Now I'll admit, fresh salmon isn't as cheap as Stromboli or spaghetti. But there will come a time when you want to impress someone with your college cooking skills.
Here we'll explore several cooking methods and ways to flavor salmon beyond lemon and butter (and this can apply to other species of fish too). I'll even show you what to look for at the grocer.
Green Salmon: Dredged in pesto and baked.
Yellow Salmon: My girlfriend's favorite seasoning blend - cooked in/on a pan or griddle.
Red Salmon: Still looking for more uses for salsa. Steamed with red wine.
You could argue that this is not a college meal... Well, I'm in college and it's my meal - a special one too ;) While it may be on the more technical side, I'm breaking it down to maximize success.
