Description

This salmon preparation is so simple, it’s perfect for those of us who only need to feed one or two people. The basic method can be found here, but feel free to change things up any way you’d like!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 10 ounces, weight Salmon Fillets, Center Cut Preferably (about 5 Ounces Per Fillet)
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Dill, to taste

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a stainless steel (or other oven safe) skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. While the oil is getting warm, season the salmon fillets with salt, pepper and dill.

Once the oil is smoking and rippling, throw the salmon fillets skin-side down into the pan and don’t touch them for at least 3 minutes. Once the 3 minutes are up, it’s time to flip over the salmon. Since the pan was nice and hot, your salmon should flip without a problem. However, if it starts to stick, just let the salmon cook a little longer until it releases from the pan. Cook the salmon on the other side for about 2 minutes, or until that side releases from the pan as well.

Flip the salmon back over to the skin side and place the whole pan in the oven for approximately 5 minutes. I say approximately because I usually check for doneness around 2 minutes or so by pushing on it slightly with my finger. If it springs back, but still feels a little squishy, you’re good to go.

I like to serve the fish with a lemon wedge, but you can go the naughty (yummy) route and serve it up with some dill sauce. Enjoy!
