Salmon can be cleaned in a variety of ways, but the most common is to place it in cold water and scrub with a brush.
If you are using a salmon fillet, rinse it off under cold running water. Pat it dry with paper towels. Place the salmon skin-side down on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to make 1/2-inch cuts all over the fish. Turn the salmon so the skin side is now facing the knife and use your fingers to press down on the flesh near the bone, slicing it open along the cuts you made before.
Salmon skin is edible, but it can be a little bitter.
Salmon fillets must be scaled and pinched before cooking.
The grey stuff in salmon is called “gut lining.” Gut lining is a layer of tissue that lines the inside of the salmon’s stomach. It helps the salmon digest its food.
A few simple steps will help remove fish skin without any damage:
1. Wet the skin with cold water.
2. Apply pressure with your hands to break the bond between the skin and the flesh.
3. Rinse the skin with cold water and pat it dry.

Salmon is a great source of protein, but it can be difficult to digest raw. It is best to cook salmon until it is slightly pink in the center and slightly firm to the touch.

No, I do not flip salmon. Salmon is a delicate fish and can easily overcook if flipped.
The general rule of thumb is to pan sear salmon for 2-3 minutes per side. However, this will vary depending on the thickness of the salmon and how hot your pan is.
Gordon Ramsay cooks salmon in a pan by searing it on the outside and then finishing it in the oven.
Salmon is a light pink when fully cooked.
There is no definitive answer as to whether or not you should score your salmon skin. Some people feel that doing so enhances the taste and texture of the salmon, while others believe that it is unnecessary and just a waste of time. Ultimately, it is up to you whether or not you decide to score your salmon skin.
Salmon baking time will depend on the size and thickness of the salmon fillets, but a good rule of thumb is around 15-20 minutes per inch of thickness.
