Notes

HOW TO STORE COOKED SALMON
  • Properly storedcooked salmon will last 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. Place completely cooled salmon in an airtight container; close and store in the fridge.
  • You can also freeze cooked salmon. Place completely cooled salmon in covered airtight containers or heavy duty freezer bags. Keep in the freezer for up to 4 months.
