We really like salmon fillets and we have tried different variations and recipes over the last few weeks. This is a quick and easy one that preserve the taste of salmon! The sesame seeds add a lovely crunchiness to the salmon without overpowering the flavor. Pan-frying it brings out a sesame/charcoal-like flavor. It also prevents the salmon fillet from burning, while also keeping the middle nice and soft. If you buy wild salmon fillets, give this recipe a try!
Ingredients (2 Servings):
- 1 lb / 500g Wild Salmon Fillets
- Black Sesame Seeds
- Sea Salt
- Extra-virgin Olive Oil
- Wash the salmon fillets and dry them with a kitchen towel. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on each fillet.
- Sprinkle the sesame seeds on the fillets and press with your fingers to make sure they stick to the meat.
- Pre-heat a cast iron pan. Drizzle a little bit of extra-virgin olive oil on the fillets and place them on the pan.
- After 4-5mins (depending on the thickness of the fillets), flip the fillets on the other side and cook for another 4-5mins.
- Season the fillets with sea salt before serving.
