The Perfect Salmon Recipe
What You’ll Need:
6 oz skin-on salmon fillet
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
How to Make It:
Use a cast-iron or carbon steel pan (not aluminum or stainless steel). As a rule of thumb, you want a dark cooking surface.
Turn your stovetop up to high heat and be sure to preheat the oven to 175°C. Heat 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil in the pan. Dry a 6-ounce skin-on salmon fillet with paper towels and season it with salt.
When the oil is sizzling hot - look for wisps of smoke - add the fish, skin side down, and gently press on it with a spatula.
Wait 5 minutes; the fish will unstick from the pan. Put the pan into the oven and roast 5 minutes. Spoon any leftover oil over it; add freshly ground pepper and a spritz of lemon. Serve with brown rice and sauteed spinach.
