Maybe you have a special trick of cooking a perfect salmon? I’d love to hear it.

There are several methods of cooking salmon. The proper safe temperature at which the salmon meat is done is 145F. You will need a thermometer to check for it, and you will need to stick it into the thickest part of the meat.

Depending on how your salmon is cut, there timing for it to get ready will be different. Here are a few useful tips.

If you’re cooking salmon steaks of about half an inch thick, it will take about 6-7 minutes in an oven at a temperature of 450F. the meat should turn flakey, but still a little glistening at the bone. If your steaks are thicker, add a couple of minutes to the timing. But do check for readiness, as overcooked salmon is too dry and chewy.

If you’re baking salmon fish filet, start on low temperature for 10-12 minutes and them put it on high for another 3-4 minutes to bring it  to the state where it has a little bit of crust. 

If you’re baking salmon in foil and add vegetables, it’s usually about 15-20 minutes to cook it nice and proper, depending on the size of your salmon piece.
