The Magic Recipe: Pan-Seared Salmon with a Citrus-Herb Salad
4 salmon fillets
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
Mixed greens (like arugula and spinach)
1 orange, segmented
1 lemon, zest and juice
Fresh herbs (basil, dill, or parsley), chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
A pinch of sugar (optional)
Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
Place salmon, skin-side up, in the skillet. Cook for about 4 minutes until golden brown.
Flip the salmon and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the desired doneness.
While the salmon cooks, toss the mixed greens, orange segments, lemon zest, and herbs in a bowl.
Whisk together lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, and a pinch of sugar. Drizzle over the salad.
Plate the salmon and serve with the citrus-herb salad on the side.
