Delish Logo By Dora Villarosa, Camille Lowder of Delish | Slide 1 of 24: Whether you're baking, grilling, or poaching salmon, you can't forget about the sides. Luckily, super-versatile salmon is easy to pair with veggies, grains, pasta and more. These are some of our favorites— they're easy to make and add a nice balance of veggies and carbs to your plate so you can enjoy salmon year-round.To start, figure out the way you’re going to cook and flavor your salmon. If you find the pink, flaky fish intimidating, don’t stress: check out our guide to the best, foolproof salmon cooking methods that will make you feel like a pro. If you’re interested in pairing with veggies, look for what’s in season. We love hitting a farmer’s market and roasting whatever we find that looks good, even (especially) if it’s new to us. Is the weather nice out? Take your salmon out to your BBQ grill, and cook your veggies right alongside. Planning to bake your salmon? Roast some potato coins or feta pasta too, and your meal will come together without you having to be stuck over the stovetop. Having an Asian-inspired meal? Pair your (teriyaki, maybe?) salmon with spicy chili cucumbers or miso-glazed carrots to keep with the theme. Salmon makes a nice pairing with comfort food in colder months too. Your whole family will love it with cheesy broccoli pasta or mashed potatoes (even mashed “faux”-tatoes, like our parsnip puree). Salmon can really go with anything, so invigorate this weeknight dinner staple by switching up its accompaniments and you'll fall in love with this healthy fish all over again.Looking for more salmon ideas? Try our grilled salmon recipes, smoked salmon recipes, or easy ideas for using canned salmon.
