    Cooking frozen salmon fillet?

    Trying to figure out what to cook for dinner.

    Have a beautiful frozen salmon fillet in the freezer with a recipe on the back saying to cook the fillet frozen. Never tried this and am not sure whether to risk it or not.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I would thaw it out and cook it on med heat in olive oil a little salt and pepper and smashed fresh garlic.

    you can speed it up by putting in a bowl of water.

    Yups!! but it does depend on your taste

    Salmon does not take long to thaw out

    Thaw lightly, drench in flour, fry on low heat..in butter...remove the salmon filet...and saute onions and garlic pieces in the butter remaining..return the salmon pieces..and saute again under low heat..topped with chopped chibes..then cover with a light hollandaise sauce...Enjoy!!

    Ended up with the salmon, baked it frozen with lemon, garlic, and butter. Oh man, came out perfect.

    Also baby beets, broccolli, french bread, cilantro quinoa, and sauteed onion rings with green olives and mushrooms.

    oh yeah

    It's not a problem cooking fish filets frozen, since they're "thin", not much mass to them. It's not like you're cooking chicken frozen, that would be thick and have bone mass in the middle making it raw in the center while burnt on the outside.

    This technique is assuming the fish fillets have been packaged correctly when freezing...individual fillets separate from each other...not a stack of a half dozen fillets frozen together.

    If the recipe calls for thawed...fill the sink basin with room temp water...weight down the fillets in a waterproof bag such as ziplock, with all the air squeezed out...and weight them down underwater. Room temp water is the best way to thaw any frozen meats.

    Salmon...a recipe such as Dans is one of my fave...I love smearing the outside with crushed garlic...and sear the salmon on a higher heat to brown and crisp the outside...and have the inside stil leaning towards rare.
