Q:

How long should I bake stuffed salmon?

A:

Stuffed salmon should be baked until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, which takes approximately 10 minutes per inch of thickness in a 450-degree oven.

Salmon should be cooked until the meat is opaque and the flesh just begins to flake easily when prodded by a fork. The 10-minute rule works for any cooking method and whether the salmon is stuffed or not. The stuffed salmon should be measured at its thickest point. The stuffed salmon should be baked in an uncovered shallow dish. The FDA recommends using a meat thermometer to test the internal temperature of the fish, aiming for 145 degrees F.

    How long should mahi mahi be baked?

    A:

    The proper technique for baking mahi mahi is similar to that of baking any other type of fish; exact baking time will depend on the temperature of the oven and the size and thickness of the fish fillet. Fin fish should be cooked until it has an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit and is opaque and flaky, according to foodsafety.gov. It is preferable for fish to be lightly undercooked rather than exactly done as it is removed from the oven, as it will continue to cook for a few minutes as it cools.
