m. c. de marco: The New Kitchen Cookbook

Costco Salmon

Costco has big bags of single portions of frozen boneless, skinless salmon. The instructions on the back say to defrost in running cold water for 20 minutes, but I defrost in still cold water for 30 minutes.


I coat the salmon in a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with salt, dill, thyme, and tarragon. The instructions say to cook 15-20 minutes at 350°, but I find that even 15 minutes is usually too much. I haven’t determined the correct cooking time, though.


See my recipe for Panko-Crusted Salmon, Spicy Salmon, or Pesto Salmon.
