Fast and delicious…

Salmon with salad is my go-to lunch when I need to feel nourished but don’t have much time.

I live in one of the country’s biggest salmon producing states and until recently had only ever had success in cooking them on the bbq. But a perfect, crispy skinned seared salmon is much easier that you might think.

I’ve tried the celebrity chef tricks such a starting your pan cold and bringing it to temp, or cooking it in all kinds of weird ways but this method has (so far) proved to be fool proof.

If I can make it, you can.

Make it. Share it. Tag me.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets, approx 250 grams each

  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  • Heat a good quality non-stick frying pan over med-high heat.
  • Place salmon fillets, skin side down, into the frying pan.
  • Using your hand, firmly press the fillets flat to the surface of the pan and hold for about 30 seconds.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes and gently flip.
  • Cook for a further 2-3 minutes. It really is that easy! The secret is the non-stick pan (although you could try a folded piece of baking paper instead) and the pressing of the fillets to get an even sear.Serve over wilted spinach and with a healthy dollop of my Creamy Herb Dressing.
