Pan-seared salmon happens every week in my house! It looks impressive, but it’s so easy, fool-proof (unless you walk away and forget about it), and takes less than 10 minutes.
Here is how I make sure my salmon is perfectly done, every time. This method works for me whether I’m broiling the salmon, baking it in the oven at 450 F, or cooking it on the grill.
Note: I’ve also made a video showing how to perfectly pan-sear salmon — now my favorite method!
