Mediterranean Salmon Tips
What type of salmon fillets should you use?
You can use several different types of salmon
to make this Mediterranean salmon recipe. Atlantic or farm-raised salmon offers a delicate, mild character, while coho salmon has a similar flavor but a firmer texture. For a rich, buttery flavor, look to king (chinook) salmon, or sockeye salmon for its vibrant color.
What do you serve with Mediterranean salmon?
This roasted salmon recipe
goes well with other staples in the Mediterranean diet, like couscous, Greek salad, grilled vegetables or orzo salad. If you don’t mind eating the skin, we recommend serving Mediterranean salmon with the skin on, as there are many health benefits from eating salmon skin
Can you make Mediterranean salmon in advance?
You can make Mediterranean salmon in advance. However, we find the recipe achieves its best flavor when cooked just before serving. If you still would like to make it in advance, cook the salmon until the fish is almost cooked through. Then, reheat the salmon in a low-temperature oven—10 to 15 minutes at 300° should do the trick.
How long will Mediterranean salmon last?
Mediterranean salmon is good for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator when stored in an airtight container.—Lindsay Mattison, Taste of Home Contributing Writer
