Who likes Salmon

Recommended Posts

I had a very nice older gentleman tell me to soak Salmon fillets in milk overnight and the next day take out, pat dry with absorbent towel and cook as normal, either crumbed or battered or plain. You will be amazed, it has a totally different taste. Very similar to Mulloway.

A bit fiddly but on the bigger ones skin them and cut out the dark bit down the lateral line. Then you end up with 2 pieces out of one fillet but improves flavour. Fresh slamon is nice baked and smaller ones filleted but if they go in freezer its bait for me.

if I've got a few I usually remove the fillets then cut down the lateral line & keep the bottom 1/2 of the fillet as a slab bait, then skin the top 1/2 of the fillet, remove the dark blood so I end up with a white fillet, must be eaten fresh. as with kayakfisher, if it goes in the freezer it's bait quality onlyYorky

I like to skin mine as i find it helps heaps. Like yorky said-if it for the freezer its history-bit like snook. Ive heard of the milk idea and we use it on squid it makes them tastier and more tender. I also like to smoke my salmon but its a bastard keeping them lit :huh:

Thanks spog777, went for an all nighter last night, started at Pt Noarlunga Jetty tried everything got none. Then went to the boat ramp at O'Sullivans and had the same luck. Spose there is always next time eh. Theres plenty of fish in the sea regardless of what the pencil pushers say!!!!

Hi.As others have said salmon does not freeze particularly well but can be frozen for a short duration if prepared properly. Salmon which has been frozen can be used in place of tuna in a mornay, in a fish chowder or used to make fish cakes/patties.

my missus' favourite, 1-2kg bled put on ice then turned into boneless skinless fillets (6-8 per fish this size)with the red meat trimed off, crumbed then shallow fried within 4-5 hours of being pulled from the water and they are about as good as any fish you will get.
