Keep It Simple With This Boiled Salmon Recipe

Boiled salmon is a simple dish that is healthy, tasty and extremely simple to make.

A bit of experience will go a long way in knowing exactly how long to boil your fish. If you’re new to this just follow the directions to a tee. The last thing you want is to serve anyone undercooked salmon.

On the flipside, you don’t want to overcook your boiled salmon either. Immediately remove it from the pan once done because it will be rubbery, watery, and colorless if overcooked.

A dish of dressed cucumber usually accompanies this fish.
