From simple grilled seafood, seared fish recipes on the stovetop, sheet pan dinners from the oven or stir-fry, and tacos, salmon is so versatile.
Each recipe will explain the cooking technique and pair this delicious seafood with fun flavor combinations.
Easy salmon cooking tips:
Salmon should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145ºF, measured at the thickest part of the filet. That is the recommendation from the FDA.
Use my favorite thermometer to quickly check the internal temperature. And, if you like it a bit less cooked, pull it out of the oven or off the skillet at about 135ºF. It will continue to cook slightly after it's removed from the heat.
