With salmon especially, you need to be careful of over-drying it. The worst tasting fish is dry and tastes like cardboard, right?
Raise your hand if you’ve done that before!
Tips For Cooking Salmon:
#1. Keep the Skin ON!
To enhance the flavors and take advantage of all of the fishy-benefits salmon has to offer, leave the skin on! You can always remove it before eating.
#2. Do not overcook salmon!
Follow the recipe directions carefully and check often.
#3. Knowing when it’s done.
One way to know your salmon is done is to give it a gentle poke with your finger in the center of the fillet, seeing if it yields to flaky pieces.
#4. Let it rest!
Let your salmon rest for a few minutes on a cutting board before serving it.
This gives you time to set the table, take a sip or two from your cannabis cocktail, and glaze it if you have any leftover glaze.
#5. Pair it With Rice
Rice goes perfectly with salmon, so if you have a rice cooker or pressure cooker at home, whip up a nice batch and serve it on the side. The rice helps to soak up any fat or grease, but the two work in tandem with your taste buds!
