- 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
- 2 teaspoons sugar

To make the salsa, combine all of the ingredients together, mix well, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Swirl in the olive oil, and place salmon in hot pan, skin side down, and sear until skin is crisp. Salmon should turn pinkish white 1/4 inch around the edge. Place the salmon in oven for approximately 5 minutes to finish cooking.
