Cooking to perfection

The white part that seeps out of the salmon when cooking is actually protein.

  • Rule #1: You’d want to get the fillet out of your fridge 15 to 20 minutes before placing it on a pan.
  • Rule #2: Don’t overcook your fish. Remember to cook the fish over medium heat. If its on high heat, the oil is cooked and your fish will burn faster.
  • Rule #3: Don’t keep flipping the fish. Place it skin-down and only flip it once 1/3 of the salmon is cooked
  • Rule #4: When cooking in the oven, cook it at a low temperature (50 degrees) for 45 minutes. Check if it’s cooked by using the other end of the spoon and it’ll go in slowly.
