Should you cook salmon with skin on?

First of all—skin is tasty! So when you’re cooking salmon, keep that skin on: It provides a safety layer between your fish’s flesh and a hot pan or grill. Start with the skin-side down, and let it crisp up. It’s much easier to slide a fish spatula under the salmon’s skin than under its delicate flesh.

Can you buy skinless salmon?

How do you know when salmon is done?

How Can I Tell When It’s Done? Salmon will change from translucent (red or raw) to opaque (pink) as it cooks. After 6-8 minutes of cooking, check for doneness, by taking a sharp knife to peek into the thickest part. If the meat is beginning to flake, but still has a little translucency in the middle, it is done.

Do you flip salmon?

There is no need to flip. Unless you have a well seasoned cast iron grill or one of the really cheap portable grills with thin grates, the flesh of the salmon will most likely stick. To avoid the “sticking panic” cook salmon skin side down and don’t flip. Grill approximately 8 minutes per inch of thickness.

Should you wash salmon before cooking?

Yes, or at least usually. I recommend quickly rinsing salmon fillets in cold running fresh water just before cooking. Then pat the fish dry with a paper towel. Very fresh salmon fillets do not benefit from a rinse, but salmon with a little, or a lot of age will benefit.
