Cooking question; how I should fix salmon filets?

Hi, all -- Can someone tell me how I should fix salmon filets? I am not a big fan of fish so I rarely buy it. My husband likes salmon so I'm going to give it a try. Riley may end up with mine!! Oh yeah - Nothing too fancy. Just something tasty and easy! Thanks!

If I were making the salmon....I would buy it seasoned...Albertsons has great seasoning...if you are going to season it yourself do a dusting of garlic powder, lemon pepper, and a hint of cayene...spray some tinfoil with pam..put the filets on that, slice a lemon thin and put on top. If you have fresh dill, you could put a sprig of that on top.....wrap up and grill....I wouldnt cook inside...very could also slide the salmon on a cedar plank (soaked in water) and that gives it a nice smokey I always grill...
OK, so..... Do you broil it in the oven? If so, how long? I told you I was clueless about fish!! :oops:
Poach Salmon (my favorite)

Salmon Fillet on a veggie steamer if you don't have a fish poacher. Put water, or wine in the pan to just below the steamer. If you don't have a steamer I have placed the fish in the pan with water and wine till it come up the side of the fish fillet just under a 1/2 inch.

A little salt and pepper on the fillet
sprinkle a little dill weed on the fillet
Slice a lemon or two really thin
place lemon slices over the fillet till you have most of it covered
put lid on pan
turn on heat and once the water or wine has come to a boil it's about ten minutes till done. If too pink inside, after you turn of the heat, let it sit for another ten and it should be perfect. I steam veggies or toss a salad with this. When you are done with the fish don't store it with the lemon slices on it. they will make the fish bitter. Just toss the slices out.

Your house will not smell fishy and if you have left overs, salad the next night with a little of the salmon on top is wonderful.

Try it, you'll like it!
You can broil it...but personally, I hate the smell of fish in the I'd grill it....If you broil, just make sure that the foil is sealed tightly. It should only take 8 -10 min....depends on how thick the filets are...if the fish flakes with a fork its done....if youre not sure after 10 min take out of the oven or grill, leave it wrapped while you prepare everything will continue to cook even after removed from heat foil and wa-la yummy salmon...
I was just thinking of another recipe:

Teriaki Salmon:

2tbsp soy sauce
2tbsp ketchup
1tsp ricewine vinegar
1tbsp sugar
1 clove garlic

mix stuff together to make marinade...pour over salmon for 30 min. grill or broil...

I serve it with stir fried veggies and rice.....
Thanks you guys! You gave me some really good tips! I'm going to give it a whirl and see how it comes out. I'm having a tossed salad and green beans fixed with bacon and onion dressing along with the fish. If I have good luck, who knows..... I may try shark steaks next!!! :!:
Have you tried -- you can search recipes from Gourmet and Bon Appetit for free. You can search by ingredient, course, food prep method, etc. I love it. Plus the reviews people submit are sometimes realy funny. Lots of times people say they loved the recipe and then go on to explain how they personally modified just about every element. Good stuff!
Thanks! I'm going to check out that website. I'm always looking for new receipies :)
Salmon is a great 'starter' fish, in my opinion, especially to cook with. Since it has the fat in it, it doesn't dry out too much if you overcook it. Some good ways to fix it is to just put some salt and pepper on it and then put it on the grill (keep the skin on--it will prevent it from sticking, and, if it does stick, you don't have to worry since you would peel the skin off anyways).
Another thing is to coat the skin in a mixture of mustard (any kind but the yellow) and sour cream and slather that on the fish.
I love grilled salmon the best, but broiling or plain cooking in the oven works really well too.
A good website to go to is and they have a 'search' place where you can enter in salmon and about a million recipes will appear...
I like those marinades you can buy - half hour in the frig and then 5 minutes each side on the grill on medium heat.

Easy and good!
I agree with the marinades! So easy and they taste great. The lemon pepper and other citrus flavors seem to do the best with Salmon. I don't really like "fishy" fish so the marinades also help to cut that taste.
We like to do them on the regular grill, they also taste great on the George Forman Grill.

Melt butter in skillet on low heat, with little lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Throw in fish, cover and cook til done. :wink:
My husband loves salmon, this is how I do it sometimes. Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder, then smother with pumpkin-chipotle sauce. Wrap in foil, cook about 20 minutes @ 350(time depends on thickness of fish) The sauce can be ordered from American Spoon Foods. item code RS-PMKM
Friend's son fishes for salmon.......he suggests soaking salmon in orange juice for 30 minutes to remove "impurities." Whatever that means. Anyway, it doesn't hurt .............
