Tying and Cooking Salmon Steaks
When I purchase salmon steaks, I like to tie them into rounds, so they cook evenly and sit nicely on the plate. I've been a long-time Good Eats fan, so I'll let Alton Brown explain (snagged from YouTube - he explains the salmon steaks at about the 5 minute mark):
I make two changes to the Alton method: First, I place the little bit that gets trimmed from one of the ends of the salmon into the middle of the round. Second, I don't have a grill, so instead I cook the salmon steaks in a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat in a skillet. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of lemon, it's pretty much perfection on a plate.
