simply pop it under the grill, flesh side up with a knob of butter

(how is your neck btw? what did hosp say?)

meant to say, no need to take skin off - flesh will come away from skin easily after it's been cooked

TrinityHasAVampireRhino Mon 09-Nov-09 16:38:43

oh yes, how is your neck riven?

Oh, is it already cooked, bought in a vacuum pack?
I assumed it was a fresh one!

salmon is best cooked in a bit of foil either on its own or else put a sprig of dill and a slice of onion on foil, place fillet on top, seal and cook then serve with creme fraiche.

You could put it in a frying pan skin side down with a little butter for 3 or 4 minutes then flip it over for a minute to 2 peel off skin and eat with crusty bread or veg/potatoes.

Salmon is pretty much the same but cook for a little longer skin side down or cut it into cubes sprinkle with a little soy and honey then pan fry.

...and some rhubarb marmalade, which goes REALLY well with mackerel.
(of course not everyone has a supply of homemade rhubarb marmalade in their pantry..but if you happen to get some, it really is very good!)
