Salmon is popular the world over, but skeptics remain wary of its strong flavor. Rick Moonen, co-author of Fish Without a Doubt, finds sweet or spicy accents can tame salmon's fishiness. One example: a jalapeño salmon burger, which Moonen serves with guacamole on pita bread. You'll still taste the salmon, but it'll be balanced by the chili's heat and smoothed out by the avocado and lime. He also likes to introduce people to salmon via his hoisin glaze, made with lime juice, honey and a little bit of spice. Its sweetness is a good match for the smoky taste of salmon cooked on the grill.
