A very popular dish, salmon has a distinct flavor profile. The fish’s impressive omega-3 count and rich taste make it a popular meal option for health-conscious foodies and seafood lovers alike.

We serve our Atlantic salmon with a homemade creamy tomato, basil, and capers Tchoupitoulas sauce. Like all seafood on our menu, the salmon is hand-selected from the finest local markets. While salmon can be enjoyed on its own, there are many side dishes that enhance its flavor.

Looking for the best side dish pairing to salmon? We’ve narrowed it down for you. From baked potato to sauteed mushrooms, here are side dishes at Christner’s that pair beautifully with our delicious salmon.

Baked Potato

baked potato with butter

Crispy on the outside and fluffy within, baked potatoes are a popular side dish for many main courses, especially salmon. Baked potatoes are calorically dense and, when paired with low-calorie salmon, provide a more satiating meal than eating salmon alone. The result? A combination that is flavorful, rich, and satisfying. It will win you over upon the first bite.

Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts and salmon are a classic pair and for good reason. The salty and crispy vegetables accompany the juicy and tender fish, allowing for complete harmony of flavor and texture.


Side of asparagus

Asparagus is also an ideal partner for salmon. The crisp texture of asparagus combines beautifully with the flavorful salmon to create a stellar dinner. For an even better balance of flavor, add an extra squeeze of zesty lemon.

Fresh Vegetables

When looking for the best side dish, you need to consider foods that will enhance the flavor of salmon. Fresh vegetables are filling, delicious, and round out a highly nutritious meal.

Sauteed Mushrooms
