2 (3 ounce) fillets
salmon, with skin
sea salt to taste
Can't get any simpler than this. It works. It's straight forward. Crunchy skin, beautifully cooked inside. If all you want is plain salmon, this is it.
This recipe is perfect if ........A). you don't know how to cook, B). your imagination has dried up, C). your camping, D). you have a really fresh (freshly caught) piece of salmon and you don't want to adulterate it with any diverting seasonings. In my past, I have utilized all categories A to D.
I did pan fry my salmon two nights ago, I used salt and pepper, two tablespoons unsalted butter and a splash of sesame oil to the burning (smoking). Served with a rice pilaf, a green salad with a vinaigrette dressing. With a cold crisp white sauvignon, it's a meal to serve a queen!
I made this last night and it was good, quick and easy. Very simple way to get dinner on the table quick.
I like to coat with honey and sesame seeds, and marinade in soy sauce, before pan frying with sesame oil
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 family did - they were diplomatic and ate theirs, but didn't want any more...
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 followed the recipe but did not do the salmon skin. Next time I will.
This is my favourite way to cook salmon! I use rice bran oil (it tolerates higher heat than olive oil) and a little butter. Altho I sort of do it the opposite...cook skin side down for about 7 min. then turn it just to brown the top. Then you don't have to mess around taking the skin off to make "crackle". The crackle is delish!
