I have seen a lot of the recipes you have but have not seen many, if any, on prepping the food or properly using your utensils. One of the things I've noticed is when people don't know how to prepare something they won't try to cook it. My grandmother, a professional cook, started teaching my brother, sister, and I while we were in elementary school in the 1960's. A better or easier way to prep something is always welcomed.

I fall prey to that. I bought a package of salmon about 3 wks ago and It is sitting there cause I don't know how to fix it. It seemed like a good thing to buy them at the time cause I don't eat enough fish. I'd like a better way to cook these fish.

You can bake, grill, poach, broil, steam it. Try a piece in a pouch of aluminum foil with a sprinkle of salt, pepper, dill, lemon slice(s) in oven for about 400 degrees 15-20 min depending on oven. Can add a splash of wine also. Or bourbon…

A simple way to bake a salmon fillet is to spray a baking pan with Pam, spread mayo over the top along with any desired seasonings (dill and lemon and my favorites) and place, skin-side down in the pan and bake at 400 degress F for about 15 to 20 minutes (it will vary based upon the thickness of the fillet). Quick, easy, low-carb and yummy chock full of Omega-3's.
