    Our boys devour salmon whenever we have it. I use foil with small piece of baking paper on it. Put salmon on it, grated fresh ginger, drizzle with soy, chinese cooking wine or Japanese vinegar ( to give acid) a few drops of sesame oil, sesame seeds, chopped spring onions, coriander, close it up and bake. Omg wow. The fresh ginger makes it.

    We try to have fresh salmon fillets at least two times a week, such a great source of omega and it's one of my kiddies favourite meal's.

    We generally just have a very hot pan and sear it on both sides to get a crispy skin and just season it with some coarse salt and pepper. I tend to not flavour salmon (unlike with other fish ie white) because it has such a distinct and strong flavour, I don't like to mask that.

    We mostly serve it up with a fresh green salad, some balsamic and cous cous and the kids just love it, yum!

I can usually substitute any chicken recipe with salmon or use blue eye cod or barramundi as well - I'm lucky I have a great local fishmonger and we go to the fish markets a lot , I never buy seafood from supermarkets as you just can't rely on it being fresh and I much prefer to buy a whole fish and either get them to fillet it or I do it

    try fish tacos - I always make it for my nieces and nephews and they love it , you can either use salmon ( just cut it into strips and fry in fry pan with a cumin, garlic and paprika and lemon juice marinade) or crumb some flathead tails ( Panko crumbs , pepper and lemon zest) and we just make guacamole, shred some lettuce, pickled red cabbage, cut up tomatoes ( or make a salsa) shredded cheese and we like the burrito wraps or use taco shells and every one can help construct their own ( I like chipotle mayo on mine or DS likes tartare sauce)
    Thanks for this great info...do you buy a whole salmon? How much would you buy for one night? Do you freeze it? Sorry for the silly questions. I'm not a huge fan of seafood so don't know the best way to prepare it.

    Honestly I've never had a bad lot of salmon from our local coles. I just ask the use by date and select the fillets I want. I spread on some squeezie herbs and sea salt flakes.and bake in oven for maybe 10/15mins. I use the Thai squeeze herbs from coles veg department. Yummo!

    When I go to the fish markets I usually buy a whole salmon and I get them to cut it into approx 250g portions, I vacuum seal them, keep a couple in the fridge for that week and freeze the rest , I freeze them individually as sometimes I only need one fillet for tacos or stir Fry's or if it's meat night for the boys I'll have a piece for me, if I go to my fish shop I usually buy as many as I need for the week ( DS and I usually share a big fillet)
