Cast your vote for Oven-Roasted Salmon

Salmon is a very versatile fish to prepare. It is rich without being overtly 'fishy' tasting. While steaming and poaching enhance it's natural buttery texture, there is a method that I've been using for years because of it's simplicity that renders a crispy, caramelized crust and soft, moist tenderness every time.

Because of salmon's high fat content, searing it in a hot pan gives me that brown outer crust that I love, while searing in all the moisture. So while this is an oven-roasting technique, we begin with a fry pan........

When you prepare your salmon, you'll want to remove any fatty portion of the belly that remains. That is the whitish flesh indicated by a few arrows above.

To ensure that your fish cooks evenly, I recommend that you buy a whole center-cut fillet and cut into portions yourself or have your fishmonger portion it for you.

If you've purchased salmon with the skin on, don't fret. Use your sharpest knife to slice through the salmon skin or try a serrated knife. Once your fish is cooked, simply peel skin off before plating.

I have used many non-stick pans in my career and I can tell you that they are fairly much all alike. You do not need to buy an expensive skillet. Once you have decided on one, however, protect it from scratches. Once it has been damaged, toss it.
