My boyfriend has been begging me to cook salmo for him this week. The problem is that we often don't have time to let it marninade long enough on weeknights to make much of a difference in flavor because we like to buy the fish that night on our way home from work. Does anyone have an super quick salmon recipes that are weeknight friendly?

When I am doing salmon in a hurry I just drizzle on some olive oil salt and pepper tan top with lemon slices and fresh herbs, I use thyme and dill the most but you can just use your favorites. Then you just bake it at 350' till its gets opaque and flaky, it will depend on the size of the fish you are cooking. Good luck !

I enjoy picking up fresh salmon the same day and cooking it the same night, so I completely understand. For a pretty quick way to get the salmon done under 30 minutes and tasty, I season with lemon, pepper and chili powder. I like spicy, so I tend to go a lil' overboard with the chili. In the time that you are prepping the salmon (2 minutes) let your oven (I often even use my toaster oven) and stick the salmon in for about 20 minutes. I usually put it over a bed of fresh greens with oil and vinegar and put the salmon.

Salmon patties are definately a good way to have salmon. Mix the raw salmon with an egg. Flavor with garlic, dill and minced onion. Form into patties. Roll in bread crumbs and cook over medium heat in a pan coated with olive oil. Nummy stuff.

Just use fresh herbs, lemon juice and salt - it makes wonders to the salmon. I never marinate it. Just serve it with potatoes and a lemon sauce *yummie*

I actually just discovered a WONDERFUL recipe a couple weeks ago. I had some salmon, and wasn't sure what to do with it, so I improvised. The result was phenomenal. Here's what you need: A baking dish (glass or metal, doesn't matter much) Butter or margarine A lemon Salt and pepper A pinch of rosemary (optional) A pinch of parsley flakes (optional) In the baking dish, melt enough butter to cover the bottom of the dish about 1/4 inch. Cut the lemon in half; squeeze one half into the baking dish to mix with the butter, and save the other half. Place the salmon in the dish skin-side up (so that the top of the fillet is in the lemon butter). Let it sit for 10 minutes or so. Flip the salmon right-side up and sprinkle with salt, pepper, rosemary, and parsley. Go easy on the salt, since the butter probably has a considerable amount already. Slice the remaining half of lemon thinly, and arrange the slices on top of the salmon any way you'd like. Stick the salmon in the oven. I used a temperature of 375 for about 20 minutes. You'll know it's done when the salmon is light pink, opaque, and flakes easily (but if you've cooked it before, you probably already know that). It's really, really good. I promise.

I usually don't marinade Salmon at all. I think it tastes best fresh, but I will eat it any way I can get it. It is one of my favorite fishes. An easy way that I make it is to melt about 3-6 Tbsp of butter in a baking dish. Coat the salmon by turning it over in the butter. Then drizzle a little bit of lemon juice on the salmon itself. Sprink dill or use fresh dill on top of the salmon. Cover with foil, and cook at 350 for about 30-45 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon fillet. If you don't want the salmon with dill and lemon, you can replace those with a bit of soy sauce, ginger, and sesame seeds, for something a little bit different. Enjoy.

