This is a quick take on how to cook a pan-seared salmon with a sauce of some kind.
Farmed salmon is cheaper these days. They freeze well and defrost quickly. My Mum-in-law's helper will pack the fillets individually and we will take out a few on nights when we are doing a quick dinner.
This recipe is quick and simple. Pan-sear it. Set aside. Cook the sauce and then pour it over the salmon fillets. Garnish and serve.
Pat dry your fillets. If it is still a bit cold on the inside, it's alright. Heat up a pan. Add a very thin layer of oil. Note that salmon is an oily fish and you really do not need a lot of oil in the pan. You just need some to ensure the fish is not burned or stuck to the pan. Non-stick pan is good for this.
