How should I season salmon?
It’s super simple and quick. I like to do the following steps:
- Pour olive oil on top of the fillets and then use your fingers to rub it in.
- Season to taste with salt, black pepper, dried thyme and garlic powder.
- Or if you like spicy food you can use smoked paprika, chili powder, or cumin. Yummy!

Do you eat salmon skin?
Oh yes. Salmon skin is considered safe to eat. In fact then skin is as healthy as in the salmon and it’s also delicious when you stir-fry it. I like to cook salmon recipes in my cast iron skillet, so the skin gets super extra crispy!
What temperature should salmon be cooked?
The USDA recommends a minimum internal temperature of 145°F, which you can measure at the thickest part of the fillet using a meat thermometer. You can also know when salmon flakes easily with a fork.
