Let's get cooking
Salmon’s a versatile fish that can work with plenty of different flavours. Compared to other species the salmon has a mild, round rich flavour. It’s one of the reasons children love it and you can choose almost any style of cooking and seasoning with it.
Roasting, broiling or grilling
If you’re grilling then try flavours like chili, ginger, garlic and sesame. If you roast or broil you’ll also want strong seasonings, herbs and vegetables to match the big flavour you’ll get from these ways of cooking. Flavours like lemon and dill work well, as do root vegetables.
Braising or poaching
This tends to produce lighter flavours, so it suits equally delicate herbs and seasonings. It’s a good idea to pair poached or braised salmon with dairy products like sour cream and crème fraîche.
