What's that White Stuff on my Salmon?

Ever cooked salmon and noticed some unappetizing chunky white stuff oozing out of the fish?  If so, don't worry, it won't harm you and it often will appear on even the most perfectly cooked fish, but there are ways to minimize it.

First off, what is that white stuff?  It's albumin - a protein that is pushed out of the fish and gathers on it's surface as it cooks.

To minimize albumin forming, be sure to not overcook the fish!  The more overcooked the salmon is the more albumin you'll have form.  Glazing or brining will also help minimize albumin from forming.
