How to Make a Traditional Baked Potato

Gone are the days when you wrap a potato in aluminum foil and bake in the oven. Did you know, using this method will steam the potato and not allow the potato to bake, properly? Russet or Idaho potatoes are best for baking.

Want to make the most incredible baked potato? Follow this method:

  • Scrub the potato and dry completely with a paper towel.
  • Coat the outside of the potato with olive oil and coarse salt.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the potato is fork tender.
  • TIP: Using a flat cast iron pan makes for a wonderful crispy bottom on the baked potato.

Let’s Talk Salmon

Typically, Faroe Island salmon is my go-to when creating salmon recipes. This type of salmon is farm-raised. However, it is raised in a contained area of the salmon’s natural habitat. The fat lines in this salmon make it difficult to overcook, and become dry.

If you are looking for a sustainable, wild-caught salmon alternative, King (Chinook) salmon is a great option. Sockeye has a rich flavor and texture and can also be used in this Maple Glazed Baked Potato recipe.
