Pan-Fried Salmon

One of the fastest, easiest ways to cook salmon is to simply fry it in a pan for a few minutes. All you need is a skinless salmon filet, your seasoning of choice, and some olive oil. After heating the oil, place the filet in a pan and watch the color change to a lighter pink until it’s fully cooked. Garnish with lemon and thyme and pair with your favorite vegetable side for a delicious and healthy dinner.
