Have you just bought a filet of salmon and you aren’t quite sure what the best method for preparing it is? While salmon might seem like an intimidating fish to cook, there’s no need to worry because there are plenty of preparations that make this fish taste great.

Here are the three best ways to prepare salmon.


Pan-frying salmon is one of my favorite ways to prepare a filet of this fish. I recommend adding a little bit of olive oil to a cast-iron pan, during your stove on medium heat, and cooking the fish until it is thoroughly done on both sides and in the middle, about 7-8 minutes total.


Baking is another easy way to prepare salmon, requiring very little effort and time. Depending on the size of your fillet, only about 8-10 minutes in an oven that has been pre-heated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit should do the trick.


Are you lucky enough to own a grill? This is a great way to prepare salmon in a unique and exciting way. A charcoal grill can be a great solution, but if you have hickory chips or mesquite chips, this is a great way to leave the wood’s character on the salmon’s flavor.
