Don't allow protein to foam when cooking salmon

That slightly foamy white substance that appears on the surface of salmon as you cook it is a protein and its presence indicates that the salmon was overcooked and/or cooked at too high a temperature. It's safe to eat, but perhaps you should modify your cooking technique.
