Costco Salmon Milano – Buy it

We have this dish often because it is so easy to prepare and great for entertaining. If you are a Costco shopper look for the Costco Salmon Milano with Basil Pesto Butter in the fish case. It is ready to bake in a 400-degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes. It is delicious, tasty, and a somewhat healthy dish. I suggest baking and serving the Salmon the day you buy it at Costco. We purchased three containers of Costco Salmon Milano with Basil Pesto Butter at $10.99 per lb for a luncheon party of 10 people. There was plenty of the Salmon for all. Everyone loved the Salmon and were more enthusiastic when we told them the Salmon was ready to cook with no prep required. This is an easy way to entertain. Follow the packages cooking directions and cannot miss.

Wines with the Salmon Milano

With the Salmon in your cart head over the wine department and look for the Pinot Noir section. Classic food and wine pairing are Pinot Noir with Salmon. The wine makes the Salmon taste better and vice-versa. The bigger, the Pinot Noir the better it matches with this Salmon dish. Another excellent match with this dish is a light Grenache or Garnacha.  Don’t forget a sourdough bread to go with the Salmon and wine. Sourdough and Wine

Don’t worry about having leftovers of this Salmon dish. Two things we love doing with leftovers, a Salmon Salad Sandwich or making Salmon patties or cakes. We also like to use leftover Salmon in pasta dishes. Try this Lemon Pasta with Salmon.

    great salmon dinner dish -so esay-paired with jasmine rice and yellow squash

  2. Hi Joe,
    Can you freeze salmon Milano?

    • Joe Becerra says

      I am not sure about that. You can probably freeze it the day you buy it. Check Google.


      • Yes i divide into three portions, vacuum seal two and put in the freezer!

        • Yes, vacuum sealing is a must. I remove the pesto butter to freeze by itself, then vacuum seal salmon. I then thaw by placing salmon package in hot water. Place butter on salmon in a small casserole. Careful: it’s easy to overbake!


    does the pesto contain pine nuts?

  4. says

    Does anyone know how many days the salmon is good for?

  5. I love this Cosco Salmon with Basil Pesto Butter. We divide it up into 3 packages and freeze them. It’s delicious.

  6. Anthony Jaques says

    I need cooking instructions. I froze them without writing them down. If anyone can help, we’d appreciate it

  7. George Mitchell says

    Just cooked it 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Salmon should be at 145 degrees

  8. Donnette Russell says

    I love this salmon, however with all the talk about farmed fish being bad for you, can anyone address this? I stopped buying it, but boy, I sure love it. Thank you!

  9. Why do you have to cook it the same day you buy it? Can you cook it the next day? Is it as good if you freeze it and do you freeze the butter too?
