Salmon is a unique fish, there is no doubt. But sometimes home chefs cook the same salmon recipe over and over again. Because salmon is such a versatile fish, you really don’t have to feel intimidated by it. This type of fish leaves a lot of room for creativity in the kitchen, and each salmon preparation gives the fish its own way of showing its flavor. The most popular ways to cook this lean protein include methods such as baking, grilling, smoking, pan-frying, broiling, and roasting. But there are several alternative ways to cook salmon that are just as great.

Here are seven unique ways to prepare salmon at home. Each dish has a distinct flavor profile and is easy to prepare.
1. Salmon en Papillote
I know the name sounds fancy, but this is really a simple parchment baked salmon recipe. The secret is to cook the fish in aluminum foil while resting it on a baking sheet. This ensures the salmon is cooked perfectly and keeps the flavors at their best. And the parchment pocket steams the fish for a healthier take on oven-roasted salmon since you won’t be using any oil or butter.
The ingredients are super simple. Of course, you will need a salmon fillet and parchment paper. Then you can add the vegetables and spices of your choice. One of our favorite combinations includes asparagus, onions, garlic and shallots with lemon juice and salt and pepper. And you can make this chic salmon recipe in less than 30 minutes.
