Quick Pan-Fried Salmon

When my mother came to visit me for a few days, she purchased three packets of salmon. I told her that she shouldn’t buy salmon since she would have to keep them cold during her 8-hour trip back to Arkansas. She bought them anyway promising that she would keep them in a ice-filled cooler. A few hours into her car trip, she called me and said frantically, “I forgot to take the salmon out of the freezer! I left them at your house!” I laughed and said, “I told you that you shouldn’t have bought the salmon.” After I promised her I would eat the salmon for her so that they wouldn’t go to waste, she doubted me.

After I saw a quicker method of cooking salmon than the way I usually do it (oven-baked while wrapped in foil), I decided to try that out with one of the pieces of salmon. It was so good, that I’m going to eat the second piece of salmon today. Thanks, mom! 😀 I told you that I would eat it!

Quickie Grilled or Pan-Fried Salmon
adapted from Noob Cook

Ingredients (1 serving)

  1. 1 piece of salmon fillet
  2. Lawry’s Seasoning Salt, kosher salt, or organic sea salt
  3. Freshly cracked black pepper
  4. One or two herbs you have in the pantry (optional)
  5. 1/2 – 1 Tbsp of butter or olive oil


Pull out the bones from the salmon fillet using your fingers or a tweezer, or use the boneless variety, like I did. Season the fish with salt or seasoning salt, black pepper, and herbs.Melt a knob of butter and spread it evenly on the griddle pan (or use olive oil). Grill the salmon fillet, skin side down first, for about 4 minutes each side (or till lightly browned) over medium fire. I pan-fried my fish, and it was perfect!
