3 Ways to Cook Salmon Quickly

Pan-searing salmon will give it a nice crust.

Salmon is a delicious and healthy choice for dinner. Best of all, there are several ways to cook salmon quickly and with little fuss.

One of the easiest ways to cook salmon quickly is to rub it with a mixture of herbs and spices and grill it. A six-ounce portion of salmon will take less than 10 minutes on a hot grill. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, try using an indoor grill or grill pan.

Baking salmon takes longer than grilling it but can still get this fish on the table in under 30 minutes. Just brush salmon with butter, white wine, and lemon juice, then sprinkle it with herbs and seasonings before baking it in the oven.

Searing salmon is quicker than baking it and it adds a crisp, golden crust to the fish. Try searing the salmon in a hot pan with olive oil and seasonings and you’ll have dinner in about 20 minutes.
