Tips for buying and cooking salmon

  • Try to buy wild-caught salmon when possible. It’s loaded with nutrients that are hard to come by elsewhere and not treated with antibiotics. 
  • Look for thicker, more center-cut pieces of salmon, as they’ll cook more evenly and have better flavor!

How to cook salmon

You can cook salmon in many ways: pan-seared, grilled, baked, roasted, smoked(!), baked in parchment paper, or in foil packets. Make sure not to overcook salmon when you cook it on the stove because it can become dry.

If pan-searing salmon, use a good quality non-stick pan. Take the time to bring the salmon fillets at room temperature. This helps to make sure the salmon cooks evenly and gets a nice crust. Be careful when flipping the salmon fillets. Too much flipping may cause the salmon fillets to break up. So let the salmon fillets cook properly on one side (usually the skinless side first) before flipping it onto the other side.

What sides to serve with Salmon

Salmon can accommodate a large choice of sides. Roasted veggies tend to have a place of choice with salmon when served in restaurants. Try roasted asparagus for the strong contrasting flavor, teamed up with mashed potatoes, and a roasted lemon on the side. Other good sides for salmon are:

  • Mashed potatoes
  • French potatoes
  • Brown Rice
  • Pasta
  • Any sauteed vegetables such as asparagus, zucchini, cauliflower, or broccoli.

How long to keep cooked salmon leftovers

Cooked salmon will usually last up to 2 days in the refrigerator if stored properly in an airtight container. You can also keep frozen cooked salmon for up to 1 month.
