  1. Rinse the salmon fillets and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels; season with sea salt.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Gently lay the salmon into the hot oil with the skin side facing up and cook until the the flesh side is golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes; turn and continue cooking until the skin side is slightly browned, about 5 minutes more. Remove the salmon from the skillet, allowing any oil to drain from the fish back into the pan.
  4. Remove the skin from the salmon fillets; fry the skin in the oil remaining in the skillet until crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve the crispy skin with the salmon.

You just gotta love the simplicity.

This is a very simple, basic recipe. I think it could be picked up a notch with maybe a little lemon juice, perhaps a pinch of onion or garlic powder? I enjoyed it more than the rest of my famil...

This was really good and really simple!

This was SO easy to make and it tasted as good as any other way I've cooked salmon. Way easier than using the ridged pan I use in the broiler. I love the flavor that sea salt gives salmon. I ...
