One of my favorite ways to prepare salmon is also the easiest.
After a salmon is filleted I cut the salmon into steaks about 3-4 inches wide, depending on the thickness of the fish.
Next, I will pull the steaks out of the fridge, place on a cutting board and skin the fish steaks.
After skinning the fish, simply season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a little bit of dill. You can also use garlic salt instead of salt and garlic.
Next, I will heat up a frying pan with olive oil to medium heat. If there is a layer of fat on the fish from skinning, you can use less oil as the fish will actually create its own oil in the pan from the fat layer.
Then I simply cook fish, watching it closely from the side to see that it is cooking all the way through. Be careful not to over cook.
This method of cooking salmon makes the fish taste like salmon in a nice restaurant.
