|Testing Timer for Grilled Salmon with TasteTimer App|
TasteTimer Grill, Gormaya.com This 99-cents app is a recent discovery of mine and appears to be just what I need to avoid overcooking salmon. TasteTimer provides cooking times for a long list of seafood preparations: baked, fried, poached, seared, roasted, and grilled. It includes a timer for each preparation and promises perfectly grilled seafood, meats, vegetables, and even fruits.
I tested the app's timer by grilling three pieces of salmon on the stove. TasteTimer Grill indicates that boneless salmon should be grilled for three minutes per side. I heated my grill pan and started the timer immediately after I placed all three salmon pieces in the pan. An alarm sounded after three minutes, which was my cue to flip over the salmon and reset the timer.
After three more minutes, I let the salmon rest before cutting a piece. Surprisingly, it was cooked through and more moist than salmon I've grilled in the past. I tend to overcook when I grill, so having this app (in time for Labor Day) promises to make my grilling endeavors successful. The app is available only through iTunes, but non-app users can access the company’s amazing food blog at http://blog.gormaya.com/.
