1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Season both sides of the salmon steak with salt, black pepper, and garlic. Let it sit for about 10 minutes to absorb the flavors.
2. In a small bowl, mix together teriyaki sauce and honey. Adjust the ratio to your taste preferences, but a good starting point is 1 part teriyaki sauce to 1 part honey. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and melt the butter. Once the butter is melted, sear the salmon steak for about 2-3 minutes on each side until it gets a nice golden brown color.
3. Transfer the seared salmon steak to a baking dish and brush the teriyaki-honey mixture generously over the top. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
4. Once cooked, remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Serve the salmon steak garnished with chopped green onions and a side of broccolini or bacon carrots for added freshness and flavor. You can also squeeze some lemon juice over the top to mask the fish taste.
Salmon- You are welcome to use any salmon for this fresh salmon filets recipe. Here are a few to keep in mind. Sockeye salmon, chinook salmon, or a whole salmon filet. It’s completely your preference.
Spicy Salmon with Cucumbers- This is an Asian-inspired meal. So, the only thing you would have to do is add the English cucumbers(chopped) to your baked salmon steak.
Ok, now let’s get down to the proper storage for these baked salmon steaks. So, If you're not planning to cook the salmon steaks immediately, store them in the refrigerator at a temperature below 40°F (4°C). It's best to use them within two days of purchase to maintain optimal freshness. After cooking place the leftover salmon in an airtight container.
Salmon steaks and salmon fillets may look similar, but there are a few differences in how they are prepared. Salmon steaks are cut straight through the side of the fish crosswise, including the spine bone. This gives them a round and thick shape, with the bone running through the center. On the other hand, salmon fillets are obtained by removing the bone and slicing the fish lengthwise, resulting in a boneless piece of meat. Fillets are typically flatter and more rectangular in shape. Both options have their unique qualities and can be used in various delicious recipes.
1. Purchase from a reputable source: When buying salmon steaks, it's essential to choose a reliable supplier that follows proper food safety practices. This ensures that the fish is fresh and handled correctly.
2. Check for freshness: Look for salmon steaks with firm flesh, shiny skin, and a mild ocean-like smell. Avoid any fish with a strong fishy odor or signs of discoloration.
3. Avoid cross-contamination: Be cautious not to let raw salmon or its juices come into contact with other foods, especially those that won't be cooked before consumption.
This easy recipe is perfect for any special occasion or a family meal. These simple tips will help you tremendously in creating a 5 star rating meal! This flaky salmon doesn’t miss with the delicious mild flavor. That you will enjoy!!😁
