Cooking Salmon

7 posts in this topic

So on my honeymoon i drug the new wife out fishing on Lake Superior.. brought home a couple salmon. I've never cooked them before, only had them smoked. What are some suggestions (easy methods) of cooking these. I have the skin-on fillets.

Thanks for any advice!

Really Simple:

put the fillet on some aluminum foil, skin against foil

mix up some fresh garlic and melted butter and brush on the fillet

Put some coarse salt and fresh pepper on the top of fillet

Cook it on your grill. I just cook them until they are light pink.

You can also roast in the oven until done to your liking. Salt and pepper is enough seasoning for me, although a little soy sauce is nice too.

Take the fillets and put them in a zip loc bag, skin side down. Get some Wish Bone Robusto Italian salad dressing. Pour approximately 1/3 to 1/2 cup dressing over the top, enough to cover them. Marinade for 24 hours, flipping a couple of times. Heat up the grill to med/high, spray or oil the grill, cook about 6-7 minutes a side depending on thickness. Nummy and easy. Goes great with a salad and some garlic bread.

I have used cedar planks on the grill for salmon fillets with good results. A few onions, lemons, dill, and other seasonings (what every you like). MMM MMM good.

I like to grill them on indirect heat. I've found it leaves you a little more leeway to not overcook them. My preference is to pull it off the grill while it is still a little red in the middle. It seems to keep cooking after you take it off. Just like venison and other game, the key is not to overcook.

    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
