Pan Fried Un-Skinned Salmon Fillets: Low Stress Healthy Fish Dish


It is hard to go wrong with salmon and it is a favorite fish dish for many. Salmon is one of those super foods that is delicious and good for you, meaty, juicy, high in Omega-3 and protein and yet low in calories and saturated fat.

This lovely pink fish can be cooked in many different ways. My favorite way to cook salmon is to pan-fry it. Pan-Fried Salmon is simple and fast, with beautifully crusted skin that seals in the fish's flavor.
This dish is healthy, tasty and is a perfect meal for those with busy lifestyles who still want to enjoy great food but don't want to spend hours of preparation and cooking!

Serves: 2
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Estimated Cost: $10
Ingredients:
  • 2 Salmon filets with skin intact
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Olive oil
Preparations
  1. Rub the salmon with olive oil to coat and sprinkle with crushed sea salt over the oiled skin.
  2. Cook salmon in a pan on high heat skin side down, for 3-4 minutes until skin is crisp. Do not turn the fish over until the skin is golden and crisp.
  3. When the skin is crispy turn over carefully with a spatula. Cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately with side dish of choice.
Husband Says: "Can't go wrong with salmon really. There's a reason why its so popular. I hope they never go extinct. That would make husband sad. Husband no like being sad. Husband like salmon. If I were a bear, I would fish for salmon all day long. Wait, wife is looking at me. What was that? Oh. That is what they do all day long. Right then. OK, so maybe not a bear. I would be a dolphin, but then I might end up in a tuna net and eating myself in a tuna fish sandwich. Right. Back to the point. Salmon is good. The wife's salmon is perfectly cooked for dolphins, bears or humans. It doesn't matter your species, its good. Fin."

I really like the taste of salmon and this is the perfect way to showcase its great flavor. Sometimes people over do it with preparing this fish with several ingredients and the taste gets lost. Well done!
