Defrosting Tips for Salmon

Before you begin, ensure your salmon is properly thawed to maintain its quality and taste. Here's how to do it safely:

  • Refrigerator Thawing: Place the salmon in the refrigerator, allowing it to thaw gradually. Small portions like individual filets may take a full day to thaw. Once thawed, your salmon should be safe to use within a day or two for the best quality.
  • Cold Water Thawing: For quicker thawing, submerge the salmon in cold water while still in its leak-proof packaging, changing the water every 30 minutes. This method typically takes about 2-3 hours for a few pounds of salmon. 

Baking the Salmon

Preheat your oven to 425°F. Lightly season the salmon with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Bake the salmon for 20 minutes or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Once cooked, remove the salmon from the oven and increase the temperature to 450°F. If you baked the salmon with the skin on, carefully remove the skin after baking.

Combine the cooked salmon, mayo, cream cheese, and sriracha (optional) in a bowl. Mix thoroughly; the more you mix, the finer the salmon pieces. In a casserole dish, start by layering rice (cook it according to the instructions on the package) on the bottom. Sprinkle a generous amount of furikake over the rice, then add the salmon mixture. Place the dish in the oven at 450°F and bake for 10 minutes. To achieve a golden and toasty top, broil for 3 more minutes.

Finish off with a sprinkle of sliced green onions. Serve with roasted seaweed, cucumbers, and avocado for a complete sushi experience you'll enjoy at every bite.
