HOW TO MAKE SALMON: 8 Easy Ways to Cook Salmon

Pan-Frying Salmon: This method involves seasoning salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then pan-frying them in a skillet with butter or oil. Start by cooking the fillets skin-side down for about 5-6 minutes over medium-high heat, then flip and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until done.

Oven-Baked Salmon: To oven-roast salmon, preheat the oven to 450°F, season the salmon with salt and pepper, and place them skin-side down in a greased baking dish or sheet pan. Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes without flipping the fish

Broiled Salmon: Broiling involves cooking salmon fillets under the oven broiler for a few minutes on each side until they're done. Preheat the broiler, season the salmon, and place them on a lined sheet pan or cedar plank. Broil for 5-7 minutes per side

Pan-Roasted Salmon: This method combines stovetop and oven cooking. Start by pan-roasting seasoned salmon fillets in an oven-proof skillet for 3 minutes on the stovetop, then transfer to a low-heat oven (around 275°F) and cook for 20 minutes.

Grilled Salmon: Grilling salmon over high heat on an outdoor grill gives it a smoky flavor and caramelized crust. Oil the grill grates, season the salmon, and grill skin-side down for 10-15 minutes, turning once, until easily flaked with a fork.

Poached Salmon: Poaching involves simmering salmon fillets in a liquid such as white wine or stock until they're cooked through and tender. Prepare a poaching liquid, add the salmon fillets, and simmer for 15-20 minutes until firm.

Cooking Salmon in Parchment: Also known as salmon en papillote, this method involves wrapping seasoned salmon fillets in parchment paper with lemon slices, herbs, and olive oil, then baking them in the oven at 400°F for 20-25 minutes.

Cooking Salmon in the Air Fryer: Air frying salmon results in crispy, flavorful fillets in under 15 minutes. Preheat the air fryer, season the salmon, and cook skin-side down for about 15 minutes at 370°F until cooked through.
