Pan-fried salmon

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 to the stove after a day spent between work, children and household chores? This is why we thought we'd tell you how we do it, revealing the recipe for pan-fried salmon. Fish main courses , in fact, are usually snubbed due to the belief that they are difficult and time-consuming to prepare. Once you try the pan-fried salmon steak, however, you will realize that this is not the case!

You can prepare it with fresh or frozen fish (taking care to let it thaw in the fridge) and very few ingredients are enough to naturally enhance the flavour. We will use the slice but similarly, you can also cook the salmon fillet in a pan, perfect for the little ones. Let's get to the stove following the photo steps or the video recipe to prepare it at home (if you want at the end you can also sprinkle a few drops of lemon on the meat just like we do).

4. Serve the salmon with the cooking juices without letting it cool and accompany it with a side dish of your choice .

We advise you to enjoy freshly cooked salmon but if you have leftovers you can keep it in the fridge for a couple of days. It will tend to dry out a bit, so you can turn it into an excellent pasta sauce, perhaps adding a little cream.

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