Pan Seared Salmon is my go-to for throwing together a quick weeknight meal that is both healthy and delicious. Pair with some rice and oven Roasted Green Beans for a full family meal that is on the table in 20 minutes.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound salmon, wild caught or farm raised (my favorite is wild caught sockeye)
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cracker pepper
Preheat a large non -stick pan on the stove top on a medium heat.
Cut your salmon into 4 even portions. Leave skin on and remove any bones.
Salt and pepper each side.
Once the pan is hot, drizzle a tablespoon of 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.
Serve. The skin will still be on the salmon, you can easily remove it before serving or serve with skin on.
