- 3 teaspoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Salmon Magic
- 1 (8-oz.) salmon fillet, boneless, skinless
Oven PreparationPreheat the oven to 450.
Lightly brush 1 teaspoon of the butter onto the center of a baking sheet, covering an area large enough for the salmon fillet. Place the Salmon Magic on a flat plate and lightly roll the salmon fillet in the seasoning until all the sides are covered and all the seasoning has been applied. Place the fillet, flat side down, on the buttered baking sheet. Spoon the remaining two teaspoons of the butter over the top of the fillet.
Place the fillet in the preheated oven and bake until the surface is golden brown and the fillet is cooked, but still soft and pink on the inside, about five minutes.
Microwave PreparationPlace the Salmon Magic on a flat plate and lightly roll the salmon fillet in the seasoning until all the sides are covered and all the seasoning has been applied. Place the fillet, flat side down, on a microwave safe plate.
Place the fillet in the microwave oven and cook until the temperature in the thickest part of the fillet reaches 140, about two minutes (see *Note).
TIPMicrowaves vary considerably in power, and the size, shape and temperature of the fillet can affect the cooking time. So, it is best to use the temperature as a guide instead of the cooking time. Use a reliable thermometer.
