Author Notes

Golden-crisp on top and just barely cooked in the center, this pan-seared salmon is easy to make and elegant to serve.
The ingredients are simple. The key is to start with the right-sized fillets so that the fish cooks fully on the interior without overcooking on the exterior.

What You'll Need
  • Skinless boneless salmon fillers cut into 4 fillets
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • unsalted butter
  • ground lemon zest
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice from 2 lemons
  • fresh parsley, sliced into pieces
  1. Season salmon with salt and a few ground pepper. Heat 4 tsp butter in a 12-inch nonstick pan until hot and shiny over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon, without moving, on the skin side, until golden and crisp for about 4 minutes.
  2. Carefully flip the fillets and reduce the heat to medium. In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add 1 teaspoon of lemon zest and 4 teaspoons of lemon juice to the pan. Spoon on to the salmon while cooking the salmon.
  3. Continue cooking for 4 to 5 minutes as you wish. Transfer to a plate and serve.
