favorite, simple salmon dish
I'm making some food for a good friend who recently had major surgery. She doesn't have any specific dietary restrictions, but generally eats pretty fresh and clean. One of her favorite foods is salmon. I love fish and seafood, but actually hate salmon myself, so don't have any regular dishes I make. I'm going to deliver it to her pre-cooked, so looking for something that can be rewarmed easily (I know, not always ideal with fish) and/or eaten cold/room temp. Any great recommendations? Thanks.

Poach or steam a fairly thick piece of salmon till just done. Make a sauce of mayo or yogurt with a dab or mustard or curry powder. Best served cold.
Make a sandwich of peppered smoked salmon and cole slaw on an english muffin.
Just heat it enough to take off the chill, not so much to cook the fish more.
Of course, some fish dishes are more amenable to reheating than others but to categorically say that you can't reheat fish ignores the fact that perhaps a billion people on this planet will have some sort of reheated cooked fish this week.
The people who say not to reheat cooked fish simply aren't all that experienced fish cooks.
I've made this with tilapia as well and it was good.
It can certainly be made ahead and just blanch whatever vegetables are in season.
