“This is an easy recipe I saw demonstrated at Central Market in Austin. I tried it at home and it is very easy, quick and delicious. I like serving this with white rice cooked in chicken broth.”

  2. Rinse the Salmon fillet in cold water and pat dry with paper towel.
  3. Heat remaining 1 T of Olive Oil and in a large frying pan. Add butter and place Salmon in pan, skin side up. Add a pinch of kosher salt salt to the salmon, and cook for 3 minutes. Do not move the fillets, so that a sear forms.
