Recipe Notes

  • If you want to sear the cooked salmon, heat vegetable oil in a cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add salmon, skin-side down, and sear for 1½ minutes. Flip and sear for an additional 1½ minutes. 
  • You may also use other varieties of aromatics such as fresh thyme, dill, parsley, or citrus zest.
