Salmon - The Fish For All Seasons

I just found out that my precious salmon is a cousin of the trout. Why does that bother me so? These creatures are as unique as the recipes we turn them into. Did you know that Pacific salmon die soon after spawning while the Atlantic salmon spawn several times in their lives?Salmon_hong_kong

You may purchase salmon as a whole fish and prepare to serve it as such. What an impressive presentation for your next dinner party. Salmon steaks are a vertical cut from the body of the fish, are usually thick and make a nice presentation as well. Salmon fillets are best for delicate applications such as pan-frying, steaming or poaching. I recommend Fish4Fun if you're looking for unique recipes such as toppings like Honey-Macadamia with Pineapple Relish. Don't forget GourmetStation's salmon and seafood collection if you are seeking a gourmet gift or treat for yourself.
