Salmon is a rich source of vital omega-3 fatty acids. It's also delicious.
Here's a simple recipe that anyone can easily prepare in minutes.
Ingredients (serves one)
1 portion of salmon fillets (200 g)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tsp. Nordursalt sea salt
Pinch of parsley, washed and minced
Salmon and salt.
Parsley and salt on top while skin is sizzling.
Heat frying pan on high and add butter. While it is heating, season the salmon well with salt on both sides.
When the butter starts to smoke, gently lay the salmon fillet in the center of the pan skin-side down. Sprinkle the top with parsley. Sear for 3 minutes.
Flip the salmon and sear flesh-side down for 2 minutes.
Flip again so skin-side is down. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover pan. (This helps the salmon to steam and retain its juicy goodness!)
Begin checking after 5 - 7 minutes. Salmon is done when it still looks dark pink and plush, but not raw, in the center. Remove from heat.
Done! Serve immediately with an IPA and your choice of sides. We recommend steamed asparagus and sweet potato or an endive and orange salad, if you're feeling fancy.
