Pan Seared Salmon is the ultimate way to enjoy salmon just like they make it at the restaurant, with a golden crispy skin and a moist interior. Let sizzle for 2 minutes, then use your tongs to loosen the fillet from the pan to avoid the flesh from sticking (unless using a non-stick pan). These methods keep the fish moist and delicious. Alternatively, you can thread a pre-soaked bamboo skewer (so it doesn't burn) through their ends to get them to mostly lie flat. You can, however, cook skinless salmon fillets in a pan and get a nice crust to them as well, with a few key steps. Try pan frying salmon and you'll have a flavorful meal ready in minutes! Leave the salmon to cook for 2-3 minutes. It’s no secret that salmon is an oily fish, the we know that the skin itself is especially oily.
