11 Salmon Recipes to Melt in Your Mouth

Salmon is one of the most prized fish, as it can be eaten and prepared in many ways. It is an oily fish which contains the all-important omega-3 fatty acids, and is high in protein and vitamin D. It has a beautiful orange to red colour and produces gorgeous flaky succulent flesh when cooked. The Sushi cuisine of Japan and Asia is largely dependent on good quality salmon and the global demand is exceptionally high.

The salmon is connected to folklore and poetry in Celtic mythology as the fish is often seen as wise and features as a creature named the ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ in Irish tales.

If you are lucky enough to have the chance to go fishing for salmon in Scotland, you may well be encouraged to just return the fish to the flow of the river, as it is essential to keep numbers to a manageable level.

Of course, the quality of salmon really can vary, the finest and most expensive is wild salmon and the most common is tinned. The great thing about cooking with salmon is that there are recipes and methods to suit most tastes.

One thing is true that it is such a delight on the tastebuds that it is best to eat expensive smoked salmon without too many distractions, besides a squeeze of lemon getting in the way. For a fish pie, we recommend that even frozen will still taste good. If you want to attempt any sushi at home then prepare to pay for quality as you want this to be very fresh and well sourced.

We hope you enjoy our various salmon recipes and celebrate this wonderfully flavoursome and handsome fish.
