7-minute Crispy Skin Salmon
The easiest, most foolproof method for getting crispy skin salmon every time.
- 2 salmon fillet portions–scaled and de-boned
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
Preheat a cast iron pan to medium low heat, level 4 on an electric stovetop.
Drizzle the skin side of the salmon portions with oil, and season liberally with salt.
Place the salmon skin-side-down onto a square of parchment paper and lower into the pan, paper side down.
Hold the salmon down firmly with a fish spatula for 15 seconds to prevent it from buckling.
Cook the salmon on the skin side for 5-7 minutes depending on thickness. Season on the flesh side.
Flip the salmon over and finish cooking on the flesh side for 30 seconds.
