I normally bake my salmon but recently tried it this way. My family thought it was great and requested I make it this way again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pat salmon dry and generously season both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a 12 inch nonstick skillet until hot but not smoking.
  3. Carefully add salmon filets and sear until well browned, about 4 minutes.
  4. Turn salmon over and sear other side until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes more.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges.

My favorite way with salmon. Only works well with high quality salmon because the flavor shines beautifully. I especially like this with lots of black pepper.
