Wild salmon is so flavorful it needs only a little olive oil and salt and pepper, and it cooks in minutes. It's the height of wild salmon season, which runs from mid-May to mid-September. At other times of the year, good-quality wild salmon can be found in the frozen seafood section. King salmon (also called Chinook), coho and sockeye are wild salmon varieties to try.
If you can't find wild salmon, farmed salmon can be used for this recipe. The flavor will be different.
