In keeping with the Lenten spirit, I thought I’d feature some sort of non-fried fish recipes this Friday. I think salmon is a great fish for anyone just starting to eat or cook seafood beyond fish sticks, because it can be at its best with just a little olive oil, lemon and herbs. But it’s also a versatile fish that works as well in Asian dishes as New England-style chowder. Here are six varied takes on easy, healthy salmon dishes for winter nights.
1. Honey-Terijayki Salmon with sugar snap peas and black rice. GET THE RECIPE, via Skinny Taste
2. Salmon Tikka Wraps with cucumber raita. You can make a vegetarian or vegan version using Paneer or Tofu also. GET THE RECIPE, via Soni’s Food
3. Salmon Chowder. Warming, veggie-filled salmon chowder that’s “seriously cozy (but still really healthy and actually very light).” GET THE RECIPE, via Heather Christo
4. Blackened Salmon Sandwiches. Make a big batch of the spice rub ahead of time, store in an airtight container and use whenever you want to make quick, well-seasoned sandwiches. GET THE RECIPE, via Martha Stewart
5. Broiled Salmon with Rosemary. Both salmon and rosemary are good for your brain, making this a doubly brain-healthy meal. GET THE RECIPE, via Daydream Kitchen
6. Baked Salmon with Horseradish Gremolata.Super simple and fresh, with parsley, fresh horseradish, lemon zest, olive oil and sea salt. GET THE RECIPE, via Clean Eating
