    Since sun is going down for long now. and Salmon is one of rich sources of vitamin D. And not to mention it is a source of lot of other minerals and oils especially required in cold countries.
    So I would like to know how to cook a salmon, I bought it but donno how long is it supposed to be cooked/boiled/fried etc.

    Any good dishes which anyone would recommend along with recipes which are made with salmon.
    No sushi is not such a good idea since it is hard to make.

    Best option to retain the vitamins is to grill/bake it in an oven.

    You can marinate it with lemon, salt and oil, leave it for less than an hour, and then cook(bake) in oven.

    10-15 mins at 200 degrees C should do it.

    For grilling, just pack the meat(marinated) in foil and put on the grill. Keep flipping sides for about 7-10 mins.

    Fish is generally bland, so go with a strong flavor. You can put garlic etc also to increase the flavor.

    I really have no problem with bland food to be frank. If texture is fine it should be ok.
    Do you reckon boiling is bad ? I prefer to fry ingredient and make it like a sabzi/tarkari/bhaji/curry.

    Boiling would be fine, but better if you make it into a soup or something ( the nutrients stay in the water ). However I am not sure how well the vitamins would survive in the hot water.

    Btw, you could take a daily dose of cod liver oil as well.

    i was diagnosed with a Vit D deficiency, on supplements from Amway and a pouch of 60,000 UD or something that has to be taken once a week.

    amway? get the yellow cod oil capsules from india.

    be careful about limits of consumption - it has a 'garam taasir' if you know what i mean. can cause nose bleeds and free flowing bowel.

    Yep, apparently their products are better than the peddlers who show an undying loyalty to them.

    I am not talking any capsules. There are food sources like salmon and others. I might have to consume them a bit more.

    If you are okay with bland food (which is amazing) cook it in the easiest simplest way and have it frequently. Salmons/fish is one of the best things you can have on earth.
