We know how tricky storing leftovers can be; you want it to stay fresh for as long as possible. Here are a few tips for storing your yummy leftover salmon:
- Properly stored, cooked salmon will last about 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. Place completely cooled salmon in an airtight container; close and store in the fridge.
- You can also freeze cooked salmon. Place completely cooled salmon in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags. Keep in the freezer for up to 4 months.
