8 of the best Mary Berry salmon recipes 


Salmon is one of the nation's favourite ingredients, and it's one of Mary's too. Across her cookbooks, Mary has taught us that versatile salmon pairs just as well with creamy sauces as it does with bright, zingy flavours, and is equally enjoyable pan-fried, poached or baked into a pie, or served simply on a bed of spinach. From comforting midweek dinners to show-stopping centrepieces for a celebratory dinner, here are 8 of our favourite salmon recipes from Mary Berry.

Salmon and Fennel One-Pot Wonder from Simple Comforts by Mary Berry

Salmon, fennel and shallots are a tasty trio in this simple, healthy family dinner. If you’re not keen on fennel, Mary recommends swapping in a medium thinly sliced leek instead. Cooked in a creamy sauce, this is a great way to use up a pack of salmon fillets for a midweek dinner.

Poached Side of Salmon with Asparagus and Brown Shrimps from Classic by Mary Berry 

This eye-catching dish is made for sharing. Poach your salmon in a tinfoil bag in the oven with white wine and lemon juice until gloriously tender, then serve with asparagus, slices of radish or mirco herbs. Mary recommends asking your fishmonger to prep the salmon so it's nicely trimmed and pin-boned, then "there is very little to do, except serving it up and impressing your guests", she says.
