What is the Ideal Salmon Internal Temp?

The optimal internal temperature for cooked salmon is 145°F (63°C). Cooking your salmon to this temperature ensures that it's safe to eat, while still retaining its flavor and moisture. The easiest way to check this is by using a food thermometer. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the fish to get an accurate reading.

Why is Internal Temperature Important?

Ensuring the right internal temp for fish is crucial for both safety and taste. The proper cooked temperature for fish kills off any potential bacteria and parasites. Additionally, Seatopia takes the extra mile to assure you by conducting comprehensive mercury testing for every lot, so you can savor the flavors without the negative impact on your health or the environment.

Temp of Done Fish vs. Different Types of Fish

Different fish may require different internal temperatures for cooking. However, the general rule of thumb is to aim for an internal fish temperature of 145°F. Whether you're cooking a hearty tuna steak or a delicate tilapia filet, this temperature is a safe bet for both flavor and safety.

How to Check Fish Internal Temp

  1. Invest in a Good Thermometer: A digital probe thermometer provides the most accurate reading.
  2. Check the Thickest Part: Always insert the thermometer into the thickest portion of the fish.
  3. Wait for 10 Seconds: Give the thermometer some time to provide an accurate reading.

Can You Refreeze Fish?

After you've achieved the perfect internal temp for fish, you might wonder if you can refreeze the leftovers. The general rule is that it's safe to refreeze fish that has been cooked to the correct internal temperature, as long as it's been cooled and stored properly.

Expert Tips

  • Even Cooking: To make sure your fish cooks evenly, let it sit out for about 15-20 minutes before cooking.
