Super Simple Salmon


4 (4 oz) Salmon Fillets
1 T (.5 oz) Canola Oil
1 T Garlic Powder
1 T Dried Basil
1/2 t Salt

Place salmon fillets, skin side down on a plate. Drizzle with oil and coat both sides well. Mix together garlic powder, basil, and salt. Sprinkle liberally over just the top of the salmon

Heat a pan over medium high heat for about 5 minutes. Place salmon in pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, skin side down. DO NOT MOVE SALMON. When skin side has browned, flip over seasoned side down. With some tongs, peel the skin off the salmon. Gently rub any gray colored meat off with the tongs since it has a fishy taste. Put remaining seasoning/rub on the now skin-free side.

Turn heat down, cover with lid, and cook salmon until golden brown. Flip and cook an additional 3-4 minutes to brown the other side. Let sit a few minutes before serving.

Note: if you are confused about how to peel off the skin, please have a look at this video.
