Kraft Kitchen tips:

SERVING SUGGESTION Round out the meal with hot cooked rice and steamed vegetables. For added flavor, drizzle fish lightly with fresh lemon juice before serving.

COOKING KNOW-HOW When salmon is done, it will appear opaque and flake easily with fork.

FOOD FACTS Check salmon fillets for bones before cooking by running fingers over surface. Small bumps are usually a sign of bones - use tweezers to remove them.
