Anyone, and I do mean anyone – can cook a slab of salmon to perfection! Aside from this quick marinade, as in 10-15 minutes quick, that seals the deal –  if you do nothing else, heed the following advice! Regardless of what you do to prep your salmon, you must, must, must resist the urge to touch, turn or tinker with your fish – you have one chance, and one chance only to end up with perfectly cooked, intact salmon!

In other words – keep your mitts off the fish! I can’t stress this enough – it’s the constant touching, turning & tinkering that sends fantastic to floundering (pun intended) faster than speeding bullets, light, sound and any other speed cliché you can think of. What you gotta have is faith – and if you do you will be rewarded with the most flavourful, succulent, slab of salmon ever to pass your lips. Talk about salmon enchanted evening – sorry, I couldn’t resist – and apparently, I’m not the only one!

Choose any cooking method you prefer – in a pan, in parchment or foil, in the oven or right on the grill – whichever method you choose, make sure it’s screamin’ hot, coupled with a tasty marinade, add a cook with self-control and you’ve got yourself a winner, winner, salmon dinner!

9. After 3,4,5 minutes depending on the thickness, get your metal spatula right under the fish, keeping contact with the grill grate, loosen the fish and carefully turn it over. I use 2 spatulas, and leave it alone!
