Spicy Twists to Salmon Staples

Let’s face it, we’re all looking for ways to incorporate more fish dishes into our diet and salmon is a fish likely to please everyone around the dinner table. But keeping things interesting at mealtime can be challenging. Sometimes just adding the right spice or herb can bring out the best of a core ingredient such as salmon. So if salmon is your starting point today, here are a few ideas for spicing it up:

Ginger: A simple ingredient that brings out so much flavor, ginger enhances both sweet and savory dishes and complements salmon particularly well as seen in this recipe for Honey-Ginger Baked Salmon with Jasmine Rice.

Basil: Known for its long tradition of adding zing to Mediterranean dishes, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how well this fresh spring herb goes with salmon in this recipe for Salmon Panzanella.

Turmeric: From the same root family as ginger, turmeric has long been a staple in Asian cuisine. Zesty, fresh and flavorsome, turmeric doesn’t overwhelm a dish like other spices can, and works delightfully well in this recipe for Salmon Rice Bowl with Turmeric Yogurt Drizzle.
