Hi, I am Rona Lewis, fitness and lifestyle coach and healthy chef. Today, we are going to do a version of salmon without foil and it happens to be one of my favorite ways of making salmon. That is pan-searing. Pan-searing is one of the simplest ways to get the most flavor out of salmon. You only need a couple of ingredients. Obviously, you need a piece of salmon, between four-six ounces is perfect for one person. A little salt and pepper and a combination of butter and olive oil in the pan. You want a hot pan. You want a combination of the oil and the butter so that it does not burn so quickly. You can get a hotter flame. My favorite pan to use for this is something that I am going to show you in a second, come on. Let us go. This is my favorite kind of pan, it is cast iron. They have been using it for years and it is still the best kind. Now, like I said, you just use a little pepper and salt. As you can see, I have already started to heat the pan. Now the reason that pan-searing in a cast-iron pan works so much better is because these pans actually get hotter than the more modern non-stick pans. Like I said, I am doing a combination of butter and olive oil so that as it melts it will not smoke as much. As you can see, it is going to smoke some. You want it nice and hot. Keep mixing. As soon as that melts, you will be able to put in the salmon. Now when it goes in, you want to hear it sizzle, ready! Does not that sound nice? Now each side will probably take two to three minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon. The smart thing to do is leave it alone. A lot of people fidget with it and move it. You will not get a crust if that happens. You want to leave it alone and as soon as it forms that lovely caramelized crust it will move on it's on. I will show you what it looks like when it is done. Here we go! This is what it looks like at the end. Look at that wonderful crust. It really caramelizes in and of itself. It is a great fish to make when you just want something simple. It lends itself to a myriad of side dishes. It is a great way to make salmon without foil. I am Rona Lewis, fitness and lifestyle coach, and healthy chef. Thanks for joining me, we will see you soon.
