We like to keep a few salmon filets in the freezer. They defrost quickly, are healthy, and easy to cook. To prepare salmon, we place the defrosted filets on a plate, cover with 1-2 tablespoons olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and freshly ground pepper, some chopped garlic, and maybe a pinch of fresh herbs, and . Allow the filets to marinate for a few minutes, and then flip (you don’t have to flip if you’re using filets with the skin on, which is what you see here).
After marinating for 5-10 minutes, we place the filets in a very hot cast iron or grill pan with a tablespoon of olive oil. A few minutes of cooking on each side, and they’re done! We serve with a side of boiled fresh pasta (with olive oil, minced garlic, grated fresh parmesan, and some chopped fresh herbs from one of our patio pots), and some steamed vegetables. So easy…and only about 15 minutes start to finish.
