It's Gluten-Free Wednesday. Even if you have no intention of giving up gluten entirely, lighten it up a little with one of these three tempting salmon recipes. Each can be ready, from start to finish, in an hour or less.
Smoked salmon hash: Hash is a great option when you want something simple -- it's one-pan comfort food. In this take, combine cold-smoked salmon with butter-crisped Yukon gold potatoes, red onion, capers, fresh herbs and hints of horseradish and mustard, and serve alongside tangy creme fraiche.
Oven-steamed salmon with dill mayonnaise: If you're looking for easy, dinner doesn't get much better than oven-steamed salmon, according to Food editor Parsons. With his recipe, you simply steam salmon on a baking sheet in a 250-degree oven over a baking pan filled with boiling water. The salmon is ready in about 20 minutes, when the fish just begins to flake. While it's cooking, whisk together a quick dill mayonnaise (mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, fresh chopped dill and shallots and a little lemon juice), and you're good to go. Simple, right?
Roasted salmon with red pepper hazelnut pesto: Roasted red peppers are a perfect smoky base for this rustic sauce, brightened with a little lemon and dotted with fresh chopped chives. But it's the toasted hazelnuts that take this pesto to another level. Enticingly fragrant, they lend a wonderfully rich depth to the finished sauce. We loved this pesto served over roasted salmon, though it would pair equally well with other fish, poultry or roasted vegetables. You can find the recipe below.
