We don’t like to play favorites, but we admit that we have a special love for salmon, especially on weeknights. It’s delicious, easy to prepare and, oh, those omega-3s! Plus, our favorite fish is totally versatile, adapting to almost any flavor profile, so basically everything goes well on the side. But still, sometimes it’s hard to decide what to serve next to the main course. Here, 20 tasty side dishes for salmon.
Salmon is high in healthy fats, so a tart, citrusy salad always works well to cut the richness.

On a hot night, all we crave is some poached or grilled salmon and this crisp, cool salad.
Another winner for a soy- or ginger-glazed salmon recipe.
This twist on a classic will change summer patio dinners forever.
This quick pasta is one of our go-to weeknight meals. And used as a side? We’ll eat it all week.
