Whether pan seared, poached, grilled, baked or broiled, one thing remains the same when preparing salmon... it's done when it reaches 145 degrees, as per the FDA. Don’t worry. You won’t have to stick a thermometer into your salmon fillet to make sure it’s cooked thoroughly.
It's actually rather easy to determine whether your salmon has reached the ideal temperature, and all you need is a fork. The consensus is that if the corner of your salmon fillet flakes when you graze your fork over it, it's done.
Remember, it’s supposed to be a little pink on the inside for that melt in your mouth, buttery effect.
My son and I love salmon coated with The Cook Shop Cajun Seasoning Blend. Try it for yourself and thank me later.
