Salmon Basics

Directions

  1. Rinse salmon fillets; pat dry with paper towels.
To Bake:
  1. Rub both sides of fish with oil; sprinkle flesh side with seasoning. Arrange fillets, skin side down, in shallow baking pan. Bake in preheated 400 F oven until fish just flakes with a fork in thickest part (14-16 minutes).
To Sauté:
  1. Sprinkle flesh side with seasoning. In medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté fillets, skin side up, 4 minutes. Turn over; continue to cook until fish just flakes with a fork in thickest part (5-7 minutes).
To Grill:
  1. Rub both sides of fish with oil; sprinkle flesh side with seasoning. Spray grill rack with no stick cooking spray. Using direct heat cooking method, arrange fillets, skin side up, 4-5 inches from medium-hot coals. Grill 4 minutes; turn over. Continue grilling until fish just flakes with a fork in thickest part (5-7 minutes).

Chef’s tip

For salmon fillets less than an inch thick, adjust timings accordingly to prevent overcooking.
