If you want a little challenge you can make your own Everything bagel spice. It is a mixture of common ingredients you probably have in your pantry right now. It includes poppy seeds, toasted sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, and salt. But if you’re like most people you can go to a trader joe’s and get the seasoning pre-made.
Like i said before salmon is my favorite fish here are some questions that most people have when dealing with this tasty fish.
How can you tell when my Everything Bagel Salmon is cooked to perfection?
Salmon will change from translucent red or raw color to an opaque pinkish color as it cooks. For the average piece of salmon it should take 6-8 minutes of cooking. Take a sharp knife to peek into the thickest part. If the meat is beginning to flake, but still has a little translucency in the middle, it is done cooking.
When I’m cooking my salmon white stuff comes out. What is it?
The white stuff is totally harmless, it’s coagulated protein also known as albumin. It is also the same thing as egg whites.
Salmon skin can I eat it?
Salmon skin is traditionally considered safe to eat. The skin has most of the same minerals and nutrients contained in salmon flesh, which may be an excellent addition to your diet. There are some things to consider when choosing whether to eat the salmon skin, such as the source and quality of the fish.
