Method

  1. Generously season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Put the oil and butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, swirling around the pan until melted and foaming, then turn up the heat. Once the butter starts bubbling, add the salmon fillets to the pan, skin-side-down, and fry for 3 mins until crisp. Flip the fillets over, lower the heat and cook for 2 mins more, then drizzle with the lemon juice. Transfer the salmon to a plate and baste with any of the buttery juices left in the pan.

This was utterly delicious. Dead easy and super quick. Served with bok choy and couscous. Will definitely be making again.
