DIRECTIONS

  • Spray a large cast-iron skillet or stainless steel skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat it over medium-high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add half of the butter, and let it melt.
  • The pan should be hot enough that the butter bubbles but doesn’t brown.
  • Add in the salmon, skin side down and top it with half the lime juice and half of the salt.
  • Sear the salmon (cook it without moving it) for about 5 minutes until it starts to cook through.
  • Add the remaining half of the butter to the pan and flip the salmon.
  • Decrease the heat slightly; top the salmon with the rest of the lime juice and a little more salt.
  • Cook it for 3-5 minutes until the salmon flakes easily and is cooked through.
  • Remove the salmon to a plate and top it with any pan drippings.
