How To Cook Salmon...

HQ Office

We get a lot of people asking us how we like to eat our salmon, so for our latest blog post we thought we'd give you some ideas for cooking salmon! 

All our products can be eaten straight away with no cooking required, however if you're looking to do something a wee bit different then here are some of our favourite ways to cook and prepare salmon...

1. Foil Oven Baked

Our Roast Smoked Salmon is delicious on it's own straight out the packet, however if you fancy a warm meal for dinner, we recommend Foil Oven Baking one of our Roast Smoked Salmon fillets!

First, set your oven to 200°, then simply pop the fillet on top of a sheet of tin foil and pat the salmon dry to remove any excess moisture. 

Next, season the salmon with whatever herb or spice you like! We recommend fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cut a wedge of the lemon and place on top of the salmon. 

Bring either side of the foil to the top to create a little roof over the salmon, make sure there are no gaps and pop into the oven for around 5-6 minutes. 

2. Pan Fry

If you have a salmon fillet and you don't have a clue what to do with it, why not try Pan Frying it? 

First, melt some butter in a frying pan. Once melted, pop your salmon fillet in the pan skin side down and season with salt and pepper (or any other fancy herb and spice you'd like!). 

Fry for around 2-3 minutes, then turn the salmon over and cooked for a further 1-2 minutes. 

3. Poaching 

A healthy option for cooking a salmon fillet is to poach it in a pot of simmering hot water. Carefully place the fillets in the water and sprinkle in a small amount of salt and a couple of whole peppercorns. Simmer gently until the fish is cooked right through.

Make sure there is enough water to cover the whole fillet! 

As well as cooking the salmon, we think serving the salmon is just as important and so, next is our sauce recommendations... Don't say we ain't good to ya! 

Bearnaise Sauce - a creamy, tarragon infused sauce with white wine vinegar

Watercress Sauce - a delicious healthy sauce with a creamy texture

Hollandaise Sauce - an extremely creamy and light sauce 

Lemon and Dill Sauce - a sauce with a bit of a citrus kick

 

Hope this gives you some salmon inspo for the run up to Christmas... Happy cooking!
