{pan-seared wild-caught salmon}

13 Feb


i love salmon! and although it’s not in season just yet, i try to eat it at least twice a month, but ideally i would like to get back to consuming it once a week or more. it’s full of omega 3 fatty acids and healthy lean protein. this particular wild-caught salmon filet was hand-delivered to me by an alaskan fisherman! 🙂

my favourite way to prepare salmon is to pan-sear it. don’t be intimidated, it’s a very easy method.

i simply sprinkle my salmon filet{s} with a little S&P and squeeze a little lemon juice over it, as well.

then, start with a medium-high heat skillet coated with a little olive oil, and place salmon filet in skin-side up. cook for 4-5 minutes, then flip over and finish with skin-side down, another 4-5 minutes. cooking it this way usually allows for the filet to come up easily off the skin when serving. i like to serve mine over a bed of greens or a simple couscous recipe.

bon appetite!

    Articles like this point out the actual ease of cooking a great fish. When your a master chef in your mind and a tv dinner kind of guy in reality it’s nice to know there’s easy alternatives. Once again. TY Audrey

      thank you for all of your support!

      i learned so much about cooking by surrendering to and conquering the idea of feeling intimidated. i’m all about the simplicity… most of the time, it’s actual “time” that is required of us, and that can be the harder part for a lot of folks, as convenience tends to take the wheel.
      i do hope you trade in the microwave for the skillet once in a while… 😉
