CRISPY SALMON

INGREDIENTS:

• about 1 tablespoon canola oil (enough to coat the bottom of the pan)
• four 8-ounce skin-on salmon fillets
• fine sea salt
• freshly ground black or white pepper
• flour for dusting

PREPERATION:

1) Heat oven to 400 degrees. Heat the oil in a large, oven-and flame proof saute pan on the stovetop until the oil is very hot, but not smoking. 2) Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper and dust with flour. Blow of excess. 3) Put the fish in the pan, skin side down, and presss down on the fish with a spatula. (The skin immediately contracts and buckles, but you want to keep it all in contact with the pan for maxium crisping.) Sear on the stovetop over medium heat until golden brown on the bottom, about 3 minutes. 4) Turn the fish over, put the pan in the oven, and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, until a metal skewer can be easily inserted into the center of the fillet and, if left for 5 seconds, feels just warm when touched to your lip. Serve immediately. Serves 4
