instructions Remove salmon from the refrigerator and let it reach room temperature(30 minutes). Gently pat dry the salmon fillet with paper kitchen towels to remove any excess moisture. Season the salmon fillet with salt and pepper. If the salmon fillet is thick then use more salt to season. how to pan fry the salmon Place a large wide frying pan over low-medium heat and pour in the oil. Swirl the pan to spread the oil. Leave the pan over medium heat for a minute and a half. The oil should be hot but should not be smoking. Gently place the salmon fillet in the pan, skin side down. Once you’ve placed the salmon fillet skin side down, avoid moving the pan or the salmon around. The aim here is to let the heat and oil help cook the skin of the salmon until it turns crispy. This can take 9-12 minutes depending on how much heat is used. IF you are using a thinner piece of fillet then the time frame would be between 6-7 minutes. It helps to have a timer around so you can keep track of the time spent getting the skin crispy. You’ll notice visually how the fillet is cooking, as the salmon skin cooks, the heat moves upwards gently cooking the salmon fillet. Only the top of the fillet should retain the pink hue before you flip the salmon. Use a spatula to do this. Cook with fillet with the fleshy side facing down for 3 minutes. For a thinner fillet, cook for 2 minutes. As a personal preference, I like to gently pan fry the sides for a few seconds(less than 30 seconds)which is not necessary but can be done. Flip again to skin side down, cook for another 1-2 minutes and then remove the salmon fillet onto a plate. Let the salmon cool for a minute and serve over steamed rice, stir-fried veggies, and a few slices of lime.
