Top 3 Mistakes Cooking Salmon
Don’t you just hate when you have your mind and taste buds set on a particular dish, but then it just doesn’t come out right?? Have no fear, well don’t fear salmon at least. We’ve got the most common mistakes people make when they cook this popular and delicious fish. See below:
1. Taking Off the Skin
When you’re cooking salmon, keep the skin on. It provides a safety layer between your fish’s flesh and a hot pan or grill. Start with the skin-side down, and let it crisp up. It’s much easier to slide a fish spatula under the salmon’s skin than under its delicate flesh. The only exception? You should remove the skin when you’re poaching filets.
2. Poach It In Plain Water
Speaking of poaching, don’t poach your salmon in plain water. It’s a missed opportunity to add flavor! At the very least, spike the water with lemon or a half head of garlic. Better yet, go all out and poach the salmon in dry white wine. If you don’t involve scents to cover up the smell in the poaching process, the salmon might stink up your kitchen.
