Thankfully, salmon can be found everywhere from your local grocery store's seafood section to warehouse stores.

Where to buy salmon fillets

The best thing to do is observe the color and texture of the fish as it cooks. From translucent red, it should turn opaque light pink.

How to tell if baked salmon is done

In general, salmon fillets cook at 375°F for 15 to 20 minutes. Internal temperature, meanwhile, should be between 120°F to 145°F.

What temperature should salmon be cooked to
