Expert Tips

Cut out the fat by spraying fish steaks with butter-flavored cooking spray instead of using melted butter.

Using garlic butter or an herb butter gives this simple fish dish fantastic flavor.

Refrigerate leftover salmon immediately. Once chilled, it's a tasty addition to tossed green salads.
