Salmon is a real crowd pleaser. It's one of those fish that even people who don't really like seafood will eat now and then. Out of all the fish in the sea, it's the most popular -- no question.

In an attempt to remedy this pickle, we hunted -- and found -- interesting salmon recipes and gathered them for you below.
