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.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
