TIPS & TRICKS

  • Always slice your fish when it’s Raw. It is much easier to make perfect, sharp-cut slices than slicing after the fish is cooked and falls apart. It cooks faster and you get a much tastier slice of fish since you season it on all sides.
  • Use Salmon with the skin-on. Keeping the skin on salmon makes it easier to flip, as the salmon is less likely to fall apart.
  • Let the Salmon or any meat come to room temperature.
  • The skin insulates the salmon and makes it more difficult to overcook, adds more flavor, and has nutritional benefits. You can eat salmon skin if you like.
  • Your cooked salmon (or fish in general) can be safe in the fridge for up to 4 days.
