Any suggestions on how to cook this huge piece of fish in an easy but tasty way?

    I usually cook fillets of salmon in a hot oven for 8-10 min.
    I often make a teriyaki/ginger glaze – brush onto fillets and bake until med-rare. I do not bother to remove the skin prior to cooking as it pulls away very easily after it’s cooked.

    If dealing with a larger piece of salmon, not cut into individual servings I will usually make a foil ‘pouch’ and steam it, again in the oven and include sprigs of fresh herbs, lemon etc.

      A bit of drizzled oil with sesame seed crust, sear it in a hot pan a couple of minutes on each side. Serve with snow peas and soba noodles...for instance
