Skillet Seared Salmon-The Little Shop of Olive Oils

Skillet Seared Salmon



  • Season the salmon with sea salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
  • Mix the honey, half of the olive oil, balsamic and a pinch of salt together. Stir to combine well.
  • Heat up an oven-safe skillet on high heat. Add the remaining olive oil. Pan-fry the salmon, skin side down first, for about 1 minute. Turn the salmon over and cook for 1 minute. Turn it over again so the skin side is at the bottom.
  • Add the garlic into the pan, sauté until lightly browned. Add the honey mixture and lemon wedges into the skillet, reduce the sauce until it's sticky.
  • Broil the salmon in the oven for 1 minute or until the surface becomes slightly charred (optional step).
  • Garnish with basil (optional)
