Salmon is probably one of my favorite seafood dishes. But I have to admit I struggled with it a little the first trimester of my pregnancy. Now I totally get what people who don’t like salmon are tasting!
But not all salmon tastes super fishy, or at least it’s not supposed to. Unless you have super sensitive taste (I couldn’t eat anything that wasn’t incredibly bland for quite a while), chances are, what you need is fresher fish and a good marinade that has some acidic/vinegar component to it. These two things make or break a salmon recipe.
If you have had bad salmon in the past and have decided you don’t like it, try out these two tips and see if you don’t change your mind.
If you don’t live anywhere close to an ocean, your best bet is to get frozen wild caught salmon, not the stuff from the fish counter at the grocery store. Most frozen salmon is frozen close to the site it was caught, which makes it much fresher than anything that’s been sitting at the meat counter all day.
This is one of my favorite quick and easy salmon recipes, and has a yummy Asian flare to it. Enjoy!
