    1. Harry – Definitely worth a try! Trout is a little less firm than salmon, so it may not work perfectly, but it’s a great alternative.

  1. So me and my husband tried cooking the salmon steaks last night but it would not cook? We set the oven to 350 and cooked the steaks for 20 mins, then 40, and finally we gave up. It would not cook. When we opened the aluminum foil and smelt the fish it made us gag from the smell. What did I do wrong? I admit i’m an amatuer cook but seriously? The recipe looks so easy! I seriously need your advise as to where I went wrong. Thank you in advance!- Melanie Cross

    1. Melanie Cross – I honestly have never heard of anything like that. Was your oven actually on 350? I know that’s a dumb question, but my mom has an oven that seems like it’s on and says 350, but it’s not actually on and baking until you press the “on” switch or something like that. I don’t know any other reason why it would not have cooked. Salmon usually cooks very quickly at 350 and you know it’s cooking because it goes from red/pink to a lighter shade and it gets flaky. Maybe your salmon was not actually salmon? Sorry – not sure…
