Cooking Salmon

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
