Not being terribly "continental," we Americans tend to hit the supermarket once a week, rather than shopping for fresh stuff for dinner every day. Hence, the pantry. In your arsenal of fall-back foods to use for dinner when you can't get to the supermarket, there are undoubtedly a few cans of things designed to engender a quick family supper. Soups, undoubtedly. And tuna, most likely. Another goodie you might want to keep in stock is canned salmon. Canned pink or red salmon is even lower in calories than fresh salmon (less fat)

POACHED SALMON HAS A wonderful air of elegance on a buffet. It's every bit as elegant with smaller fillets for weeknight dinners, and makes an easy entertaining entree. This method of poaching is almost effortless. Its very gentle heat keeps the fish moist and succulent. It's equally good hot or cold.

Salmon responds well to a range of cooking methods. Classical cookery often recommends poaching whole salmon but few cooks have the unwieldy fish poacher on hand. Fortunately, there are other options which favor the more convenient fillets and steaks.With its high oil content, salmon does very well on the grill. It cabe grilled plain or bathed in a marinade. The charcoal taste is enough of a flavor enhancement but a small amount of mesquite wood mixed in with the charcoal lends a nuance.Indoors, broiling, steaming, pan cooking, baking and microwavcooking all work well with salmon.
