Season salmon with salt and pepper on all sides. Pat the seasoning into fish.

In a large sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add salmon, cook until browned, then flip over to brown the other sides. Remove from pan and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Serve by spooning the sauce over the salmon.

  1. The main component of this recipe, as seen on TV, was omitted. On TV, Leslie cooked the salmon until brown on both sides, but the middle of the salmon was still not cooked. She placed the salmon in the oven so it could cook through. Want I needed to know specifically is what temperature did Leslie put the oven on, and how long did she bake the salmon until it was done. Mind you, It was an episode from 2017.

    Thanks

  2. I always seem to cook my salmon too long. How long do you cook salmon on each side?

  3. The picture clearly shows capers in the sauce. However they have been omitted from the sauce ingredients list.
