Simple Poached Salmon

Rating: 3.08 stars
A beautifully poached piece of salmon is clean tasting and light. There's only one rule: Don't overcook.

Slow-Baked Salmon and Cherry Tomatoes

Cooking the salmon at a low heat makes for tender meat and a vibrant hue. Set off the fish's decadence with a little basil and a burst of tangy-sweet tomatoes.

Summer Smoked-Salmon Chowder

A rich, creamy chowder made with zucchini, fresh corn kernels, and baby potatoes. With its intense flavor, you only need four ounces of hot smoked-salmon for this one-pot dinner that's made in a Dutch oven.

Salmon-and-Spinach Potpie

A sweet spot between simple salmon and comforting potpie, this dish is packed with iron and Omega 3 fatty acids. The rich, crisp puff pastry contrasts with the spring vegetable and fish filling: light, creamy, and nourishing.

Baked Salmon with Creamy Orzo

A multilayered masterpiece in a cast-iron skillet, this one-pan meal calls for simmering creamy bacon orzo on the stove-top, then nestling lemon-coriander salmon fillets on top and baking in the oven.

Baked Salmon Sushi

There's no raw fish in these easy sushi rolls—just succulent, perfectly cooked salmon and plenty of fresh vegetables. For our food editor's tips on how to roll like a pro, see How to Make Sushi at Home.

Brown-Rice Cakes with Toppings

Puffy brown-rice cakes are just as versatile as toasts for layering on the flavor (and they're gluten-free).

Soy-Glazed Salmon

Rating: 3.43 stars
This tasty, simple salmon recipe is from Anne Ford, of Palo Alto, California.

Roasted Salmon with Butter

Rating: 3.66 stars
Best-selling cookbook author Mark Bittman says, "This basic recipe is easy and reliable, and the results taste great. You can use any thick fillet or fish steak in place of salmon -- swordfish and halibut are also good." This recipe is adapted from Bittman's "How to Cook Everything: The Basics."

Salmon and Scrambled Eggs

Rating: 3.21 stars
Salmon with eggs is a perfect food choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Throw in some toast and you've got a great meal in under 15 minutes.

Crunchy Panko Salmon

A make-ahead, freezable entree that's not a casserole. These baked salmon fillets are prepped and ready to go from the freezer to the oven when you need dinner quick. (They can also be cooked the day they are made.) Serve with a green salad for a quick, light meal.

Savory Crepe Rollups

Crepe rollups make a tasty lunch, an eye-catching party appetizer, or a fun way to introduce "sushi" to the kids. Whichever variation you choose, Asparagus and Prosciutto or Smoked Salmon and Scallion, these salty bites are a treat.
