Pan Roasted Salmon Filets

Two Seven Ounce Salmon Filets

Two Teaspoons Light Olive Oil Or Canola Oil

One Teaspoon Of Paprika

3/4 Teaspoon Of Sea Salt

3/4 Teaspoon Of Garlic Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Of Black Pepper

1/4 Teaspoon Of Cayenne Pepper

1/4 Teaspoon Of Onion Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Of Dried Oregano

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Into a small mixing bowl, add the paprika, sea salt, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder, and dried oregano. Mix well to combine all of these spices.

Place a small amount of the spice mixture evenly on the flesh side of the salmon filets. Note: You do not need to use all of the spice rub. Save any leftover spice rub in a jar for future use.   

Put a non-stick saute pan on medium high heat for three minutes. Add the canola oil to the pan. Note: You will know when the pan is hot enough to start cooking when the oil begins to smoke a little. Place the salmon filets flesh side down into the saute pan. Let the fish cook without touching for three minutes. Turn the fish filets over to the skin side.

Finish cooking in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes. The skin should be brown and crispy. Serve with lemon wedges and/or basil pesto suce.
