In Norway, where I was born, finding salmon on the dinner table was quite common and this delicious and nutritious seafood was and still is prepared in numerous creative ways.
My father's hobby was fishing for salmon and that was the one and only fish he was interested in catching.
I remember one particular morning, he brought home an enormous salmon, I think it was about 17 kilos, which is about 37.5 pounds - it was huge. Of course, mom had a lot of work on her hands, and we ended up with a great amount of delicious salmon in our freezer. Here is one of the ways mom prepared salmon.
Yogurt Dill Sauce, a great companion:
Lemon butter for redskins:
Steam fresh green beans, carrots, and redskin potatoes.
Spoon lemon butter over potatoes and then sprinkle chopped chives. Serve Dill Sauce on the side.
Bingo - you have a tasty and appetizing dinner.
A side note:
You probably think: "These Norwegian sure eat a lot of seafood" and you're right, we do.
It pays off in health benefits, and not to brag or anything - we Norwegians are pretty good at preparing fish also :-) (Brag Brag).
It is a known fact that the combination of being active and eating a healthy diet with a great amount of seafood, fruits, vegetables, legumes, seeds, and nut makes a person healthier.
I always freeze the fish stock when poaching fish. The stock can be used later for fish soup, bisque or sauces. Better than bullion cubes, right?
