Let’s face it; I love all fish, yes, all fish! So naturally, I spend time trying to figure out new ways to prepare it. This pan-fried version is simple, easy, and so darn good.
Salmon Pan Fried
This is one of the easiest ways to prepare salmon. It's a hit at my house!
A nutrient dense meal in 10 minutes
Remove Salmon from packaging and pat dry with a paper towel
Melt butter in a skillet and olive oil, get it pretty hot, then turn to medium to medium high
Place salmon (flesh down, skin up) in the pan, fry on the first side for 3 minutes, then flip and fry another 2 minutes on the skin side
Remove Salmon and add garlic, quickly fry, (be sure not to burn), then add lemon juice
Let this simmer about 30 seconds or so, and add the Salmon back in.
Spoon the juice over the salmon and serve immediately
Extra virgin olive oil: Smoke point: 410 degrees F. Use for sautéeing and frying over medium-high heat, and salad dressings.
