Salmon in a skillet
For A New Salmon Experience, Cube The Fish Prior To Cooking
Regardless of the way you like to cook your salmon, there's a technique that all salmon lovers must try: Cutting the salmon into cubes before cooking it.
By cutting it into cubes, you'll get a crispier surface than you would if you cooked a traditional filet. This is especially crucial if you want a crispy exterior.
You can cook cubed salmon on the stovetop or in the oven. The pieces will cook faster while ensuring that they cook all the way through.
Any type of salmon will do for the cubing method, so you can opt for whatever salmon you usually cook with. For the oven, preheat it to the highest temperature setting.
While the oven preheats, you can cut up the salmon (skinless is best) into cubes, then coat the salmon with your preferred spices or marinade.
Set the cubes on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Once the oven is hot, bake the salmon for 10 minutes. If you want it crispy but not too crispy, use a shorter cooking time.
For the stovetop method, cube skin-on or skinless salmon. Next, marinate the salmon with your preferred choice of marinade for at least 30 minutes.
Put a skillet on a stove set to high heat. Cook the skin-on cubes skin-side down for three minutes, then flip and cook the other side for the same amount of time.
