Skillet Packet Salmon

Stainless steel and cast-iron skillets worked equally well, but both needed 5 minutes to heat before adding the packet. Six-ounce fillets were the perfect size to fit all four in one packet. If the fillets were thinner than 1 inch or thicker than 1¼ inches, we needed to adjust the cooking time down or up, respectively.




Don’t hesitate to remove the packet from the skillet a little early if you think it’s cooking too quickly. It’s easy to return it to the skillet.

Thank you so much- this solved my problems with reducing the odors associated with cooking fish in a kitchen with really poor ventilation. The texture was perfect even though my filet was thinner than an 1"; it only needed 4 minutes and it sat for 5 minutes.

Pardon the interruption
