Get skin-on salmon steaks. Roll flesh side in Herbes de Provence with a pinch of dried orange peel and cloves. Sear in a hot frying pan in hot grapeseed oil until a crust forms. The herb crust should be nice and brown. Transfer to a rack placed over a sheet pan, and dot with butter. Finish in 375ºF oven for 5-10 minutes or until done to your liking. Can be seared ahead of time then finished in the oven before dinner....great for company.

Oh and on the side: boil chunks of peeled celery root in milk and half of an onion; drain, add knob of butter and puree until it is the consistency of mashed potatoes; salt to taste.

The recipes and recommendations above are wonderful. And please get caught salmon and not farmed salmon. Aside from not being healthy, farmed salmon are mushy and don't have the flavor.

Mix together creme fraiche, grain mustard, lemon juice. Top salmon with the skin side down. Broil till slightly brown and salmon is cooked. YUM and healthy:)

Use wild caught, not farm raised for the best flavor. This recipe is from an Atkins book, passed on to me. Easy and tasty.
1/4 c macadamia nuts
1/4 c fresh cilantro
4 T butter, divided - room temp
1 tsp grated lemon rind
2 1/2 lb Salmon filet
Salt and pepper
1 T lemon juice
Heat oven to 450 degrees. In a food processor, process nuts and cilantro until finely chopped. Add 3 T butter and lemon rind. Pulse until combined.
Grease a jelly roll pan with remaining butter. Place salmon in pan, flesh side up. Season with salt and pepper. Rub cilantro/nut butter over flesh. Roast 11 to 15 minutes. Drizzle with lemon juice. Yum!
