I just love cooking fish. It doesn't take much time or a lot of fuss, and the results are delicious! This is a very simple recipe, similar to how my mom used to cook it for us. It goes perfect with a side dish like mashed potatoes or seasoned cheesy rice and some veggies. Simple and delicious. Enjoy!
-4 salmon filets, skin on
-5 Tbs vegetable oil
-1/2 Tbs smoked paprika
-1/2 Tbs cayenne
-1/2 tsp dried thyme
-1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
-1 tsp salt
Pat dry the salmon filets and set aside.
Heat oil in large skillet.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the paprika, cayenne, thyme, oregano and salt. Generously season the top of each salmon filet.
Once the oil is very hot (smoky), turn off the heat and add the season fish, flesh side down. Cook for a couple of minutes, then turn the stove back on, on medium heat. Continue cooking for a couple more minutes. Carefully, flip the fish with the skin side down. Cook for about 5 more minutes. Enjoy!
