|My husband Max recently|
went fishing in Yakutat, Alaska with
my brother who luckily caught
this delightful white king salmon...
Serving: (2 to 4)
Prep: 5 Mins. |
Pan-Sear: 13 to 15 Mins.
1/3 cup ketchup
--(Max only uses Heinz)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
½ teaspoon freshly lemon juice
Pinch of Sitka Seafood Seasoning
--(or Old Bay Seasoning)
4 (8 oz.) boneless skin-on white (or red) king salmon fillets, 1-1/2” thick
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon unsalted butter
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
|Sitka Seafood Seasoning|
(found here on Amazon)
--1/2 fresh lemon, cut into 4 wedges for serving
Prepare remoulade sauce by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl, and place in refrigerator for flavors to meld.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salmon fillets equally with garlic powder, sea salt, and ground pepper. Place salmon fillets in hot skillet presentation side down (flesh side), and sear, uncovered, for about 4 to 5 minutes without disturbing, until golden brown. Reduce heat to low, turn fillets over (skin-side down), cover, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, just until fillets are cooked through and flake easily with a fork.
Serve salmon fillets with fresh lemon wedges and remoulade sauce alongside. ~ Enjoy!
Tip: Cooking time varies depending upon thickness of salmon fillets. The ‘general rule of thumb’ is 10 minutes total per 1" thickness of fillet.
