Expert Tips

If the salmon you purchased has skin, remove the skin before cutting the salmon into pieces. To do this, place the fillet, skin side down, on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut between the flesh and skin, angling knife down toward the skin and using a sawing motion. Grip the skin tightly with the other hand after a small portion has been removed.
