Salmon is the third-most consumed seafood in North America, not only for its exceptional flavor and versatility, but for its undeniable health benefits. Rich in Omega-3s, it's a valuable protein source for those looking to eat healthier, consume less meat, or transitioning to a paleo or pescatarian diet. Salmon features 45 recipes showcasing the best ways to prepare this luscious, accessible fish. James Beard award-winning author Diane Morgan has crafted a go-to reference for home cooks who want to add more creative preparations of salmon to their repertoire. Each chapter highlights a different approach to cooking this incredibly versatile fish. Scandinavian-Style Salmon Gravlax is featured in the chapter, "Raw and Cured." Indian Spice-Rubbed Pan-Griddled Salmon is perfected in the chapter titled, "On the Stove Top." Techniques for cooking Whole Roasted Salmon with Lemon, Fennel, and Onion are detailed in the chapter, "In the Oven." And, of course, no salmon book would be complete without a chapter on grilling. That's included, too, whether you are cedar planking salmon or forming patties and grilling salmon burgers. Recipes include all savory meal occasions—appetizers, dinner, pizza, brunch, and more—providing inspiration for healthy eaters and fish lovers alike.
