Salmon are as iconic a fish of the West as you can imagine. From the fisheries of Alaska to the rivers of Idaho, from the First Nations peoples who’ve caught and preserved them for thousands of years to the Seattle fishmongers who toss them back and forth like small children, salmon are essential to our history, image, and dining habits. Also: They’re delicious and healthy! Over the years we’ve published dozens, possibly hundreds, of salmon recipes, but here we’ve rounded up our favorites, sure to please no matter how you like your fish cooked.
