Pan Seared Crispy Herb Stuffed Salmon with Dressed Tomatoes

The key to cooking salmon is simple: leave it alone. Too many great steaks of salmon are ruined when guys get impatient and flip it too soon. Flipping only once will lock in the flavor and create a tender and moist cut of fish that your dinner guests will never forget. Better yet, it’s high in protein and provides a full day’s requirement of vitamin D, B12 and an essential omega-3 fatty acid.

 

PRZ TIP: Keep the crisp skin on to help the salmon cook all the way through without charring or overcooking the meat.

 

Dressed Tomatoes:

 

Ingredients

  • Box of cherry tomatoes
  • 4 leaves of basil
  • 1 tsp of balsamic vinaigrette
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ lemon
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

5. Heat some olive oil in a stove pan and get as hot as possible. Place the skin side of the salmon down first. Leave it alone and let it cook for 5 minutes. You want the skin as crispy as possible. Flip and let it cook on the meat side for about 3 minutes, for medium-rare. Top with dressed tomatoes.
