- Ready In:
- In a sealable plastic bag combine well the soy sauce, the garlic, the lemon juice, and the sugar, add the salmon, coating it well, and let it marinate, sealed and chilled, for 30 minutes.
- Remove the salmon from the bag, discarding the marinade, pat it dry, and press 2 teaspoons of the pepper onto each piece of salmon, coating it thoroughly.
- In a heavy skillet heat the oil over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it sauté the salmon for 2 minutes on each side, or until it just flakes.
- Transfer the salmon with a slotted spatula to paper towels and let it drain for 30 seconds.

Salmon is not our favorite... and this was TERRIFIC! I plan to make it for my salmon-hating parents and convert them too! I used WAY too much pepper- I dredged the fish in a plateful of it before searing & it was a bit overwhelming- but that was my fault & it was still great! This is the first recipe that makes me want to keep eating salmon! Started with spinach & strawberry salad, then served with a nice pinot noir, lightly glazed brussels sprouts & carrots, and brown rice. Delicious and incredibly healthy! I can't say enough good things about this fish.
