How to cook
Prepare salmon fillet
  • Wash & dry the salmon fillet with a kitchen towel and season the skin of the fish with salt.
Start cooking
  • Heat the pan over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
  • Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Place the fish skin-side down in the pan, away from you so the oil does not splash.
  • Using a spatula, gently press down on the salmon to ensure the skin gets crispy.
  • Do not flip the salmon prematurely, otherwise the skin will stick to the pan.
  • Cook the salmon skin-side down for 5 minutes.
  • Season the top of the fish with salt and flip it over to cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Serve & enjoy!
