Salmon is one of our favorite types of fish. It’s always moist, flaky and full of flavor. That’s assuming you cook it right of course. I’ve had very dry salmon in expensive restaurants more time than I can count. I don’t think I can recall a time I had a nice moist and perfectly cooked piece of salmon at a restaurant. I’ve given up on eating salmon outside and stuck to cooking it at home instead.
