If you are a salmon lover, we have some great dishes for you with easy to follow recipes from the POTG Test Kitchen. An appetizer, a salad and a couple entree’s to try at home. When shopping for salmon, or any fish for that matter it should never smell fishy. They say when you smell fresh fish that it should remind you of a fresh ocean breeze. Salmon flesh should be firm and bright in color. Try to stay away from farmed fish and purchase wild caught whenever possible.
Having a party and need a great tasting appetizer that is also AIP? Simple, clean ingredients always deliver the best results. The bright crunch of the cucumber balances well with the creamy salmon salad, add the fresh herbs and you have a perfect spring or summer appetizer to serve your friends.
As we move through spring and into summer we tend to look to lighter meals to satisfy our appetites. In the POTG Test Kitchen Chef Ann created this delicious salad. Packed full of flavor with red onion, creamy avocado and fresh salmon. Adding blueberries gives this salad a superfood boost and make it a refreshing choice on a warm summer evening.
SWEET POTATO CRUSTED SALMON WITH LEMON DILL HOLLANDAISE
Have you made a hollandaise at home? It is one of those sauces that may seem daunting but is actually quite easy to make, don’t let it scare you. This is a tasty recipe, you can get a nice crunch on the sweet potato “crust” that pairs perfectly with the fresh salmon and the creamy hollandaise.
GRILLED SALMON OVER KALE WITH LEMON DILL SAUCE (AIP)
Simple and healthy is front and center with this dish. My favorite part of the dish is the Lemon Dill Sauce. I think I love it. Be that as it may it goes well with the Kale and adds a layer of complexity to the salmon that is delicious. This would be really good served on salmon cooked outside on the grill.
