Directions

  1. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes with a teaspoon of olive oil.
  2. Meanwhile, season the fleshy side of the salmon with salt and pepper and then add it to the pan, skin side down.
  3. Cook the salmon for 4 minutes on the first side, then flip the fillets and cook for 3 minutes on the other side.
  4. Transfer the fish to a plate and let it rest for a minute or two.
  5. To make the sauce, add the cilantro, shallot, lemon, and vinegar to the bowl of the food processor and pulse 15 times, or until everything is combined fully.
  6. Turn the food processor back on and slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream through the feeding tube until the mixture comes together in a smooth paste.
  7. Top the salmon fillets with the cilantro sauce and serve immediately.
