I have not pan-fry salmon for ages. I always took the least time consuming method by baking it in the oven. After a while, I guess I miss the crispy crust of pan-frying salmon. This salmon dish is super duper easy especially if you already have the McCormick Lemon & Pepper seasoning salt in your cupboard. I saw this seasoning in my pantry and realized that I hardly used this seasoning. So, I took it out to be used in my salmon. The salmon fillets that I bought was without skin. So, in order to get the crispy crust that I was looking for, I patted both sides of my salmon with cornstarch. And this got the job done. I served it up with my Asian style stir-fried broccoli. Or you can do my American style microwave butter broccoli, even easier.
3 Salmon fillets, I cut it into smaller pieces so that it's easier to pan-fry in my wok
McCormick Lemon & Pepper seasoning salt to taste
2-3 Tbsp. Cornstarch, use as neededOil for pan-frying
1. Season both sides of salmon fillet with lemon & pepper seasoning salt. Pat both side with cornstarch.
2. Heat up your wok or frying pan. Add a little oil. When hot, slowly add in the salmon.
3. Pan-fry on one side first, then flip over and pan-fry the other side. It's cooked when you press it in the middle of salmon and it's not soft. Serve hot with your favorite sides.
