Salmon ideas

Bought a salmon from the fishmongers last week and it's done us everyday a good few meals!
Got about 1/4 of the fish left (maybe a bit more than that) and looking for some dinner ideas.
We've had fishcakes
salmon en croute
salmon, new potatoes and veg
Salmon and rice

Any ideas of something different?

I love these salmon burgers and so do my DC!

This is gorgeous. We have it regularly. (I give the spuds 10 mins in microwave first, with a bit of salt & water, & adjust times accordingly - they can be a bit hard otherwise)

Salmon flaked into pasta is delicious - especially love it served with broccoli florets and a creamy, garlic sauce. Something a bit different!

One of our regulars is a tray bake, Blanche some green beans, mix them with cherry toms, black olives, bit of olive oil and fresh basil, spread that mix one end of baking sheet and salon the other then cook til salmons ready. You can add anchovies to the mix too. Think it's a Jamie Oliver recipe originally. If I've got less salmon I just do more veg.
We have it with roasted new potatoes, rice or couscous.

Hairy Dieters Salmon with Chilli Ginger Sauce

1 ball stem ginger in syrup
1 tbsp syrup from the ginger
1 - 2 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
finely grated zest 1/4 of an orange
freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 orange (about 65 - 70ml)
1/4 long red chilli, thinly sliced
2 x salmon fillets, skin on (about 125 - 150g each)
freshly ground black pepper


Prep Time does not include marinating time


Put the ginger ball on a board and slice it thinly. Pile up the slices from the ball and cut through them them to make thin matchstick strips. Put these into a bowl that's large enough to hold the salmon and add 1 tbsp of the syrup from the jar.

Peel the garlic cloves and slice them thinly, then add them to the bowl with the ginger. Stir in the soy sauce, orange zest, orange juice and red chilli.

Put the salmon in the bowl with the marinade. Season with lots of fresh ground black pepper and turn a couple of times, ending with the fish skin side up. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 220c (200c fan), Gas 7. Line a small baking tay with baking parchment. Take the salmon fillets out of the marinade, scraping off any bits and pieces, and place them on the tray, skin side down. Season with more ground black pepper. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon.

Meanwhile prepare the sauce. Pour the marinade into a tiny non stick pan and bring to the boil. Cook for 6 minutes or until the liquid has reduced and the garlic is softened. You need enough of the marinade to pour over the salmon but not swamp it completely.

Put the salmon fillets on warm plates, carefully lifting off the skin as you go. Spoon the sauce over the salmon and serve with a small portion of rice or new potatoes and some steamed or stir fried vegetables.

Serving Size: 2 fillets with spooned over sauce

I was also going to suggest the salmon burgers.

Or a pasta bake, with cheese sauce, salmon cubes (raw) and broccoli (pre-cooked) sorry I have no precise recipe, but mix cooked pasta and other ingredients, sprinkle with grated cheese and bake for 30 mins, kind of like macaroni cheese bake.

I'd have Thai salmon curry with yellow curry paste (if you can get it, barts is the best, green if not), a tin of coconut milk, lemongrass, red chilli, ginger, black mustard seeds, spring onions and some veg like peppers, babycorn and mangetout.

I had salmon for tea after getting a craving from this thread! Also going to lots of ideas from this thread.

Drizzle lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and garam masala on it, roast on hight for 10 to 15 min, eat with some wilted spinach.

Look up Bill Grainger's Caramel Salmon recipe.

Made this a few times.

Salmon is excellent in curry and marries well with coconut milk.

This recipe from Meera Sodha's Made in India book is nice - my older teen daughter loves it.

For breakfast in scrambled eggs and spinach, piled on a hot buttered toasted bagel half ?

Tagliatelle aux deux saumons. I don't have a recipe but it contains cooked salmon, smoked salmon, and cream.

I oven bake them with cajun spice. They are gorgeous. BBQ sauce also lovely.
