SEARED SALMON FILETS
4 (1-inch thick) boneless salmon filets with skin on
2 tablespoons sesame oil or olive oil
Salt and pepper
Small amount of cumin
Heat oven to 425. Season the salmon with cumin, salt and pepper. Heat a non-stick skillet with a metal handle over medium- high heat for 2 to 3 minutes then pour oil into the pan and heat it for 1 minute. Place the salmon, skin side up in the skillet, and sear it for 2 to 3 minutes or until you see a crust start to form around the edges. Don’t flip the salmon. Carefully transfer the skillet into the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Carefully remove from the oven using heavy-duty pot holders and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
