Pan Seared Salmon

Salmon is delicious with exceptional nutritional value and is rich in omega 3 fatty acids . My Piggies love salmon like I do but Daddy is a no fish man. This orangey hued salmon can be served in variety of ways and I normally baked them with mixed herbs and cheese.Their flesh ranges in color from pink to red to orange . Needlessto say, the price ranges too according to the species. I paid RM39 /kg :)

But , for today dinner, I pan seared them for a change. Rub salmon with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper . Use a non-stick pan, brush with olive oil and on low heat pan seared the salmon till half cooked. Add fresh Italian parsley (chopped coarsely) and fresh thyme –mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of butter and as the salmon is half cooked, spread the herbs on the surface and pan seared it till the fish is juz cooked.

Grate some lemon rind onto the salmon and squeeze some lemon juice over it. Served hot. The fragrance from the buttery herbs added omphhh to the salmon plus the lemon juice gave it a nice tangy taste …. Managed to force Daddy to try some (“,) It sounded not complimentary to my cooking coz I have to forced him to eat :))))))

  1. My favorite is still cod fish. Salmon more fishy smell.

  2. Your salmon looks good! I like to cook salmon for my kids. The only dish I am good at is, salmon fried rice!

  3. @little inbox: Ya,I agree with you but with the black pepper and herbs it sort of cover the fishy smell and plus the lemon juice , I din get the fishy smell and it tasted fantastic. :)

    @HHB : :) do try it this way. It is truly delicious..haha now I am still thinking of it (",) Salmon is good for kids and adults...lots of omega 3!

  4. Just want to ask ... when you pan fry it, does it splatter as when we fry fish? Wondering whether the fishy smell will linger in the kitchen..
