Grilled Paprika Salmon with Tzatziki

I recently revisited an old recipe for Sautéed Chicken Breasts with Tarragon which involves a deliciously simple paprika and curry powder spice rub for the chicken.  I wanted to make a similar marinade for salmon, and so I found this flavorful recipe for a Moroccan spice-crusted salmon with tzatziki online.  The spiced salmon is grilled (I used my grill … Continue reading

Technically I guess these Salmon Burgers aren’t super Eastern Blok-y, with the bok choy … Continue reading

Salmon Rillettes

Jen and I first tried salmon rillettes at one of our favorite brunch spots in New York, Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery. We decided to make a version of it for a party we hosted — we wanted a bunch of finger foods that were easy to serve as well as easy to make and salmon … Continue reading
