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.
4 (12-oz.) salmon steaks (bones removed)
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Freshly chopped parsley, for serving
- Season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and butter. Add salmon and cook until bottom is golden 5 minutes, then flip. Add garlic, lemon juice, honey, and red pepper flakes. Cook until salmon is cooked through, another 5 minutes, spooning sauce over salmon as it cooks.
- Garnish with parsley before serving.
