Salmon contains a whole lot of good-for-you nutrients and fats. The dinner mainstay can also turn almost any ingredients–noodles, greens, or a sandwich–into a completely satisfying and all-around nutritious dinner. Here are seven of the salmon-based suppers we’ve sent out to members recently. Try one tonight!
1. Ginger-Soy Glazed Salmon with Broccoli Rabe & Soba Noodles
Black bean paste–made from fermented soybeans–form the base of a tangy, zesty glaze for a satisfying salmon recipe that pairs the fish with broccoli rabe and soba noodles.
2. Salmon Rolls
When in doubt, make it a sandwich. That might have ben the original thought behind classic New England seafood sandwiches, and we’re happy to get on board this culinary tradition.
3. Bronzed Salmon with Orange Marmalade & Israeli Couscous
The winner of 2013’s Mother’s Day contest, this recipe comes to Blue Apron from a reader…well, actually her mother. Though you wouldn’t expect to top fish with marmalade, the combination of ingredients really works to set this dish apart from the usual pairings.
4. Maple & Ginger Glazed Salmon with Watercress-Parsnip Salad
A crisp salad of greens mixed up with crunchy parsnips sits beside this ultra flavorful piece of fish. Yum!
5. Salmon Caesar Salad
The original recipe for Caesar Salad was invented one evening in Tijuana when a chef’s supplies were running low. That version didn’t include anchovies, and neither does ours–we top the greens and croutons with salmon instead.
6. Salmon Pastrami on Rye
This salmon version of the New York City classic uses the same distinctive spice rub that makes beef pastrami meat great: a blend of brown sugar, coriander, ground mustard, black pepper and paprika. The salmon is then tucked between toasty bread slices with Russian dressing and a bright slaw.
7. Provençal Fish Stew
When fishermen in the south of France returned home from a long day of fishing, they wanted to create a delicious dish without using the most profitable fish of the day’s catch: the result of that desire is this stew. You can use any fish, but we love including salmon on the ingredient roster.
