How Do You Reheat Leftover Salmon?

Reheat leftover salmon in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 to 17 minutes. The salmon should reach an internal temperature of 145 F at the thickest part of the salmon.

Salmon makes for a healthy, tasty dish that is mild in flavor and rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. When refrigerated properly in a shallow, covered dish right after dinner, salmon can be reheated up to 3 days later. If frozen, leftover salmon can be reheated up to 1 month later.

  1. Prepare the fish
  2. If heating frozen fish, move it from the freezer to the refrigerator to thaw. As an alternative, place the frozen fish in water and change it out every 30 minutes until thawed.

  3. Preheat the oven
  4. Start by preheating the oven to about 350 F. If the salmon is stuffed, turn the oven up to about 400 F. If using the stove top, preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

  5. Warm the salmon
  6. Place the salmon in the oven on a greased pan for between 15 and 17 minutes. If desired, flip once during cooking to help crisp both sides. When using the stove top, cook the fish over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Use oil on the stove top for added flavor.
