Yogi’s Pro Tips to Make the Recipe More Interesting

  • Take a whiff of the fish! Salmon with a strong fishy odor should be avoided. Instead, it should smell like saltwater or the sea.
  • Whether it’s a protein or produce, the general rule of thumb is always to buy the fish fresh for a much better flavor.
  • A reasonable time to cook the fish in the oven is 4–6 minutes every half-inch of salmon. Four minutes is ideal for those who love their salmon rare, while six minutes will properly cook it. The middle of the fish should be somewhat transparent and pink.
