Use the Freshest Fish Possible

If you have a fish market that’s local and easily accessible to you, then we highly recommend going there to purchase your salmon fillets. The fresher the fish, the easier it is to prepare – and the results will be that much tastier!

How To Store Leftover Baked Salmon

If you want to reuse this leftover baked salmon, I suggest storing it in an airtight container and keeping it in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Then, you can use this salmon again on top of a salad or in some fish tacos.
