Aromatic Salmon Steak in a Pan: Quick Recipe
*The dish will have a more vibrant taste if you use chilled fish. Of course, you can also work with thawed raw material if there's no other option available.
Crispy pan-fried salmon is a delightful addition to your everyday menu, making it tastier and more vibrant. The recipe, accompanied by photos, captures the dish's appetizing appeal. Salmon steaks are most commonly used, but fillets with skin can also be pan-fried. It's advisable not to remove the skin, as it can be pan-fried to a crispy crust, turning it into a true culinary masterpiece. The fish cooks very quickly, so it's crucial not to overcook it in the skillet. Otherwise, the fish may turn out dry and tough.

Salmon can be pan-fried on a regular skillet or a grill. In the latter case, you can get away with using minimal vegetable oil and still achieve an incredibly tasty dish, akin to a restaurant's offering. When it comes to spices, it's recommended to use them sparingly to avoid overshadowing the natural taste of the salmon. Fresh vegetables and herbs make an excellent side dish. Serving the fish with a slice of lemon or lime, from which you can squeeze juice if desired, adds a refreshing touch.

Preparation Method:

1. Rinse the salmon steaks, pat them dry with a paper towel, and place them in a flat dish.

4. Remaining olive oil in the skillet, heat it up. When it's hot, place the salmon pieces. Fry the fish for 2 minutes on each side until a crispy crust forms.
5. Reduce the heat to a minimum, cover the skillet with a lid, and let the fish cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until done.

With high-heat searing, the fish quickly forms a crust, keeping all the juices inside. The result is incredibly tender salmon with an appetizing crust!
