The Hand’s Pan Roasted Sockeye Salmon

The Hand’s Pan Roasted Sockeye Salmon Recipe

This pan-roasted preparation is a classic that can, of course, be used with any variety of salmon. Nelly notes that the only trick is basting the fish with a spoon, while tilting the pan.

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 15 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • 2 portions sockeye salmon (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter
  • handful fresh thyme or tarragon leaves (optional)
  • chopped parsley (optional)
  • lemon wedges (optional)

Directions

SEASON

Pat sockeye dry with paper towel and season on both sides with salt and pepper.

SEAR

Heat large cast iron skillet over high heat. When the pan is hot, add oil. Place fillets skin-side down in pan (carefully as spattering can happen). Lower heat to medium and let sizzle until fish is caramelized and becomes opaque at edges, about 2 minutes

TURN

Carefully turn fillets and add butter and optional herbs to pan. Tilt pan to pool melted butter on one side and use spoon to baste fish with it. Baste repeatedly, until fish is golden all over and cooked through (about 1 minute, depending on thickness).

SERVE

Serve immediately with optional chopped herbs and lemon wedges.
