12 Salmon Recipes Perfect For Fall

This week our dedicated network of food bloggers share their favorite salmon recipes to try this fall

Seared Salmon With Red Curry Vegetables// A Calculated Whisk

Wild-caught Alaskan salmon is still in season this October so for this week’s recipe SWAT (Sharing With A Theme) we asked The Daily Meal’s dedicated team of food bloggers to share their favorite salmon recipes for perfect for fall.

As the weather turns chilly, meals become slightly heavier thus this week’s winning recipes feature warm dishes with some of the best flavors of the season.

Cooking fish, for some, may seem a little daunting; fish flesh is delicate and it is easy to over or under-cook it. However, salmon is a fish even non-fish lovers can love and the methods in which to cook it are varied and surprisingly easy. Grilled, baked, poached, broiled, or sautéed, once the fish turns slightly opaque throughout you are good to go. One note of advice for pan-sautéing: Hot pan, cold oil. Heat the pan to the desired temperature before adding cold oil followed by the fish fillet (begin with skin side down) to avoid sticking.

Without further ado, here are this week’s SWAT winners.
