Recipe: Jacques Pépin’s Broiled Salmon with Miso Glaze
Our meal plan this week is from one of our favorite chefs, Jacques Pépin, and it starts out with this super-simple salmon recipe. When I spoke with Jacques, he mentioned this recipe multiple times as one of his favorites and how he loves incorporating ingredients from different cuisines together. Jacques says, “I have both baked and grilled miso-glazed salmon, but I find that broiling it gives a great result and is also the easiest way to cook it.

Recipe: Seared Salmon with Soy, Scallions, and Ginger
Coming from a Cantonese background on my father’s side, I’m no stranger to seafood dishes involving copious amounts of scallions and ginger. It is absolutely one of the best flavor combinations known to man. Traditionally, scallions and ginger are often made into a paste with oil and salt and served with chicken, or stir-fried with shrimp, lobster, or crab.

Recipe: Jicama Shrimp Salad
Take a vacation south of the border on your lunch break when you pack yourself this chopped jicama and shrimp salad. It is a feast for the eyes, with a rainbow of cheery colors and textures. I’ve always had a thing for composed salads, where the ingredients are artfully laid out on top of the salad greens and then drizzled with dressing before serving — no tossing.

Recipe: Tangy Millet Bowl with Breaded Garlic Shrimp
Sometimes I crave corn in the winter. It comes without warning and, well, without corn. This year, though, I turned to my freezer both to satisfy my off-season hankering and to make a summery grain bowl I can eat any time of the year. Starting with a bed of mildly nutty millet, the corn is alongside broiled shrimp with a crispy, garlicky breading and topped with a tangy parsley-yogurt sauce and toasted almonds.

Recipe: Smoked Salmon Soba Noodle Salad
I’ve always loved eating Japanese soba noodles in soup, but these chewy noodles also make for a great cold or room-temperature salad. Soba soaks up dressing readily, while still keeping its texture. Thanks to that sturdiness and versatility, it’s a great base for experimentation with a number of mix-ins. In this rendition, the surprise ingredient is silky smoked salmon.

Recipe: Shrimp and Avocado Po’ Boys
Whenever I see a seafood po’ boy on a restaurant menu, I’m usually tempted to order it because I’m such a fan of the combination of crispy fried seafood, cool lettuce, and creamy mayo on a soft roll. A deep-fried po’ boy is not usually something I’d attempt in my own kitchen, but this version of it — with quickly sautéed shrimp — is easy enough to throw together on a busy weeknight.

Recipe: Garlicky Shrimp Scampi
“Forrest Gump” is one of my favorite food movies. What? You don’t think it’s a food movie? It’s totally a food movie. It gave the world Bubba, and gave voice to my love of shrimp. I had never related to a character until I witnessed The Shrimp Speech by one Benjamin Buford “Bubba” Blue. So much shrimp; so many possibilities. Steamed shrimp, shrimp gumbo, shrimp patties, shrimp and grits — all unequivocally satisfying.

What’s the Difference Between Farmed and Wild Salmon?
There are so many food production concerns these days, whether it’s about pesticides, GMOs, or sustainable meat or fish. It’s nearly impossible to tackle them all and tackle them successfully — especially when the best answer isn’t always clear. And that’s exactly the case when it comes to choosing between farmed and wild salmon. If you’ve come across the topic before, you know that it’s one that’s been hotly debated.

5 Essential Tips for Buying and Cooking Salmon Like a Pro
Salmon is the darling, do-it-all fish of the seafood section. It delivers when you need a quick and simple weeknight meal, knows how to pull its weight as the star of a dinner party, and can even be a hands-off affair. This is the kind of fish you can rely on. Even if it has a regular place in your dinner lineup, here are five helpful tips to keep in your back pocket. Despite what you may have been told, the color of the flesh does not necessarily indicate a better piece of fish.

Recipe: 30-Minute Green Curry Braised Salmon
This recipe is the poster child of the perfect weeknight meal. It’s fast (done in 30 minutes); cooks in one pot, so cleanup is minimal; and it takes a familiar ingredient, in this case salmon, and makes it feel fresh and new. All that might seem like a tall order for a recipe, but this dish of braised salmon rises to the occasion quite deliciously. Weeknight braising isn’t often an option unless you got your act together the night before and put the slow cooker on in the morning.

