Recipe Ingredients for Salt and Pepper Salmon

1 1/2 lbs salmon fillet
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp Freshly ground black pepper
6 tsp unsalted butter

Recipe Directions for Salt and Pepper Salmon

  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.
