmon is cooked, put the mushrooms and onions on the bottom bun of a toasted burger bun (or bread of choice), top it with the salmon, and drizzle with teriyaki sauce and freshly toasted sesame



Salmon & Bagels

Saving the easiest for last, you can just spread some cream cheese on a fresh toasted bagel and top it with the smoked salmon, adding some arugula leaves could be a nice addition too.
