  • Salmon (however many you wish to cook)( I use frozen but fresh is better but not too oily)
  • Black Pepper (to taste)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Olive oil (for frying)
  • Garlic (to taste)


    1. (If salmon is frozen thaw before using). Start by heating up a frying pan with a little oil (do not let it smoke) you may wish to put some finely chopped garlic in it but don't let it burn.
    2. Lay salmon out on a plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides to taste.
    3. When the pan starts to smoke just a little bit, put in the salmon. Cook for about 2 minutes turning it half way through the cooking time.
    4. Serve. Goes well with asparagus and hollandaise sauce.
