People get easily flustered by the idea of cooking fish. It seems so delicate, so easy to overcook, undercook. Is it safe, farmed, wild? The possibilities for failure can sometimes seem endless. We are happy to tell you that salmon, our delicious topic today, is one of the most forgiving fish out there. We find it to be almost idiot-proof.
Its oily flesh and skin keep it super moist, and its meaty texture will satisfy even the most carnivorous dinner guest. Salmon gets extra bonus points for being filled with omega-3 fatty acids, which soothe inflammation and are good for cardiovascular health. Do you hear what we're saying, everyone? Eating this delicious thing is actually good for you!
One other note: don’t be afraid of the skin. Crisp salmon skin is one of the singular delights of this world. It is like a potato chip from the sea. Eat it. It’s good for you. Just make sure there aren’t any scales on it.
