Pan-Seared Salmon

Pan searing the salmon creates a crispy outer crust while keeping it moist and tender inside. This recipe takes less than 30 minutes, making it great for a weeknight or weekend dinner. Leftovers can be reheated and combined with vegetables or added to an entrée salad for a filling, satisfying lunch or dinner. Aim for 4 ounces of salmon twice a week to consume the recommended amount of omega-3 fatty acids.
