How to Cook Salmon

How will you know when the salmon is fully cooked? Well, technically once the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145F the fish is fully cooked. However, we’re working with small pieces of fish and we’ve discovered an easier way to tell when the salmon is fully cooked.

The best way to tell is to allow your salmon to cook until it's white half way up, then flip and cook some more - you'll get it perfect every time! Depending on how big of pieces you cut the salmon into, you may need to cook it a little on each of the sides. The salmon should become flaky once fully cooked and the prosciutto will be nice and crispy on the outside.
