Is it ready yet?
Flawlessly arranged fish is damp, delightful, and succulent. At the point when the salmon is overcooked, it dries out and loses its' delicious flavor. To cook salmon flawlessly, expel it from the warmth source before it shows up completely cooked, while there is still some translucency in the center. Fish continues cooking for a few minutes in the wake of being expelled from the warmth. On the off chance that you hold up until the point when the fish looks done, it will be dry when it achieves the table.
After 6-8 minutes of cooking, check to see if the fish is done. Take a sharp knife and use it to peek into the thickest part. If the fish is flaky, but still has some translucency in the middle, it is done. It should not, however, look raw. Please refer the picture on right. This is what it should look like when you remove it from the heat. (Taken from the book, Fishes and Dishes.)
