Salmon is one of my favorite fishes to eat. Not only is it flavorful and hearty, it’s really good for you—lots of omega-3’s and all that.  But the best reason to love salmon is because of its versatility.  It can be sweet, sour, salty, spicy—whatever floats your boat!
 
That’s why I get so upset when I see so many websites touting “gourmet recipes” that highlight incredibly pedestrian ingredients for salmon, or even going out to dinner in lieu of cooking. The other night, I went to a lovely high-end restaurant in Malibu. They had salmon on the menu, so I ordered it.
