Salmon in a pan

Pan-fried salmon is a second fish dish that is as simple as it is quick to prepare. Here is our perfect recipe for steaks and fillets.

We are always in a hurry and too often we fall back on ready-made and packaged dishes due to lack of time. In fact, who wants to get in the kitchen after a day spent between work, children and housework? This is why we decided to tell you how we do it, revealing the recipe for salmon in the pan. The fish main courses, in fact, are usually snubbed because of the belief that they are difficult and long to prepare. Once you have tried the salmon steak in a pan, however, you will realize that this is not the case!

You can prepare it with fresh or frozen fish (taking care to let it defrost in the refrigerator) and very few ingredients are enough to naturally enhance its flavor. We will use the steak but similarly, you can also cook the salmon fillet in a pan, perfect for the little ones.

We advise you to taste the freshly made salmon but if you have any leftover you can keep it in the refrigerator for a couple of days. It will tend to dry out a bit, so you can turn it into a great pasta sauce, perhaps adding a little cream.

You can keep your salmon steaks in a pan for up to 1 day in the refrigerator, well covered with cling film. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
