Recipe substitution for salmon?

Postby JustinD » Fri Feb 24, 2012 10:05 am

I was going to make walnut crusted salmon for my wife on her birthday, but she said she wont eat salmon anymore because she was grossed out by it when we had baked salmon while she was pregnant. Is the another fish comparable to salmon that I can substitute for it?

What exactly do you mean by comparable?

We eat a lot of pecan crusted walleye, not much is like salmon....
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

If you are looking for flavor there is no replacement. The problem with swapping out fish is that they all cook a little differently.
I might go with halibut just because it is a little firmer. Just adjust your cooking times and add more spices. Most salmon recipes highlight the flavor of the fish - if you do a straight replacement with a less flavorful fish you'll end up with a boring meal.
All this for a bowl of borscht.
