Any ideas for cooking Salmon?

Need to make it for someone on a heart healthy, diabetic diet? I've never cooked Salmon and never eaten it except as lox.

It's hard to cook for someone who can't have much of anything that has taste.

If you have other suggestions for other things to cook, would love to hear your ideas. No pasta, no salt, no bread.

Just had Copper River last night on the BBQ. I love salmon just as it is . First precooked in oven then put on the grill. added a bit of garlic ,pepper, butter and lemon . I like it with plain CJ rice . Any green veggies will do but we add asparagus .

I also love fresh salmon on top of a caesar or green salad

parmassan crusted

balsamic glazed

salmon soup (never tried this)

down the heat, add lemon juice and water, and poach it the rest of the way. LOVE salmon. Also good smoked if you have a smoker.

I like to sear it in a cast iron skillet and finish in the oven.

Bake it in the oven in a foil pouch with lemon slices and dill. @375 degrees for 30 minutes. It's delicious.

Buy some cedar planks and put the salmon on that and then throw it on the grill. Smells and tastes great!

I love love love salmon!

My two favorite ways to cook it are:

seared and finished in the oven - get a cast iron pan blazing hot, no oil is needed because the fish is naturally oily. Put the fish in skin side down, immediately put in an oven on broil. Broil about 8 inches away from the heating element for about 10 minutes (check for doneness with a thermometer, it should be around 140*).

poached - this is admittedly "lighter" than the other way because some of the fat is left behind in the poached water. Fill a pot with water and season with white wine and lemon slices. Get to a slow boil, turn down to simmer, and place fish in the water. Poach for about 10 minutes until pink and opaque.

Serve fish over brown rice, quinoa, or just with a green salad.

Plain

I almost always do my salmon just plain and I love it! I put on the George Foreman, take it off when it's done and eat it plain...no spices or marinades. I love it!

I've also done a parmesan crusted one in the air fryer that is really good. It's easy and delicious.

I will sometimes put it over pasta, too. I'll cook the salmon on the George Foremann. For the pasta, I just use spaghetti noodles and then cut up Roma tomatoes, add in lots of basil, a few fresh garlic cloves, and some olive oil. I just eye ball it all, no exact amounts. Then I put the tomato/basil/garlic/olive oil combination over the pasta with the salmon and some shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese.

You have lots of great ideas. I'll just add that my favorite is to bake it with either fresh basil or fresh rosemary, white wine, salt and pepper, and a few butter curls on top. On the barbeque is also delicious.I prefer wild, not farmed salmon.

So, first of all

I didn't know the fillets would still have some scales on them.

I cooked them in foil in the oven. I'll try a different way next time. They were ok, but needed a little jazzing up.

I know it's probably un-American, but I don't have a grill or a cast iron skillet so won't be cooking them that way, but may try the seasonings any way.

I'll definitely try the wild salmon too.

Again, thanks for all your help.

My in-laws love fishing on Lake Michigan and we always get so much salmon from them. Seriously, try Jackie’s suggestion somehow.(just realized you said you don’t have a grill, but if you can get your hands on one...) Salmon tastes so good grilled on a cedar plank. Be sure to soak the plank in water, first.

Like Teacherbee4, I cook it on a George Foreman grill. I add salt and pepper (sometimes a seasoning salt) and some lemon juice. It is delicious!!
