This is one of the most easy fish recipes to choose if you fancy combining salmon, potatoes and a few other mouthwatering ingredients to make a salmon casserole recipe. You will need a salmon filet for this, as well as sliced potatoes, citrus juice and seasonings.

You can leave off the grated cheddar cheese if you do not want to use it, but the sharp taste of the cheddar is great with this dish. If you do like cheese, just not cheddar, feel free to switch it for mozzarella. You can sprinkle it over the finished casserole instead of adding it before cooking, if you prefer the cheese only just melted, rather than crispy and golden brown.

Salmon takes a lot less time to cook the potatoes, so you will need to slice the potatoes and bake them at a high temperature for a while, before turning the temperature down and adding the fish. The citrus mixture added at the end gives the meal a nice sheen and the orange and lemon juices are lovely with the salmon. The thyme and basil also add an aromatic touch and suit the style of the dish.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
