21 + ways to cook frozen salmon fillets

Here’s the question I recently posted on Facebook:

I’m trying to like fish. I have some frozen salmon fillets. What do I do with them?

My network came through with lots of suggestions.  Here are over 21 suggestions for cooking frozen salmon.

  1. Garlic salt and bake
  2. Marinade them in a mix of ginger, orange juice, and soy sauce, and then grill or broil them
  3. Cook some crescent rolls, get some smoked salmon, sliced thin. Mix some chives in softened cream cheese. Put cheese mix and salmon in crescent rolls. 
  4. I like to bake mine in the oven with a bit of butter, lemon slices, and lemon pepper.
  5. Salmon is a FAVORITE of mine. I use a rosemary and garlic seasoning from TONES. I just sprinkle generously on both sides and pan fry in a bit of olive oil. YUMMY!
  6. Cook them with butter and lemon!
  7. Grill, broil, fry, bake (350, 15 min or so, depending on your size and thickness). Butter, lemon, garlic. Smoke. Poach. Foil packs. Parchment paper packs. Salmon is my favorite fish. I would literally eat it every day. I’ve even had it for breakfast with eggs. My favorite is Lemon Caper Salmon.
  8. Teriyaki sauce on salmon is really good.
  9. Marinate them in a mixture of lime juice, Splenda brown sugar, and fresh ginger. Then grill them. So yummy.
  10. 2tsp. garlic 6tblsp. olive oil 1tsp dried basil 1tsp salt 1tsp pepper 1tblsp lemon juice 1tblsp parsley….. marinate 1 hour 375 in oven wrap individually in tin foil and put on a cookie sheet… awesome
  11. Teriyaki or Soy veh on top,then bake! You will love it. We also bake it with cream of mushroom…creamy fish … Kids love it.
  12. Grill after marinade with a sweet marinade (like honey bourbon)
  13. Marinate in fresh orange juice
  14. Not a great fish to start with. Try a whitefish and make fish tacos- cut fish into chunks and sauté in a little butter or oil, garlic, cumin, salt/pepper and lime. Serve in corn tortillas with some chopped cabbage, onion, cilantro, salsa, guac or whatever else you like on tacos. I usually serve it with a side of black beans and rice.
  15. With a dill cream sauce yum….my kids love salmon
  16. Broil with dill and butter
  17. Drizzle with honey and broil
  18. 350-400 degrees, 15-20 minutes, depends on how thick they are… they should be flaky and not translucent when done. I drizzle with lemon juice and use a salmon seasoning I bought.
  19. I like it baked w salt, pepper, lemon. I also cook it on my griddle so it gets a little crispy.  Whatever you do, don’t over cook. Just until it is mostly cooked through and let it rest. It will finish.
  20. I mix 1tsp of soy sauce with 1 tsp of maple syrup and a dash of garlic powder and marinate the salmon in that for a few minutes and then bake it. 
  21. Garlic, dill, and butter broil in the oven….mmmm

I ended up using olive oil, lemon and dill, but will definitely try several of these suggestions!
