Smoked salmon trimmings can be absolutely delicious if paired with the right kind of seasoning, but those new to cooking fish can often come unstuck because they aren’t sure what goes with what. There’s no need to be unadventurous in the kitchen – here are some herbs and spices that go really well with salmon.


Because salmon is so tasty on its own, you can keep it simple with a little bit of salt and pepper, and you’ll still end up with an amazing dish that you’ll want to make again and again. But spices can really take your fish dish to another level, so consider using spices like chili powder, cumin or cayenne pepper to add some depth of flavour.

Alternatively, if you’re not that into spicy food, rifle through the cupboards to find something like cloves or cinnamon, which will also make for a delicious meal.


As you leaf through recipe books, you’ll see that fresh herbs often make an appearance when it comes to cooking wild salmon. Fresh dill always works wonders, as does basil, parsley, thyme and oregano. We’d always advocate the use of fresh herbs where possible when cooking with salmon as you need to really bring the flavours out and dried herbs simply don’t cut the mustard.
