Ingredients

Directions

  1. Bring the salmon to room temperature 10 minutes before cooking. 
  2. Warm a large nonstick skillet with oil over medium-low heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Raise the heat to medium-high. Place the salmon, skin-side up in the pan. Cook until golden brown on 1 side, about 4 minutes. Turn the fish over with a spatula, and cook until it feels firm to the touch and the skin is crisp if desired, about 3 minutes more. 
  3. The skin can be served or removed easily with a knife or spoon. 
  4. Transfer to a plate and serve as desired.

Cook’s Note

Serving suggestions: honey mustard, horseradish mashed potatoes, mesclun greens.
