Salmon is a very meaty fish with a higher oil content, and for this reason, many prefer to prepare it with a simple glaze or herb and lemon sauce to keep it true to form. Both dill and thyme lend a pleasing aroma and unique flavor in sauces.
Sweeter based sauces, such as those made with honey or maple syrup, are a great way to liven up the "king of the waters." Food Network offers a variety of recipes for sauces and glazed salmon. When selecting a sauce for your salmon, think about what you plan to serve with it.
