3. Cover the cleaned salmon in cheesecloth.
4. Place the fish in the pan after removing it from heat.
5. Cover the pan and cook the fish over medium heat.
6. Remove the fish from the pan using 2 large forks with one fork at each end of the fish, which is pierced through the cheesecloth.
7. Arrange the whole fish package on a hot platter and remove the cloth by turning the fish over and pulling it slowly under the fish.
