frequently asked questions

What flavors go best with salmon?

Salmon is very versatile when it comes to the way it gets prepared. It comes down to what your taste buds are in the mood for. You may go for salty and sour by just seasoning it with some salt, pepper, lemons, and any of your favorite seasonings like Italian or Oregano. If you prefer it more on the sweet side, then try honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar. Our honey-glazed salmon would be a great choice. Salmon can also be prepared in a creamy garlic sauce.

What vegetable is good with salmon?

We believe that you can go wrong with any vegetable to serve with salmon. Honestly! Serve with your favorite roasted veggies. Options can be endless but our favorite vegetables are some steamed broccoli, green beans, roasted asparagus, some parmesan roasted cauliflower, or just a side of fresh garden salad!

What side of salmon do you sear first?

If your salmon fillet is skinless, it doesn’t matter which side you sear first. When cooking the salmon fillet with the skin on, it is best to cook it with the skin side down first for 5-6 minutes. Once the skin is crispy, you can flip to the other side and let it cook for another 4- 5 minutes.
