Salmon Steaks

Salmon Steak v. Salmon Fillet

A fish steak is cut crosswise (perpendicular to the backbone), slicing via the bone, whereas a fillet is cut lengthwise parallel to the bone.

Can you buy boneless salmon steaks?

Depending on your fishmonger, sure. But as a fashionable rule, salmon steaks have extra (and larger) bones than fillets.

How do you prepare dinner salmon steaks?

You can pan-fry, bake, or grill salmon steaks. We love pan-frying them in a skillet due to the fact they take the handiest 10 minutes to cook dinner.
