How do you sear salmon?
- Start by adding a Tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet. Heat to medium-low heat. Salt and pepper the salmon and place skin side down for 5 minutes. Flip to the other side and continue to cook the other side for 5 minutes. Cook the salmon until brown and flaky.
As soon as this salmon is nice and crispy brown you create the most amazing creamy lemon dill sauce. Salmon and a creamy dill sauce go so AMAZING together! The sauce is so easy to make but is creamy and delicious with a slight lemon tang. This meal is so good that I am already craving it again.
