-Dar Christiansen

Southern Fried Salmon Patties

"The family loved this! I realized after beginning the mixing ingredients process that I did not have cornmeal. I substituted panko for the cornmeal and we loved the crunch!"

"I can't always afford to keep real maple syrup stocked, so I gave this a go with butter-flavored, off-name-brand syrup and it came out terrific!"


Salmon & Asparagus in Foil

Seared Balsamic-Glazed Salmon

"I usually make glaze and store it for when I need it. It takes a good 45 minutes to thicken balsamic vinegar into a glaze. Just pour any cheap bottle of balsamic vinegar into a stainless steel pot. Simmer it on low heat until it coats the spoon. Cool, then pour into a bottle and use whenever you need it."

-Jonathan Melendez

Smoked Salmon Quiche

"I used a store-bought pie crust, and there was too much custard for it. If you do the same, cut the custard in half. Next time, I'll make my own crust and use my deeper pie dish. This is a keeper for sure."

-Cook In Northwest

Cedar-Planked BBQ Salmon

"Strongly suggest removing skin from any fish cooked on a plank. The skin will not crisp, and will prevent the aromatics in the cedar from flavoring the fish, which is the main reason for using cedar."

"A heart-healthy dinner in only minutes."


Pan-Grilled Salmon

"Delicious! I paired it with salad and it's just right portion for an easy summer dinner. It's a keeper!"
