Salt and Pepper Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1 Salmon Fillets (about 2 pounds), skin on, 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick

  • Kosher Salt

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • freshly ground black pepper

Method

  • 1.

    Run your finger up and down the center of the salmon feeling for any pin bones. Remove any that you find with a needle-nosed pliers or tweezers. With a sharp knife cutting across the width of the salmon, divide it into 4 equal portions. Lightly salt the salmon and let sit a couple minutes; this will help you get crispy skin.

  • 2.

    Heat a 2-count, about 2 tablespoons, of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the oil is almost smoking. Season the salmon with pepper, and rub about 1 1/2 tablespoons butter on the skin side of each fillet. Add the salmon to the pan, skin-side down. To get super crispy skin, cook the salmon almost to completion, about 6 minutes.

  • 3.

    Flip the salmon and cook until flesh side is nicely seared, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • 4.

    Transfer the salmon to a platter and serve with the Smashed Potatoes.
