My little family and I are fairly healthy eaters.
One thing we have at least once a week is fish. Whether is be salmon, tilapia, crab, shrimp, trout or lobster, my kids have finally grown to love it (It took about a year of eating every week for them to like it).
Eating fish has opened a whole new set of doors when it comes to the cooking world. If you have never tried salmon before, I challenge you to give it a try. It tastes so good and it is even better for you.
Your body will thank you, as well as your tastebuds.
This dish comes together in a matter of minutes and tastes delicious, like you have been slaving away all day in the kitchen.
what should i season my fish with?
For fish, some of the best seasonings are high in sodium, because salt pairs nicely with salmon. One of our favorite seasonings, is our Old Bay seasoning. It is full of flavor and it has the most amazing look to it.
You could also do salt and pepper, and all seasoning salt, lemon pepper, or any other seasoning you prefer. If you put it on chicken, you could just as easily pair it with salmon.
how to pick salmon:
Here are some simple steps to picking salmon at the store:
- Avoid Salmon that shows any sign of browning. This is where bad flavor and texture are going to come in. That also means too much air has gotten to it, and it hasn’t been properly stored. Avoid this Salmon.
- Go for pink or red salmon
- Find a King Salmon. They have the most flavor to them, and they can even have a more orange hue to them. You will love these a lot more. Less fishy, and more delicious tasting.
- If shopping for fish in the freezer section, find fish that are almost completely covered in ice crystals to ensure that it has properly kept in it’s moisture and flavor.
Can I use salmon that has skin?
You bet you can! Having skin on the bottom won’t make a huge difference. Still cook the side with the skin, just watch it so it doesn’t stick.
Can I use frozen salmon?
You can use frozen salmon, but I wouldn’t suggest doing it for this recipe unless you thaw your frozen salmon. It will just cook unevenly and the outside will be pretty well done while the middle could still be raw.
