HOW TO COOK WILD CAUGHT SOCKEYE SALMON

  • If you are using frozen sockeye salmon, let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Take the thawed fish out of the refrigerator roughly 15 minutes prior to cooking.
  • Preheat the grill to 375 Fahrenheit. Cut two pieces of aluminum foil such that they are at least six inches longer than the fish. Place the foil on a heavy baking sheet with the shiny side down. Grease the foil well with butter or oil.  
  • Arrange the salmon in the center of the sheet with the skin side down. Make a small “pan” with one- to two-inch sides around the fish. The best way to do this is to fold the foil up on each side, with at least one inch around the salmon on all sides. This ensures room for air to circulate and roast the fish.
  • Season the salmon to your taste with salt and pepper.
  • Mix the white wine, butter, garlic and your choice of herbs in a small bowl. Oregano, basil and paprika pair well with salmon. Spread this herb mixture over the fish.
  • Move the foil pan to the grill, which by now, should be preheated. You should never cover and cook wild caught sockeye salmon. Leaving it open will allow the steam to escape and avoid overcooking. Close the grill lid, and let it cook for approximately 10 minutes. If you are unsure when is salmon done, you can start checking the fish for doneness after 10 minutes. When salmon is done, the center will be slightly translucent. You can remove the fish from the heat at this point. It will continue to cook in the residual heat.
  • Let the fish rest for about 10 minutes before you serve. This will allow it to reabsorb the juices before you cut into it.

Most people when they cook a fish don’t pay much attention to the fish skin other than to make sure it is clean or to throw it away. Some fish dishes utilize cutlets that still have the skin attached, but most people in the US at least are used to skinless fish fillets. That begs the question, can you eat fish skin?
