Pan-Fried Wild Salmon Recipe Ingredients :

  • 2 (3 ounce) fillets salmon, with skin
  • sea salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

How to Make Pan-Fried Wild Salmon Recipe:


Rinse salmon fillets and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels; season with sea salt.


Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.


Cook salmon fillets, skin-side up, in hot oil until flesh is golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes; flip and continue cooking until skin is slightly browned, about 5 minutes more. Use a slotted spatula to remove salmon, leaving drippings in the skillet.


Remove skin from salmon; fry skin in drippings in the skillet until crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve crispy skin with salmon.
