Pan seared Salmon

This is yet another first attempt .... Pan seared Salmon.  I normally bake or grill salmon, but pan seared turned out just as good.
Besides convenience, salmon is an excellent source of high quality protein, rich in antioxidants, high in heart healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, in short, a great source of nutrients for both the young and old alike.




just rub in some sea salt and freshly ground pepper and marinate for about half an  hour





salmon is done when it is opaque on the outside yet slightly translucent in the centre





serve with  Portabello Mushrooms, squeeze in some lemon juice, some lettuce and ....... yummy

  8. Instead of mushroom and garlic, I prepare a sauce made from chopped ginger, garlic, onions, chilli padi, black bean, a pinch of salt and sugar, water and corn flour.

  10. I've never try out salmon before. Heart breaking when looking at the price. Plus neither of my kids nor my hubby like it! However, I still have the catch that my hubby brought home the other day. He went fishing again! He goes fishing almost every week lol. However, your recipe looks really deicious and the salmon also looks perfectly well done.

    Oh yes, the Norwegian salmon is going for 45 ringgit per kg, used to be 35 rgt or thereabout.
    But once in a while, pamper yourself a bit, moreover it has Omega 3. My recipe is very simple, sea salt, black pepper and olive oil. We call it 'cheng tim'.

    Yup, easy job!
