Be sure not to overcook your Wild Alaska Salmon as you will lose tenderness, flakiness and overall flavor. Look out for the white film that appears on the top of your Wild Alaska Salmon during the cooking process. This is all the lovely fat rising to the top. Once you see the fat, you’re in tasting territory. Sample a small piece from the center before serving.