I love cooking salmon! I know that me & my other half tend to pick up some fresh salmon & come up with our own type of sauces for the salmon. We sometimes will even purchase already prepared dill but making it on your own is so much more fun.. But also so much cheaper sometimes! . . But you can also make the sauce exactly the way you would want it to taste. I guess that's the nice thing about making your own. I enclosed a few recipes with some amazing recipes along with sauces that we love to have on our salmon each time we purchase it. I hope if you try these dishes that you love them just as much as we have when preparing, & eating them! . . Thanks for allowing me to share! xx "Dill Salmon." Ingredients are as follows: - 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil - 1/4 of a teaspoon of pepper - 1 large salmon fillets - 1/2 of a cup of refrigerated dill dip - 2 tablespoons of milk Directions are as follows: - You can pan fry these or even cook them in the oven or grill them as well. So whichever way you choose would be fine. We cook them in the oven, but sometimes grill them. - Place the salmon on 24 inch piece of aluminum foil. Then brush the salmon with the oil, & sprinkle with pepper. Wrap the foil securely around the salmon. Or you don't even have to put the salmon in the foil, you can leave it uncovered. And cook them on a baking sheet with oil. - You can cover the salmon & grill it over medium heat for 20 - 30 minutes until the fish flakes move easily with fork. Or cook in the oven for 30 minutes or until ready. I cook them on 350 degrees F. usually or higher. If you put them any higher than this temperate you'd have to watch them carefully though. - Then mix the dill dip with the milk until smooth. And serve the salmon when ready with the dill sauce. "Lemon, Garlic Salmon." Ingredients are as follows: - 2 salmon fillets, thawed - 2 tablespoons of butter - 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper - 2 teaspoons of minced garlic - lemon wedge - You could also substitute butter & use olive oil instead. Directions are as follows: - Firstly melt the butter in a large skillet over medium - high heat. - Then stir in the garlic. Season the salmon fillets or steaks on both sides with the yummy lemmon pepper. - Then place the fillets - steaks in a pan & cook for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Measured at the thickest part or at least until the fish flakes are tested with a fork. - Then flip the fillets - steaks halfway through cooking to brown them on both sides. - Sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving. This recipe can easily be doubled as well, at least this is what we had found when cooking them. Serve with rice or whatever dish your heart desires. & ENJOY! xx

EASY EASY EASY to make. Just rub a little Olive Oil on the fish (make sure it's already thawed), then cover in lemon pepper and wrap in tin foil. Put in on broil in your overn for 10 minutes or until the fish flakes apart. I've done this a number of times. It's a fast and easy dinner and it's really good!!!

My husband makes really quick salmon in the microwave (!) of all places. He takes a small piece of fillet and puts it in a bowl with water, soy sauce, and sugar. If you have time, you can let it marinade. Then, while still in the marinade, he nukes it for a few minutes- checking it frequently for doneness. He usually does this when he needs a quick lunch to bring to work. The then puts the fillet on top of a green salad. I like to make salmon by using whatever seasonings I have on hand (dried dill and lemon is good, or generic seafood seasoning is also good). Then, I fold the filet and seasonings into a tinfoil pocket and bake or grill it for about 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filet. Easy, quick, and good.

My favourite is cedar plank salmon. Some grocery stores will sell cedar planks, about a foot long and a couple inches wide. You just soak the plank in water, season the salmon (olive oil, salt and pepper, lemon juice, and whatever herbs you want), lay the salmon on the plank skin side down, and BBQ until nice and flaky. It gives it a delicious smoky, savoury flavour. I've also made a maple ginger salmon recipe recently: You need 1 cup pure maple syrup, 2 tbsp ginger root chopped up finely, 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 3 tbsp soya sauce, and 1 1/2 tsp fresh diced garlic cloves. Combine the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until the syrup thickens up, then just spoon the sauce over the salmon and bake or BBQ, saving some extra sauce to spoon over when you flip it, or halfway through cooking. The maple and ginger give it such a unique flavour, but go so well with the salmon!

Whether broiled, baked, poached or microwaved, salmon cooks in a matter of minutes. These delicious recipes use ingredient combinations that complement salmon's delicate texture and showcase its sumptuous flavor, yet they'll get you out of the kitchen and on to other activities in record time 1/4 cup honey 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 2 tablespoons lime juice 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, lime juice and mustard. Marinate the salmon in the sauce in the refrigerator for several hours, or until ready to cook. In a nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook the salmon on each side, 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown, crispy, and just cooked through. Transfer the salmon to a platter. Add the remaining honey glaze to the skillet, and simmer, stirring, until the mixture comes to a boil. Return the salmon to the pan, heat thoroughly, and serve immediately.

Thisone sounds good, but it has the marinading problem. It might not be the best for a weeknight unless I buy the salmon the night before and let it sit in the marinade. It does sound good thought and might be helpful for a weekend dish.

I do not have any salmon recipe worthwhile. If possible, buy cooked salmon from local vendors in your city. Here, we have lots of vendors cooking salmon from whom we buy fish occasionaly.
