Since childhood, salmon has been a favorite of mine. I usually prepare this fish as salmon croquettes. They're simple to prepare and great to serve with a variety of sides: mashed potatoes, garlic linguine or raw vegetable salad.
I try to serve a salmon dish each week. I have found many recipes, some are quick to prepare and others require more time and finesse in the kitchen.
Salmon is a fish that can be purchased fresh or canned. Some cooks prefer to remove the bones from the meat -- but I am not in that class. I crush the bones into the fish for more calcium. With the variety of salmon recipes, finding the sides will be your toughest decision as the salmon will be a self-seller.
