Pan Seared Salmon Fillets with Skin



Whether you’re struggling to find good pan seared salmon recipes or just don’t know how to cook frozen salmon fillets, look no further. In the video below, we will cover all the details on cooking salmon fillets. You should be excited! Salmon is a very healthy, tasty, and easy dish to prepare.



Arguably the best way to cook salmon fillets is the one you can do right in your kitchen. This method is for easy pan seared salmon fillets; just follow the steps and use a seasoning of salt and pepper. When it’s time to apply oil, use olive oil, as it’s both healthier and tastier. If you’re unsure about whether it’s done, just let it sit for another minute. The nice thing about seared salmon fillet is that even if you make mistakes, it’ll still taste great. Just keep yourself on the right pace with the meal and everything will go smoothly.


Or, if you want a different taste for your frozen salmon fillets, you can try this simple seasoning. First, melt some butter over low heat. Mix in some garlic powder and a fair amount of lemon juice. Let it cool, and then follow the process of cooking your seared salmon fillet. When the time comes to add seasoning, pour your mixture over the salmon. This method takes a little extra time, but is well worth it, since even with that the meal will only take 10 to 15 minutes- tops!



For the more practiced chef, step it up a little! Gather your ingredients. You'll need some lemon and smoked paprika. A pinch of black pepper for a little extra pep. Throw in some garlic powder. Like this, you can mix up your usual salmon routine in a distinctive but delectable way. There's another bonus here. Once you know the best ratios for everything, it doesn’t affect the salmon fillets cooking time! Perks like that make this meal one that is always nice for wanting something quick and unique.


No matter what you do, you’re going to want to include some good seared salmon sides. While the traditional options of rice and steamed veggies are great, mixing it up is important. For our health conscious folks, make a salad of spinach, cherry tomatoes, and red onions. This nutritious side goes well with salmon and adds some of the nutrients you just can’t get from eating meat alone. Stay away from dressings, as they add a lot of unnecessary sugars and defeat the purpose of eating salad. Instead, put your salmon fillet over the salad and eat it all together. You will find the flavors complimentary and the meal top notch.



Another great option is sweet potatoes. A very easy way to prepare these delicious dishes is to take some olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper. Just enough oil to lightly cover the sweet potato! Preheat your oven to 425. Mix the salt and pepper into the oil and coat the sweet potato. Wrap it in foil and put it on a cooking sheet. Let it cook for 45 minutes, more if larger. To check if it’s done, poke it with a fork- other than the foil, there should be almost no resistance. Once it’s ready, carefully pull it out of the oven. Leave it wrapped for now, and prepare your salmon as above. When you’re done, the sweet potato will have cooled to a palatable temperature. Easily scaled up to serve a group.



You now have all the information you could need on pan seared salmon. Go wild and treat yourself to the best meal you’ve ever prepared!
