How To Cook Salmon: Quick & Easy Salmon In 5 Minutes


Are you interested in eating more seafood and increasing the amount of good fats in your diet? Are you intimidated by cooking salmon? Well, I am here to solve all of these issues for you.

I've been splurging on Whole Foods Atlantic salmon filets for weeks. They are $4.99 per portion and make for a quick and healthy lunch or dinner.

I like my salmon cooked all the way through (unless it's inside a sushi roll, in which case, make it completely rare!). I've found the quickest and easiest way to prepare a salmon filet is as follows:

1) heat a skillet with a bit of olive oil in it
2) put the salmon filet skin side down and season the fish with salt and pepper
3) after 1-2 minutes of searing the skin, add a few splashes of white wine, water, or chicken broth to the skillet (be careful not to splash yourself), and simmer the fish with the lid on for 3-5 minutes depending no how thick the filet is and how cooked through you want your final product to be
4) serve salmon, after removing the skin, on a bed of arugula dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper, and cut up vegetables of your choice (avocado, tomatoes, radishes, cucumbers, etc).
