Fish typically does not require a lengthy cooking time, which makes it both tricky and ideal to serve when hosting friends and family at home. The short cooking time of fish makes it great for hosts who want to spend more time with their guests and less time cooking. However, that same short cooking time means it’s easy to overcook fish. And no one wants to serve or eat dry, overcooked fish.

Slow-baking and slow cooking could prove the best of both worlds for cooks who want to serve fish but avoid overcooking it. This recipe for “Salmon with Spiced Red Lentils and Bacon” from Andrew Schloss’’ “Cooking Slow: Recipes for Slowing Down and Cooking More” (Chronicle Books) includes directions for both slow-baking and slow cooking. Hosts are encouraged to choose whichever option works best for them and enjoy the delicious, flavorful finished product with family and friends.
