What Side Dishes Go With Salmon?

Salmon is affordable, versatile and easy to prepare. Salmon is nutritious, too. It is low in calories and contains omega-3 fatty acids, which doctor's recommend for good health.

Try Salmon with Couscous

Quick cooking varieties—ready in about five minutes when you pour water over it and let it sit covered—are available at your local grocer or farmer's market. Couscous is available plain or in a variety of flavors, including roasted garlic, pine nut, wild mushroom and sun dried tomato.

Salmon and Spinach Pair Well

If time is of the essence, consider buying bagged, prewashed spinach. Saute with a little olive oil and garlic; finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Avocado with Salmon is Great for Lunch

Poached or steamed salmon is delicious with a ripe avocado. Slice the avocado and serve with a few lemon or lime slices, or a teaspoon of olive oil.

Try a Green Salad

Salmon pairs perfectly with greens of all kinds. If you are watching your waistline, use dressing sparingly.

Serve Salmon with Pasta Alfredo

For an elegant meal, salmon can be served with a creamy Alfredo sauce and pasta. Alfredo sauce contains cream, garlic, butter and cheese.
