Lemon Grilled Salmon With Corn Salad
This is a recipe I tagged to make for a game that I play on recipezaar as it sounded a little different from the usual salmon recipes. I am so glad I did as it was delicious, the corn salad was so light and refreshing and complimented the salmon so well. I also loved the combination of the cumin, lemon zest and paprika used on the fillet itself. To read more reviews on this recipe or to view more photos please click here.

Salmon Burgers/Patties With a Herb Sauce
I made these the other night as I had some salmon to use up and served them over salad it made for a delicious meal. I also made a sour cream herb sauce to accompany them using up some fresh herbs on my fridge. I cooked these on the stove top in a pan but they would also work on the BBQ just as well. You could also serve them in burger buns with some lettuce tomato and avocado.
