Cooking Salmon

    I have some frozen salmon and have never cooked salmon before. What are some favorite recipes or styles for cooking it? I have also heard that it can be a little bit more tricky. How do you not overcook it? I'd appreciate any tips!

      I hate frozen salmon, but as far as I know you can cook it like fresh?
      I cook salmon fillets in our toaster oven at 375  for about 13 minutes and I spread Dijon mustard on top of them before popping them in the oven.

      You can cook them on a pan on the stove, you can poach them in wine and soup stock... it just depends on your taste preferences. 

      I used to use a thermometer to make sure I didn't overcook salmon, but after eating salmon for years, I know when they are done.  If the fillets you have are on the thinner side, it will take less time to cook than a thicker fillet.

    My recipe "Hazelnut-Crusted Salmon" keeps salmon very moist.

    I am cooking salmon on cedar planks right now and the smell is making me dizzy... not in a good way. Has anyone ever cooked on cedar planks before... and lived to tell about it?

      It's worth it, Beth, trust me.  That cedar flavor is absolutely glorious.

        You're right, everyone loved it. I think I have a cedar allergy. I almost passed out.
