    I cook my salmon (fresh) in an iron skillet on medium heat with a lid over it. I dont turn the salmon. The lid holds the heat in and cooks the salmon thru. I test whether it is done by flaking in the middle with a fork.

    I prefer fresh center cut filets. I do them in the oven at about 375, rubbed with olive oil and dusted with spices.

    if you cook salmon on a high heat with some citrus, like a lime, or lemon, then quickly flip it over, until it is seared briefly on both sides, the acid from the fruit will speed up the cooking process. The heat generated will get sealed in when you sear the outsides, and if you leave it for 5 minutes afterwards, the inside of the fish actually steams its self.

    Yesterday,

    I took 3 salmon cuts and placed them in a preheated oven, still frozen. I baked them in a heat tempered glass for 30 min at a 350 degrees. (Covered with foil wrap)

    I used butter and garlic flavored olive oil..

    Served on a bed of brown rice with fresh asparagus, fresh salad and garlic toast......

    Everyone like it~

    I just shove spread a little basil pesto on it and bake in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes.

    You can also use horseradish on it and bake in the same way.

    I wrap it in foil with a little lime, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and chilli - cook it in the oven for 12 mins or so at about 180C.

    Or you can do it with beans and cherry tomatoes and olives for about the same length of time and temp icon_smile.gif

    I prefer to bake mine at 400 for 20 minutes. That ensures it's cooked all the way through and gets that slight crispiness outside. I alternate between lined baking sheet and a glass baking container w/ lid. I usually add a dollop of olive oil, a little butter and some lemon juice to mine before baking.

    I always cook it outside in a gas grill - wrapped in foil (tenting the top) with just lemon juice. No mess, no fuss, no smell.

    I broil my Salmon, and all fish, in the oven. Just sprinkle it with pepper, spray some "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter". Broil until it's a little crispy on top, flip over and broil about 5 more minute or until slightly crispy and it's done.

    I like spicy, so I sprinkle with tobasco and then put some green chile salsa on top -- YUMMMM!

    I also just discovered this stuff at TRADER JOES, it's their own brand of "Ginger Soy Vinegarette" which is also excellent on any fish.

    If you're going to bake fish, be sure to include some kind of liquid in the pan.

    Also be very careful not to over cook it. Even with the liquid, over cooking fish makes it chewy. You want to aim for light and flaky.

    Salmon has a fuller flavor, so a soy sauce and lemon juice mix works pretty well. You can rub a mix of black and red pepper on the fish for some more flavor.

    Side note: if you're baking it you might want to get some sort of fat free pan spray. That stuff is your best friend in the kitchen... granted you're not going to be cooking 300 slabs of fish like I'm used to doing at work, but any time saved doing dishes is great.

    Anyway, set the oven to 325. Spray your pan, pour a small layer of the soy/lemon mix, rub the outside of the fish with the pepper if it's thawed, or sprinkle on top if you're cooking it frozen. It should only take around 15 minutes in the oven, depending on how thick they are. I wouldn't cook them for more then 30 minutes though.

    Well if you want to do it restaurant style just thaw it and throw it in a pan with hot oil until it starts to caramelize and then slide the whole pan into a hot oven until the exposed bottom side firms up. Flip it over and serve.
    My favorite way at home however, is to bake it on a cedar plank because it infuses it with a lot more flavor and a bit more moisture. The planks aren't very expensive and you can use them pretty much until they burn up.

    I do mine more like AZWoody, except that I prefer to pouch it in a Chardonnay. I always cut it into serving sizes first (so when plating you have nice clean cut sides), place into a pan, fill about 2/3 with chardonney, top with some garlic powder, crushed rosemary, butter pads (not a lot) and sliced lemon. Cover tightly with foil (try and seal it as best you can) and throw it into the 350 oven for about 20 minutes....it's moist, flaky and served also on top of a bed of rice and roasted asparagus, you'll be the hit of dinner. Remember if it looks good, it tastes a LOT better (especially true for your guests!). Bon Appetit!

    Just had dinner at "The OUTBACK" restaurant....they grilled the salmon and it was marinated great...loved it

    I first marinate mine in 1 Tab. of Olive oil (I use unfiltered) Lemon juice, lime juice, ground rosemary and some salt and pepper. I let them marinate for 1 hour you can do for less too. Then saute them in a pan on med heat using all the liquid in the marinade to cook them with, depending on the thickness I usually cook them for 4-5 mins on each side. Serve with some roasted veggies and its great.
