Have you ever had an idea in your head for dinner, but when it comes time to cook it, you realize you forgot to thaw the meat?

You either have to choose another entree or find a way to defrost the meat before starting, lengthening the cooking time.

An influencer has a hack to cook salmon directly from the freezer. There are several delicious salmon recipes that the whole family will love, like Mary Berry's parmesan crusted salmon or Gordon Ramsay's flavour packed salmon.

Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help lower cholesterol.


Katie Lee Biegel shared her solution on Instagram, and it is quick and easy. She said you can still bake salmon in the oven, even if it's frozen, and it's still delicious.

To do so, preheat your oven to 230 degrees Celsius. Place the frozen salmon on a parchment lined baking sheet, baking for 8 minutes.

Don't season the fish yet, as it's still rock hard, Biegel said.

Take it out of the oven, then season the salmon with the spices you choose. Once it's coated, put it back in the oven for 10 more minutes.

If your salmon is thicker, it may take 12 to 15 minutes. You can ensure it's done when the internal temperature reaches 63 degrees Celsius.

Finish it off by squeezing a bit of lemon and serve.

Viewers were thrilled in the comments.

Someone said: "I did this for the first time and it came out perfect."

Another shared more helpful tips.

"I have always cooked frozen salmon. Rub a little olive oil over the fish and season it and place in an iron skillet and cook in the oven at 400. Also did the same but wrapped in parchment paper. Delicious! Dinner would never be served if I had to wait for it to thaw out."
