To me, the best recipes are often times the easiest and this simple pan salmon recipe fits that description perfectly. It is one of those food made simple recipes that really, it is just a matter of having a couple of ingredients and about 10 minutes. This salmon is only lightly seasoned and cooked in screaming hot pan but really packs a punch of flavor that is surprising. The salmon forms a bit of a crust from the hot pan that seals in all of the flavor and the moisture. If you like this recipe, you may also be interested in my simply spicy salmon recipe or my sweet balsamic glazed salmon recipe, both of which are just as simple and packed with flavor.
