How to Cook Salmon?

Salmon can be pan-fried, air-fried, baked, poached, steamed, grilled and roasted, making it a super versatile element to add to any dish. All you have to do is season it to your liking and choose a cooking method that suits you. If you can’t choose, we have plenty of recipes that will do it for you, all you have to do is follow the easy step-by-step instructions.

Can You Reheat Salmon?

Yes, you can reheat salmon that’s already been cooked once. In fact, it’s a great way to reduce your household food waste. Salmon is a very delicate fish, so it's sensitive to drying out quickly. Reheating salmon on high heat can harden and dry it out; the lower and slower your reheating is, the better your leftover salmon will taste. Remember to always check the internal temperature (it should be around 45-50°C / 110-125F) before eating.

What Can Salmon Be Served With?

Salmon is a staple for many people, especially those who follow a pescatarian and is super versatile due to its flavour and the fact it can be served with a variety of different side dishes, or as a main part of various dishes and cuisines including:

Noodles: Noodles are a popular side dish to serve alongside salmon, especially among spicy recipes or Asian-inspired dishes.

Grilled Vegetables: Serving salmon with grilled vegetables is a great way to enjoy this delicious fish, and by carbohydrates like rice and couscous it makes a simple, yet balanced dish.

Grilled Asparagus: Tender grilled asparagus spears seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper are a classic and elegant accompaniment to salmon.

Mashed Potatoes: Creamy mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes offer a comforting and hearty option to serve alongside salmon.

Green Salad: A simple green salad with mixed greens, avocado, nuts, and a light dressing can balance the richness of the salmon.
