Instructions

  • Pat salmon dry, then season with salt, pepper, paprika and blackening seasoning (if using). Set aside.

  • Add salmon, skin side down (if using salmon with skin), and cook 3 minutes. While salmon cooks, baste frequently with sauce from the pan by spooning it over the top of the salmon.

  • Garnish with minced parsley if desired.
