Boring Salmon

I just had salmon and it tasted horrible..

I've been having 2 salmon fillets. I just cook it in the oven and add salt + pepper.

However it tasted horrible and I'm bored of chicken every night so thats why I thought I'd try salmon.

So does any1 have any good bulking salmon meals? Or any other fish saying that!

    sorry, didn't really read.

    fishcakes are great for bulking, with tinned salmon though.

    :D

    Why dont you like the salmon Lanky? How about steam it and have it with veg, or lightly dust with flower and dry spices then lightly fry.

    I wouldnt do anything more to salmon, its lovely just as it is. For similar cost, you could try tuna steaks intead?

    According to a report which was quoted in an article I remember reading, Scottish farmed salmon is not safe to be eaten more than twice a year because of the massive amount of chemicals (dioxins, I think) it contains. I believe the report came from a United Nations agricultural/fisheries department. I've stuck to organic or Alaskan ever since.

    Basically it had no spices on it and was really very dry. Kinda like eating cat food.

    But these ideas are great will try them. But damn! Salmon is well expensive, guess its a one-a-week meal.

    Very over cooked. It should be soft and moist, each layer of the fillet can be pulled off lightly with the fork.

    Not sure about oven mate, but to steam is like 10-15 mins, lightly fry is just under 10 minutes.

    With these types of meat / fish, the expensive stuff, I always cook them slowly, low-med heat, I would never rush food like this.

    Make some Salmon pasta, great if you are bulking.

    Cook the salmon in the oven 200 degrees for about 12 mins (this will be slightly pink in the middle) let it rest for 4 mins.

    Boil some pasta (whole meal) & drain. Lightly fry some chopped asparagus, fine beans & onion with some oregano and basil (fresh is better, but dried works fine) until they have softened. In a seperate pan, mix a little flour with some milk - stir until thickened then add some cheese (tablespoon of flour, 300ml of milk, 50g of cheese).

    Mix the veg in with the cheese sauce, pour this over the pasta, flake the salmon with a fork and add to the mix. Grate some Parmesan cheese over the top - season with salt & pepper and enjoy!!

    Thanks alot. Now I've got some idea of how to cook the salmon and actually make it into a meal instead of a medicine.

    Hey lanky. Sounds like you cooked your salmon too much. When I have my salmon, I always find that it tastes much better in the microwave rather than the oven, this is what i do...

    Pop the fresh salmon fillet into a food bag and add table spoon of water and pepper. Tie the bag up and add about 4 small slits in there. Pop it into the microwave and nuke on high for 1 minute and 20 seconds. Comes out to perfection.

    I usually have mine with some flavoured basmati rice, PERFECT.

    You can also add lemon juice etc to the bag before cooking, but allow time to marinate first.

    try adding fresh parsley,some chinese 5 spices, crushed garlic, knob of butter and lashings of thai sweet chilli sauce (the blue dragon stuff)

    put it all in a pocket of tin foil and cook at 185 for 20 mins, this infuses the flavours into the flesh of the fillet. the excess sauce can be used to cover the rice you have with it.

    one of my favourite meals.

    Tell me how tell me how!

    I eat large cans of salmon, straight from the can. The fish is pretty sweet so it isn't so bad but fish cakes sound far more interesting. How do I make that? (yes, I am a cookery dunce). Email me instructions tho, so I get them quicker. I'm starved!
