The easiest method of cooking salmon. This is easier than poaching salmon as the fish is not likely to break up during cooking.

This is part 2 of the tutorial - Part 1 is here. I've written it over two pages so that there are fewer photographs to load, making it quicker. 

This method of cooking salmon is suitable for any type of fish and it cuts down on the fish smells as it's contained within the foil which you can just throw away immediately after us.

Place the foil parcels in a pan of cold water.

Make sure the pan is big enough to take the salmon in one layer.

putting prepared salmon into a pan of water

Bring the water up to the boil.

When cooking salmon by this method, it doesn't matter how big the piece is - even a whole salmon if you have a big enough pan or a fish kettle - the method is the same.

simmering salmon

Once the pan is boiling, then turn the water off and put the lid on the pan.

Leave until the water is cool - around an hour - you could leave it less, say about 30 minutes.

Then take the salmon out.

cooling salmon

Unwrap the parcel and you will see it is perfectly cooked, moist and well, just perfect - the easiest way of cooking I know.
