Easy salmon dinner recipes you should have on hand. From air fryer to sheet pan recipes, to healthy and indulgent, these recipes are sure to please your dinner crowd.
Quick-click table of contents:
Never wonder what to make with that beautiful salmon filet you bought at the store! I have collected these dinner recipes so you have a one-stop search to flex your seafood-cooking-skills.
From simple grilled seafood, seared fish recipes on the stovetop, sheet pan dinners from the oven or stir-fry, and tacos, salmon is so versatile.
Each recipe will explain the cooking technique and pair this delicious seafood with fun flavor combinations.
Easy cooking tips:
Salmon should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145ºF, measured at the thickest part of the filet. That is the recommendation from the FDA.
Use my favorite thermometer to quickly check the internal temperature. And, if you like it a bit less cooked, pull it out of the oven or off the skillet at about 135ºF. It will continue to cook slightly after it's removed from the heat.
I've included some of my Tara Teaspoon favorites as well:

Live Life Deliciously Cookbook Reviews
A Cookbook Adventure That No Kitchen Should Be Without
Tara's passion for cooking and entertaining paired with her exceptional professional experience make for a cookbook adventure that no kitchen should be without. It's the perfect companion for those essential, everyday recipes, while also an incredible cooking exploration of new pantry staples equally fit for special occasions or lazy weekends. Page after page, there's not one recipe in this book I can't wait to bring to life in my own kitchen again.
Loving the variety of this cookbook!
Ok, first of all - Jalapeño Cornmeal Waffles with Carnitas and Crema - OMG so good. Reminds me of Mexico with each bite. Each recipe I try has turned out so well (even I can make these amazing dishes). And the photography, all those collection images at the beginning of every chapter make me want to go start collecting. For me, a not so experienced "chef", the section about items to stock in my pantry were really helpful and there are tips with every recipe. One of the best cookbooks I've purchased. I'll be cooking my way through this for months.
Modern Yet Comfortingly Familiar
Having known Tara for more than 20 years, and her knack for polished and approachable cooking, I can see her passion and contagious love of food shine through in her debut cookbook. Tara has been teaching people how to create joy in the kitchen for as long as I've known her, and LIVE LIFE DELICIOUSLY brings her style of modern yet comfortingly familiar recipes right to your hands. Both serious and casual cooks will find success and cooking joy by following her simple but impressive takes on classics and flavorful creations.
A Foodie Lover's Cookbook!
Cooking has always been a creative outlet for me. And my wife loves that I enjoy it! I've tried at least a dozen recipes in this book. I just have to say I've never found so many five star recipes in one cookbook. And by five stars I mean recipes that are huge hits with my family, especially our picky teenagers. Seriously, I have two teens that never liked lasagna. I told them they had to take one bite of the Pester Sausage Deep Dish Lasagna. They ended up having two serving!!! And the Garlic-Lime Cuban Carnitas were sent from heaven! Sooo good. And I love "Tara's Tips." I wasn't able to find sumac (still on the hunt) but the lemon zest worked. Thanks! Oh, and I LOVE Tara's personal narrative at the beginning of each recipe. These stories and insights make me feel like Tara is my personal cooking coach!!! Seriously, this is the foodie lovers cookbook that anyone can follow. I am NOT an expert in the kitchen, but Tara makes me look like one.
YES! YES! YES!
I've been using Tara's blog, Tara Teaspoon, for years, so you can imagine my excitement to get my hands on her very first cookbook! Her recipes are full of flavor, easy to follow, satisfy every eater in the house, and are delicious to boot! Perfect for everyday meals, special occasions, and will make you look like a pro. You will LOVE this cookbook!
Gourmet Tastes That Are EASY To Make!
I so appreciate the simplicity of these recipes - somehow Tara can make gourmet tastes so accessible to me!
The Best Tutor
Tara's cookbook has been the best thing to happen to me for a long time. When I cook from it, I feel like she's there in the kitchen with me, walking me through each step, explaining the reason for each ingredient, mentoring me. I've tried several of her recipes so far and they've instantly become some new favorites among my family and friends. They're surprisingly easy to replicate while still getting me out of my comfort zone and trying new things. The Thai Meatball Golden Coconut Curry and the Cheese-and-Herb Potato Gratin have really elevated our dinners lately. I can't recommend this book enough!
