Much like my series of corn themed posts from earlier in the year, I've decided to do a series on that ubiquitous seafood selection, salmon. Salmon can be a bit boring at times - overcooked on the grill seems to be the go-to method of preparation for people that decide they're going to eat healthier and/or restaurants that decide to offer a healthy item. And while their intentions are noble, their creativity in preparation tends to be a bit lacking. Salmon can be wonderful - very few, if any, other fish are as rich and buttery as salmon and it lends itself well to a variety of cuisines. I know it can be one of my favorite foods - I've never had sushi and not ordered it and a bagel and lox is one of my all time favorite breakfast foods.
