Tips for Making the Best Baked Furikake Salmon
Follow these tips for best results:
- It’s better to use skinless fillets, or you can remove the salmon skin using a knife. That’s because you can’t get crunchy skin with this recipe, and nobody likes slimy skin hanging from their baked fish. If you want to relish crispy skin with this recipe, grill it separately.
- Cooking time will vary based on the size of the fillet. In this recipe, times are according to 150 to 200g or 5 to 7oz. salmon fillets, 3 to 4cm (1.5-2 inches) thick. To check if your fillets are done, insert a sharp knife into the middle of the fillet and see whether the flesh is pale and opaque.
- To add extra moisture and flavor to the bottom of the fillet, add some teriyaki sauce in the baking pan in the last 5 minutes of baking. Then, carefully spread it on top of the salmon so that it forms a crisp layer. Adding it at the beginning will burn it.
