Easy Salmon Recipes Every Cook Should Know


I'm sharing three easy and delicious salmon recipes you can make from a large roasted salmon filet in today's video. 

I'm roasting a large filet of salmon in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees F. We will use this salmon filet to make all the recipes below. These recipes are a wonderful way to make the salmon stretch to create multiple meals. 

Salmon Quiche is a delicious and satisfying way to enjoy salmon. The quiche crust is easy to make too with a few simple ingredients.

Prep time: 20 MinCook time: 55 MinTotal time: 1 H & 15 M


Quiche Crust
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cold water
Salmon Filling
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (Swiss or Italian)
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups cooked salmon (14oz)
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbs parsley, chopped


Crust Instructions
  1. In a large bowl combine the flour and salt and mix until combined. In a separate container, combine the olive oil and cold water and whisk. Pour into the flour and mix together with a rubber spatula, and eventually knead with your hands until the dough is moist and in a ball. Press the crust into a deep dish pie pan and set aside.
Quiche Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Sauté onion and garlic in butter in a small skillet until slightly brown. Place the cooked onions and garlic in the bottom of the prepared crust. Flake the cooked salmon with your fork and place on top of the onions. Sprinkle cheese on top of salmon (reserving some of the cheese to sprinkle on top). Place the sliced tomatoes on top.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, parsley, salt and pepper; pour over salmon mixture. Top with an extra sprinkling of cheese. Bake at 350° for 50- 55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold. This makes a great breakfast as well.

Creamy Salmon Angel Hair Pasta
has spinach, capers, lemon, cream... What's not to like? My daughters asks for this dish again and again.

Yield: 8
This delicious pasta has a creamed spinach taste and the added salmon and capers make it delightful.


  • 12 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 2 - 3 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of roasted garlic (optional)
  • 1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 salmon fillets, cooked
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1-1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • Juice of one lemon
  • A small handful of parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbs capers
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Boil water for pasta and cook according to the package directions. Add spinach in the boiling water one minute before pasta is finished cooking. Drain pasta and spinach and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, sauté onions and roasted garlic in olive oil in a skillet on medium heat until the onion is browned. Add cream, wine, capers, lemon zest, and half a squeezed lemon (reserve the other half for a final topping), chopped parsley, salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes on low heat, until sauce is thickened. Add the flaked salmon. Stir to combine. Add the cooked pasta and spinach. Top with extra lemon juice and parmesan cheese, if desired.

Sesame Salmon Lunch Bowl
This is an easy way to serve leftover salmon. Use whatever vegetables and fruits you have on hand. The key is in the dressing. I love the sesame dressing from Yo Mama's

Use your favorite toppings on this delicious and easy-to-assemble salmon bowl.


  • Rice, cooked (white, brown, or any kind you prefer)
  • Cooked salmon
  • Sesame or Teriyaki marinade or sauce
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Mango, peeled and sliced
  • Cucumber, sliced
  • Carrot, sliced
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Cilantro and chopped green onion (optional)
  • Sesame seeds for topping


  1. There are no measurements in this recipe as it depends on how many bowls you are making. Fill each bowl with desired amount of rice. In a separate container, mix cooked salmon with desired sauce (sesame and teriyaki sauces work well here... Use 1 to 2 Tbs per salmon filet). In an attractive manner, lay the toppings on top of the rice in "stripes". Drizzle extra sauce on top. Top with chopped cilantro and sliced green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!

Comment of the Week
Linda writes, "Love your books and videos. You are a gem in this world of crassness. Thank you! I have been doing IF naturally forever. When I was younger, I took a lot of harassment about not eating breakfast or skipping lunch if I eat a brunch — basically follow a 2-meal plan and rarely snack. I also serve dinner at 5:00-5:00 and always have done. So it’s wonderful to receive validation for what I intrinsically knew. I weigh what I did in high school, moderately exercise daily, and eat healthy (cut the sugar!!). Having meaningful activities that stimulates you is important too. I am 69 and never sick and on NO medication. Neither is my husband, 76, and he credits me for the compliments we receive about how young and vital we look. Life is very good."

Hi Linda, thank you for your comment. I enjoyed reading about your health plan at 69. May you and your husband continue to enjoy great health!

I hope you enjoyed today's video. If you make the salmon dishes, let us know how they turned out. Also, let us know what your favorite salmon recipe is. Your comment could be chosen as comment of the week.

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you so much for these delicious recipes. I am sorry to tell you that my husband of 19 years passed away about ten days ago. He was a big fan of salmon, and I am going to prepare your salmon quiche to serve at the celebration of his life. Your videos are helping me to find joy during this time of transition.

Warm best wishes to you and yours,

With my best wishes,

My family loves salmon, thank you for three new recipes! When I saw your "rustic" quiche crust I knew I could do this, I don't like to spend a long time fussing over a crust that will be covered up. It's very stressful and time-consuming for me! I am making the quiche tonight, stress-free. Hopefully there will be a slice left for breakfast tomorrow.
