Salmon and other fish from the same family have always been abundant in Russian rivers and coastal areas. That is why this fish plays an important role in Russian cuisine. In Russian, salmon is called “лосось” [laßóß’]. Nowadays, salmon fillet is used in most recipes as it is easy to cook. This healthy and delicious fish can be baked, fried, grilled or steamed.
