Here are seven unique ways to cook salmon at home. Each dish has a distinct flavor profile and is easy to make.

1. Salmon and papillote

I know the name sounds fancy, but this is a really easy recipe for baked salmon in parchment. The secret is to cook the fish in aluminum foil while it rests on a baking sheet. This ensures that the salmon is perfectly cooked and that the flavors are optimally preserved. And the parchment bag steams the fish for a healthier version of oven-roasted salmon, since you don’t use any oil or butter.

The ingredients are super simple. You will of course need a salmon fillet and baking paper. Then you can add vegetables and herbs of your choice. One of our favorite combinations is asparagus, onions, garlic and shallots with lemon juice and some salt and pepper. And you can make this stylish salmon recipe in less than 30 minutes.

3. Salmon cake with white wine sauce

Salmon patties are such an easy way to introduce salmon to the little ones. And it’s better if they have a delicious golden crust!

The fish cakes only need a salmon fillet, a little butter, onions, dill, parsley, panko bread or plain breadcrumbs, an egg, lemon zest, salt and pepper and olive oil. The white wine sauce is a bit more chic but still easy to prepare. The ingredients are butter, onion, parsley, whipped cream, white wine, dill, salt and pepper.

4. Salmon Ceviche

Ceviche is one of the most unique ways to cook salmon. This is a traditional Peruvian seafood recipe prepared with fresh raw fish salted with lemon or lime. The salmon meat is cut into thin cubes and marinated with a citrus mix. It is not the same as eating raw fish, as the citrus will heal and cook the salmon. Even though it takes longer to prepare, this meal is well worth the one hour cooking time. It’s fresh, healthy and perfect for the warmer months.

To make this exquisite dish you will need fresh raw salmon (skinless), sea salt, vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, red onion, radishes, parsley, tomatoes, cucumbers and sesame seeds. Once the marinade is ready, let the salmon set for at least an hour. It’s worth the wait (promise)!

There are many flavorful smoked salmon recipes and this BLT sandwich is one of them. You can make it in less than 15 minutes and take it on the go!

6. Salmon Shioyaki

Salmon shioyaki is one of those salmon recipes that takes a little longer to prepare, but is well worth it. Shioyaki is the Japanese way of preparing salt-grilled salmon. Its simple home cooking process makes it a fan favorite and, trust me, this meal doesn’t disappoint. It is unique, crispy and ideal for preparing meals.

You’ll see how easy this recipe really is once you read the ingredients. It’s as simple as a good salmon fillet, 5 percent by weight of the salmon in salt, rice wine or mirin, and lemon wedges. Once the fillet is salted, you’ll want to let it rest overnight for best results. Then the next day just air fry or grill.

7. Tandoori Salmon

Roasted salmon is definitely a classic, but what about tandoori roasted salmon? That’s a game changer! Tandoori is a cooking method that originated in Persia that uses a clay oven to cook the meat. Even though you’ll probably have to skip the clay oven, the traditional tandoori marinade and your grill will do the trick! This unique dish will make you shine at any dinner party.

The ingredients are simple but distinctive. You will need Tandoori spices to make your marinade: garam masala, red chili powder, turmeric, oil, lemon juice, grated ginger, garlic powder and salt. Then you need a boneless, skinless salmon fillet. Pat the salmon dry before letting it marinate for 20 minutes. Roast 10 minutes and call it a day!
