He removed the skin left Bones and portioned to 4 oz for a salad (which is fine) but the wants to serve 2 4 oz as the dinner portion. Otherwise cut to a 9 oz portion. We don't poach our salmon. What is the typical portion size? I have always done 4oz salad-6oz dinner.

The typical portion size for a dinner is 6oz, although I have seen bigger portions up to 9oz or so. But, i agree.....4oz for salads and lunches and 6oz for dinners.

What do you think about serving the 2 - 4 ounce as the dinner. I think I am going insane. Why did I go to school and work so had to watch it go backwards.

So he pulls of the skin, then cuts salmon steaks? Because if you filet the salmon you won't have bones.

Am I getting this right because this just seems odd.

I'd like to go out to dinner and get a 9 oz portion of salmon because I love salmon.
But whatever may be typical, if you adjust the price for the increased food cost, then size isn't an issue. Serving the larger portion for the smaller portion price is, of course, foolish.
Leaving the bones in though is a rookie mistake.

Kuan....it sounds like he filleting the salmon but leaving the pin bones in.