Recipe: Crispy Salmon Skin
Diane Morgan says there are two types of salmon eaters: the ones who like to eat crisp salmon skin and the ones who think eating the skin in any form is disgusting. I think it’s more like those who love salmon skin (the camp in which I am firmly planted) and those who haven’t experienced it at its best — ultra-crispy and cooked separate from the salmon itself until it tastes like, well, bacon. Yep, I’m pulling the bacon card.

What’s That Weird Stuff Coming Out of Salmon?
You went to the store, bought yourself a gorgeous, pinky-red fillet of salmon, came home and cooked it just like the recipe said, and all of a sudden this white, filmy gunk has begun to seep out of your beautiful fish. Not cool salmon, not cool. So, what exactly is this stuff? What causes it to show up, and is there anything you can do to prevent it? Alright, let’s get straight to it. The white stuff (or albumin) is coagulated protein, not fat, which in my opinion is a relief.

Recipe: Caesar Shrimp and Avocado Noodle Bowls
These bowls, which are ideal for a weeknight meal, are inspired by the ease and versatility of noodle bowls, with the tangy lemon and Parmesan flavor combo you get from a bold Caesar dressing. Thin vermicelli rice noodles are my favorite way to change up grain and rice bowls, particularly right now in the hot summer months. These light noodles can be served at an array of temperatures, although this recipe is best with room-temperature, or even chilled, rice noodles.

Yes, You Can Cure Your Own Salmon at Home
Want to make your own lox at home? It’s actually a lot easier than you’d think. All you need is some vodka, salt, sugar, and spices — oh, and a little time. Curing salmon means planning ahead. If you want to serve slices of the lox as part of a brunch spread (with bagels and cream cheese) this weekend, you need to start making it today.

Recipe: Vietnamese-Style Shrimp Po’ Boy
Imagine, if you will, fresh Gulf shrimp, juicy and aromatic with coriander and lime, combined with all the pickled goodness of a bánh mì sandwich, slathered with a spicy-sweet mayonnaise and enveloped in a po’ boy bun. This is the Vietnamese-inspired po’ boy that we fell in love with in New Orleans’ French Quarter and the one we’re sharing here today.

Cook Your Salmon in Foil for Tender, Flaky Results
Sometimes cooking a big piece of fish can be intimidating. Is it undercooked? Overcooked? Just right? Luckily there’s an almost foolproof method for cooking fish that takes the stress out of the whole endeavor: foil packets! Cooking salmon (or any fish) in foil is smart for a few reasons. First, it helps lock in steam and moisture, which prevents your fish from overcooking and drying out. It also makes cleanup a breeze!

Recipe: Ginger and Soy Glazed Salmon Fillets
Moist, tender salmon is a beautiful thing. Dry, flavorless fish, on the other hand, only leaves us weeping for what might have been.

Ovens like the Bosch Steam Convection Oven ensure we can prepare the clean, satisfying meals we want (and dare say deserve) with speed and ease.

Turn Your Leftover Sweet Potatoes Into Something New for Dinner
While I don’t know anyone who considers leftover sweet potatoes a problem, I want to share a tip for giving them a spectacular second life. Three words: whipped sweet potatoes. Here’s what to do: Peel and puree any leftover cooked sweet potatoes and whisk them in a pan over medium heat with a generous amount of butter and a splash of heavy cream. Sprinkle in a couple pinches of salt and you’ve got whipped sweet potatoes.

From the Ocean to the Smokehouse: Preserving Salmon in Alaska
It was raining on the day I visited Kim Moler’s home in Kake, Alaska. This should not have been unusual, given that this part of Southeast Alaska gets over 100 inches of rain every year. But the sky had been dry for weeks, and residents were grateful for the muddy puddles and the chance to fill their water tanks.Why was I in Kake that morning? I was there to watch Kim fillet a dozen wild sockeye salmon to string up in her backyard smokehouse. A dozen, you say? At least.

“I’ll take a salmon BLT, hold the bacon, lettuce, and tomato. And as many extra lemon slices as you will give me.” Yep, that was my go-to lunch order at our favorite little hometown cafe.

(Okay, I secretly bought it for me, too, but don’t tell him that.
