For day four of our healthier dinner plan I decided on salmon. Salmon is both healthy and delicious. I usually make salmon on the grill, even in the winter, but today I thought I’d forgo the freezing weather and pan sear the salmon. I season my salmon with seafood seasoning and dill weed. You can season salmon with salt, pepper, and paprika or salt, garlic and dill.
For these two salmon fillets, I push small squares of butter into the flesh side (about ¼ Tablespoons of margarine for each fillet). Then I very lightly rub olive oil across the whole fillet. Add seasonings to the top of the fillet.
Spread about a teaspoon of olive oil in the pan then heat it up to medium high. Once the pan is hot add the fish fillet flesh side down. Cook for 3 minutes. After three minutes flip the fish over and cook for 6-8 minutes more on the skin side, or until fish easily flakes.
I served this with steam fresh green beans and rice. Delicious day four. Tomorrow Dave says he wants red meat, so I’m going
to make steak, but healthier.
