Ginger Miso Salmon Steaks

You know those meals that, when you make them once, you want to make them again and again forever and ever? These salmon steaks were like that for us and they will soon be your go-to recipe too.

Cooking salmon can be a touch tricky as it has a tendency to dry out and become rubbery if you overcook it.  However, I've got the trick for cooking perfect salmon every time and, I'm going to share it with you.

Ginger Miso Salmon Steaks

In order to prevent salmon from drying out, you want to cook it at a low temp in the oven. I cook these at 225 degrees Fahrenheit over 20 minutes.

Low and slow is definitely the way to go. 

By cooking the salmon slowly you get perfectly tender and melt in your mouth fish. Try this method just once and you'll be hooked. Trust me. It's the only method I use for baking fish.

And, do watch out for bones when you eat your steaks. There does tend to be quite a few of them. If you're serving this to kids you might want to make salmon fillets for them. You can cook them exactly the same.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
