Loading...

This simple meal prepared with fresh, colorful ingredients is a wonderful example of such a lovely thing.



A mildly spicy salmon fillet placed into a hot cast-iron skillet to sear to a succulent, golden-brown perfection, and then topped with a mediterranean-inspired salsa fresca that offers a bit of cool and bit of bright-tanginess, makes for a perfect pan seared salmon, and makes an appetite happy.

It gives comfort, and becomes a delectable little luxury of a meal.


It warms from within, and offers an opportunity for gratitude for each bite taken.

Pan Seared Salmon with Mediterranean Salsa Fresca Recipe



Ingredients:

• 4 salmon fillets, skinned (roughly 1 ¼ – 1 ½ pounds)
• Canola oil
• 1 teaspoon paprika
• 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
• ½ teaspoon granulated onion
• ½ teaspoon ground cumin
• ½ teaspoon ground coriander
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• ¼ teaspoon black pepper
• Pinch cayenne pepper

Preparation:
  1. Place the salmon fillets onto a plate or into a large bowl, and drizzle in about 2 tablespoon of the oil; then, sprinkle in the paprika, the granulated garlic and onion, the cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, cayenne and lemon zest, and toss everything gently to coat the fillets evenly and well; allow the salmon to marinate for at least 20 minutes, or even over night.

  3. Serve with seared salmon generously topped with the Mediterranean Salsa Fresca, and a side of Toasted Couscous, if desired.
