Pan Seared Salmon is my go-to for throwing together a quick weekinight meal that is both healthy and delicious.



1 Tablespoon olive oil

1 pound salmon

Pinch of salt

Pinch of freshly ground pepper

1/2 lemon


Heat a large non-stick pan on the stove top to a medium heat.

Cut your salmon into 4 equal portions. Leave skin on and remove any bones.

Salt and pepper each side.

Once the pan is hot, drizzle olive oil in pan followed by your salmon placing it skin side up first. Cook for 3 minutes.

Flip the salmon and cook another 4 minutes.

Squeeze a lemon wedge over each portion and serve.


The skin is kept in the salmon. You can easily remove it before serving or serve with skin on.
