Baked Salmon Recipes,
Salmon patties and Grilling Salmon.

I typically will have baked salmon at least once a week, as it is quick and easy to prepare and clean up. How to cook salmon and knowing when to stop cooking is very important to the flavor and texture. I have had over cooked salmon in restaurants so many times that I prefer to cook it at home now.

The trick is to remove from heat before it is at the flake stage. Most fish taste best when they flake and are opaque but not salmon.

The best way to tell is to stick a folk in the thickest part. Salmon tastes better when center is still translucent. And remember it will keep cooking once removed from the heat.

Pasta recipes with fresh seafood are complete meals when served with a vegetable such as Broccoli or asparagus.

Salmon is high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Vitamin D. If you would like to learn about the numerous other health benefits of eating salmon, check out Wild Caught Salmon.

Take the baked fish and flake into chunks. Stir chopped cucumber, broccoli and fish into sauce. Put fettuccine on serving platter, pour sauce over fettuccine.

Using heavy duty tin foil, make a disposable pan large enough to have an inch space around the salmon filet.

Place the foil pan with salmon on grill grate and tent another piece of foil over the salmon. Close grill cover. Grill for 20 minutes.
