There’s a little story behind the name of my favorite salmon recipe: When my husband, Kevin, and I couldn’t find a spicy teriyaki-style marinade to our liking, we created one in and named it Double K—for Krista and Kevin. Every time we make this flavorful fish, we get asked how we do it.
The super-fast marinade for this salmon recipe from Lenita Schafer of Princeton, Massachusetts combines maple syrup and teriyaki sauce which also creates a delicious sweet-and-sour glaze. She relates, “The salmon stays extremely moist and is really yummy.”
In my family, we love to fish. What better reward from a day of fishing than eating what you just caught? We make salmon several different ways, this one is the family favorite. —Stephanie Hanisak, Port Murray, New Jersey
One summer, I worked at a small fishing inn at River's Inlet on the coast of British Columbia, where lucky fishermen sometimes caught 60-pound spring salmon! This is a nice alternative for fixing canned salmon. It also makes excellent use of fresh asparagus. —Abby Crawford
My family likes this dish because it's a different way to enjoy the bounty of fish we have here. Two sauces—one rich, warm and cheesy, and the other light, cool and refreshing—complement the salmon nicely.—Sue Bolsinger, Anchorage, Alaska
These extra-special quesadillas take just minutes to make, but you'll want to savor them for as long as possible. Sprinkle the cheesy wedges with chopped fresh cilantro. —Daniel Shemtob, Irvine, California
There’s a bit of magic going on here: A brown sugar, mustard, soy sauce and ginger glaze is baked atop salmon to create a sweet-tangy entree. If you want to reward the family with a little something special, this recipe definitely fits the bill. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen
"I made up this quick creamy chowder one winter afternoon," recalls Tom Bailey of Golden Valley, Minnesota. "I like to use a can of red sockeye salmon for best flavor. The soup also can be seasoned with tarragon instead of dill."
"A good friend gave me this quick-and-easy recipe that uses canned salmon, wild rice and frozen broccoli," writes Brigitte Schaller of Flemington, Missouri. "I often serve this casserole with a wilted spinach salad for a complete meal."
