I just recently started eating salmon. It has to be cooked right and it has to be a good piece of fish but when both of these things come into play them it can be delicious. I recently received some salmon from the Wild Alaskan Company.
Wild Alaskan Company is a monthly seafood membership that will deliver wild-caught, sustainable seafood right to your doorstep. They ship premium, wild-caught seafood to members all over the country. You can choose from three different boxes. There's a salmon box, a white fish box, and a combination box. You can choose a 12 pack of fish or a 24 pack of fish.
My first box included Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Pacific Cod, Pacific Halibut, and Wild Sockeye. I was so excited to start cooking with wild-caught, sustainable fish. I immediately made my No Fail Beer Battered Fish with the cod. It was so flaky and tender inside and crispy on the outside.
Then I turned to the Coho Salmon. I saw a recipe that broiled the salmon after it was covered in butter and herbs. I liked that it didn't have to spend much time in the oven and prep time was only about 10 minutes.
This recipe is really simple. You heat a pan in the oven under the broiled. Then you dip the salmon in melted butter and put it in the pan and broil for several minutes. Then the herbs, breadcrumbs, and cheese are sprinkled on top and everything is broiled until the fish is cooked to a perfect 145 degrees.
The salmon is really tasty. The herbs, butter, and cheese make a delicious topping for it and it almost melts in your mouth. We really enjoyed it and I know it's because it was such a good piece of fish.
