Help! I had my hopes up about salmon,but no matter how I prepare it I still don't like it.. Any thoughts? It seems that every restaurant serves salmon as a healthy option when I go out with the family,but I can't get through the first couple bites. Does anybody have a tastier way to enjoy it? Is it just an acquired taste? Help, I am very frustrated here

I LOVE salmon! How have you had it prepared? Foil cooking? Grilled? Broil? Do you have a preference? I will check out my family cookbooks and see what I can come up with...bear with me. In the meantime, let me know what you don't like about what you have eaten so far. Some have sauces, some don't. I don't want to post a recipe you wouldn't like. Hang in there!

I do love my salmon, it was my first meal as solids, well 2 bites anyway until I was full.

My favorite way is to grill it on a cedar plank, top it with brown sugar and let it go. For as little as we eat the brown sugar really adds few calories.

Something easier is to poach it with fresh herbs, especially dill and lemon. You can wrap it in foil in the oven and bake it or do it on the stovetop just keep adding some liquid like water or een white wine to keep it moist.

Hope you can get a good recipe that's easy and you'll enjoy it!1

I think it's just the salmon itself that I don't like. I can't put my finger on it. I can't tell if it's the texture or just the taste itself. I am so disapointed. I really had my hopes up for this one

Hey BigDaddy! I will find some recipes and post then for you and you try them. I've done what Julie had done with the foil. The lemon and dill was a great compliment to this fish. I haven't tried the brown sugar as I never really thought to have it sweetened, but would try it to see how it tastes...thanks Julie for the suggestion.

I don't like it cooked all the way. I cook it on the rare side, so it is very tender and not dry. Salmon drys out worse than any other fish!

I think it is an aquired taste, but like Jude mentioned, there are several ways of prepping or adding flavor... I buy mine at our local Sam's Club (I'm not sure if you have one near you) but it comes in a yellow box...(I can't remember the name right now, but maybe tomorrow I can get the name of it) Anyway, you take the pre-packaged individually wrapped fillet and bake it, it's already completely seasoned and prepped for you. I have it with steamed carrots or green beans, which makes it nice and light. You can try it with salsa, cheese sauces, wine sauces, lemon sauce, orange sauce, etc...

Here's a recipe I found online:

Salmon patties:

Ingredients:

1 can (approx. 7 ounces) salmon

1 egg

1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 onion diced

olive oil, enough to cover bottom of skillet

1 Fresh lemon

Preparation:

Remove skin and bones from salmon; drain well. In mixing bowl, combine with egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and onion. Make patties about 2 inches in diameter; fry in oil until brown on both sides about 10 minutes.

Sprinkle salmon patties with salt. Cut and squeeze fresh lemon on pattie before or after cooking.
