Salmon is easily a household favorite of ours for many reasons. It’s easy to prepare, it provides incredible flavor and pairs well with almost anything and everything. Plus, it contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals and omega fatty acids. So, what’s not to love!?
One of my go to methods of cooking salmon is baking. Sheet pan salmon might be one of the easiest. But, when you bake it, the extra crisp of the salmon on each side isn’t quite the same. So, pan searing the salmon is the answer! Now, I have a few key steps and tips when pan searing salmon to ensure it comes out perfectly tender and crisp:
Once the salmon fillets are done cooking, remove them from the pan and set aside. Now, I know you might be tempted to wipe your pan clean when you begin to make the sauce. But, dont! You absolutely want all of that juice and oil kept in the pan for your sauce. That is where a lot of the flavor comes from.
I recommend pairing this salmon with steamed white rice, orzo or your favorite pasta. It will turn this tuscan salmon dish into a simple yet elegant weeknight dinner for the whole family. Just you or you and your significant other? No worries! You will have leftovers for the week.
