Seared Salmon

  • Preparation and cooking time
    • Total time
  • Easy
  • Serves 1
This is a quick and easy recipe for very tasty salmon.


  • 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)


  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 2
    Lay salmon out on a plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides to taste.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 4
    Serve. Goes well with asparagus and hollandaise sauce.
