Just a few ingredients. About 15 minutes. And, you have a healthy meal! I need not tell you how good salmon is for you. And, preparing it like this with the lemon, garlic and just salt and pepper, you have a citruseeeee tender salmon with a taste of garlic and spinach in every bite.
Getting the skillet really hot is the key to achieving your crispy pan sear on top. You’ll be cooking it just a few minutes, and, no it won’t burn. It will just flash fry and seal in precious juices, flavor and taste. The best way, I think, to eat salmon is when the center is tender and translucent. If you want yours more done, then cook a few minutes longer. Letting it rest after its searing journey is important.
If you’re sharing this salmon, use a sharp knife to divide it. Don’t worry about flakes of meat that fall by the wayside, they’ll be eaten!
